2014 Beer Camp Across America Release.

Tampa is a long way from our home base in Chico, but the guys down yonder in Florida sure can brew a great beer. Our friends at Cigar City find inspiration in the Cuban roots of their hometown, and that Latin-inspired flair is evident in Yonder Bock. This tropical take on the Maibock adds a Latin island flair to this traditional German style beer.

Enamored with the Latin roots of their Tampa home, Cigar City always tries to channel a bit of local history into their beers, e.g. the Humidor Series whose beers age on Spanish cedar as an homage to Tampa’s cigar making roots. Only five years old, this brewery deserves the fast praise that’s come its way.

Growler. This is a nice simple bock with higher than average hopping. Nice for the price.

This gold beer has a sweet aroma. A spicy sweet flavor which is light and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce can. Pours a dark gold with one inch beige head. Taste is of fruit, malt, caramel, pine, resin and grass. Similar aroma. Has a medium body with a slight fruity and dry finish. Easy to drink and enjoyable. Would have again.

Can - big foamy head, dark copper color, pretty balanced aroma and flavor, sweet malt, mildly fruity hops, expected more "tropical" flavor but still pretty good overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Type: 12-oz.can Glass: Modern Times pint glass From: Albertsons in Alpine, Calif. Price: $25.99 for the variety Beer Camp Across America 12-pack Purchased: Oct. 17, 2014 Consumed: Oct. 17, 2014 Misc.: Collaboration with Cigar City Brewing Company; Packaged June 4, 2014 at 8:45 a.m. Poured a caramel, auburn, mostly-clear color with five fingers of rocky, khaki-white head. Decent amount of bubble streams coming up at various parts from the bottom of the glass. Semi-layered, sporadic foamy spots of lacing along the sides of the glass. Great-looking retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.25) The various smells seemed to be fighting each other. For me it was caramel, rye, sugary toffee and sweetened iced tea meets mango, papaya, sour green grapes, apple and other tropical notes. Didn’t like the balance. (Smell - 3.50) Taste had similar qualities to the nose, but was better. Got rye malts, scotch, iced tea, caramel, toffee, mango, papaya, light Tropical Punch Bubble Yum, sour caramel apple, melon, passion fruit and boozy malts. (Taste - 3.88) Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, boozy, warming finish. (Feel - 3.88) This beer really grew on me. Tasty, but a tad boozy at times. Would have it again for sure. (Overall - 3.88) 3.82 86 B+

Salmoniform (832) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Poured from can to glass. Copper hue with creamy tan head that settled. Aroma is bread, caramel, clove, toffee, slight sulphur. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet with a spicy hop bitterness following and faint sulphur in the finish. Overall this is a very enjoyable brew.

Strykzone (5009) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Tulip at Global Brew Edw. Amberish and kind of clear. This beer offers big fruit that has an edge to it. The fruit is complex and is all over the place. Even passion and tropical flavors make an appearance. maltier towards the finish. At times it drinks like an American barleywine.

Duchammer (60) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Can: this beer was bad ass! Beer poured red orange. A lot of fruity aroma which is kind of against the main bock style but however I enjoyed it thoroughly. Beer had guava passion fruit citrus note. Beer had a really nice flavor not to malty just right.
