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.

Another spot on brew from Snake River. The perfect amount of citrus and pine in nose and on the tastebuds. Golden orange in appearance with a huge frothy foamy head that laces the glass. A solid offering from Snake River

Can from Boise Co-op. Piney, citrusy hops in both aroma and taste. Medium gold body with small tight head. Grapefruit finish, tangy and slightly dry. Crisp, clean IPA.
