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 . . .

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2013 On tap at brewey. Rich, hazy auburn color, massive floral hop aroma backed by a whiff of malt. Enormous sticky orange hop flavor with just enough malt to stand up to it (which may depress its rating in the hops-only-please PNW). A tremendous beer, world-class.

Malty hoppy smell, nice fruit citrus bomb with slight pine on the back end. Nice and juicy IPA.

Share courtesy of MikeJslc. It pours with a clear copper body that supports a white head of foam. The aroma offers up some sweetness, malts, biscuit malt, a bit of sweet orange hard candy and faint resiny hoppiness. The taste has a resiny hop character and seems to lack hop depth and flavor which prevents it from tying in with the various malt notes. I get a bit of esteriness here and there too as a bit of grapefruit citrus notes pop up near the finish. This seems disjointed.

Herbal, fruity hop aroma. Herbal hop flavor, with fruit and spice. Sweetish malt flavor; moderate bitter finish. Thanks, MikeJslc

Bomber thanks to Mike. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. Sweet caramel malts some light citrus. A fruity flavor with oranges and mellow tea, some biscuit, earthiness. Decent. Clean and light.

Copper, clear, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, moderate resiny hops. Flavor of toffee, a little toast, moderate piney hop character. Fairly high caramel character for an IPA, although some resiny bitterness lingers in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber with a thick foamy white head. Pine, grapefruit, sweet malt. Initial hop flavor followed by a sweet finish and aftertaste. A little bit of a watery mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Caramel odor. More malt than hops. Dark copper. Really nothing out of the ordinary. Not enough distinguishable flavor for me ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
