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.

Tjusigt rödbrun och en aning grumlig. Fyllig och intensiv smak. Viss fruktighet och beska. Mycket drickbar.

Hockert (75) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2014
From can at home. Pours dark caramel reddish with a offwhite head. Smells of caramel, citrus and hay. Tastes very caramel malty, medium to high bitterness. Tastes some kind of sweet, but not too much. Well balanced!

Draft. Little head with low carbonation. Smooth taste, hides alcohol dangerously well, you’d think is beer was 5% or so. Malty with caramel and dark fruit notes. Really excellent.

Big blootering red number. Serious malt contender, with the thankful backup of that tropical funk punch to the nose. Does this smell of cauliflower a little? I’m getting a real vegetal front end here. Yep cauliflower cheese. Palate is rich and creamy, with a great spice note aided by fine carbonation. Taste is straight up tropical cheese fruit. Mineral maltiness to follow. Lovely balanced tail, not too dry or bitter at all despite the massive hop profile. This one is in the top 2-3 imperial IPAs I’ve had, of any colour.

Transfer from BA review from 6-20-12 - Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served an amber red color with a thin off white head. The head faded fast to leave a moderate amount of lacing. Smell – The smell was a wonderful balance of sweet tropical fruit (mango, pineapple and a lighter peach) and malt mixed with some citrus and floral hop aromas. Overall very balanced. Taste – The taste as was the nose was- very balanced. It started out on the sweeter side with a good deal of tropical fruit and some bready features. These are quickly meet with some hop flavors of citrus nature. As the taste moves on and the sweetness fades a bit, one is left with a hoppy citrus, pine and grassy hop flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body is quite creamy with the carbonation level on the lover side. Both really help to accentuate the sweeter and hoppy flavors of the beer and suit it quite well. Overall – A delicious and very enjoyable red IPA. It has flavor, aroma and feel in a very balanced manner. A wonderful brew and definitely one to try.
