RATINGS: 1852   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.84/5   IBU: 60   EST. CALORIES: 261   ABV: 8.7%
Our ’Velvet M-80’ is a hefty, dry hopped double-red ipa 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.

Near perfection for the style! Perfect body and great sniff. Balanced flavors and full appearance that is very inviting. If anything it taste young and fresh, not matured but that’s how I like my brew! Try it!!!

Can from Alko. Reddish brown with medium head. Nutty, fruity, warming alcohol bite. Full bitterness.

kaserov (799) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 12, 2017
Color ámbar oscuro, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio de tres dedos de grosor (cremosa y de muy buena retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura cremosa. Aroma a malta tostada, malta caramelizada, toffee, reminiscencias florales, herbales y licorosas, pino. Huele mejor de la lata que del vaso, aunque en la lata la resina y el pino se aprecian por encima de todo lo demás. En boca entra dulce, con mucha malta caramelizada, toffee, resina de pino, cítricos, reminiscencias de fruto seco, licor a mitad de trago. Final resinoso de amargor leve y no muy duradero. Pino y resina en postgusto. Disfrutable y algo compleja, pero no tan intensa como esperaba.

From a 355ml can on 9/8/2017. Pours a reddy amber with a medium head. The nose features, caramel, toast ans some fruity notes. Tatse wise, it features a nice malt and sweet fruit balance. More caramel and toast, followed by lots of apricot and peach. The hops give it a firm bitterness, which features a decent amount of pine and resin. The palate is thick and the carbonation moderate. Super easy drinking for something approaching 9%. Lovely.

humpah (281) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 16, 2017
0,355l can from Alko. Pours red color with small head. Flavor of pine, malts, sweet caramel, some fruitness. Mostly sweet piny taste, medium body, quite bitter and some alcohol, .

anstei (2358) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 14, 2017
Can from Alko in Vaasa. Pours lightly cloudy amber. Aroma is strong pine, resin, forest floor, mango, passion fruit. Body is heavy, sweet and strong. Decent bitterness, and very piney still. Comparably soft carbonation. Caramel, resin, bark. Lingering pine needle palate, sweet. Good!

bedainedebiere (539) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2017
Can. Interesting but to me quite oversweetened power-hop beer. Resinous piney hops leave a not-that-long-lasting aftertaste. At least a little overrated...

BeerBaboon (2109) - FINLAND - JUL 9, 2017
Pours hazy amber with off-white head. Aroma is caramel, exotic fruity and pine. Flavour is medium to heavy sweet and heavy bitter. Accompanied by pine and fruity notes. Long bitter finish. Full bodied and medium carbonated.

eduardovl (1454) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 2, 2017
330ml can served in an ordinary glass. Pours a dark amber color forming a medium, creamy and beige head with good retention and some lingering lacings formed and left in the glass. Strong caramel malts in the nose. Grapefruit, pine, mango and resin in the nose. Sweet upfront taste. Strong notes of caramel malts, pine, mango, grapefruit, resin. Strong bitterness. Good bittersweet balance. Heavy body. Medium carbonation. Pine, grass, caramel and grapefruit in the afteraste. Great American imperial IPA.
