COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An aggressively hopped India Pale Ale brewed with the sweet nectar of the Blue Agave cactus, El Guapo, translated "the handsome one," looks sexy, smells beautiful, and feels great! El Guapo has a grassy citrus nose, notes of sweet caramel, and finishing with a smooth but strong bitterness.

The aroma of this beer was delicious. Everything else was quite average, though well done as far as balance and smoothness go. I could drink it again, but I have had more notable IPAs.

stevoj (3839) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Draft at Yard House-Springfield. Medium amber pour with soft creamy head. Gentle floral hoppy aroma, more hoppiness in taste. Pretty smooth throughout, except for a funky metallic finish.

Not a bad beer has some good stuff going on but not a wow beer. Pour is amber with a medium cream color head that laces the glass with tight bubbles. Aroma is earthy and citrus. A crisp dry beer with back notes of herbs.

JDBaker11058 (1896) - Maryland, USA - FEB 6, 2016
appearance: clear gold amber, short creamy white head. aroma: some caramel, toast, and syrup, light citrus, hint of sweat socks. taste: light tropical fruit, a bit of sugary sweetness (agave, I’m guessing), some general toast. finish: dry, slightly slick. notes: Decent IPA. Agave definitely added a different note. Draft at Barrel & Bushel in Tysons Corner, Virginia.

Pours a clear golden orange on tap with dissipating white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma and taste of sweet caramel malt and citrus earthy hop notes. Taste follows, agave just there for alcohol boost. Not bad, but nothing exciting.

Maverick34 (2944) - New York, USA - DEC 15, 2015
Draft from highline. Mediocre yellow orange pour. Lots of citrus notes but kind of flat, maybe end of keg. Tasted like a flat session ipa.

Bottle. Pours a clear Amber with a large head. Smells of sweet citrus, pine, and a bit floral. Taste is a bittersweet medley of orange, grapefruit, pine, green vegetation, and candied sugar. This in yummy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Where and how: bottle 355 ml
Aroma 7+ nice approach to IPA. Hoppy as expected with piney , tad spicy feel. High alpha vibe. Sweeter malts with some drying hint of alcohol.
Appearance :
Top: white, small top.
Base: clear, amber gold
Palate : medium-full with soft consistency. Lighter carbonation, long finish. Easy going .
Taste: mature. Floral hops with sweet malts to balance. I like this somewhat aggressive hop profile. It give unique edge to it.
other notes quiet nice brew.
