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.

Pours a filtered amber with a sticky off-white head. Aroma is nutty and piney. Tons of caramel malts and big wallop of American hops. Body is big, but not overly sweet. The flavors are straightforeward. Tons of caramel malts, loads of American hops, clean ferment, pretty damn fine. Finish is nicely bitter (nothing lip-peeling). This is one damn fine Imperial Red ale.

OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Poured from a 12oz can a copper color with a beige head. Aroma was piney hops and caramel. Flavor was an excellent mixture of citrus/piney hops and caramel malts.

(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy, orangey golden with a handsome, tall and dense light brown head leaving laces. Fresh aroma of hops and caramel. Surprisingly only a medium body with lots of caramel and then a distinct, hoppy finish. 211006

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2009 Lightly hazed orange copper color with a moderate beige head. Green hops and grapefruit zest in a freshly mowed hay field. A touch too green and grassy for my nose. Hints of cookie dough in the backdrop. Pale malt, caramel and dough in the start. Citric and mild pine in the middle. Huge alcohol bite and burn that continues into the finish and linger. This is one that strikes me as being less than balanced, in that it hops about in the mouth from sweet to bitter, from smooth to biting. Not a easy flowing confluence of flavors. I much prefer the sibling Dale to this. It does seem to mellow as it sets in the glass. Perhaps I judged this one too quickly and this needs to breath prior to sampling, but even then the aroma is still off to me. My first can and I have more cans waiting. I’ll see if I think some adjustment are needed. Rerate adjustments: Not as sharp, but now seems to have soap/perfume character. Just not diggin this one.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 Re-rate:This was so much better the 2nd time around. Back @ the Brick Store Pub to try again on tap. Pours a clear copper color with an off-white head that is mostly lasting. Hoppy aroma has hints of citrus, pine and some spices. Flavor is sweet caramel and citrus that hides the alcohol very well. Delicious and easy drinking!

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2006
12oz can (thanks Josh!). First can with a stick on label that I’ve ever seen! Poured a deep orange color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, orange peels, very lightly spicy and some caramel. Tastes of caramel, oranges and pine. Alcohol content hidden. Nicely balanced. Wow, and out of a can. The only downside with this beer would be bringing a six pack somewhere, drinking them all (and this one was way too easy to drink!) and having the alcohol content creep up on you!

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - NOV 9, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 Pours a translucent golden amber with an averarge off white creamy head that left some lacing. Aroma of grapefruits, some pine, citrus with a nice sweat caramel malt and hints of alcohol. Flavor was malty sweet caramel followed by a nice piney hop bitterness.
