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.

Scrapersnbeer (1486) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Fruity, spicy aroma. Seems more like a heller bock. Slightly hazed orange, one third-finger head. Chalky malt and alcohol burn for a taste, just mildly sweet. Not thick or heavy necessarily, but it will weigh you down, especially since it come’s only as a bomber. Not destined to become a regular for the brewer.

alexanderj (3318) - Branson, Missouri, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle; poured a clear orange/amber color with an off white head. Aroma of yeast, must, caramel, flowers, perfume and honey. Alot of caramel and ripe fruit up front, with a floral and spice finish. Not much of a dopplebock, but a solid beer.

Aroma is sweet. Pours amber orange color with a white head that doesn't last long. Good balance between the hops and malt ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sammy (8679) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
What is a pale doppleback? Bottle from Champane’s Cellars. A good bitterness and spicy. Some malt liquor aftertaste. Wasn’t the style but nice and drinkable. Nice bubbly head.

solidfunk (4029) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Tastes much more like a pale ale than a doppelbock. Ok for pale ale. Pours clear orange. Aroma of citrus, orange hops. Medium carbonation and consistency. Some lacing. Taste is bitter with some saltiness. Thanks to Sammy.

dinkle50 (988) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Foamy head on top of a reddish cloudy pour. Lemon aroma. Spicy taste with hints of citrus. Mouth was pretty light. Hints of caramelized banana and brown sugar. Alcohol was hidden really well.

notalush (4872) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bomber - nothing about this resembles a Doppelbock - hazy orange pour - nose is sugar and tropical fruit, some alcohol and some floral hops - medium body - slightly slick in the mouth - flavor begins sugary sweet - tropical notes through the middle - moderate hop bitterness on the tail end, as well as some alcohol heat - seems more like a barleywine, really, but even as that it is fairly simple and a little difficult to enjoy.

Chudwick (2157) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JAN 6, 2013
bomber - pours amber/orange with thin offwhite head. Nose is caramel. flavor adds grapefruit and citrus hops. Moderate to high bitterness with light sweetness. Reminds me more of an Amber than a Doppelbock, but is probably due to the West Coast factor. I was expecting something maltier and sweeter, but this isn’t bad either. the ABV is more noticeable as it warms.
