COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Nickls (1916) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Tap. Clear light yellow orange with a nice frothy head that leaves nice curtainy lacing. Very bright grapefruit at first in the aroma, some wild onion and breadiness as well. The wild onion note is less present in the flavor, but still retains nicely aggressive hops with citrus and slight pine. Medium softer body.

I didn’t expect to have an amazing beer from a can, but it was perfect. Golden, with malty, citrus, perfect blend of Columbus and simcoe. The flavor is well balanced. If you find it, try it.

Strykzone (5285) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2012
12 oz. can from Hayduke. A fluffy almost white head fades slowly and leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Light haze in this golden beer looks inviting. The nose offers sweet fruit, yeast, and pale malts. It is sweet and pleasant. First sip is sweet citrus fruit. The beer has some herbal notes, pine, and a bit of grain. However, this beer is built around the hops. It does not try to do too much with them which is to the credit of the brewers. Nicely done.

Beaver (1396) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2012
12 oz can. Pours clear orange copper with a medium pillowy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet tropical fruits and dank hops and some pepper.

The flavor is a little sweet fruit with some dank earthy hops and a big charred lightly metallic bitterness that lingers. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, it could have been a decent dank IPA, but I couldn’t get past overwhelming charred metallic bitterness in the finish.

jcr (2263) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Draft and can. Clear golden body with frothy white head. Raw, leaf hops dominate the aroma. Notes of resin, toasted grain. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Plant taste on top of husky grain. Chewy. Tastes of resin. Little finesse. Not my favorite type of IPA.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2013 11/13: Fruity hop character: apricot, citrus, herbal, pepper. A little earthy. Light malt flavor: sweet, bready.

Sweet, fruity, light bread aroma. Great spicy and fruity hop flavor -- can taste the Columbus hops, for sure. Starts fairly dry, finishing sweeter. Light bready taste in finish and aftertaste. Awesome AIPA... Snake River continues to impress me.
