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.

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

Pours a copper/amber color with a medium white head that fades to a thin dish soap like spotty lacing. Smells of caramel, pale malt, and grapefruit. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. With a slight apple tartness in the back end. Mouthfeel is surupy and pretty thin, with ok carbonation and a dry finish. For a 25th anniversary commemorative beer It’s pretty lame. Full Sail could have done a lot better. I did like the sour element they added though.

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours a cloudy amber (pale??) with an off-white head. Crispy caramellish malt aroma. Rich body, caramel and perfumy hops leading to a rather bitter finish. Nice but stop calling it pale! 230213

From Nathaniel’s Corner Store. My favorite style, glad to see some Americans taking a stab at it. Faint nose, a bit of fruit and malt, but faint. Coppery with beautiful lacing. Big malty palate, I get close to a Barley Wine flavor. Hmm, did they use the right yeast? Where is the ester profile. It’s good, just doesn’t strike me as true to style, but who says it has to be.

Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours hazy orange with a medium beige head with decent retention; leaves a little lace. It is pale for a doppelbock, but not as pale as I was expecting. I was expecting a blonde or copper color, which would have been a little more interesting. Aroma is caramelly, biscuity, pretty faint, though. Taste starts out sweet before a lingering bitterness sets in; it’s also savory throughout. Has a nice toasted flavor. There’s noticeable alcohol but it doesn’t taste 9%. Mouthfeel is oily, carbonation average, body full. Pretty tasty.
