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.

Pours slightly oily copper with a large off-white yellowish head. Smells AND tastes like an IPA gone bad. I canít say Iím too fond of this one, but Iím not dumping it.

phaleslu (5863) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2012
22 oz. bottle from the brewery. Pours a clear amber with a medium-sized off-white head. The aroma was all right- chocolate and biscuit malts, nuts, earth. The flavor brought those out more, with some caramel and molasses in the mix. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Solid beer. Interesting choice for an anniversary beer.

kidmartinek (3299) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2012
This beer is really good. Its a full dark pale color with a pure white head. The aroma is full and balanced trending a little on the malty side but not sweet. Thatís the key. Its very full flavored and balanced with a long bitterness being dominant. Its like a strong Bock thatís got decent bitterness. Awesome.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2012
A good bit of caramel, toasted malt, and not much bitterness or hop flavor - true to the style, though itís not my favorite style. However, it hides the alcohol well - thereís no hint of the 9% in there. That makes it excellent in my book.

legion242 (2099) - Richardson, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Poured a pale golden colour with a thin and wispy head. Nose was bready, but not in a great way. Some spicy elements across the palate had me reminding me of a Trippel.

djd07 (2912) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with large frothy off white head lasting awhile. The aroma is a bready malt with rye and toast. Thick mouthfeel with a sweet caramel malt and toast with nice crisp finish. Easy to drink a decent doppelbock from Full Sail.

rougeau13 (1863) - Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle. Clear amber with a little beige head. Aroma of semi-sweet pale malt, citrus, and grass. Sweet, toasty, really malty flavor with a fair amount of hop bitterness; like a sweet, toasty pale ale. Medium bodied, sticky. Decent.
