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.

Unde (1215) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2018 Ruby red clear beer with nice a little beige head on top, looks brilliant. Aroma lot of caramel malts, pines and toffee, grassy and grapefruit hops. Citrus notes behind all the caramel. Taste has sweet caramel malts, syrup feel to it, under the sweetness there is grape and citrus notes but ending is more bitter with pines and grass notes. Caramel and pines all the way. Fullish body and medium carbonation. Pretty damn good.

zenkis (875) - Ogre, LATVIA - FEB 19, 2018
Just what you expect from imperial red - medium body, plenty of caramel, candy notes in flavor and it all sits so well on proper bitterness and hops flavor infusion. Enjoyed every sip.

Can. Bright tropical fruit aroma with notes of grapefruit hop citrus, some pine resin and caramel malt. Pours dark reddish-amber colored with a large tan head that has excellent retention and lacing. Starts with caramel malt and tropical fruit sweetness. Finishes smooth and dry with grapefruit hop citrus and a little bit of pine resiny hop bitterness. Really nice red ipa.

17Beer (466) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 9, 2018
12 oz can. Scents of citrus and pine. Pours a cloudy apricot with a huge rocky long lasting head. Sweet dried fruit tastes balanced with a slight sour that carries through the finish. Very unique and it works.

ciocanelu (3194) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 28, 2018
Slightly hazy amber color with beige head. Aroma has toasted malt, light caramel and resiny hops. Taste is also resiny, piney with intense woody sap notes but not too bitter, the malt keeps everything in balance. Medium body and carbonation. ABV is hidden quite well, a nice resiny amber ale.

MarcoDL (5529) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2018
Can. Amber pour. Aroma of malt, pine, caramel, grapefruit and orange. Taste of herbal pine, malt, caramel, grapefruit and a bitter malty finish. Good american malty ale with a punch.

4.3
ttoadee (1691) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2018
Cloudy amber, nice khaki head. Nose is caramelsoruce twigs and a bowl of fresh cut mango. Bitter. Middle us a SOLID malt back bone, deep spruce resin, carmelized malt, and florishes of tropical fruit. Finish has a whiff of the ABV in the roof of the mouth, but mostly it is just hoppy , malty bliss.

Can at home, while watching Mad Max Fury Road Crome Edition on 2nd christmas day. Hazy dark amber with offwhite head. Sweet malts, caramel, orange peel, tea, biscuits, pine resin, but very juicy. Big sweet and moderate bitter. Heavy malty body and soft carbonation, very juicy barleywine / imperial ipa -ish. Good fuel.
