New Glarus Brewing Co - Spotted Cow #craftbeer #beer #beerporn #brewcam
Back to the grindstone… 11:15am beer review seems a bit aggressive, yet I’ve been up since 7:30am to catch the EPL premier. English soccer, or football, rather. Needless to say, soccer viewing requires brewskis and broskis. And this time, I’m accompanied by a fellow broski named Tim. He’s gona help out, so let’s grab him a seat by the campfire for the next Beer Camp…
Sierra Nevada & 3 Floyd’s Brewing Co. : Beer Camp : Chico King
3 Floyd’s is such a monster of a craft brewery. These dudes don’t fuck around. For those that don’t know, among others, 3 Floyd’s brews some stellar beers such as Zombie Dust, Dark Lord, and Alpha King… now there’s Chico King. Let’s see if this is worthy for the throne…
Chico King pours a vibrant amber, deep orance with a crisp, firm white head. Quick, soft retention with some lingering effects thanks to the high hop profile. Aroma contains apricot, citrus, lemongrass, florals, and muffin notes from the malt. Mouthfeel is medium with adequate carbonation. A robust cereal like malt base kicks off the taste with following notes of apricot, orange, grapefruit, lemon rind, lemongrass, and a touch of canteloupe. Firm malt base, carressed by a thorough hop wave of citrus and fruit. Fit for a king.
So Tim, what do you think of the beer, “It was good. Ummm, pause, I wouldn’t order it again. It’s kind of like, we talk about woman on the 1 or 0 scale… this is a 0. I’m not going to pay for it.” Well put Tim, thank you for the pessimistic analysis. More for me. Let’s go back to more brewskis and broskis… Drink Responsibly. Over & Out.

Ahh yes, Beer Camp is underway and the third review is ready to shine. The majority of these camper beers need to be reviewed, considering the Flipside and Fall Variety packs are already out in stores… wonderful. A mere indication of procrastination and a mere display of demand at its finest. Sierra Nevada is cranking beer faster than we can drink. Don’t worry. We hear their Summer Fest will release by October 1st. Let’s spare the whimsical bullshit and get to the drinking…
Sierra Nevada & Cigar City : Beer Camp : Yonder Bock
Yonder Bock… sick packaging, sick name, sick liquid. Sierra Nevada teamed up with the all-stars out of Tampa to brew a deep, complex, German lager with a heavy malt base and assertive hop profile. An interesting style to see out of this dynamic duo.
Yonder pours a clear, deep ruby, cherry wood color, with a thin, firm off-white head. Aroma contains blood orange, dried apricot, the roasted malt gives off a dry velvet cake, following trails of tropical fruits, and slight earthy notes. Mouthfeel is pungent, medium bodied, with a crisp carbonation to complement the body. The taste is a fortified flavor of a morning glory muffin. Tropical fruit notes are present, along with a deep, robust, roasted breadiness from the malt. A sweet malt base smoothly transitions to a firm yet steady hop blast, consisting of tropical fruit and citrus acidity. Complex and well-rounded. Yonder Bock has a true essence of a tropical maibock.
…where’s rick ross at? We gotta have this guy sluggin back Yonder Bocks, tropical maibock music biotch. Can you imagine Rick Ross himself giving you a tour at Cigar City Brewing Co? Only in our dreams. Drink Responsibly. Over & Out.

Good thing we didn’t hold our breath for the 2nd Beer Camp review… otherwise, we would all be dead… very dead. But not to despair, we inhaled, exhaled, huffed, and puffed. The time is now for our 2nd Beer Camp Review… so unpack your bags, pitch your tents, build a fire, and hide your children… because Beer Camp is for 21+ and over… duh. Ain’t nobody got time for dat!!!
Sierra Nevada & Firestone Walker - Beer Camp : Torpedo Pilsner
Torpedo ay? Sounds familiar. This is Sierra’s second “Torpedo” beer. Except this style is a lager, not as big in the mouthfeel, providing a cleaner, crisper follow-through and finish. It’s also constructed by another craft behemoth, Firestone Walker. These guys, meaning Sierra and Firestone, must be the coolest summer campers alive. Probably just kickin’ it by the fire, eating s’mores, singin’ “Kumbaya My Lord!!” and smokin’ a doobie…I mean smokin’ a… um, cigar? Actually, I forgot, campers don’t smoke. Smokey the Bear smokes… that dude must be lifted all the damn time, bird watching and shit. Ok let’s drink!
Torpedo pours a bright golden straw with an ample, frothy white head. The retention and head tends to be stronger with this type of pilsner due to the higher hop (alpha acids) profile. A light doughiness comes through the nose from the pilsner malt. A grassy, earthy, and lemon citrus follow in the aromatics. Mouthfeel is light to medium, with a perfect level of carbonation; substantial carbonation to highlight the hops and bolster the body. Taste is a light bready malt characteristic, followed by an earthy, grassy, and lemon rind finish. Hints of mineral and pepper in the background. Torpedo Pilsner possesses a crisp, clean finish from the lager yeast.
We’re beginning to wonder as to why Sierra came up with a 2nd Torpedo beer. Do they need more artillery or something? More infantry? Are they preparing for craft beer warfare? Or do they just wanna bomb our taste buds with hop missiles? We don’t know. But we do know that even a pacifist would drink the shit out of this beer. And so will we. Drink Responsibly. Over & Out.
