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 murky amber with a huge off white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, hops, and roasted malt. Taste of the same with more caramel and slight alcohol. This medium to full bodied brew is well balanced and goes down smooth.

peteinSD (1460) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 20, 2013
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 (1648) - 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.
