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 . . .

tomekk1978 (943) - Ząbki, POLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Aromat: głownie karmel, w tle chmiele cytrusowo- żywiczne, do tego utlenienie. Całość pachnie bardziej jak English IPA. Barwa: złota, klarowna. Piana biało -żółta, drobno pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanej wielkości i podobnej trwałości. Smak: niewielka, delikatna słodycz słodowa, z karmelem na czele, skontrowana chmielem. Goryczka umiarkowana, drażniąca i dosyć długa. Średnia pełnia, niskie do umiarkowanego wysycenie i kwaskowy, nieco alkoholowy finisz. Słabo. Kolejny utleniony produkt z za oceanu.
