RATINGS: 1879   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.

almost clear, reddish copper, nice big off-white head. good head retention, and great lacing rings the glass. wonderful aroma of juicy citrus fruits and light pine. enough malt to give it a biscuity sweetness to balance the great hop dominance. not bitter, just tons of hop flavor. sticky on the tongue. medium body and carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Amber pour. Aroma of malt, pine, caramel, grapefruit and orange. Taste of herbal pine, malt, caramel, grapefruit and a bitter malty finish. Good american malty ale with a punch.

ttoadee (1664) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2018
Cloudy amber, nice khaki head. Nose is caramelsoruce twigs and a bowl of fresh cut mango. Bitter. Middle us a SOLID malt back bone, deep spruce resin, carmelized malt, and florishes of tropical fruit. Finish has a whiff of the ABV in the roof of the mouth, but mostly it is just hoppy , malty bliss.

Can at home, while watching Mad Max Fury Road Crome Edition on 2nd christmas day. Hazy dark amber with offwhite head. Sweet malts, caramel, orange peel, tea, biscuits, pine resin, but very juicy. Big sweet and moderate bitter. Heavy malty body and soft carbonation, very juicy barleywine / imperial ipa -ish. Good fuel.

Evilkniamhel (1049) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2017
På keg på RØØR, Oslo. Klar rødt/brun. Lukter av søt malt, kjeks, sterk hopp karakter. Smaker av sammen, med en tørr ettersmak.

tricksta_p (5360) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2017
Can from Speciaalbierpakket, not as fresh as I'd like. Aroma is firm biscuity malt, caramel, resinous hops, grapefruit, ripe-ish fruits, orange, and plenty of pine resin. Flavour is medium sweet and above moderate bitter. Body is above medium, bit sticky. Very resinous and malty with definitely some fruity hops as well, I'd like to try this again fresh from draft at the brewery one day.
