Big light tan head settles to a frothy layering above a clear caramel honey golden colored beer.

Citrus and pine like hops with some light caramel malt notes in the aroma of this pale ale.

Light citrus hops coming through in the taste with a very light caramel malt making an appearance.

A light dryish aftertaste with a bit of the caramel malts sticking around and bringing a slight hops bitterness with it with this medium bodied Caldera beer.

Decent tastes without being overbearing.

Serving type: can

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

LOOK: The 12 oz can depicts a brew kettle and hops. Pours a hazed deep copper orange color with a white head that leaves sporadic lacing.

SMELL: Floral, grapefruit nose, a touch of berry like fruityness from the yeast.

TASTE: Bitter, earthy hop character upfront. Herb and pine dial in strongly. Toast and faint caramel toffee on the back end. Expressively hop forward ale with definite citrusy alpha acid presence.

FEEL: Medium bodied and well carbonated brew. Has a dry earthy hop bite and prickly texture.

OVERALL: This is a solidly hoppy, sessionable canned brew from Caldera. An impressive pale ale, I'd recommend this for camping.

Serving type: can
