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

GIJOE (858) - 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 (1538) - 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 (849) - 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 (2686) - 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

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
