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.

hopdog (9996) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2006
12oz can (thanks Josh!). First can with a stick on label that I’ve ever seen! Poured a deep orange color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, orange peels, very lightly spicy and some caramel. Tastes of caramel, oranges and pine. Alcohol content hidden. Nicely balanced. Wow, and out of a can. The only downside with this beer would be bringing a six pack somewhere, drinking them all (and this one was way too easy to drink!) and having the alcohol content creep up on you!

TomDecapolis (4617) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 9, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 Pours a translucent golden amber with an averarge off white creamy head that left some lacing. Aroma of grapefruits, some pine, citrus with a nice sweat caramel malt and hints of alcohol. Flavor was malty sweet caramel followed by a nice piney hop bitterness.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - NOV 8, 2006
Can. Whodathunkit? Pours an orange amber with a thin off-white head. Chewy full body iwth moderate carbonation. Pine and citrus in the nose with a pine, grapefruit, pineapple taste. Big hops without being agressively bitter. If you try only one beer in a can, make it this one.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2006
Bottled. Dark brown coloured with a huge creamy head. Very well balanced. Malty and sweet with notes of hops, pines and dark fruit. Very very nice.

segfault (103) - Centennial, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2006
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.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2006
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.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2006
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.

Zeswaft (1482) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - OCT 23, 2006
$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.
