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.

Pours brownish-orange with a decent sized off white head. Smells citrusy and slightly sweet. Tastes- Hoppier than I was expecting. I saw doppelbock and my mind went to Korbinian but this beer is much more bitter. More hops and citrus than anything else. That being said, once I got over my expectations I enjoyed this beer. The bitterness is not over whelming by any means and the citrus notes are pleasant. MF-Medium body and slightly carbonated. Overall- Not what I think of when I think doppelbock but a pleasant beer nonetheless.

Quite nice although it does not say anything about the 25th anniversary but of a Recipe #4. Nice aroma and creamy features and taste.

hotstuff (4424) - Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Rated on 4-13-2013 (Bottle) This beer’s appearance is a small smooth off-white head that is mostly lasting, orange transparent body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, bready, some toffee, pine hops, and earthy. The flavor is lightly bitter, pine hops, toffee, bready, and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. A quaffable beer with a lingering bitter aftertaste. It is a sipping beer. A Dopplebock? Really? Hmmm.

bott;e @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy dark caramel amber, head that drops to the rim, light streaks of lace. Nice aroma of caramel and malt. Taste is malt that adds sweet caramel and bread in the palate, then turns to alcohol, with even a hint of bourbon in the end. The lingering finish shows the caramel hasn’t left yet.

timjbaer (24) - pahrump, Nevada, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Dark copper color with a nice toast smell and malty notes. White foam with nice lacing and fair retention. Light carbonation and smooth mouth feel. Tastes of baked crackers and light bitterness in the back. The bitterness sits in the after taste for about 3 to 4 minutes and on the toung for longer. Some hopps balanced by sweetness.

Sampled on 3/13/14. This dopplebock pours a light to medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Large to medium sized white foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is malty, sweet and bready. A medium to light bodied dopplebock. The malts are bready, caramel and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. Nice malty and bready dopplebock, dark fruit and some brown sugar. A touch boozy and perhaps a touch of oxidation. Very drinkable. Aroma is sweeter than the taste. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

AirForceHops (4802) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 2, 2014
22 oz. bottle. Orange color with thin head without retention. Aroma is layers of dried fruits and caramel. Flavor has lots of dark fruit sweetness with dates, raisins and prune notes. Has a light herbal bitterness toward the bad end. Medium and full-bodied with no carbonation on the tongue. The palate displays sugar with a mildly syrupy texture. Decent.

Fatehunter (1754) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Pours a finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body. The aroma has a rich caramel malt aroma mixed with lemon and pine. The taste starts with caramel sweetness, then some moderate pine and lemon bitterness comes through, finishes with the caramel sweet again. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. It’s a hoppier and less sweet doppelbock. I enjoyed it.

mbgrayson (638) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Pours a clear dark golden color, with a white head. Aroma of mixed hops and malt. Taste is slightly more hops, but the malt is there too. Fairly smooth and drinkable. The relatively high alcohol is not apparent. Thumbs up.

Pours amber with thin creamy head. Sharp malty aroma with some hops bitterness in the Taste. Big malt finish. Very well done, one of my favorite styles.
