12oz can given to me by @mr-jj. Canned on 02/24/17 (I think -- the month is stretched on the rim on the bottom).

Pours hazy light amber with a medium head and lots of carbonation. Nice looking beer. Smell is tropical juice and yeast.

Taste is very citrus, moderate tropical, and medium bitter finish. Interesting, tasty beer.

Mouthfeel is thick but not sticky. Overall, nice beer.

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

Slightly hazed gold beer with a fat head - smells of pale citrus and floral notes - taste brings mellow fruits and clean grains - a medium-light body and soft feel with ample carbonation - smooth and plush, very enjoyable, very drinkable.

Poured a bright golden color, with a decent cap of bubbly off-white foam. Aromas of floral hops, somewhat grassy, bubblegum and biscuit. On the palate, this one was light to medium bodied, with flavors of good hops, as well as some pears, peaches and biscuit malt.

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.

On tap at Snake River Brewery

AP: Hazy pale golden orange with two fingers of off white head.

AR: Huge pine notes up front with a slight citrus sweetness following.

TS: Good hop bitterness upfront. This is a very balanced IPA with a malt backbone that supports a fresh citrus hoppiness. The star of this show are the pine hop notes.

MF: Above average mouthfeel.

OV: This is a enjoyable IPA, very balanced and drinkable yet with great hop flavors.
