First had: on tap at Farmers' Cabinet, Philly, PA

Part of an 8-beer series brewed by Evil Twin with Terry of Cabinet Artisanal, for Philly Beer Week 2012, that was further part of the 3x8 series that included Cabinet and Stillwater. Each of the three brewers took a base beer and "tweaked" it in 8 different ways. The "kini" series used Bikini as a base, and were brewed at 10 IBU intervals from 10-80.

Camkini was 40 IBUs.

I've gotta say, these beers were not too impressive, and all basically tasted the same, with extremely subtle differences in taste.

Poured a cloudy yellow color with a small wispy head. Aroma is hop-dominant, with a slight ammonia scent, pale biscuity malts barely coming through. Sweet fruity taste up front, pear and melon, hints of citrus zest, and a potent blast of grassy bitterness in the finish. A little watery and a bit metallic. Light body, and fairly drinkable with a super low ABV, but not very desirable overall.
