hfmejias (747) - Dover, Delaware, USA - MAY 24, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Can. Pours clear amber with a generous white head that retains lots of lacing. Aroma of piney and citrus, cascade hops mixed with some, very nice and earthy. Nice hoppy bitter taste well balanced with some caramel sweetness from malts. Very good tasting beer, enjoyable and drinkable; overall very good beer.

Douberd (2384) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2014
(Caldera Pale Ale) Can 355 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 5.5% Clear golden orange colour on the body, tall and thick white head, with very good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Nice citrus aroma, light hops,very fruity. Taste also fruity but not as the aroma suggested, citrus, some piney notes especially on the finish, Begins kinda sweet but it develops quickly an intense enough bitterness, with long duration on the aftertaste. Medium body, nicely carbonated, mildly dry palate. Very good.

Can from Bo Brooks’ Lighthouse Liquors, Baltimore. Golden in colour, with a decent, white, head. A well-balanced beer, with citrus fruits, juicy hops, a hint of pine and lengthy, bitter finish. Very good.

slowrunner77 (5986) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2014
"an aromatic well balanced pale ale. maybe a touch on the hoppy side, but i’ll never complain about that. blending/balance seems to be Calderas thing. this is a nice pale i’d buy more of if it were available here."

oliodnb (343) - ITALY - OCT 1, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 355ml can. Pours clear light golden with two fingers of slightly off white head. Smells is malts, light sweet fruits (apricots), some citrus marmalade. Taste is similar with the hops muted, probably by the time. I guess a too old can to fully appreciate it. Not very pleasant bitter finish.

Pours a bright copper with a giant rocky head that leaves lots of lacing. Nose is bready malt, tropical fruit, citrus hops. Medium body, low carbonation, slightly slick. Taste is piney hop bitterness, faint soapy-ness. Finish is slightly astringent and floral. Meh.

Benzai (8587) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2014
Can @ home. Clear orange golden color, average to medium sized white head. Aroma is malts, hops, tropical fruits. Taste malts, hops, bitter, lightly tropical fruits. Decent body and carbonation. Pretty heavy bitterness for an APA. Still a nice hoppy beer though.
