Pako's Eye-P-A
(Snake River Brewing Company)

Snake River Brewing Company has just put out two of their beers in cans. Both their Pako's EyePA and their Snake River Pale Ale are in aluminum and on shelves wherever their beers are being distributed. We were pretty excited to get some of these in the mail and beyond excited after we cracked open our first Pako's! Cheers Chris! 

From the Snake River Brewing site:

"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."

Here we go...


Pour - a beautiful golden orange color that's quite clear and produces about an inch of white foamy head that leaves some nice lacing. 


Aroma - before you even bring this beer to your nose you'll be smelling two things; grapefruit and pineapple. The nose on this beer is heavenly. Loads of big tropical fruit aromas along with the bitter pine and astringency of those simcoe hops. They've got the hop blend down perfect and certainly didn't skimp on those green little monsters.


Taste - bitter, tropical fruit, sweet oranges, loads of grapefruit, resiny and just about perfect. The weight of this beer and the sheer volume of hop flavor along with being nicely balanced and not too astringent is out of this world. It's light on the tongue and not too sweet and those pineapple and grapefruit flavors just keep coming. This is an outstanding IPA.


Overall - hands down one of the best canned IPAs we've had in awhile (or ever). I'd easily put this among the top 5 available in the US. This might be a secret all you folks in Wyoming have been keeping but we're going to get the word out. If you love big, hoppy IPAs than this is one you'll definitely want to get your hands on! 


Would I buy more of it? - no question about it. I would absolutely be buying a six-pack of this beer on many occasions. I'm still shaking my head as to just how good this IPA is, wow. 

Note - Heterochromia iridum is the term used to describe it when a person or animal has two different color irises. This is usually determined by  the concentration and distribution of melanin. Although infrequently seen in humans, complete heterochromia is more frequently observed in other species, where it almost always involves one blue eye. (Wikipedia)
