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 . . .

Hazy bronze with a beige head. Fruity/grapefruit aroma, A strong malty beginning with a bitter finish. Well balanced, not that hoppy, but still really good.

Ragnampiza (683) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUN 3, 2015
355 ml can from Les Vignerons. Light amber, perfectly clear, with a big, fluffy and persistent off white head. Great lacings. Ugh, the aroma is far from being inviting or pleasent (at least to me): tons of caramel/crystal malts presence, soapy hop notes, cooked vegetables, toffee and some mild chestnut honey reminiscence. Slightly, just slightly better in the mouth, but taste pretty much follow suite. Short earthy bitterness, moderate to high rooty astringency, slick and almost cloying sweet mouthfeel. Average carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. Caldera beers don’t really travel that well, I’m afraid.

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 (811) - 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.
