COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
So here we are 25 years later. Very humbled, grateful, and amazed that we got here in one piece. Still a mix of beer geeks and boardheads. Still independent. Still trying to find that perfect balance between art and commerce, work and play, inspiration and perspiration. Thanks for supporting us for all these years, and next time you’re in Hood River, stop by for a beer.

Pours a finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body. The aroma has a rich caramel malt aroma mixed with lemon and pine. The taste starts with caramel sweetness, then some moderate pine and lemon bitterness comes through, finishes with the caramel sweet again. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. It’s a hoppier and less sweet doppelbock. I enjoyed it.

mbgrayson (696) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Pours a clear dark golden color, with a white head. Aroma of mixed hops and malt. Taste is slightly more hops, but the malt is there too. Fairly smooth and drinkable. The relatively high alcohol is not apparent. Thumbs up.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Stars of with notes of crystallized sugar. Caramely, sugary, toffee, burnt sugar. There is a fruity cheese in the finish.

Pours amber with thin creamy head. Sharp malty aroma with some hops bitterness in the Taste. Big malt finish. Very well done, one of my favorite styles.

klaing (236) - Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Surprised this is not rated higher. Rich full malty flavor, with an oak vanilla strain that holds in the aftertaste. Very dry & a touch light for the style. Lovely & unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught. This is an ok doppel bock that is easier drinking and less cloying than most. The depth of flavor suffers though.

Tap at the Moth. Pours a slightly cloudy dark orange amber color. Tall white head. Aroma is dry, malty and woody. Flavor is malty, woody, Belgian fruit. Lightly dry finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

llcooldave (1188) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Pours a cloudy copper orange. Sweet toasty malt with a hint of toffee. Similar flavoe profile with the added citrus pith hops aftertaste. Overall, drinkable... Not too exciting but tasty nonetheless...

Pours brownish-orange with a decent sized off white head. Smells citrusy and slightly sweet. Tastes- Hoppier than I was expecting. I saw doppelbock and my mind went to Korbinian but this beer is much more bitter. More hops and citrus than anything else. That being said, once I got over my expectations I enjoyed this beer. The bitterness is not over whelming by any means and the citrus notes are pleasant. MF-Medium body and slightly carbonated. Overall- Not what I think of when I think doppelbock but a pleasant beer nonetheless.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2013
22oz bottle, shared at b3shine’s with local raters. Purchased from Party Town. Mostly hazy darker orange amber color. Thin white head. Couple dots of lace. Medium body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. I really don’t like the aroma. It has that distinct old malty hop caramel soapy aroma that I don’t care for at all. Moderate bitter, light to moderate sweet taste. At first, the flavor is pretty offensive, but once I get over the initial shock it grows on me a little, not horrible to drink. Some nice, robust chocolatey maltiness. Not my style, though.
