From a can. Pours a mostly translucent golden amber with a medium foamy white head that laced. Aroma of mixed citrus, floral hops and light caramel notes. Flavor of grapefruit, light orange, moderate hop flavor and bitterness and just a touch of malt. Well done pale ale, leaning on the hoppy side for sure.

Pours a clear golden-amber body with a lacing, off-white head. Aromas of pineapple and grassy hops. Flavor is citrus hops with some floral notes. Finish is clean, dry, and bitter. Great body. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2010
Can from BoE. Gold with the slightest haze. White head. Piney hop aroma. Taste has a slight sweetness, but the dominant notes are grassiness and citrus. Some bitterness. Likeable beer, easy to enjoy. adrian910ss (2575) - Doylestown, PA, USA - FEB 11, 2010
12 oz can. Pours a clear liquid gold with a medium sized white head. Aroma of buttery notes, floral tones and grass. Taste is buttery with hints of floral hops, hay and grass. Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Clear orange, big foamy white head. Aroma of citrus and mild resin. Taste is smooth citrus, not too bitter or sweet. Very smooth texture and carbonation. Short bitter finish.

Can. Pours a nice clear gold in glass. Aroma is citrusy, grassy, a little spicy. Palate crisp and very light . . . almost too much so. Flavor starts with strong hop notes, throws a dash of malt in the middle, finish is fairly bitter for a Pale Ale. Another bold beer from Caldera.

(Sample Date: 8/2/2009 Source:Other) Nice big citrusy floral hop nose with some graininess. Clear light orange golden with a foamy white head. Clean crisp citrusy floral hops pop. Grainy sweetness to back. Finish is clean and crisp for a ale. willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JAN 6, 2010
20100106 12oz can from State Line. Clear, dark golden with small, quick white head. Aroma is perfumy, floral, citrusy. Palate is a bit thin, very mild bitterness, but a bit of a scraping astringency on an otherwise somewhat watery ending. Taste is fine, fairly generic NW pale ale. Of the three Caldera beers I tried, this was my least favorite. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Bottle; poured a really clear gold/amber color with a white head. Aroma of NW hops and a bit of bready caramel. A lot of fruit, citrus/spice, and earthiness in the nose. Flavor was not quite as good as the aroma, but quite tasty and hoppy. Very nice for the style. ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 28, 2009
