Can to taster glass. Lots of bitter yet fruity hops. Grapefruit, orange & pine, too. Good malt balance, finishing w/ some more bitterness.

Can from Aeon mall. Somewhat cloudy amber, decent lacing. Huge pine hop aroma. Very bitter finish, mostly pine, but with some malts to balance it.

Crash_the_dog (161) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Pour from a can at Grinders. Nice to look at - deep orange with a creamy head. Bold nose, generic hops, with a touch of citrus. Taste is nice blend of flavors, without any real character or dominant traits. Texture is sticky. Overall, a solid beer, but not life-changing by any stretch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bpreo (1715) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2014
A bit dry. Strong IPA flavor (robust). It’s tough, not florally like other American imitations.

eire1207 (5) - USA - OCT 13, 2014 does not count
12oz can into a shaker. Pitney citrus aroma. Clear copper appearance, 2 finger head. Just enough malt to temper the hops. Easy to drink, with a slightly bitter finish.

slowrunner77 (6016) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2014
"lots of citrusy hops in the nose and flavor, but balanced almost immediately by a sweet malty presence. another winner from Caldera. Not the best IPA i’ve ever had but another very solid effort. nice bitter finish as well."

drpimento (2278) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Pretty good beer. Poured with a large thick cream colored long-lasting head, good leasing and a slightly hazy honey amber color. Aroma is fresh beer, malt and hop resin. Flavor is like aroma and all qualities of sweet bitter and acid are well-balanced. Body is very good perhaps just a touch soft. Good drinking beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can at Beer Temple. Hazy orange coloured with a small white head. Fruity aroma of hops, caramel and pine needles. Fruity flavour of caramel, hops and grapefruits with notes of pine needles. Dry hoppy finish.
