COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a full flavored IPA with a pronounced hoppy finish that is created by adding Amarillo hops at the end of fermentation. This ale, the only ale in our lineup at the present time, will withstand the long voyage to your local bar or refrigerator. With an alcohol by volume of 7.5%, as our friend Polo would say, "Asusta me one time!" (Scare me one time) About the name: Chupahopra is a play on the Tex Mex folk legend Chupacabra. The chupacabras from chupar "to suck" and cabra "goat", literally "goat sucker") is a legendary cryptid rumored to inhabit parts of the Americas. It is associated more recently with sightings of an allegedly unknown animal in Puerto Rico (where these sightings were first reported), Mexico, and the United States, especially in the latter’s Latin American communities. The name comes from the animal’s reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats.

Beerenberger (1428) - Fischer, Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Floral nose with suggestions of lime rise from a clear golden amber pour with a rapidly disapearing one finger white head and abundent laciing. The palate is overall bitter. Floral flavors combine with pine, citrus, and hop bitterness. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, very drinkable but the tastwe is rather one deminishable.

Cavie (3793) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Tap at Bearded Lady. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color. Light carbonation. Aroma is soapy hops, floral and soft. Some lemon notes. Flavor is soapy hops again, floral and soft. Finishes a small bit dry but the decorative soap notes persist. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap - dark orange in color and a light head. Grainy on the first taste but more earthy hop taste after that. Some sweetness. Medium body and medium dry on the finish.

ben4321 (3864) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Spec’s Downtown

Aroma: The aroma is pine and a little citrus, some caramel and slightly buttery malt notes
Appearance: It pours a murky orange color with a small white head and some spotty lace
Flavor: The flavor is malty and a little sweet, some buttery notes, and an okay hop bitterness
Palate: It has an alright mouthfeel, not great, with average carbonation, and a light dry finish
Overall Impression: I wasn’t particularly impressed by this one. It’s an okay beer, but from an IPA perspective, this is much closer to the bottom of the style than the top.

lb4lb (2532) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2014
Smell is fruity, lightly perfumy hops with some faint grain sweetness as it sits. Smell is pleasant, but just a bit subtle. Taste is lightly hoppy with some cereal grain maltiness showing up. Light to moderate bitterness. Tastes nice, and is pretty mildly hopped compared to a lot of today’s IPAs. Nice full body and crisp carbonation. Very drinkable and a decent beer, but not a hop assault.

degbert (1105) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2014
Can. Pours a very dark amber with a high, soft, fine-grained, cream-buff head. Nose is lime, floral perfume, and sandalwood. Dry on the front of the tongue, with the lime note remaining; there is still a perfumed edge to it that’s kind of nice and different, though it takes some getting used to. Caramel sweetness on the finish. Good.

Clear, light copper with very little head. Nose is light citrus. Bitter. Middle is oily butterscotch with some herbal overtones. Finish is spicy citrus hops. decent.

sjohnny (368) - - JAN 26, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Light citrus and pine aroma. Pours crystal clear light amber with a foamy white head that leaves tons of lacing. Light to medium bodied. Nicely balanced hops. Clean finish. This is actually a pretty good beer.
