3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is hop dominated, with resin and mild citrus aromas. Malt is mild, providing some bread/grain aromas.
Color is a light amber, with an averaged sized white head.
Bitterness is moderate to heavy; sweetness is light.
Body is light to medium; finish is average length, with the resin and mild citrus hops dominating the finish.
Overall I liked the fairly clean, crisp texture and finish, though there was a flight touch of skunk aroma. The hops are fairly simple and indistinct for an IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can, thanks Russ! Citrus hop aroma with notes of tropical fruit and slight pine resiny hop aroma. Pours cloudy golden colored with a huge off white head that has excellent retention but poor lacing starts with tropical fruit hop sweetness with mild grapefruit citrus. Finishes dry, but quite smooth with grapefruit citrus coming to the forefront with slight pine resiny bitterness at the very end.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can from I don’t even know when. The pour is a darker golden color, good orange to it, with a thick frothy white head that sticks around for quite a while and leaves some damn solid lacing. The aroma is good. There is a lot of juicy hop to it. No real bitterness, and the malt really comes through about half way and carries it out to the finish. The hops are pretty decent though. The flavor is a little worse. There is a strong metallic aspect to this one. The malts dominate the flavor. There is a little hop resin, and a hint of bitterness on the back end, but it’s just really relaxed and slightly disappointing. The mouth feel is a little thicker and has a creaminess to it. The carbonation is a little softer, and this has a distinct aluminum can finish. It’s not terrible, but it could definitely be a lot better.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can. Pours a medium, well retained, tiny bubbled, ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, amber (SRM 7) body......nose is pine, resin, citrus peel from the hops, light toasted malts with bread, biscuit notes, balance to the hops......taste is slightly floral sweet, with pine, resin, grapefruit notes, light allium, mild toasted malts, becoming dry, finishing with a moderate hop bitterness, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium body, minimal alcohol. low carbonation. This is a pleasant, soft IPA without harsh bitterness, and rather mild malts. It falls well within the style, but is not particularly outstanding. The malts could use a bit of a rework.
