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.

Rockwells on tap. First time on nitro. Still getting into the ratings concept but this is an excellent beer. Nice taste, nice color, beautiful head and lacing. Tastes deceptively of a lower ABV with hops without damaging the palate.

stevoj (3022) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 6, 2015
On tap at Boise Brewing. Pours out a nice ruby brown, soft beige head, lots of lacing. Caramelly, nutty, peaty, exceptionally smooth. Elevated IPA plays into whole scenario, accenting aroma, flavor and finish. Nicely done.

Pretty good imperial. Nice aroma but lingers a bit long but to be expected. Worth buying.

GIJOE (974) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Pours a dark red-brown with a huge pillowy, white head. Wild and wooly lacing. Nose is bready at first and then a bouquet of hoppy bliss. Notes of grapefruit pith. Taste is bitter and refreshing. Astringent finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Excellent! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wxman (1589) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2015
On tap at Global Brew. Pours a dark copper with a decent off white head. Mild hop flower aroma. Taste is caramel malt, and a pleasant hoppy, grassiness from the dry hopping.

Had this beer a couple of different ways. American hoppy red that is strong and delicious. On Nitro it’s dangerous, you can crush it.

bartzluke (400) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 15, 2015
4 oz chilled pour into a cylindrical tasting glass from tap at the brewery’s taphouse. Fresh as can be! Absolutely beautiful beer. Amber/ruby, clear, with a moderate and attractive head. Very malty and very hoppy. A hop-forward, well-developed, full-bodied, and aggressive beer.

kbudd19 (911) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 11, 2015
Can. Appearance is dark red with lots of head. Aroma is citrus, pine, and brown sugar. Taste is citrus, pine, mixed in with a sweet malty backbone. Pretty solid, nice balance of citrus, pine, and malty sweetness without being too syrupy or bold, alcohol is very well hidden...dangerous.

asheft (2760) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2015
On tap at at Fox pub, Peoria. Fresh tangerines in the nose with a little medicine (Pacific gem?) and faint grapefruit and pine accents. Hazy red-brown under an eternal tawny, lacy cover. Flavour is potent orange and strawberry hops, but then ethanol, blending into creamsickle. Hops bitterness is thankfully subdued, but present. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth and slightly warming.
