COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

tfredvik (1859) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2017
Hazy amber to copper body with a beige, long-lived head that sticks to the glass. Strong aroma of caramel, red berries, generic fruits with hints of tropical fruits, and pine, upon a spicy and peppery background. Strong flavour of sweet caramel, dark caramel, slightly overripe tropical fruits, red berries and roasted malt. Moderate sweet taste with a pretty heavy bitter and pleasantly long-lasting finish. Medium body, creamy texture, rather soft carbonation. A really nice one indeed!
[35.5 cl can @ Nydalen Bryggeri og Spiseri, Oslo]

Served from can into glass at home. Pours amber brown in color red around the edges, low clarity, with creamy off white head. Sticky, fruity aroma with resinous hops. Intense dank hop flavor with more fruity notes, balanced by caramel maltiness. Medium bitterness and a fairly high sweetness. Full body with low carbonation. Slight alcohol flavor is present. Overall this is a full flavored dankly hoppy red colored beer with the body of an imperial. Easily drinkable and very enjoyable.

2015 BJCP Category: 21B Specialty IPA - Red IPA

AROMA: Strong fruity hop aroma, especially of berry and citrus. Some piney notes as well. Low amber malt sweetness. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Reddish copper/amber. Clear. Large off white soapy foam retains and laces very well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Well-balanced palette of equal parts malty sweetness and dank hop bitterness and flavor. Base has a caramel/toffee-like taste not unlike an amber ale. Bitterness is dank rather than dry. Hops create light fruity notes on the first half (berry and citrus) followed by piney/resiny/smokey notes on the backend. Light clean alcohol flavor is not distracting. Slight residual sweetness and some drying bitterness make for a fine aftertaste. 17/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body and carbonation. Texture is fairly soft, but not chewy or velvety. Finishes smooth. Seems a little lighter than 8.7% ABV. Minor alcohol warmth. Would be ideal on nitro. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Has all the best features of ambers, strong ales and IPAs. A fun and interesting beer to drink. 9/10

TOTAL SCORE: 43/50

ça sent le houblon et la résine, la couleur est d’un rouge rubis légèrement foncé, ça à le gout de l’odeur avec une légère note amère ça change des red ipa que j’ai pu goutté le palais est juste magique, c’est léger en bouche malgré le taux d’alcool assez élevé, une légère carbonation avec une finale amère. au top cette imperial red ipa!

Pours a red head with strong red pepper aromas. Amber to ruby colored body. In mouth a big load of hops, fruit and medium malts. Round and a bit spicy for an IIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Très bien foutue ! Nez : un petit côté malté, un fond éthylique mais qui soutiennent des houblons assez présents et puissants. Ils le sont surtout en bouche : orange très amère, du résineux, beaucoup de résineux. Finale très amère et sèche mais également assez éthylique. Bien équilibrée.
