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.

Hop balance is toward the flavor and aroma end of the spectrum, which is a nice to see from this style. I was expecting a resin bomb, nut the bitterness was very smooth. Sweet malt character balanced the hops nicely. A nicely made DIPA.

Pours a dark hazy gold color, tropical fruit on the nose, caramel notes up front with a hoppy finish, very interesting ipa but very tasty

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)

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!!

had it out of a 16oz can. Poured a partly clear amber hue with a creamy yellow head. It has a apricot aroma with strong hop flavor, and a bitter aftertaste.

Can. Pours a hazy orange body with a thick one-inch white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, sugar, and floral hops. Flavor is similar, although rather sweet. Slightly sticky on the palate. Light carbonation. Finishes with a nice hop bitterness. Quite drinkable with no noticeable alcohol burn.

Lots of piney orange citrus. Beautiful orange color. Big caramel malt backbone. Very well blanced. This DIPA is unique and is one of the better ones i have had.

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
