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.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2008
Pours hazy amber brown with a small fluffy white head. Strong aroma of piney/herbacious/resinous hops. some tropical fruit undertones, and a bit of almost burnt caramel. Herbacious hops hit hard right upfront with resinous piney notes and a bit of mint followed by strong wooded earth flavors and slight fruity undertones. Palate is medium, a bit lighter than expected, but although a bit watery feeling, the finish is still there.

BuckeyeSammy (617) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2008
Dark apricot amber, dark beige head. Serious lacing. Citrus hoped nose. Crisp carbonation, heavily hoped with a floral hopy back end. Slightly bitter. Malty undertones. Best can of beer i have found, but pricey at 4.25.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2008
Dark amber color with a smalish head. Rich aroma with a very nice piney citrus hop character. Flavor is on the high end of moderately bitter, some pronounced citrus tones and a very nice chewy finish. A bit too bitter for my taste, but quite good.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2008 Clear brown-red pour with a thick white head. Very hoppy pine-citrus aroma with some sweetness to it. Slightly sweet flavor with some hops, not so much as to overpower the flavor. Really nice balance. Dry with a little bit of sweetness and very smooth and easy to drink. Some malt and yeast on the finish. Real good and easy to drink, although a little expensive!

Big thanks to Beerlando for the can!!
Pours a rich amber color with a smallish head. Smell is caramel, sweet oranges, and bitter pine. Taste is sweet and orangey caramel along with the same piney hops present in the nose. Slightly thick and a bit syrupy going down but not cloying in flavor. Very drinkable, in fact, with a sharp, short lived piney hop flavor balanced well by the sweet orange and caramelly malt. The carbonation is on the soft side making it rich and smooth. This stuff is great!

jrmac (335) - South Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2008
Cloudy red pour. Hoppy beyond belief on the nose. Taste like a hopped up caramel candy. Surprisingly not as hoppy on the palate as one would expect from the nose.

Thanks to By The Bottle crew for this gem---From a can--Poured a deep ruby-copper body. Piny, sticky, earthy nose. Hops over hops. Gritty, full, sticky mouth feel. Awesome!!

HailSquishface (16) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2008
Pours a hazy amber from the can into my glass. A small mini head forms and disappears with little patches of bubbles forming in the middle. Smells sweet, full of pine and grapefruit. Great nose, I wish it came as an air freshener scent. Starts off with a caramel and brown sugar sweetness which is quickly overtaken by hops, grapefruit, pine, and lemony goodness. The sides of my tongue tingle a little and my mouth is left coated with bitterness.

nimbleprop (8280) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 28, 2008
On tap at Pizza Paradiso in DC. Poured a transparent, deep copper brown with a thin white head that faded midway down the glass. Aroma was very hoppy, citrus and flowers with strong sugary malt. Flavor was the same, brown sugar and caramel maltiness with lemony, citrus American hops in tow. Slightly bitter, slightly sugary finish. Very drinkable.
