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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-amber color with a medium sized creamy orange-tan head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was bitter cactus, fruity hops and was a bit harsh. The flavor was quite bitter followed by tangy pine, cactus and was a bit harsh. Long bitter and tangy pine and cactus finish. Medium body. Ok.

Beergeek23322 (2028) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 21, 2013
August 2011 on tap. Orange color with a white head. Citrus, pine and malty aromas. Smeels nice, but the caramel flavors are a little too much. Hops on the finish.

TheBeerGod (5047) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle. Amber with a short, foamy tan head. Aroma is grassy hops, sweet malt, caramel, and soft citrus. Taste is sweet with candy notes, caramel, sweet malt, citrus, floral notes and grassy hops. Body is medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more floral and grassy hops, soft citrus, sweet malt, candy notes and caramel.

BelgianBeerGal (3016) - Dayton Area, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Draft at Cogans. Better than expected based on some ratings. Light aroma but nice sweet, juicy hops in the flavor. Mild bitterness. Fine.

tia (849) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2012
Tap. Dark golden with nice cream head. Bit of perfume, grapefruit, and biscuit aromas. Light sweetness then the hops kick in. Not overpowering. Bit of pop corn at first sip. Gives the impression of something missing. Nice mouthful and light dry finish.

Foxbush (1219) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2012 This was the Tuesday selected brewer at Capital Ale House in Innsbrook, Glen Allen. The IPA was a clear amber with a small head that laced down the glass. Nice grapefruit and pine on the nose and a pleasant bitterness with each drink. This is a nice IPA with balance. The carbonation was lively and the finish was smooth with hint of bitterness.
