COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

12 ounce can in Duvel glass. Clear red with lasting flat head and lace. Fresh hop aroma with slight alcohol evap. Caramel tobacco orange flavors with medium dry finishing bitterness. Medium-full body and medium carbo. Pretty good but not really that exciting. I guess I’m not into red ales that much. Alcohol nose is somewhat off-putting for a beer that’s only 8%.

Can. Pours cloudy amber with a medium off white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel and spice. Taste is more malt than hop, caramel seems to dominate, some candy sweetness. Medium body, oily texture. Not much bitterness in the finish. Decent strong ale.

Can courtesy of jayg. Pours a cloudy amber color with a thick offwhite head. Very interesting aroma of peppermint, spices and fruity hops. Very good flavor of dark malt, burnt caramel, hops and peppermint with a bitter finish. The body is medium and oily, the carbonation is moderate. I like this beer a lot, it makes me think of Nøgne Ø Batch 100.

Rusty (1546) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Pours with a great big thick sticky head that loves to linger. Smells of hops and citrus. Big hop and citrus taste with a oily texture. Best canned beer i’ve ever had.

Oskar Blues Gordon is a great hoppy American beer. I can’t believe that this beer came from a can

yes indeed a hybrid and grapefruit hop brew that is aggressive a bit harsh and befitting of an american strong ale. the beer settles somewhat and a malty and expected broomstraw dimension arrives with a smoothing and settling carbonation. a ballsey brew that has it’s place in the bitter hearts of us all!

georgehog (18) - Delaware, USA - JAN 16, 2008
On draft at OB brewpub. Dark, amber orange hue with slightly off white head. Huge piney, hop aroma with an alcoholic tint to it. Not as smooth as Dales for me. Piney hops, a little on the thin side with an alcoholic pang to it. Finish is a little astringent, but this is defintely worth trying. Could be more balanced.

valpoaj (741) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 14, 2008
From can...pours murky mahogany color with little off-white head. Aroma is primarily piney hops with some hints of citrus fruit in there as well. Flavor is dominated by the piney hops...there’s some malt, but the hops dominate this one. Bitter aftertaste with some citrus notes. Highly carbonated and somewhat rough on the palate, but nothing too offensive. Full-bodied and oily on the palate. Good offering, but wow was the price high on this puppy...can’t see myself drinking this too much when you equivocate this to a $24 sixer! However, cheers to one!

[996-20071223] 355mL (w/ GregClow, jerc). Aroma has a big kick of citrus hops and continues with malt and pine resin notes. Clear, amber orange body with quick foamy off-white bubbles. Hoppy and malty flavour has a bit of old pine resin and a nice citrus background. Rough medium body. Big, red and sticky.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2008 Pours a deep amber orange with small carbonation and a large frothy tan head. Aroma is initially grapefruit and then some caramel and spice. Biting grapefruit flavor that somewhat overpowers the caramel malt underneath. Oily texture, long bitter finish. Great beer for a hop head like myself.
