(Caldera IPA) Can 355ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.1%
Deep orange colour on the body, two finhers of thick, off-white head on top, with great retention, leaving ,edium lacing on the glass.
Aroma of light citrus, mandarin, biscuit, grapefruit, grassy hops.
Taste follows, citrus and grapefruit at first with mandarins and orange peels following, quite bitter from the first sip, with the bitterness building up on its way to the aftertaste where it lingers for quite long.
Medium body with good lively carbonation, quite dry on the palate.
Very good IPA.

Arome has a nice citrus and grapefruit flavour. There’s a nice fluffy foam, which stays on long. Taste is heavy bitter, sour and with citrus. The aftertaste is really too bitter for me.

Lots of citrus. Just tons of grapefruit. And pine. It’s the pine tree grapefruit forest here. Taste is bitter and very very delicious. More of that heavy pine and grapefruit. Awesome beer. Bummed I had to go two hours to get this, I’d like it in my normal IPA rotation. Definitely recommend.
