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.

Bottle. Hazy copper color wth an orange hue and a scattering of off-white foam. Aroma is heavy and dense malt with toasted grain and darker raisin and barley style notes. Taste is dominated by sweet malt with light oxidization and heavier raisin, caramel, and darker fruit flavors. Some lingering hop bitterness but it’s almost hidden under all the heavy malt. Makes me think of an Englsh barley wine. Even, coating mouthfeel. Nice sipper.

nealblind (916) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Very orange pour. small head good retention. Smells of spices; nutmeg, clove and malt. Tastes both sweet and bitter, resembling an esb. well defined citrus pine hops and caramel malts. Also orange flavors. Odd legume/bean flavor halfway through. Well hidden alcohol under the intense hops and malt. Sorta like beer concentrate.

Wittales (649) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Appearance was cloudy copper caramel with diminishing creamy 1 finger Off white head , spotty lacing. Aromas are caramel, toffee, pale, crystal sweets malts, hops are tiny as with alcohol. Taste are sweet malt backbone of toffee, brown sugar, caramel, touch of bourbon or maple. Slight alcohol and grapefruit, pine, orange hops. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with medium body, lasting sweet malty slightly hoppy bitter finish. A different brew with a strange different recipe. I likey.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 13, 2013
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy dark red brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was sweet and malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish. The sharp flavor contained notes of sweet hops and malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

Hazy copper pour. Malty nose with a bit of piney hops. Hops come thru too much for a dopplebock. Carbonation’s about right.
