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. For all the details behind this tribute follow this link to www.N3978Y.com. G’Mornin’. G’Day. G’Knight.

outstanding. Brilliant aroma, gorgeous looks, and what taste and mouthfeel and everything. Soft mellow bitterness lingering around, lip smacking. G’Lorious!

DOC: 2/14/2017

2015 BJCP Category: 21B Specialty IPA - Red IPA

AROMA: Strong fruity hop aroma, especially of berry and citrus. Some piney notes as well. Low amber malt sweetness. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Reddish copper/amber. Clear. Large off white soapy foam retains and laces very well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Well-balanced palette of equal parts malty sweetness and dank hop bitterness and flavor. Base has a caramel/toffee-like taste not unlike an amber ale. Bitterness is dank rather than dry. Hops create light fruity notes on the first half (berry and citrus) followed by piney/resiny/smokey notes on the backend. Light clean alcohol flavor is not distracting. Slight residual sweetness and some drying bitterness make for a fine aftertaste. 17/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body and carbonation. Texture is fairly soft, but not chewy or velvety. Finishes smooth. Seems a little lighter than 8.7% ABV. Minor alcohol warmth. Would be ideal on nitro. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Has all the best features of ambers, strong ales and IPAs. A fun and interesting beer to drink. 9/10

ça sent le houblon et la résine, la couleur est d’un rouge rubis légèrement foncé, ça à le gout de l’odeur avec une légère note amère ça change des red ipa que j’ai pu goutté le palais est juste magique, c’est léger en bouche malgré le taux d’alcool assez élevé, une légère carbonation avec une finale amère. au top cette imperial red ipa!

Pours a red head with strong red pepper aromas. Amber to ruby colored body. In mouth a big load of hops, fruit and medium malts. Round and a bit spicy for an IIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bawelt (817) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 18, 2017
Très bien foutue ! Nez : un petit côté malté, un fond éthylique mais qui soutiennent des houblons assez présents et puissants. Ils le sont surtout en bouche : orange très amère, du résineux, beaucoup de résineux. Finale très amère et sèche mais également assez éthylique. Bien équilibrée.
