Bursting with floral and orange flavors, El Torero is a bullfighter among Northwest IPAs. This beer won’t step out of your way. It wants you to enjoy it.

v1rgil (151) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 Aroma is cascadian hops and slight caramel sweetness. First is creamy and hoppy. Chinook hops? Aftertaste is slightly oil-slick. Hop flavour stays with you.

blutt59 (6266) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 28, 2012
bottled, clear golden color with white foam head, didnt really detect much hops for an IPA, mostly a bitter cardboard flavor with some caramel notes

maekchu (2836) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2012
Bomber shared with Red -- a "porch beer" in PDX. Sweetish, grassy, mown hay aroma. A real beauty: orange-gold, with a small creamy white head, Subdued deep bitter initial; dirty hop mid palate. Thin-medium body. Pleasant, dark-toned hops provide the most enjoyable component.

AmEricanbrew (6446) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Chill hazed light amber color with ivory sheen. grassy, mild skunk, peppery, dry herbal aromas. medium body. Grassy, sry spicy hop flavors with a dusty bready pale malt base--drying finish--not too bad.

fiulijn (16658) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2012
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy light amber color, with creamy head. The aroma is quite anonymous for an IPA. The body is quite strong, the mouthfeel is smooth, but the flavor is stale, some malt and old wet cereals; it has a strong bitterness level, but no real hop qualities.

Lagerboy (1606) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
Cloudy orange yellow, frothy off white head settles and lasts. Light sweet malts and piney floral hoppy aroma and taste, some citrus fruit. Weighty and full flavored. Average carbonation, medium bodied, medium hopped. Long bitter hoppy finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2012
On tap. Nice deep copper IPA with thin but creamy head. Lace all down the glass. Nice biting bitterness with enough resin, pine and citrus to satisfy any West Coast IPA lover. Just enough malt to back it up. Well done.

mcberko (10071) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2012
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium off-white head. Nose if full of buttery, floral hops, with some dry earthy notes. Flavour is the same, with dry, bitter, earthy hops, a subtle floral kick and just enough malt to back, though still quite unbalanced is it has a noticeable astringency. Decent, middle-of-the-road IPA.
