This week I was fortunate to join other members of the blogosphere to sample some spring offerings coming to Lompoc Brewing over the next few weeks. Special thanks to Lompoc Brewing for hosting this event, and letting #pdxbeergeeks be part of it.

Heaven’s Helles is a golden straw-colored German style pale lager with a floral aroma and a clean, crisp finish. 5.3% ABV
Brewed with an experimental Mexican lager yeast strain. It really come across as light, sweet and crisp. An enjoyable beer. Worth checking out!
1060 EZ Taxation Ale is made with pale malt and corn, using Noble hops in the kettle. It's light straw in color, with a malty nose and a mildly sweet mid-mouthfeel provided by the corn. It has a light, dry, crisp finish. 6% ABV
Cherry Bomb is our Proletariat Red fermented in Maryhill Winery Port barrels with 40 pounds of sour cherries. It has a big cherry aroma with a fruit forward flavor, finishing dry with a touch of oak. 6.2% ABV
Our tribute to the Timber’s Army, Kick Axe is a crisp, easy drinking pale ale that was dry hopped in the fermenter with Cascades, giving off a huge hop aroma. 5.2% ABV
Valley of Hops is a classic NW style IPA with a mild body and tons of hops. Hopped with Centennial, Cascade, Cluster, Meridian, Perle and Crystal hops throughout, it has a huge hop aroma with a spicy finish. This pleasant IPA is deliciously drinkable. 5.8% ABV
Ryeteous Badger is a very spicy, full flavored and intense Belgian style ale. The extreme spiciness comes from the addition of malted rye and a ton of hops. It is full-bodied, yet easy drinking. 5.2% ABV
Stout Out Loud is a mix between a Dry Irish Stout and an Oatmeal Stout. It is pitch black in color with slight hints of coffee, chocolate and roast flavors, and features a creamy mouthfeel. 4.1% ABV
