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.

A clear orangey beer with a tan head having a wonderful peachy-resinous arom with hints of malt. A medium body beer having a velvety mouthfeel. Malty notes and peach up front developing into toasty malt and grapefruit, then a nice lingering soft bitterness at the back of the palate. Well balanced, well executed.

Bottle thanks to Bager. Ruby colour with a huge beige head. Strong malty profile, plesant grass hop aroma and taste. Medium to full body with a light sweet round hop finish.

Can opens without a pop or a fizz. The beer pours amber-red with a beige one-finger head. Beautiful aroma of grapefruit and pine, with a tiny bit of sweet caramel. The flavor, while not bad, is a little disappointing. Tastes a little too thin. I’d rather have the Dale’s.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Can purchased at 3 Sons in Wexford, PA. $4.50, damn! This shit better be good. Pours a nice deep amber with a nice off white head, nice lacing. Looks nice in my Hampton Inn plastic cup. Nice aroma of piney hops, caramel, and toffee. Medium soft carbonation. Nice fruity and piney bitterness in the flavor, but there is plenty of british influenced malt counter it. Smooth bitter finish, but there is a small zap of alcohol just before it goes down. Very nice beer, but not worth the price in my opinion.

$13 a 4-pack for the privilege of trying this beer...not a good investment. I love Dale’s Pale Ale and Old Chub so I thought that Gordon must be outstanding. I was wrong. Not a bad beer but not worth the cost of two sixers of Sweetwater IPA.

$4.25 a can! Better be good. I love Dale’s. dark copper color with very little head. Strong grapefruit hop aroma. Flavor is very malty, big caramelly. almost too malty, i really wanted the hops to shine. I think dales might be more skewed to hops. Very smooth carbonation.

nolankowal (923) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Can courtesy of goldtwins, thanks again Larry! Dark amber pour with a creamy yellowed-off white head. Great aroma of pine, caramel malt...some grapefruit and perhaps a bit of lemon zest. The flavor is rich resiny pine hops with some caramel malt to make things a bit more bittersweet...some spiciness... a tinge of pepper behind this gigantic hop punch. Sticky and smooth body...almost a vegetal kind of sweetness in the front which goes to some sweet malt in the middle to the bite at the end that sticks for a long finish that is rather dry when compared to the rest of the beer. Great stuff!

Pour is clear lightish copper with a thin dense tan head...smell is piney and soapy...sticky resiny flavor...

Pillowy tan head. Beautiful caramel coloring. Nice mild citrus malt nose. Flavor is a nice dry grapefruit mellowed by caramel malt. There isn’t a sharp bite to this IPA instead it is subtle kind of English in a way. Expansive flavor.

12 can. Pours a clear dark gold with an offwhite head and good lacing. Caramel, piney hops, and citrus aroma. Very smooth flavor of caramel malt, floral notes, critrus, and piney hops. Probably one of the smoothest and easiest to drink IIPA’s that I’ve had. Best beer in a can.
