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.

The spicy aroma of this IPA was very present as my glass was seemingly covered with this big, yet clean, flavored ale. As I have been favoring double ipa-s recently, this dark amber ale was very refreshing and a welcome change in my otherwise uneventful day. The elements of caramel style malts and the sparkling hops made this very easy to drink.

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, .

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!

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...

Tölkki @ Alko. Kaatuu IPA-lasiin mahonginruskeana ja kirkkaana, noin kolmen sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksussa vahvimpana on raikas sitruksisuus ja hieman mentholmaisuuteen vivahtava havuisuus. Mallaspohja tuntuu hieman karamellisena, muttei kuitenkaan älyttömän makeana. Suoraviivainen, mutta toimiva tuoksu. Maussa vanhuus jo tuntuu, makea karamellia nousee enemmän esiin, havuinen ja makean sitruksinen hedelmä nousee esiin lievän mentholisuuden kanssa. Jonkinlaista yrttistä tupakkamaisuuttakin on jonkin verran. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen, hieman makea, katkerot iskevät lopussa melko kovasti. Hieman erilainen DIPA, mekko suoraviivainen, mutta katkerot ovat säilyneet melko hyvin. Makeus ei vaivaa, humalointi on iskevää ja juotavuus pelottavan hyvä.
