NikkTwist (1589) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2014
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.

Syzzer (590) - Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2014
From 2-23-14 on tap @ lardos with my hot wife. Great oily white head, cloudy orange color. Not much for hoppiness, definite bitter component. Over ripe orange peel finish. 5.9 bd. Jd- 4 back of throat bitter, not much too it

maekchu (2082) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 8, 2013
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.

deaconmike (375) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2013
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.

Squizzle (137) - Idaho, USA - JUN 30, 2013
This is my favorite Caldera brew. Its consistent and not as hazy as some of the others.

BK7 (730) - Turner, Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2013
On tap at Venti’s South. Grapefruit, oranges and pine. Very dry. A funky bitterness throughout.

skoisirius (1632) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2011
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 (60) - 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 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.
