COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

16 oz can poured a hazy orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of bread, earthiness, grapefruit zest, floral notes, melon and light pine. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, grapefruit, earthiness and light pine with a smooth dry moderatly bitter lingering grapefruit finish.

This one is a flip flop for me, one sneiff and one sip is nice and herbal/piney, dry. On the other hand other whiffs and quaffs are salty putrid garbage.

Pour on tap at APN 2013, hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma was very sweet orange, and grapefruit notes, hints of spice, lots of caramel, toffee, slight grassy notes in there as well. Taste is a mix of orange, grapefruit, sweet caramel, toffee, hints of grass, slight earth, finishing fairly bitter. Ok.

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

16 oz. can shared by drsordr. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel and toasted malts with citrus, grapefruit, and dank hops. Subsequent drinks show some spicy and resiny hops. The finish gets soft and the hops sem a touch faded. I would not think it was 10%.

Split a pounder with one of my co-workers, who brought this from Minnesota. Thanks! Poured a clear, dark orange color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was herbal hops, bitterness, plenty of resin. Flavor had plenty of hops, malts, nice balance. Not overly boozy for nearly 10%. This was dangerously good.

wlajwl (3814) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Aroma is citrus, sugar, spices and a hint of tea. The flavor is citrus, biscuit malts, slight heat and a mix of alcohol, sugar and tangy in the finish.

Can. Pours a copper color with white head. Piney, grassy, hoppy aromas. Kind of a hop bomb, not a lot of balance.

DalzAle (1976) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2013
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.
