Draft at Moriartys. Orange gold pour with a fizzy/foamy white head. Light lace. Body feels much thicker than anticipated. Dried oranges. Tupelo honey. Light caramel malts. Not overly sweet. Full but a but bland. Mild toasted grain flavors. Not a lot of hop flavors to note. Buttery. Very smooth drinking. Not typical at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Grain and Gristle in Portland. Balanced nose: rough hop and sweet caramel. Deep copper/gold color. Mild pleasant hpppy initial / hops spread out over the tongue in mid and some smoky notes emerge / balances nicely in final. Medium body and chewy. A new one from Caldera. Seems like a cross between a pale and an IPA. Well-made stuff.

On tap at Post Street Ale House in Spokane. Golden orange with thin white head. Aroma is hoppy with pine and fruit. Taste is largely bitter with a fair amount of resin and a bit of grapefruit. Medium body, good carbonation levels. Pretty good IPA.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 isn’t over the top big and high alcohol, which I like. You can actually enjoy a fair amount before calling it a night. Recomend.
