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.

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.

oh6gdx (24920) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2007
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 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.

NorCal tasting July 07 - A double IPA in a can? Whoa. Thanks to beerguy101 (I think) for bring this one. First whiff of the beer and there was some clear floral and citrus notes coming from the glass, with a very subtle piney profile luring around underneath. Appearance is burnt orange/copper in color, nice off-white one-finger head. It felt a little too harsh on in my mouth for my liking. A generous helping of juicy citrus hop character along with some malty goodness makes this one interesting DIPA from a can. I would have probably rated it higher had the hops been more prominent (a DIPA should be all about the hops IMO). Since I’ve never had a DIPA from a can, this is clearly the best one I’ve had.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Almost clear orange-copper body topped by a small beige head. Hops flavour has a lot of pine-tree and some floral notes. Sparse soft carbonation. Lots of hops essence. Could have been a bit crisper. I never met Gordon Knight, the man honoured by this beer. But judging by the beer I’d say he was a sweet man. He was also very bitter but his bitterness would quickly go away. He had an alcohol breath. He was a down-to-earth person (not very fruity). He also had a heavy body and he should have showered more often cause he had an oily, very very oily body.
