Pako's IPAPako's IPA
Notes: Named for Pako (say “PACO”) the dog (No wait, Pako’s not a dog!) This full flavored, fully hop-evident IPA will have the hopheads rejoicing. 6.8% ABV and 60+ IBUs with explosive hop aroma from a pungent Simcoe/columbus blend.

I got this beer from Bitterbill. Thanks Bill!

12oz can served in a standard pint glass.

L - clear copper color with a off-white head that left a heavy coat of lacing on the glass.

S - tropical citrus fruit aroma.

T - very hoppy bite upfront balanced by just the right amount of malt finishing dry and bitter.

F - medium bodied with a smooth level of carbonation.

O - a pretty darn good IPA

Served on-tap at Snake River Brewing (Jackson Hole, WY). Reviewed from notes.

A: Slightly hazy pale yellow, touch of amber, with a healthy 1/2-1 finger of off-white, frothy head with good retention and a nice line of crusty lace.

S: Big hops aromas of passionfruit, pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and orange with a little pine thrown in for good measure. Malt aromas are minimal. Yeast is not present.

T: A really nice mix of tropical fruitiness from the hops with a malt backbone with solid heft but not a lot of sweetness. Maltiness is mainly an impression as there is only a touch of bready caramel flavor. The hops are the focus with passionfruit, mango, grapefruit, pineapple, and a little lemon in there too. The flavor is good but not quite as explosive as the aroma. No yeast or alcohol character to speak of. A really solid-to-spectacular American IPA.

M: Crisp and moderately dry without astringency or mineral character. The body is a touch below medium with a tad too much carbonation which dissipates as it warms.

O: Another winner from Snake River - they have really nailed this style and I have yet to hit a style that they did not do well. Another top-notch job on this beer and highly recommended.

Canned 10/5/15. Served cold into a shaker pint glass.

Pako is a hazy golden orange color with thick white head that leaves great lacing as it settles.

Aroma is hoppy and fresh with great west coast citrus and pine.

Flavor is equally enjoyable with fantastic hop taste and bitterness. Grapefruit, orange zest, and dank character all comes through. Good variety of hop notes.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated.

Overall a fantastic IPA and worth the drive to Wyoming.

June 2018....pours medium dark copper. Some foam. Light malty nose, but faint. Medium bitter, some pine, and then hop bitter oils. Smooth, with a residual bitter. Real tasty.
