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.

zmanzorro (128) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Poured from tall boy can into glass mug. Pours a clear anmber color with a very thick off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is a huge dose of hops accompanied by sweet malts. Taste is a little disappointing compared to the aroma. Slightly hoppy upfront and followed by a sweet thickness. Tastes of alcohol melded in as well. Lingering bite on the tongue with average carbonation. Still a good beer but the taste is let down by what the aroma provides. Could use a good dose of hops upfront. Prefer Peticolas Velvet Hammer hands down over this. Taste does improve as it warms up a little bit. Beer Rating #100!

wxman (1535) - 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.

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 (843) - 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 (2678) - 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.

Big, thick white head with dark golden colour. Smells of lovely fresh hops - big grassy aroma. Smooth palate with some fruitiness & a bitter but balanced end. A beautiful brew! Rated by BrewTom

acearl (414) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2015
Poured from can, copper red hue with thick creamy tan head, decent lacing, smells of caramel malt and leather yeast with some fruit hops, medium body, smooth and silky with light bitter aftertaste, alcohol well hidden, a little too syrupy and brown sugar sweet, some oak, tropical juicy fruit adds adds another dimension

Eructoblaster (3292) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Can - 473ml. Beautiful copper body with a thin, lasting, off-white frothy head. Robust hoppy aroma with malty, citrusy, cinnamon, and caramel hints. Alcohol is not too agressive. Its sharp, strong hoppy taste carries malty, oaky, brown sugar, and fruity notes. Ends with a long, strong, bittersweet finish. Well done.
