Sierra Nevada Beer Camp
Alt Route AltBier
(6.6% abv)
(collaboration with Victory brewing company)
Again this was not a style I would have thought I would like out of the many represented styles in this 12 pack but it was good (not as good as the ESB I had earlier). Again, it was more malt forward but did have more prominent hop characteristics than the ESB. It had roasted malt characteristics but also had a citrusy hop bitterness towards the end. Good Stuff. I thought I would have liked the Milk Stout more than some of these other styles, but I was wrong though the Milk Stout was by no means bad.

Chico King Pale Ale
(6.5%abv)
(collaboration with 3 Floyds Brewing Co.)
Floral and citrus in the nose. The taste is more subdued hops, hop bitterness, and more malt but this is what I expect from a pale ale. It had mango and citrus.

Tater Ridge
Scottish Ale brewed with Sweet Potatoes
(7.0% abv)
(Collaboration with Asheville Brewers Alliance)
Roasted Malt in the nose. At first, I was getting the malt with some hop bitterness but didn't see the Scottish ale part of it. As it warms, I get more of the scotch ale/Scottish ale characteristics though I like it more than most scotch/Scottish ales I have had.

Double Latte
Coffee milk stout ale with coffee & lactose added
(Collaboration with Ninkansi Brewing Co.)
(7.6 % abv)
Huge Coffee and some dark chocolate in the nose. Mouth feel was smooth at first hence the milk stout but it didn't last and was a little watery but it isn't an imperial stout so its to be expected. If you like coffee, which I do, you will probably like this.

Yonder Bock Tropical Maibock
(Collaboration with Cigar City)
(7.7 % abv)
I don't drink a lot of Maibocks. This had grapefruit/pineapple in the nose. The can states that there is there is the aroma of guava/mango/passion fruit in the nose. I got a little of the mango. I consume very little of the others so I didn't really recognize those in the nose. I get a little grapefruit bitterness throughout with the finish being the same. So it had some hop bitterness but it leaned towards the malty side. It was very drinkable for the abv. I am on the west coast and drink my fair share of bitter west coast IPAs so this is a nice change of pace.

Green Flash
Imperial IPA India Pale Ale
(9.0% abv)
I get pine and a peppery spicy smell in the nose. Huge grapefruit bitterness followed by a dryness and bitterness that lingers for quite a while. Good stuff. As it warms, I get more of a malt backbone but this a west coast IPA all the way but the "savory" factor which is talked about on the bottle gives it a twist though I only got it in the nose. Good stuff.

There and Back English Style Bitter
(5.6% abv)
(Collaboration with New Glarus Brewing Co.)
When I picked this up I was excited about all the beer but picked out a few I thought would be my favorites but was I wrong. I didn't see this one coming as from what little I have had of the beer style, I haven't really liked. This was really good. So far the best out of the bunch. One of the lower abv beers in the pack but one of the most balanced in my opinion. I got a lot of malty grainy goodness in the nose. The taste was more of the same but I did get some hop bitterness in there too. It was very good and one of the best beer camp beers I have had so far.

CANfusion Rye Bock
(7.2% abv)
(Collaboration with Oskar Blues Brewery)
The nose on this beer is grapefruit, citrus, and peppery spiciness. I have drank Sierra Nevadas Ruthless rye which is a Rye IPA. This does not taste anything like that. I think the combination of citrus flavor of the hops with the rye makes this taste almost like cranberry juice to me but not at all in a bad way. It also reminds me of sour but a sour light. I like sours. I like cranberry juice. I like this beer. This is easily to me one of the better beers in the 12 pack so far.

Electric Ray
India Pale Lager
(8.6% abv)
(Collaboration w/ Ballast Point)
Pine in the nose. At first, I got a lot of sweetness followed by citrus bitterness. As it warmed, It tasted a lot like grapefruit. If lagers tasted more like this, I might drink more of the style.

Yvan the Great
Belgian Style Blonde
(Collaboration with Russian River Brewing Co.)
(6.3% abv)
Typical Belgian Farmhouse nose with a lot of the Belgian yeast fruitiness coming through. It is very good. You get the Belgian yeast flavor (I always have a hard time describing the taste). Almost tastes like the gum Juicy fruit. It has a very dry finish. Probably would be a good beer for a wine drinker. I am not a wine drinker and could see enjoying this as go-to beer. Too bad its limited.

Port Brewing
Old Viscosity Ale
Ale Aged in Oak Barrells
(10% abv)
Funny thing about this beer is that it doesn't say its a stout so I was pleasantly surprised to find out it was. I was thinking it was a Black IPA but I should have known it wasn't in that it was barrel aged. I got chocolate and vanilla in the nose. Very little coffee. You do get coffee bitterness in the taste along with the chocolate and a almost sweet vanilla also. Its very good and I would have picked up another if I knew it was an Imperial Stout but the labeling makes no mention of it.

Clown Shoes
Undead Party Crasher
American Imperial Stout
(10% abv)
This one says that they had to change the name of it so I assume this is possibly Vampire Slayer which I had last year and was really good. I get a lot of chocolate and some raisin in the nose. A little coffee but a lot less than I typically get from Imperial stouts. Taste follows nose though you also get some bitterness (surprisingly not coffee bitterness) and some smoke as they do use some smoked malt. I have only had a few Clown Shoes beers but none of them have been bad. Good Stuff!
