A conundrum in the world of beer styles. This ale does not fit any conventional beer style. Orange in color, this beer has hop characteristics of oranges and tangerines.
Grist: Premium Two Row, Crystal
Hops: Amarillo, Cascade, Simcoe
Original gravity: 1.052

On tap at brewery. Golden orange color. Orange nose with a terrific orange then tangerine flavor that finishes with a dry bite. Darn close to an IPA, a total winner.

This is my favorite Caldera brew. Its consistent and not as hazy as some of the others.

Oranged golden pour. Light effervescent pine notes on the nose. Mild orange zest in their somewhere. Flavor is taken from the nose and blown up. Light sweet malts up front, with a light grapefruited piney hop push in the middle, flavors of orange mixed around in there, and lingering hoppy pine bitterness in the finish. Solid, balanced, and just a bit different than your usual IPA. Good stuff!

authenticmead (66) - West Coast, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2011
On tap at: mainbrew.com Visual: Pours a bright orange with a creamy white head. Nose: Nice citrusy hops. Not much else! Palate: Citrus hops burst out of this one. Smooth dry finish. Not much malt. Conclusion. A dry finishing easy drinking IPA. It is quite smooth and and all around great easy drinking west coast IPA. This one isnít over the top big and high alcohol, which I like. You can actually enjoy a fair amount before calling it a night. Recomend.

Tap at Goodfoot. Dark gold pour with a thin white head. Big citrus hop aroma, very aromatic. Smooth tasty malt and an explosion of citrus hop bitterness. Good brew.

Draught at Horse Brass. Somewhat orange body and a bit of orange in the taste. But overall, just a solid IPA (though it was listed as a Pale) with very nice flavor. Very enjoyable.

Tap @ living room theaters... Pours a reddish which fades to orange in the middle. Great aromas of fruit...spices... and hops. sweet taste with a nice bitter finish... awesome beer.
