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.

Super clear red amber body, huge whipped cream yellow beige head, some laces; Quite big fresh pine hoppy nose, there is a slight unfitting buttery vanilla, dry wood touch; Big a little to sharp carbonation a little to fat yet thin body pleasantly bitter but not a fresh enough bitterness; Long pleasantly bitter finish, not fresh enough pine aromas but a little to malty caramel as well. Nice very drinkable beer that has a few flaws to be perfect to me.

Can from IrishBoy. Nice caramelly and strong hop aroma. Pine and almond. Nice head on the auburn pour. Dry, chewy flavor, lots of hop but a good bit of nut and wee malt flavors. Very drinkable, very tasty.

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2007
Canned. Orange amber coloured. Quite hoppy aroma with toffee notes and a roasty touch. Sweetish fruity and malty flavour with a rather bitter hoppy finish. Slightly weak aftertaste. Medium bodied. Slightly sharp carbonation.

9/15/05. 750ml bottle. 9.2%. Mahogany brown with large tan head. Sweet malty vinous aroma. Sweet up front with bitter ending. Really malty for an IPA and expensive at $16. Have not had it in the can.in the new formulation.

Pours red/brown, with an off-white head. Aroma is hops and malt. Flavor is much the same. A solid brew.

Yum, this is a different beer. I have never had beer from a can that was this good. It looks like a red smells like an IPA and tastes like a malty IPA, I’d drink this again.

Pours brown with lots of foamy white head. Strong hop and citrus aroma. Taste much the same but with some nice malt flavor. Reminds me a a good IPA.

A nice mix of styles coming together in this great can. Kind of hits you in the face without thinking twice about it at first pour. Amazing great things like this can come in a can.
