Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep amber color with a huge billowy head of just off white foam. The head holds on with quite some persistence, slowly fading to leave a nice level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of strong of a citrus grapefruit smell along with it having a little bit of an orange and tangerine smell as well. These aromas are by far the most potent, but are joined by some lighter smells of a floral and grassy nature as well.

Taste – The taste begins with a drier citrus and lightly bready flavor mixed with a little bit of a fruit taste of tangerine, orange, and pineapple. As the taste advances, the sweetness fades a bit, all while the bitterness gets even greater with more grapefruit and some floral and light earthy flavors coming to the tongue. Right at the end, a little bit of a grassy flavor comes to the tongue as well, leaving a rather bitter, but still smooth flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the style the mouthfeel is very nice, as it balances well the fruit and bitter hop flavors.

Overall – A rather tasty and crisper IPA with a good level of fruity citrus hop flavor as well as just enough other bitter hops to keep a big IPA flavor all throughout the taste.

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.
