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.

Pours a slightly hazy orange gold color with off-white head. Grass, malts, and citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Nothing really outstanding about this, pretty much an average IPA at best.

Pours a hazy orange body with some yeast floaters abound. Decent head and lace, aromas and flavors gravitate towards the biscut and nutty malts with the citrus and piney hops coming around in the middle and having a slightly bitter finish. Decent balance but its a bit malt forward, not bad overall, the name and label are both kinda cool.

AirForceHops (4518) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Draft at the source with the glass in my hand. Clear gold color, low carbonation level. Aroma is very faint; weak citrus. Flavor isn’t bad because there is not much here. Straw and grain body with a good amount of bitterness. However the bitterness doesn’t come from any real hop. It’s just bitterness without the hop punch. Maybe I am soiled from New England imperial IPA. But I don’t think so, just lacking. Not undrinkable just real bland.

Clear golden brew with small head and bits of something floating around in it. Hope that those are just yeast flecks and not something nasty. Aroma is and flavor is a strong floral hop. Good stuff and at a reasonable price. Too bad it can only be found in the CAN.

Grucci (8) - Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2015 does not count
Strong grapefruit taste with bold hoppiness balance well. Not much of a lingering hop taste so you can drink a few. Good beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can. Deep gold with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of pine, herbal hops, resin, and earth. Taste is of caramel, toast, pine, herbal hops, and some citrus.

Bottle from the cooler at Garrison Brothers Distillery. Light pour with a big white head. Aroma is citrus, caramel, earth, and sap. Taste is lots of sap, watery, carbonation, and caramel. Thin.

Tap at brewery. Copper pour, lacy white head. Aroma is citrus, grassy, lots of toasted malts. Taste is pine, citrus, soapy and bitter. Mild sweetness, but a bit overly bitter. Medium body, high carbonation. Ehh.

Tejas (928) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2015 This is a pleasant enough IPA but it’s certainly nothing special and not something I would buy again. It’s lacking flavor. Just seems weak. Crap, now what am I going to do with the other 5 from the sixer?
