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

pours clear bright medium dark golden orange with a creamy reviving light orange cap, nice lacing. tons of fruity maltiness - wild berries, strawberries, woodsy coconut, citrus and ginger, delicate pine, clean yeast, grapefruit peel and pepper. average to light carbonation, medium body - oily and sticky; almost balanced fruitypiney-citrusy finish. this ale represents the idea of this (sully) style. much enjoyed! big, heady and hefty without being bold and aggressive.

Keg at BD Shepherd’s Bush tap takeover, London. It pours a dark reddish copper color with a medium tan head. Aroma is medium sweet and quite leafy and hoppy, with notes of toffee, caramel malts, ripe mango, dried fruits, dried leaves, earth, mixed nuts. Taste is sweet with a bitter hoppy finish. Lightly grainy, toffee, candy sugar, ripe apricots, dried berries and leaves, wet soil. Medium to full bodied with creamy texture and lively carbonation. Overall, nice and bold

I poured this beer from a growler and admired its beauty for a moment. Halfway through my pint I thought this is a beer worth reviewing, so I gulped it down so I could assess the beer from square one. Now I just want to enjoy this Imperial buzz. Laces the side of a glass like you're drawing the shades at night, ready for bed. Heavy aroma, boozy, more going on than I care to talk about right now. G'Knight.

dark red 1 finger off-white head. Nose is pretty intense. very pine forward, almost medicine like so intense. taste is also pretty intense. lots of pine, mango, fruit, apple. but it’s all masked by an intense bitterness.
