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.

Wonderful golden haze. Hops forward, citrus, pine, resin. Flowery notes. Creamy white lacey head lingers. This one is certainly one of my favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy honey gold with tall frothy head, attractive. Rich dark fruit and spicy malt aroma. Taste- sweet fruity malt balanced by floral earthy hops with a bit of pine. On the sweet side... Lots of sticky sweet malt. Still has pleasant flavors and fairly well balanced. Alcohol hidden pretty well. Nice 2IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange cloudy pour with white head. Fruity and vanilla grapefruit flavor. Hides the alcohol well. Smooth. Citrus orange notes too. Good stuff. Thanks to my pal Chad

Pint can. Poured cloudy medium golden with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up sharper fruit skins first and foremost, with alcohol and medicinal hops also present.. didnít smell very enjoyable. The flavor found similar stuff.. pale and caramel sweet malts at the core, with sharp fruit skins, peppery alcohol, and raw bitterness laced throughout.. some nice, fruity hop character joined at the end, but overall it was very medicinal. Medium-bodied with fairly filling carbonation.. spicy and sharp.. I donít need another.

Smells earthy and piney. Head was frothy with a creamy white foam. The pour was clear and golden. The taste was a little heavy on the sweetness, medium bitterness, long finish,

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 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.
