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.

Sampled at Brewgrass Fest. DIPAs usually aren’t my thing, but this one kicks some serious butt! Huge Amarillo hop aroma that just won’t quit. The flavor still showcases the hops, while garnishing with some maltiness to back it up. Definately a "bigg’en" but not punishingly bitter.

Clear copper, nice beige head. Big hoppy, resiny aroma. Nice fresh hoppy. flowery flavor dominates at first, soon followed by a smooth creamy malt backbone. Very sticky, resiny finish. Sampled at Asheville Brewgrass 2006.

TChrome (1443) - Bedford, Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Beer pours beautiful dark amber color with a big, totally retained head. Aroma is nicely hoppy with some burnt sugar. Flavor is strongly citric with an equally strong smoked malt flavor. Mouthfeel is a bit uneven. Good albeit unique Double IPA.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Wow! An IPA in a can. Golden amber color. Smell of wonderful hops, pine, citrus, caramel and malt. Taste of malt, hops, apricots, orange peal, some pine and flowers. Outstanding bitterness that is sweet and lingers for a while.

Canned - LCRBM2 - A copper coloured beer. The aroma is nicely hoppy with some alcohol sweetness. The taste is nice hops also with a decent malt balance and noticeable alcohol. Maybe a little banana late on. Is this the best beer from a can in the World?

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 19, 2006
draft Taco Mac SS - Aroma is thick chewy hops and carmel malt. Pours brown with a nice lasting creamy head and great lacing. Flavor is more malt than hops (they are still there for sure) and the alcohol shows up. Palate is creamy and smooth. Tasty but a little hot.

Bottle at LCRBM 2, Kulminator, Antwerp, Belgium
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.

harrisoni (14873) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2006
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.

bierkoning (10945) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2006
LCRBM2: Red berries aroma, red berries flavor. Earthy, flowery hops. Almost oily mouthfeel. Lacks balance.
