RATINGS: 1855   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.84/5   IBU: 60   EST. CALORIES: 261   ABV: 8.7%
Our “Velvet M-80” is a hefty, dry hopped double-red ale 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.

Thanks lb4lb for this. Pours a deep amber orange with thick off-white head. Aroma of is a bit more balanced than most IIPAs, but obvious of citrus and floral hops, strong malt, and grass. Flavor matches, but just doesn’t have that oomph you would be looking for from an IIPA.

Bawelt (717) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 18, 2017
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.

Bärnstensfärgad mot orange öl med ett smutsvitt kvarstannande skum. Doft av malt, karamell, citrus och tallbarr. Detsamma återkommer i smaken.

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!
