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 youíre in Hood River, stop by for a beer.

thedm (5355) - 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. Carbonationís about right.

trujahwarrior (510) - Monroe, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2013
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 Itís 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 Nathanielís 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. Itís good, just doesnít 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; itís also savory throughout. Has a nice toasted flavor. Thereís noticeable alcohol but it doesnít taste 9%. Mouthfeel is oily, carbonation average, body full. Pretty tasty.
