COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kettle Series. When hopportunity knocks, answer it. This ale is Caldera’s rendition of answering the Pacific Northwest call for a @*! pile of Centennial hops with a big beer to back it up. Don’t get left out in the cold, open up and fill the void within you . . .

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 4, 2016
Rating #1643 - #CBC2015 Beer 28 - Day 3 - Sample from can. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with Centennial overtones - big citrus/pine presence., Taste is more of the same, dry, spicy hops and doughy malts dominating the flavour, with a dose of pink grapefruit sweetness sure to last. Lovely

polo_marco (118) - milton, Vermont, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Smells of rotted fruit with slight nutty nose at the end. Color is deep burnt Orange which is very very nice shade of reddish shade. Very different color for IPA. Taste of bread rotted fruit and line resin at the end. Full body I’d say with flattish carbonation to Light bubbles. Really nice brew best I’ve had in a week. Way to go Oragan.
