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.

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."

Nice, balanced aroma with sweet bread/malt/caramel, pine, citrus, and citrus. Flavor is a little milder than I expected, slightly sweet and nutty. Strong, fruity, bitter finish. More of an IPA than anything else, but different from most of the double IPAs out there, and in a good way.

Can from Total Wine, Summerlin. Almost clear orange pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is fruity, sweaty, slightly floral, caramel and grapefruit. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity and with a thick body. Heavy brew.

Tasted this brew at the Tasty Weasel, which is Oskar Blues Brewery tasting room, located in Longmont, CO. Great hop nose and edge upon tasting that was quenched by the malts, resulting in an unexpectedly balanced finish. This is great beer. A growler of the brew came home with us.

Tap @ Oskar Blues. A nice warm up on a cold day. Never had this brew of theirs before so I tried it out on a stop through town on vacation. Not too sweet, nice moderate hop character. Going down easy.
