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.

Can at The Rover in Göteborg. This was one of the highlights of the evening for me on our small Gothenburg pub-crawl in July 2007, and it kind of feels wrong to put a beer like this in a can ;) It’s warm golden with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is beautiful and alluring with hoppy notes of pine, citrus and fruit. The mouthfeel is smooth and oily. The flavour has an impressive caramel-base, loads of citrus, pine, slightly sweet citrus fruits and a lot of other hoppy notes and a nice bitterness - yummi, I fell in love with this one... 2379

Pours a reddish orange out of the can with a small white head. I was looking forward to this one. There is something fascinating about beer from a can that is good. Anyways, it is a strong brew, very hoppy, nose of floral hops and pine. Taste was much the same, with just enough malt to balance it out. Very nice beer.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2008 really nice amber color, thick creamy head, wicked lacing on my glass....looks like glue! Wow, the hops aroma is really nice, and floral. The flavour is huge on the hops, and the malt balances it out really nicely. Very well balanced beer. Wicked stuff, and the 8.7% is nowhere to be found, this is quality beer! I would say this is a DIPA.

ekstedt (6314) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2007
Can (50 cl) at the Rover, Göteborg, Sweden. Clear amber with a medium creamy off-white head. Intense fruity malt aroma, hops add more fruitiness, pine needles and floral notes. Medium bodoed and very smooth. Perfect balance with a rich malt sweetness and an intense bitterness. A truly great beer.

Furseth (2056) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2007
Can, and this was my most expencive beer in a can Ive have paid for, just have to say it! Dark red colur, nice creamy head. aroma of lots of hops!!,flowers citric,and a malty aroma in the end. Whow what a bomb of hops here was! Flavor is fruity,hopy,and almost the same as in the aroma,smouth mouth feeling,medium to great body,long finish. This was the best beer in a can of 0,35 Ive had try, so it was ok, for the cost of this. Great beer,thake a bow folks!

True red ale. This is the hoppiest red ale I have ever tasted. It is very sticky and like Dales the head is very foamy and is of a darker orange and brown, that kind of creeps out of the top of the can. This has a great hop aroma and a sweet finish.

Hoppy smells just smacks you in the face. What a great smell. It has a more mature smell than the Dales Pale Ale. The smell is sweet and hoppy. The beer has a dark amber color with a nice creamy smell. This beer was definitely worth the price of $12 per 4-pack. This beer has the qualities of both an I.P.A. and a Strong Ale. The beer is nice and hoppy, but also has the ability of giving me a sweet caramel/fruit taste. This beer is great, and the high IBU content does not take over the flavor of the beer. What a fine and delicious beer. I am very much impressed. Any company that can combine an I.P.A. flavor and a Strong Ale, has my vote. Go Oskar Blues!

12 ounce can from Beers of the World in Rochester, NY (June 2007), consumed July 1 2007. Can is popped without a whimper, but the beer cascades into my Allagash glass, a bit below cellar temperature, into a perfectly beautiful translucent bronze liquid topped by a tremendously lasting big-bubbled off-white head that leaves fine spidery lacing …..very, very fresh resinous hop nose, lots of grapefruit and some interesting whiffs of gingerbread dosed with caramel, close to perfect if you like very forward, acidic PNW hop bouquets ……the mouthfeel, too syrupy-slick for me, and the carbonation level so low, really belying the appearance ….flavor is good, but doesn’t live up to the fine aroma, old dry candy sweetness like slightly stale caramel creams mixing with dessicated oranges and mangos, alcohol rather too forward at the fairly bitter finish ….a mixed bag altogether, as I’ve found all of the Oskar stuff thus far.
