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.

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.

Can.This is a hugely citrusy hoppy beer. There is a underlying note of fruity malts but man-oh-man this is hoppy. Bitter and deliscious on the tongue.

Can (also on tap at the brickstore pub in Decatur GA.). Freakin awesome DIPA- and a great example of how a canned beer can be every bit as good or better than a bottled beer. Pours a deep ruby amber- clear soft carbonation, and a fluffy off white head and kickass lace. Aroma is citrusy american hops, sweet pungent, sticky, piney, and grapefruit- as it warms a slight hint of alcohol becomes present. Sticky sweet caramel malts, but dominated by nice piney hops with citrus and mango-like hops. A bit of an alcohol kick, and very bitter overall. Fantastic DIPA.

Deep copper appearance with huge foamy head. A very sweet aroma with notes of honey and nut. The aroma is relaxing. The taste is nutty, bitter, with a touch of cloves. Deep penetrating Warmth. Packs a big punch, for something out of a little can, once fully consumed.

What a beautiful sight it was to see this wonderfully dark amber beer flow from a can. One advantage of the can is the aroma that is retained inside the can. It smells great upon the initial "crack" and the taste is a wonderfully hoppy, delicious beer that I could drink day in, day out. A great double IPA that I plan on having again and again.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2007 HAD THIS ON MY 30TH BIRTHDAY!!! I never thought that in my entire existence I would find a dark amber beer in a can. What a surprise. Very nice dry hopped red. Strong hop aroma. Medium to Heavy body. Very nice bitterness. not very strong. Bitterness is very present but not long. Overall great!
