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

A-Pours a lightly hazy, darker orange. Off-white, foamy cap. Leaves chunks and dots of lacing.

S-Aroma seems to be a little dead; maybe a sliver past it's prime. Still, there is a solid citrusy hop pop here. A bit piney as well. Also some other fruity hop aromas. Caramel malt.

T-Flavor is essentially the same animal but a bit more lively. An above average IPA that may be a little old. I can still taste it's essence and I like what it's contributing.

M-Medium everything: body, bitterness, carbonation.

O/D-I can tell it's older than I want it to be but it was still a good IPA. Will need to revisit

A nice dark red, copper color.

White head that leaves a lot of lacing.

Caldera has done a great job and sealed it in i can!

Orange, citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit pine, and sweet caramel malt. Bitterness at the end.

Great body and medium carbonation.

A really good Westcoast-IPA !
