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.

Tall boy. Pours a dark copper color with a small frothy off white head. Nose is resiny hops with light pine notes, sticky malt notes with light candy. Palate is quite full and sticky with a big finish that almost chokes off your air supply. Flavors of piney hops, rich sticky caramel malts, light sweet candy notes and a big presence in the mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from Bottledog. Pours a clear amber with a medium brownish white head. Nose is all the best of american hops with lots of pine and citrus. Taste follows suit with a caramel body and hints of berries. Will visit Colorado some day because of this.

Senap (331) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2014
Tjusigt rödbrun och en aning grumlig. Fyllig och intensiv smak. Viss fruktighet och beska. Mycket drickbar.

Hockert (75) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2014
From can at home. Pours dark caramel reddish with a offwhite head. Smells of caramel, citrus and hay. Tastes very caramel malty, medium to high bitterness. Tastes some kind of sweet, but not too much. Well balanced!

CPH2200 (278) - DENMARK - JUL 13, 2014
Draft. Little head with low carbonation. Smooth taste, hides alcohol dangerously well, you’d think is beer was 5% or so. Malty with caramel and dark fruit notes. Really excellent.

16oz can pours a red amber with nice head and lacing. Heavy malt aromas balanced with citrus, floral, and caramel. TYMIHA!

chimpgibbon (286) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Big blootering red number. Serious malt contender, with the thankful backup of that tropical funk punch to the nose. Does this smell of cauliflower a little? I’m getting a real vegetal front end here. Yep cauliflower cheese. Palate is rich and creamy, with a great spice note aided by fine carbonation. Taste is straight up tropical cheese fruit. Mineral maltiness to follow. Lovely balanced tail, not too dry or bitter at all despite the massive hop profile. This one is in the top 2-3 imperial IPAs I’ve had, of any colour.

Can @ Westerpark, Amsterdam. Red copper, misty head. Toffee nose and flavour. Huge resin hop presence. Dangerous....
