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.

Some citrus and a little malt. Pours amber with good head and lacing. Good balance and pretty easy drinking for booze level. Tap at Churchkey.

NordicV (2256) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2017
Bärnstensfärgad mot orange öl med ett smutsvitt kvarstannande skum. Doft av malt, karamell, citrus och tallbarr. Detsamma återkommer i smaken.

QcBeer (183) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 21, 2017
Couleur acajou transparente, avec de fine bulle remontant à la surface. Une mousse pleine et beige qui perdure. Un nez foutrement sucré et malté coté caramel et bien vanillé. Des notes de houblons citronné viennent agrémenté le tout. Dès l’entrée en bouche, c’est merveilleux. Un malt doux caramel, mais extrêmement goûteux vient ouvrir les sens avec un petit up de citron. Un petit sucre brun et le bon malt caramel fait oublié immédiatement ce petit coté citronné pour laisser place à la résine de pin et quelque petit fruit tropicaux en arrière plan. L’amertume est ancré sur des notes cuivrés et de malt caramel. Excellente, Cheers!

Freaky_tiki (1186) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2017
Can from LCBO. This 4-pack winked at me the last time I was at the LCBO. It was a day or two after New Years & I was feeling less than fresh & the thought of a IIPA/strong ale (this beer could & should be classified as either) 4-pack seemed daunting. Along comes a crappy week at the education factory & (more importantly) payday & this beauty is in my fridge. Nice clash of rich malt & generous dry hops. Cut some of the sugars & this would probably punch its way into a 4.0+ rating.

Spab (3683) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2017
355 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear mahogany colour with moderate-sized cream-coloured head. Aroma is rich toffee, bread, citric hops and dried fruit. Flavour is big toffee, gently toasty bread, dark dried fruit and some citrusy and slightly piney hops. Average-full body. Nice.

chris__hartley (442) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2017
It pours amber with copper highlights; the head is off white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: toffee, grapefruit zest, freshly cut grass, mangos, and strawberry jam. The taste is medium bitter. The palate is medium-heavy bodied with medium carbonation, and has a long finish. Overall, it has a very unique profile.

Satyroneto (369) - BRAZIL - JAN 6, 2017
Cor âmbar com tonalidade rubi, turva com algum brilho e um pouco de perlage; espuma marfim de tonalidade amarelada formando bela cascata quando vertida; alta formação e média/alta persistência com lacing regular. Aroma com perfeito equilíbrio da base maltada de caramelo (um pouco açucarado mas agradável) e muito lúpulo cítrico (muita toranja e leves abacaxi e manga), além de leve álcool lembrando madeira. Sabor inicial de caramelo evoluindo para meio alcoólico e cítrico (vide aroma), aumentando de intensidade até o final; retrogosto alcoólico, amargo e um pouco amadeirado. Corpo sedoso com espuma cremosa na boca nos primeiros goles e baixa carbonatação. Um show de equilíbrio e alta drinkabilty, ainda mais para uma cerveja com 8,7% ABV.
