COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Three Creeks head brewer says the Hodag CDA is 6.4% ABV and pours near black in color, while featuring the generous hopping of an IPA. Munich and Crystal Malt provide a solid Malt backbone while Midnight Wheat and German Caraffa malts stain the beer black in color. Hopped with Bravo, Crystal and Columbus hops, Hodag has a nice piney hop aroma while the flavor balances hints of roast with citrus and mint hop flavors all rounded out by a dry finish.

22 bomber. Reddish black pour with a monster brown head. Roasted malts with a hint of stone fruit hit my nose and tongue. A tinge of hop flavored piney bitterness on the way down. A little sweet, but overall pretty decent.

harrymel (1477) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2013
on tap at the brewery Toasted brown with excellent clarity and some tan film atop. Smells of pine, resin some sap and a little bit of coffee toasted malts. Flavor carries resin, bitterness, a little raisin character in the malt, some BO character, leather and burnt coffee. Medium on thin with moderate carb and a dry finish. Iím finding that the beer is really middle of the road with a little more leather character than others Iíve had.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle:   Dark brown sugar, very dark, moderate frothy sandy head, decent lacing.   Roasty and hoppy nose, slight pasture, a little lactose.   Smooth on the tongue, pale roasted malt bitterness, even softer hop bitterness.   A soft example, but smooth.   Could use some more body, otherwise average.   A bit more pithiness comes out on the finish.   A very moderate yet clean example.   Wished the nose didnít have that slight pasture, but at least it didnít come out on the tongue.

GT2 (8161) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Tap at Three Creeks. Low haze deep brown pour with webby lacing. Nose is roasy, pine sap, savory. On for style. Taste is spicy, bitter, pine sap, roast. On style. Palate is most successful of their beers on tap. Not nearly as papery, harsh.

IrishBoy (3799) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Bomber; another rare beer given to me by bhensonb. Thanks so much Bill! Nose is light pine, citrus, coffee, and a hint of roast. Almost black (I can see through a thinner bottom section of the glass) with a HUGE beige head. Flavor is hints of pine, lemon, and chocolate coated coffee beans.

bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours dark brown with a frothy 3 finger tan head. Aroma is evergreen/resin over a malt that suggests cask. Itís a very fresh aroma. Med body, almost. Flavor is lightly chocolate with a good dose of resin/evergreen and a bit of citrus. Itís bitter, and heading towards being harshly so. Itís very tasty.

Reid (1848) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - FEB 18, 2013
22 oz. bomber from Rothís Vista Market in Salem. $4.69 Pours a dark dark brown almost black with a nice bubbly tan head. Aroma of piney hop and caramel,burnt oats and a bit of coffee. Flavour much the same but more towards the piney/resiny hop way..still some dark caramel coffee in the back. Mouthfeel is quite thin adds to drinkability..lingering bitter coffee. Nice Cascadian here.

Zeswaft (1361) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Bomber. Aroma dominated with stout like characteristics, coffee and roasted malts. Flavor is nicely hoppy. Citrus and pine balanced by roast. Balanced between ipa and stout but the intensity is a bit underwhelming.
