COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our “Velvet M-80” is a hefty, dry hopped double-red ale with a nose full of aroma, a sticky mouthfeel, a malty middle and unctuous hop flavors. G’Knight sports a surprisingly sensuous finish for a beer of its size (8.7% ABV, 60 IBUs). It’s brewed in tribute to a fellow Colorado craft beer pioneer and Vietnam vet who died fighting a 2002 wild fire outside of our Lyons hometown. For all the details behind this tribute follow this link to www.N3978Y.com. G’Mornin’. G’Day. G’Knight.

fakebeersnob (295) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Pours mahogany with an off-white head. Getting a hoppy, grassy aroma (slight citrus). Taste is hops upfront with an underlying malt sweetness. Slightly bitter back end. Lively carbonation that you can feel on tip of tongue and back of throat. Alcohol is masked pretty decently, but can feel it in the head pretty quickly. Pretty good beer. Might not be a go to beer, but will probably get again.

Bricks (917) - Delaware, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Smells of uber sweet malt. Aroma is nice medium brown with lacing and head. Tastes fairly balanced, a little heavy on the malt, but it is not too sweet. Creamy. Good.

BeerInHeaven (356) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 5, 2016
pours deep ruby amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is a wonderful sweet floral and orange citrus. The orange citrus comes through in the taste as well. Hoppy, but not all that bitter. Almost a bitter-sweetness that follows all the way through the finish. Very mild bitter linger. The 8.7% alcohol is masked incredibly well. Not boozy at all. This is really good beer. Seems every Oskar Blues I try is another home run! They’re in the IPA zone.

A good easy drinking IPA with a smooth finish no bitter after taste would recommend.

Pours a dark honey red brown with a thick, creamy head. Aroma is caramel and malt. The taste is a huge malty backbone with a bitter finish. Another excellent beer.
