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.

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 (2792) - 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.

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 (2542) - 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
