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.

Beer can sampled with stegosaurus. Pours a dark copper color with a white head. Aroma of citrus, piney hops, and caramel malts. Flavor follows the aroma and is well balanced with a nice dry finish. Best beer out of a can i ever had.

Can. Cascade aroma, grapefruit with light caramel. Orange-amber pour with a large creamy/rocky/dense/spoonable/smooth cream-colored head. As for taste, medially bitter and mild with measured hoppiness and a little caramel grit. The Cascades are really coming through here in a different way - very expressive. Touch of orange and yeast, touch of Stone AB hoppiness. Grapefruit and faint pine sap. Medium-full body with a slick, sticky feel and a dry, sticky, hoppy aftertaste. Despite the heft from the alcohol, and though it only sets in late, this can be drunk rapidly and in great quantity, or sipped and savored. I have been very impressed by OB’s lineup - everything offering is solid. Bravo!

Poured an amberish copper color with a small white head. It has a really nice look to it. The aroma is of big piney hops with some grapefruit and citrus in there as well. The flavor is big with the hops, some citrus, and a hint of sweetness to mellow out the hops. The hops don’t overpower, but you get that bitter finish at the end. The finish was smooth, but you could still feel the hops on the palate. This beer had a lot going on in it. It was monster hops, but I liked how it didn’t overpower the flavor. Another great canned beer from Oskar Blues.

Canned (thanks heemer77!). Dark coppery colour with huge offwhite creamy head, which leaves a lot of lacing behind. Aroma is big time hops (grass, hay as well as freshly cut wood). Flavour is very much the same, strong hops along with a slight creamy touch and some slight stinging alcohol in the finish.

Muddy brown. Nice refreshing hoppines aroma. Bitter hoppy taste. Taste not refreshing at all, because the bitterness lingers too long.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2010 Rated 7/22/07. Cloudy amber color with a beautiful, pillowy, cream colored head. Excellent lacing all the way down the glass. Lively but balanced carbonation. Aroma is strong and hoppy, with mostly grassy, citrusy and herbal hops, accompanied by heaps of sweet caramel malt. Flavors are largely the same, again giving bold citrus, pine, and grass hop notes amidst ample caramel malt sweetness. Not overly complex. Well executed in its simplicity. Heavy on the sweet side. Sticky on the finish, as advertised. Good in small doses on rare occasions, but nothing I’d drink regularly.

Probably the best DIPA I have had since Moylander. Deep amber in color with a nice white head. Oozing hop aroma. Hops are mainly citric and biting with an excellent malt bone, very rich, with a hind of dryness. The burn isn’t there like on some. Very nice.

This is MY kinda Brew right HERE....if you don’t like this "Big. Red. Sticky." Beer, you must have a slit where your meat and potatoes are supposed to be.....I’m serious when I say the following...since this is in a can most people won’t recognize, I’m gonna start drinkin’ and drivin’ again...it’s ON like GordON, mahfuckas.

This is ok but not such a great DIPA, which it clearly is despite the description. Burnt orange with a bit of haze. Small off white head. Citrus aroma with a hint of grass. Body is a little thick, syrupy. Mildly unpleasant aftertaste. A touch of alcohol hotness. Overally I’m dissapointed, especially since their other two beers are so strong.
