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.

Salmoniform (465) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - APR 17, 2014
Poured from can to glass. Amber red hue with fluffy off-white head which lingered. Aroma is a great balance of caramel, roasted malt, melon, tangerine, pepper, pine. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and great carbonation to keep it zesty. Taste is dryish sweet initially with a really nice bitter following and then combined with a well balanced finish accented by lingering ethanol and CO2 crispness. Overall this a fantastic Imperial Red!

Chrishrt30 (97) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2014
Great deep mahogany red with a big creamy off white head. Piney, resinous, grapefruit and toffee, big malty goodness. Smooth and fruity, big stone fruit IPA soaked in liquor, toasty crystal malts and strong resins. Toffee and a good dry bitterness to finish, raw, yet surprisingly smooth IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy rust color. Fragrant resinous pine aroma. Taste - big crackery caramel malt and ample resinous hops. Notes of rye, pine, and hints of citrus and tropical fruit. Easy drinking for 8.7 ABV. Nice red IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
