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 . . .

Can from Drinkshop. Gushing. High bitterness, alcohol lightly poking out, light dry fruits, hops flavour is relatively restrained. Dry resiny piney finish. Average. Boozy.

Hopmaestro (874) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2015
Aroma of earthy hops and grapefruit. Taste is sweet mango and almost a little peppery in the finish. The bitterness is a bit nutty and sharp. Tried to read the can date, but the code was too blurry. Have to get back to this one.

12 oz can poured into a pint glass: Dark copper orange with 2 inches of tan, orange hued, sticky foam the dissipates slowly. Huge pine and caramel aroma. The flavor is the same, a touch spicy, dry. It’s delicious, more pine than citrus, with a slightly metallic, acidic twang,Full bodied for sure, with a somewhat creamy mouthfeel.

Ein rundes Geschmackerlebnis. Viel Aroma, tolle Farbe - auch das Design paßt hervorragend - ein bißchen zu bitter im Abgang, voller Körper.

Caldera’s Hopportunity Knocks has a think, off-white head, some sheet lacing, and an opaque orange appearance, with tight bubble streams. The aroma is of old, turned, over-ripe fruit or rancid spinach, with some underlying stale caramel candy. Taste is of sugary, faintly moldy bread, and low-level bitterness (100+ IBU...really?). Mouthfeel is watery and Hopportunity Knocks finishes wet and unpleasant. Avoid. RJT

Esperava algo mais lupulado e amarga. Mas é uma boa cerveja. Balanceada e frutada.

12 oz can poured. Pours a thick copper orange with a near infinite foam head and lacing. Huge hoppy orange fruit aroma. Thick body, nice sweet fruit flavor throughout. A little bitter in the late finish, but overall a good IPA here.
