RATINGS: 1869   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.84/5   IBU: 60   EST. CALORIES: 261   ABV: 8.7%
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.

Cloudy copper, thinnish tan head. Nose is caramel, pine, fruit (mostly orange), brown sugar, malt. Flavor is caramel, piney orangey hops. A hint of lemon in a very bitter finish. Body is a bit thin.

Nice hoppy nose! Color is deep amber with reddish hue. The flavor is hoppy with a nice bitter quality. Somewhat dry with a nice balance of malt and a touch of fruit. Caramel isn’t overbearing and the alcohol is extremely well hidden. The can given to me is a variation of the can pictured and is rated 8.7%ABV

theisti (4060) - Kansas, USA - APR 12, 2007
Can. Pour is amber is a large, solid white head. A bunch of lacing, a very nice looking pour. Aroma is pine and sweetness, baker’s cocoa maybe. Initial taste is strong hops, though balanced nicely with malt. The sweetness remains in the taste, though more caramel now. Finish is bright and clean. No trace of alcohol in this one. Great beer all around, tough at $5 a can, certainly not an everyday beer.

Awesome pine aroma. Nice looking beer, too--smooth and creamy head with good lacing. Goes down exceptionally smooth for 90 IBUs and 9.2% ABV. Is comparable to a strong pale ale.

pineypower (3245) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2007
Another great beer from a can. Had to pour a little just to see the beer, but drank the rest from the can. Light copper body with a nice white head. Floral hops on the nose, slight sweet malts. Big hop taste balanced nicely with some caramel and fruit. Very well balanced.

Nejhleader (1536) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2007
tap at mcgraths pub. Very similiar to a stronger IIPA, decent body, little thick. Sweet Hoppy aroma, Flavour is dominated by Fruity Hops with a bit of spice, pretty decent.

lamas (1630) - Washington DC, USA - APR 7, 2007
Can. A deep copper pour with a smallish light-tan head. Pretty bubbly. A decent amount of both hops and caramel in the well-balanced nose. Goes down pretty smooth with just as much balance. Some nice caramel and hints of apple juice upfront followed by bitter hoppy notes at the end. Some musty, funkiness in the middle. Pretty good, but 3 bucks and some change for a 12 oz. can is ridiculous. My can says 8.7% ABV and doesn’t look as cool as the one pictured either.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2007
From the can, it pours a nice copper color with a thick, rocky white head. Aroma is very hoppy - citrus, pine and a smidge of floral. Flavor started off with the hoppy notes, but eventually the malt come to the front. Somewhat sweet, fruity, caramelly. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Enjoyable. Pricing is perhaps a little out of whack.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2007
Ok, first beer rating from a can. Not much carbonation on opening. Kind of a quiet opening unlike most cans. Clear copper with about an inch initially of froth. Settling down quickly. Huge hop aroma typical hoppy IPA. Pine, citrus and caramel. Very smooth body and low carbonation. A bit chewy. Chocolate malt hit me right away, followed by intense bitter hops. Wow! Lots of hops in this one. Reminds me of fresh Bigfoot. Malt definitely present in flavor especially chocolate in the finish. For sure best beer I’ve ever had in a can.

Sammy (11811) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2007
Good for it’s style with lots of hops and balancing malt. A potent lacey mix with cloudy yellow and beige head. Hoppy "C" aroma. Some citrus, drying aftertaste.
