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.

On the second can of christmas odkar blues sent to me: a dark ruby red pour, lingering head, sweet dates and honey, some sweet malt. {something like lagunitas imperial red?}

Can shared with jerc & mabel - their can. Dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma of green and resiny hops. Medium body. Flavour is quite full and balanced, with big malt and big hops both sitting nicely together. Well made and enjoyable, but it didn’t knock my socks off. I’ll give it credit, though, for hiding that 8.7% very well.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2017 2017-02-24. Very hazy red brown body, modest beige head fades. Aroma of caramel malt, muted hops and alcohol. Flavour is moderately bitter and alcoholic, malty base with notes of caramel and tasty malt. Lingering bitterness and alcohol. Hops not as fresh as they could be unfortunately. Average plus bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Enjoyable but I suspect not at it’s peak. 7/3/7/3/15+ Can from the LCBO, Toronto.

2007-12-XX. Orangey amber body with a small frothy beige head. (3+) Surprising amount of hops in the aroma, green and earthy, leafy. (6+) flavour has a decent amount of bitterness. Something about the malt profile I do not care for, or perhaps its the combination of the caramel malt character with the hops. I know I have tasted something similar before but do not know where. Average palate. I had high hopes but this just did not do much for me - Bit disappointing. 6/3/6/3/13 Can from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo.

Pours a burned orange with a creamy head that lasts and laces sheets throughout. Smells of big thick hops, malty and possibly a tiny bit of dried fruit and some citrus. Taste huge hops, then huge malt to balance with a grapefruity finish but not bitter. Mouthfeel is medium with perfect carbonation. Crisp, refreshing, delicious, ABV is non existant. Im liking canned beer more and more.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2009 Bottle from Mcbackus via homebrew mystery swap 1.0. Hazy dark amber with large and well retaining head. Aroma of sweet dough, soft spice and hops. Flavor is strong caramel, spice, slight earthiness, very resiny and dry, slight molasses, very nice. Medium body and well carbonated. Very nice! --- Rerate, can thanks to 17thfloor. Cloudy orange with pancake beige head. Aroma is distinct pine with orange, caramel, slight cardboard and alc. Flavor is cardboard, citrus, sweet, vegetal, cloying. Medium with light carbonation. I’ve had better versions. 3/6/3/5/11 = 2.8, wow a whole 1. drop.

Hazy orange pour with a thick head and great lacing. Spicy hoppy aroma. Another very fine brew from the only company that makes a good beer in a can.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 17, 2007
pours a rich amber with a fluffy light tan head. it sticks a round for quite a while and leaves a "U" shaped ring the entire way down the glass. the initial hop aroma burns at my nose...nice. it’s followed with earth, caramel malt and really resinous piney hops. flavors of honey, cereal grains, brown sugar and orange with the alcohol coming in late. bitter, dry and resinous hops finish it off. pine lingers for a while. medium to rich in body and mouth feel......very enticing aroma but the flavor doesn’t match up. it’s not nearly as robust and never really develops even as it warms. still, quite tasty...

fattibobatti (246) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2007
can which is strange but interesting, pour was a deep amber with a amazing white foam that provided great lacing. smelled of resin and pine hops. The taste was at first a spicy pine hop flavor followed by a bready malt, finish showed almost no alcohol but carried citrus and pine hops for a while.

BeerBiker (1415) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2007
[Sampled to Grisky-Bisky at Niels with Dr. Planökonom.] Had very big expecs to this can, but I found it too bitter in an unbalanced way. Sticky and metally despite its great look and aroma. The flavor hit me with a hammer and it took a while before I recovered. Maybe better next time.

Bluesman (9) - Fort Morgan, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2007 does not count
Pours a hazy orangish color with an off white head. The aroma packs a punch of floral hops. Real smooth palate; mouthfeel is sorta thick and it goes down real smooth and doesn’t leave a bothersome residue. Bitter and balanced flavor. This is a big beer, a tasty beer, and dammit I wish they sold it in six packs rather than four packs. It’s snowing like crazy in Denver tonight, and I’m pretty happy to have this beer to keep me warm.
