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.

Clear, brown body. Off-white, fizzy head. Aroma of liquor, pears, ... Moderately bitter, lightly sweet initial flavour. Moderately bitter finish. A little bit complex, but actually just bitterness.

LCRBM2. Deep copper with beige head. Lovely strong hop/toffee combination. Possibly the best beer that I have ever had in a can. Intense hop and I didn’t think that the high alcohol got in the way.

LCRBM2: Red berries aroma, red berries flavor. Earthy, flowery hops. Almost oily mouthfeel. Lacks balance.

Bart (2940) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2006
Dark amber coloured with a very small off white head, and little carbonation. Hoppy fruity aroma, little roasted. Light sweet, alcoholic taste. The finish is stronger, bitter sweet, little roasted. OK one.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Can. Pours a deep orangey gold with not much of a head. Nose is riddled with hops. Thought this was a fruity, hopbomb that I wished was more malty. Hops buzzing in your mouth won’t let you forget that this is a 2IPA Starts slightly bitter and that flavor builds as the beer finishes. Although this wasn’t bad, it was somewhat disappointing and definately not worth the $3.99 per can price.

hotstuff (4101) - Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Can. Ivory head with minimal lacing, floaties, minimal carbonation, and a red brown hue. Hoppy nose. Flavor was some caramel, hoppy and thin. Hops were well balanced. Tingly, thin mouthfeel. Liight body.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2006
Draught@The Sunset Grill, Boston. Lovely hoppy aroma, quite flowery. Fruity hop characters in the flavour: lychee, grapefruit. Some light;y caramely malt notes, but its more a bout the hops, piney, sappy.

I love that they put it into a can. And it’s darker than the Midnight Sun Artic Devil that we had before--that’s classic. Rich brown/red with a vivid head. Gentle bitter effect with a rich maltiness and sweetness. Hoppy in appropriate balance.

On tap at the HDG. Aroma very citric and crisp. Arrived to me a nice amber with a nice foamy head. The flavor was just hoppy good, citric and piney just loads of em. A light sweet malt is also present. Palate really makes you pucker and like it. Overall, OB just gives it to you straight. I love it.
