Our Bark Bite IPA on Steroids! Plain and simple. This one might take a few trees down without trying. Itís the one all the lady axes think they can change. He might be a tough guy in the flannel shirt who tears of bottle caps with his teeth, but donít worry heís easy to get along with. Brewed with a mix of Columbus and Centennial hops, it pours pale amber and goes down surprisingly easy. Well, maybe not so surprising, considering itís from Big Wood Brewery.

Can thanks to khoffman43! Clear medium orange pour, thick foamy head and an aroma of bitter, herbal, resiny hops. Flavor is dry cedar, mild hops, plenty of malt to help balance the alcohol. Hops arenít as pronounced as Iíd like for a DIPA, but still not too bad. Decent beer, but I probably wonít pick it up in the future since thereís plenty cheaper (and better) options.

Tap. Minimal aroma. Initial taste is murky, middle is well hopped, and finishes with slight sweetness and maltiness.

Trev (1935) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Can: orange gold pour with a thick creamy off white head. Aroma is caramel, candied orange. Light pine. Flavour is somewhat medicinal straight off the bat. Pithy and piney bitterness. Light to medium perhaps bready caramel malt backbone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is a tangerine, citrus, sweet, and sugary scent. Taste is a resiny piney flavor up front, orange, grapefruit, and a nice citrus blast follow. The malt is hidden back there too, nice sweet aftertaste. Very solid imperial/double!!

16oz can. Pours a clear, light copper with a little white head. Decent tracing. Surprised this is 10% abv. Nice bitter hops, pretty well balanced. Keeps tasting better with the more I drink.

portableparty (1911) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2013
16 oz. can. Pours bright orange and clear with a big white sudsy head that settles to a film and sticky lacing. Aroma is rather null with grainy malts and subtle dry hops that are earthy and slightly floral and a lingering sweetness. Taste is sweet gritty sugars of warming booze and somewhat resinous dry hops which is bitter and drying. Palate is medium gritty and finishes with warming booze and dry.

Aroma * If you were to squeeze a whole grapefruit into a pint glass and call it beer, this would be that beer. Awesome squared. App. * Extreme lacing and sticky looking. Mellow, creamy head. Taste * Slightly bitter with minimal bite. Delicious sipped or enjoyed quickly, this beer is great. Palate * Well balanced and not over the top. Canít wait to bring 1 to the disc golf course soon. Overall * This beer is great. (I am slightly biased as I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, MN)

Sample bottle pour at the Four Firkins. Big IPA that is missing a bit of the aromas - but still a respectable entry by this new brewer.

Tap at Winterfest 2013. Nice double IPA - full flavored with solid balance. I enjoyed this one.

Had this at the 2013 Beer Dabbler in Saint Paul. This beer had lots of bitter notes and a very bitter back end. No aromatics were smelled (could have been the cold weather).
