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.

16oz draft 1/21/15 (Sheraton Norfolk)-Poured an amber with a small head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and went down quite smooth.

Theres a lot of pineapple, citrus, and some grassiness in the aroma. Lots of flavor. The agave is definitely doing something here. It’s very very smooth and is actually pretty bitter. Overall a fine ipa I would love to get on draft and see the difference. Cheers!

On draft at O’Connor Brewing. Pours a hazy orange-yellow with a white head. Nose is sweet citrus, some red grapefruit, some oranges, and some agave with promise of a bit more. Flavor is similar- citrus, caramel, and a bit of agave in the background and it lingers into the finish. Medium in body and a nice IPA overall. Note: I tried both the draft and bottled version from the brewery and the draft version is significantly more pronounced in the agave flavor and nose.
