COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Bark Bite IPA on Steroids! Plain and simple. This one might take a few trees down without trying. It’s 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 don’t worry he’s 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 it’s from Big Wood Brewery.

Lemke10 (767) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 31, 2014
This pours a hazy, amber color with a foamy off-white head. The aroma is filled with bitter citrus. For being an IIPA that taste is rather sweet and is very easy drinking for being 9.8% This is a fairly well rounded beer that is balanced and yet tasty for all the right reasons.

esoxangler (100) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2014
This one doesn’t have it all there. dominated by the maltyness to get it up to double IPA status, but not much hop flavor left. decent, wouldn’t get again, but it was enjoyable and another good minnesota brew.

AWISLguy (1224) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 25, 2014
500ml can from Breeze Thru. Pours a clear orangey copper with a spongey white head leaving nice spots of lace. Aroma has pine and citrus and caramel. Quite grapefruit/spice heavy. Taste is of bitter grapefruit, lemon zest, sweet caramel malt and some spicy pine. Down through the glass the caramel pushes to the front, although never taking over and staying fairly balanced. Medium bodied and a bit sticky, with a touch of alcohol. Finishes bittersweet, in a nice balance between the two. A solid, quite balanced, effort that is not too extreme.

Hazy orange with a foamy head, great lacing and mild carbonation. Aroma of citrus, caramel, grapefruits, toffee and malts. Very citrus and floral hop forward flavor with caramel malts, grapefruits and a resiny aftertaste. Light bodied and mild carbonation. Very subtle flavor but not bad

dresden (823) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Pours a nice golden orange with a soapy head. Aroma is citrusy and pine, lots of hops. Taste is lots of back end hops but heavily malty and boozy. It’s sticky and pretty easy drinking but something is missing.
