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.

Very solid IPA. Well balanced in malt and hop bittering. Aroma is floral and grapefruit pine. Agave nectar adds just the perfect amount of sweetness to round it off. Superb

MadRobin (2392) - Silver Spring, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Clear amber with a 3-finger cream colored head and very good lacing. Aroma of citrus and pineapple. Taste of citrus, floral hops, pineapple and a somewhat fruity flavor I'm guessing is from the agave. Bitter and fruity with a little well-buried malt. Medium/light body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!
