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.

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.

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 (2275) - Richmond, 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.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2012
The pour is a clear, pale copper with an average, off-white, pillowy head which is mostly lasting and leaves minimal lace. The nose is pleasant but subdued with golden raisins, toasty caramel, very bready, and an earthy/spicy note (almost rye-like). The flavor is nice with the rye note, very toasty, some light caramel, very earthy, slightly peppery, and just a touch if the golden raisins. The palate is more than medium, nearly lively, crisp and velvety. The finish is fairly long, crisp and dry with caramel, rye, and earth. Actually a pretty decent light doppel with nice fruit and drying toast and bready notes. The rye and earthy tones were a nice change from the normal doppel style and the increased alcohol kept the usual lager flaws at bay. Better than I expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beautiful amber color of 10,000 year old petrified wood, a lovely hue, and topped with a thinnish head. Honey-tipped malt nose. Smooth body, again with an easy honey pepper and amber malt body. This one tastes young and fresh, but could gain a lot more desirable depth with aging. As it is, this is a vibrant, crisp doppel, that I expect will mellow nicely in the bottle.

boFNjackson (4192) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Tap @ The Horse Brass... A darkish red pour with a thin, white-ish head. Notable sweetness up front. Husky grains, dark fruits and sugars. Some notes of cherries and vanilla with worty malt notes. Noticeable alcohol towards the finish. Thick mouthfeel and didn’t let up from start to finish.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Pours a decent amber with a slightly lively body and a nice white head. Aroma is straw, grass, and a whisper of fruit dough. Not much going on there. Flavor is hoppy strawberry biscuit with a finish of grassy buttered toast and orange peel. Not bad, but the ’dopplebock’ aspect really doesn’t do anything but stand silent in the corner. Oily mouthfeel, like Walt. A decent IPA, but not much of a dopplebock.
