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.

larryLSB (417) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Poured from a can while sitting at the Cowboy Bar in Jackson. Tried to get on draft at the Brewpub, but they were out, go figure. Their flagship beer and they did not have it the two times we were in there. Light golden, with medium off white head, with a mild piney nose and just a hint of citrus. On the bitter side, not as well balanced as I expected, given all I had heard about Pako’s. Drinkable with a nice aftertaste however.

Beerman6686 (4239) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2011
This poured a semi cloudy dark yellow to orange color with a beige head. Aroma was nice amounts of fruity citrusy hops with light biscuty malts there too. Finally an IPA’s taste lives up to its aroma, nice bitter fruit and light pine balanced slightly by sweeter biscuty caramel mlat. Very refreshing.

BrewDad (4844) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2011
Draft at Brewery - Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice hops aroma and flavors. Floral with a light fruit in the finish. Good malt build this was very tasty.

osu97gp (647) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Poured a clear orange color with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops with some malts in the background. Flavor of floral hops with a nice bitter finish and a decent malt backbone. A pretty good beer made better by the environment.

scooterbub (815) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAY 1, 2011
On tap at Lander Bar. Pours a golden-copper color with a tan head that lasts. Taste is of fruit, hops, citrus, pine and some malt. Similar aroma. Has an oily body and a good amount of bitterness to it. The alcohol is hidden well. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

pinkzambia (1436) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Tap: Clear yellow-gold color. White fizzy head with spotty lacing. Aroma of lots of hops, citrus, grapefruit rind, and inside of a box. Bitter grapey taste. Pretty thin and watery for an IPA.

3fourths (7888) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2010
draft. clear honey colored body. resinous pine sap and orange oil flavor with an aroma that’s pretty much the same. mostly pale malt but it seems to have a resinous/chewy/caramel character, and with the high alcohol it seems to be just too bulky and full for the style.
