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.

tapthis (225) - Baytown, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Pours a dull Ruby red color. Small head with good carbonation. Looks like a Irish Red Ale but tastes like an I.P.A.

TheHopster (1032) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2015
(Can). Pours a beautiful amber complexion with thick head and glass lacing. Alcohol comes through in flavor. Otherwise a decent boozy red ale with hop bite. Not my favorite from this excellent Brewer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (3987) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 15, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2016 On tap at the brewery taproom in Brevard in Dec. 2015.. Red-amber body with high clarity and a good head that leaves excellent lacing. About average hoppiness for style in both the aroma and the flavor, yet the medium malts still manage to show, providing nice caramel notes and with fait bread and some sweetness to counter the bitterness, Mild-moderate bitterness. Notably more hoppy and piney than OB’s Pinner IPA. Medium body with lively, medium+ carbonation. Overall: a very well balanced IPA\Irish Red hybrid. Partially hidden alcohol.

sloshgator (674) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Oskar Blues G’Knight Imperial Red has nice malt flavors but not particularly outstanding. Red pour with a frothy head giving way to malt aromas. Taste is a mild malt profile -- drinkable but watery given the deScription. G’Knight is a decent red.

Bif (1955) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 12, 2015
On tap. Served a nice mahogany color with a good head that lingered. Aroma of citrus, bit of malt and spice. Taste of malt sweetness with a nice touch of spice, with just a bit of the hops peeking through. Subtle bitterness and a clean feel. Medium body, full flavor, nicely blended. Nice beer to kick back and relax with.

tekstr1der (343) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Not really my thing. Looks beautiful - nice ruby-copper with lasting, clingy top. Aroma is somewhat musty, spicy earthen with some resin notes. Flavor has a good bitter at the front, amongst tropical fruits, that ends up lingering unpleasantly. Not a very clean finish. Maybe a bit more malt than I’d like. Sometimes dipas do this unbalanced thing I don’t so much enjoy.

Klar amber farve med med kremet lys beige skum. Lukt av malt, karamell, frukt og furunål. Smak av malt, karamell, nøtter og krydder. Lett bitter ettersmak. Vinmonopolet.

16 oz can. Mahogany in color with a tan head. Sweet caramel and citrus flavoring with a minimal amount of bitterness at the end.
