Pours a clear, straw/gold with a solid white head. Aroma’s of HOPS resinous and piney with some notes of citrus and light breadiness. Off-dry flavors throughout with a bitter finish. Sharp mouthfeel with a bitter, almost astringent finish. Hopsheads will love this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can at home courtesy of adnielsen. I hate you Aaron. Appearance is clear copper with a small white head and great lacing. Old bread, grapefruit, rotted fruit peel, oranges, and caramelly aroma. Taste is caramel, stale malt, somewhat tangy, grapefruit peel, oranges, cereal, metallic, and light citrus with a medium bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. This one is way past its prime.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

On tap at the brewery - gold in color with a minimal head. Not much of a nose but what’s there is floral. Hoppy and dry.
