Draught at the Caldera Brewing Co, Ashland, CA. Clear deep amber golden colour with a small off-white head. Fruity and floral hops, sweetness, mild bitterness and sweet malt in the aroma. Sweet resiny hops, moderate bitterness and a lot of sweet maltiness in the flavour. Very sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tomekk1978 (759) - 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.

mile (3323) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle. Golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some citrus - piney hoppyness, faint alcohol. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and tropical fruitiness with some citrus - piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel with piney - some citrus hoppynes, light alcohol. Nice well hopped IPA. Could be drier with less caramel. Finish gets bit sharp and could use some fruitiness.
