Last of a six pack I got in Wyoming.

A- Semi hazy pale golden body from the can to a wine glass. One finger white crown with a frothy texture. Good head retention with a thin ring resulting. Sheets and drizzled lacing.

S- Juicy fruit and citrus hops basically even out and lead the aromas strength. Slightly floral with pale malts and bread hints.

T- Zesty grapefruit pith bitterness along with some pine build in strength here to blend with the citrus and tropical fruits. Tangerine, orange, pineapple, floral and mango notes. Slight bread and grainy malts.

MF- Light-medium bodied with a creamy and frothy texture. Carbonation fairly high and a moderately bitter finish.

Pakos strikes a nice balance of hop flavors with an emphasis on stone, citrus and tropical fruits along with other notes to balance it out.

Yet another Can delivered to me by Cam, this one hauled all the way from Wyoming. Thanks Caneron, er, Cameron.

Pours a kinda hazy dark orange with a sudsy off-white head. Grassy, grapefruit/citrus, resiny and spicy hop profile, good dose of caramel malts, some buttered bread, a solid kinda down to earth/old-school feeling IPA. Medium-level bitterness balanced nicely with a decent malt profile, good mouthfeel. Not super remarkable but a good IPA I'd drink anytime.

Impeccable golden body with a very, very thick white head; lots of sticky lacing. Huge floral and pine hop aroma. Smooth hop bitterness riding atop a slight caramel and cereal grain flavor. Medium bodied; crisp and dry finish.

A hop sledgehammer! Well done -- balanced, smooth, robust...
