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.

G'knight - a beer I've had many times. Perfect because it's in a can and therefore is portable pretty much anywhere I want to go. Poured into a porter glass. A - looks amazing. Red/amber color with 2 fingers off white head that dissipates to 1 finger of lumpy head. Lacing the glass already without even taking a sip. Each swig leaves a perfect ring of lacing on the glass. S - Citrusy/floral hops balanced by caramel/bready malts. Little bit of brown sugar in there too. T - Sweet. A lot of caramel malt w/ nice hop fruitiness. A lot of orange/lemon/lime flavors along w/ strawberry in there. The "red" part of the ipa is giving a smoother and sweeter taste with this one, which I like. M - Light-medium. Carbonation is light-medium too. Alcohol completely hidden. Leaves a light bitter/fruity flavor from the hops in your mouth. O - Great beer. I love this beer and I think it's nearly as good as Ten FIdy. The fact that Oskar Blues cans their beers makes them portable almost anywhere, which is another important aspect. Within it's genre it's probably the best red IPA I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a coupla two tree tall boy cans into the pint glass, nice foam and good red look. Just enough hops to be smooth, and doesn’t taste as strong as it is, but it is. Glad you named it after a brother.

This is a superb Imperial Red IPA from CO that is right up there with the best strong IPAs in the front range. Stronger than Dale’s Pale Ale and up there with (Titan and Myrcenery, double IPAs). Not as much Hop nose as Myrcenery, but no big deal. This kills Odell’s Double IPA but is a close second to Odell’s Myrcenery Double IPA, Two Strong IPAs I’ve tasted recently from the mile high corridor. Drink one and enjoy!

Beautiful ruby-orange color and a huge head. Smell is toffee with a crisp hops background; overall very subtle. Taste has a strong caramel character with some spicy hop flavor and a ridiculously smooth finish.

EtTuCthulhu (1104) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - NOV 7, 2014
The beer pours a hazy reddish orange color with a large off-white head, and the aroma blends loads of caramel and biscuity malts with even more citrus hops. The taste is mildly bitter and mildly sweet, and the aftertaste continues to blend the malty sweetness with the grapefruity hop flavors. The palate has slightly sticky texture, soft carbonation that intensifies in the mouth, and a medium body.

Great looking and great smelling beer that, while still packing a punch, does not quite deliver as promised in the mouth. Nicely piney with a mildly fruity sweetness from start to finish.

This shit is bananas. Seriously tons of banana and tropical fruit as soon as you pop the top. Followed by sweet malt and a bit of citrus. Taste is just insane. Tons of tropical fruit, more banana and grapefruit. Balanced off by a nice malt but not too much. Super good beer.

Au nez, un houblon résineux nous attaque les narines accompagné d'un caramel grillé. En bouche, on goûte le côté le côté gazonné du houblon avec un fort goût de caramel, mais très bien balancé. L'alcool est présente en fin de bouche mêlé avec un goût de grain caramélisé amer. Je suis surpris de l'équilibre de ce produit. Bien apprécié. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"also from a can...pours like a bright, fresh ipa. highly aromatic hops, slightly thicker and sweeter mouthfeel and flavor. Oskar states it’s a cross between an imperial ipa, strong ale, and amber, and i can see that, although i’d definitely class it as an imperial ipa. very hoppy, and very good with a maltier backbone than expected. Man...that’s good! gotta downgrade just a tad as i hadn’t had a fresh one in a while, and when i finally did, it was a bit of a letdown."
