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 . . .

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.

MelvinKalksma (800) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, pine and hops.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque orange/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and pine; ends slightly bitter with hops.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. Centennial and malts are what define this beer, but it tastes great and the palate is creamy.

Can. Pours amber with off white head. Aroma is sweet malty caramel hops. Taste is sweet honey burnt sugar/caramel grapefruit piney with sweet piney finish. It’s pretty balanced and good but just not my preferred style.

Caldera hopportunity knocks On tap at Imazato with a burger. The aroma is big citrus while the taste is malty biscuit and bitter citrus/pine. A solid IPA but not all that special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
