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.

Pours a dakr nut brown with a thick head that thins out but never fades. The nose is of bitter hops and amber malt. The flavor is very malty with lots of grain, yet there was still a nice bitterness that made the brew enjoyable. There was some woody after taste flavor but nothing really intence. The booze was not well hidden in this but still refreshing to the palate.

(draught - Birreria Paradiso in Georgetown) hazy dark orange with an off white head. Mild aroma of hops and sweetish malt. Flavor is very balanced floral hops and strong malt backbone.

puboflyons (3301) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 17, 2008
From a 12 fl. oz. US) can with a lot code of 6 09 13A1 B A.. Pours an amber-brown with a puffy beige head that stays on top of the glass for much of the session. Overpowering aroma of hops and subtle sweetness combined. Taste is extremely hoppy. Whew, this stuff packs a punch too and you don’t notice the alcohol until your head is spinning. Very good.

Amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is malty, with caramel, maple, and a light alcohol sweetness. Taste is a nice hoppiness followed by caramel, and crystal malt and a very light alcohol warming.

Can from Vintage Cellar. Aromas of pine and floral hop. Copper/amber color with a decent off-white head. Very smooth, near creamy, carbonation. Seems about medium in body. Lightly roasted caramel malts nicely balanced by lots of hop. Not harsh, just good. Leaves a bit of tingle behind. The finish balance is fairly dry, and the hop keeps on. Nicely bitter.

Pours dark golden read with a frothy head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and sweet malts. Big aroma. Big malt flavor. Very smooth. Finishes bitter. Delicious beer. I can’t believe this comes in a can.

On draft at Oskar Blues brewpub. A tasty brew, albeit a little all over the place. A fair earthy dose put into the hop profile, but the sweet malty undertones seem to take the lead here. Some sweet fruity notes behind it. I suppose I was expected more of a hop forward double ipa type brew after seeing the tap handle - now after reading the description, maybe this was what they were going for all along. Nonetheless, while I enjoyed it, it wasn’t ’wow’- ing me over...

Can (of course). Pours a nice ruby/copper color with a little bit if lacing in the medium size head. Sweet fruity aroma, I knew I was going to like it as soon as I smelled it. Sweet fruity & malt flavor. With a great balance of hop bitterness. One of my new favorites.

kyzr (1436) - Montana, USA - MAR 11, 2008
Can thanks to CaptainCougar. Pours a nice amber color with decent sized off-white head. Very sweet and hoppy aroma. Flavor was a little hoppy, but the sweet malt really took control. A lot of caramelized sugar, almost like candied oranges. Great texture and mouthfeel. Really didn’t notice the high alcohol at all, never got the warm feeling.
