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.

Enno101 (63) - - MAR 26, 2016
Appearance: dark ruby, more like a IIPA than an imperial red. Aroma: citrus out the Ying yang with some sweet caramel malt backing it up. Taste: sweet malt and a citrus bang from the hops. Overall: really nice imperial red, although not so much red in appearance and flavour. Otherwise, such an easy drinking IIPA.

Burk. Fyllig lite syrlig fruktig doft. Doften balanserad o angenäm. Smaken lite syrlig som är signifikativt för en red ipa. Här är röda bär som bärs upp av en trevlig maltighet. Ölen krämig i munnen med en bra balanserad beska. Bra.
