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. Strong pine and grapefruit hops aroma. Dark amber with large head. Nice sweet caramel malt flavor with a suprisingly mild grapefruit/orange hops finish. Very nicely blended with bitterness not overwhelming the overall flavor. Amazing how Oskar Blues can get such great beer in a can.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2007 A deep red beer with an orange head. The aroma is very hoppy combined with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, and light notes of hops, and even wood in the end, which is dry.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2007 Sweet, malty, hoppy aroma and a twinge of alcohol. Taste is of floral and citrus hops (slightly grapefruit and rindy) with a slight bitterness. Good malt balance, maybe a bit too sweet and cloying rather than sticky. Still, well made.

Ughsmash (7276) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Canned. Poured a deep translucent copper with a short-lived cap of white head. Nose picked up lots of juicy fruits that I’m a sucker for (pear, grapefruit, sliced melon) and some rummy caramel. Flavor found tangy and juicy fruit bitterness that coated the mouth well... pears and grapefruit at the finish.. sticky. This had some sharper alcohol and bitter points around the tongue and was thick and almost syrupy on the back-end. Good stuff overall.

355mL can. I really feel compelled to drink at least some of this directly out of the can. Ill pour 3/4 into my snifer and sip on the can a bit first. It says this beer is bottle-conditioned and sold in corked 750’s, i wonder if its now can-conditioned now that its sold in a different container. Is can conditioning possible? Pours a deep copper with a small off-white head. Aroma is lotsa fresh, earthy and resinous, grapefruit laced dry hops. Medium bodied with good hop flavor and a nice balance of sweet malts. Flavors (both hop and malt) are not as pronounced as some double ipa’s, but I like that and it really causes the beer to stand out from the rest (in additon to it being served in a green, white, and silver can!) Very quaffable for 9.2%. Worth the hype.

This is one of the most balanced DIPA’s I have had. It has the kick in the ass hops, but is balanced with a with a thick palate and a malty backbone. Sexy dark mohogany body too. Yummy! Where CAN I find more - pun intended..

Thanks to BeerandBlues2 for this one. Pours a hazy reddish orange with little to no head. The aroma is absolutely wonderful--grapefruit and floral hints combine for a nice aromatic experience. Thick and sticky mouthfeel (big and red too...). The taste reveals a huge amount of malt with lots of hops balancing the opposite side of the spectrum. The hops are harsh and cut through the caramel malt flavors to create a very refreshing beer.

Can pours deep amber under a creamy, cream-colored head. Nice citric PNWs in the nose with a honey essence. The 9.2% is well-hidden behind hops. Thick bodied, nice and sticky (as advertised). Intensifies in flavor from what I first assumed to be an APA, to an IPA, and beyond as it warms. An excellent surprise.
