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.

Amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is malty, with caramel, maple, and a light alcohol sweetness. Taste is a nice hoppiness followed by caramel, and crystal malt and a very light alcohol warming.

Can from Vintage Cellar. Aromas of pine and floral hop. Copper/amber color with a decent off-white head. Very smooth, near creamy, carbonation. Seems about medium in body. Lightly roasted caramel malts nicely balanced by lots of hop. Not harsh, just good. Leaves a bit of tingle behind. The finish balance is fairly dry, and the hop keeps on. Nicely bitter.

Pours dark golden read with a frothy head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and sweet malts. Big aroma. Big malt flavor. Very smooth. Finishes bitter. Delicious beer. I can’t believe this comes in a can.

On draft at Oskar Blues brewpub. A tasty brew, albeit a little all over the place. A fair earthy dose put into the hop profile, but the sweet malty undertones seem to take the lead here. Some sweet fruity notes behind it. I suppose I was expected more of a hop forward double ipa type brew after seeing the tap handle - now after reading the description, maybe this was what they were going for all along. Nonetheless, while I enjoyed it, it wasn’t ’wow’- ing me over...

Can (of course). Pours a nice ruby/copper color with a little bit if lacing in the medium size head. Sweet fruity aroma, I knew I was going to like it as soon as I smelled it. Sweet fruity & malt flavor. With a great balance of hop bitterness. One of my new favorites.

Can thanks to CaptainCougar. Pours a nice amber color with decent sized off-white head. Very sweet and hoppy aroma. Flavor was a little hoppy, but the sweet malt really took control. A lot of caramelized sugar, almost like candied oranges. Great texture and mouthfeel. Really didn’t notice the high alcohol at all, never got the warm feeling.

Can, Average off-white head, mostly diminishing. Amber color. Heavy hoppy aroma, notes of pine. Long duration.

Can. Deep dark orange thick creamy small white head. Great aroma - lots of hops, lots of malt,a s advertised. Taste - wow. Tons of flavour - huge malt present, huge really citrusy sticky hops, but somehow the body comes off as almost crisp - really well made brew here folks to achieve this balance. Alcohol present, slight burn in finish. Lots of caramel in finish as well. Almost refreshing? Crazy, this is a world class brew in a small little can. Great stuff.

One of my favorite IIPAs and it comes in a can! Nice citrus fruits come through here... oranges, grapefruit, the whole nine. Very nice on the palate, perfect for a IIPA. Nice head and lacing to boot. It’s even better on tap! I highly recommend checking this one out, although it is a tad pricey for the 4-pack. Also worth mentioning is that 4 of these is plenty. At almost 9% it doesn’t take much to catch a buzz.

imperial ipa in a can! count me in! pours from the can a translucent brown with no head, with a nice hoppiness in the nose, and a touch of grapefruit. good flavor, bitter and citrusy, but the hops seem rather subdued.... a full-mouthed, chunky feel. a pretty solid effort.
