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.

onceblind (10861) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Hazy copper pour with a thin-ish foamy head. Lovely imperial lager aroma of buttered biscuit, pale sweet cereal grains, some honey, and lightly golden toast. Great full flavor with a big palate. Toast and honey mix with booze-yeasty esters alongside some doughy biscuit and a certain light fruitiness like pear or something perhaps more tropical.

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.

Fatehunter (2640) - 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.

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
