reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2009
Can from Uto. Amber with a lasting off white head. Nose of orangey/piney hops and caramel. Taste is quite sweet and malty with some nice bitter hops. Looks like the pale is the best of the three Iíve had so far.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2009
12oz can from grape & gourmet. pours a clear, light gold with a thick, soapy white head and great lacing. aroma is quite pleasing with bright citrus notes of pink grapefruit and tangelo, soapy and sugary floral hop notes, a touch of tropical fruit, and just a hint of pine and honey. flavor is very nice as well with fresh grapefruit, orange, and lemon notes backed by resinous pine and slightly sweet floral hops and toasted caramel malts leading to a bitter, dry, citrusy finish. palate is smooth and very sessionable with solid carbonation. overall, a well done IPA from a can.

LtDan (1805) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - OCT 9, 2009
Appearance: Pours an bright amber gold with a 1/4 inch of sudsy head. Leaves tons of lacing on the glass. Aroma: Huge amounts of grapefruit, orange, floral scents, a touch of pine and sweet malt. Taste: Juicy grapefruit, fresh squeezed orange juice, pine, sweet and spicy malt. Ends with a big bitter hops presence. Mouthfeel: Juicy and medium bodied. Overall: I was quite pleased with this beer. It has everything I want in an IPA.

awiseman01 (469) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Can from OTM in Point Loma. Pours slight cloudy golden/orange with 1/2" foamy white head. Nose is delicious tangerine, citrus and passion fruit hops...one of the more inviting aromas I can recall on an IPA. Flavor is pretty much in line with the nose, decent amount of hops and a nice blend of carbonation. Finish is a little dry and earthy, a little unpleasant compared to the nose and initial taste. Overall very good IPA.

DalzAle (2001) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Can from Scrizzz (Thanks!) Light pumpkin orange pour, plenty of carbonation and a good strong syrupy hops aroma. Flavor is solid, bitter hops, lemon/grapefruit with a very strong and floral finish. My 1st Caldera brew, and I canít wait to try more!

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2009
LIght amber color with a smallish, slightly creamy, light ecru head. Aromas of grapefruit and wet grass. Start has a bit of caramel and is quickly followed by dry grain, citrus and grass. Just a hint of fruit. A decent IPA.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 28, 2009
THOUGHTS: Rather well balanced. Easy to drink. Nice. TECHNICAL: Can. Poured a clear, dark, slightly brown, orange with an average to large, off-white head that mostly diminished, but left excellent lacing. The aroma was light to moderate caramel malt, grapefruit, more orange and less resinous hops that increased as it warmed. A slight funk too when it was warmer. The initial flavor was sweet, lightly acidic and bitter; while the finish was lightly sweet and rather bitter with an average to long duration. There was caramel malt, orange and grapefruit, leaning more to orange, piney and resinous hops. The medium body was sort of oily, then dry with fizzy carbonation and a a dry, slightly metallic, and light to moderately astringent finish.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Serving: 12 oz. can. Appearance: Deep gold with a touch of amber. Foamy, off-white head. Good head retention and lacing. There may be hope in this one. Aroma: Lighter nose than I was hoping for. Pine hops, soap, and a hint of citrus. Taste: Big, resinous pine hop flavor with notes of soap, honey, and earth. Tastes as though it was dry hopped. Unfortunately Iíve been down this road before and there isnít much new offered by this brew. Palate: Medium-high carbonation with a medium body and a long bitter finish. A bit of unwelcome soapiness lingers on my tongue. Overall: Welcome to another tongue lashing IPA! Okay, but it doesnít hold a candle to a Two Hearted or a Nugget Nectar.
