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.

Mild indiscernable aroma. Pours clear golden, moderate carbonation. A little bit of a sour off taste, with little hop flavor and overall watery. Really doesn’t taste much like an ipa, kind of disappointing considering I really like the name.

From a can. A decent example, everything you expect and nothing crazy, just a solid hop driven beer.

12 oz can. Canned 08/04/16. (Spec’s) Austin, TX.
Clear golden color with a big foamy white head. Citrusy and floral hops, cookies, malt, mild bitterness and some sweetness in the aroma. Not bad. The flavor is resiny and citrusy hops, moderate bitterness, dryness, malt and some sweetness. Quite balanced.

Scopey’s grand vertical. Thanks to Leighton for this one. Clear gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, reasonable fine carbonation. Fluffy malts, some creamy sweetness. Nice floral citrus. Trace of tropical fruits. Light finish leaves a very modest bitter linger. Decent.

Scopey (14736) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Can in Croydonia. Thanks to Leighton. It pours clear pale yellow with a thick white head. The aroma is fresh, sweet, sugared lemons, lychee, sherbet and dull grapefruit. The taste is crisp, bitter, lemony sherbet, soap, grapefruit, floral, white spice, alcohol and white bread with a dry, soapy finish. Light - medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. OK I suppose, but a bit soapy.

Poured golden from can with a small head. Not as bitter as most IPAs that I have had. 7.5% helps as the kids are hollering and fighting with each other. It is beer and it is Friday. Enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
