Poured into a Ringwood Brewery 1/2 pint mug it looks fine. The aroma is a bit thin imo. Taste is quite hoppy but different to me. The mouthfeel is pretty decent. Overall I would say just it's a bit above average.

Look 3.75, Smell 3.25, Taste 3.5, Feel 3.5, Overall 3.5

Bought a single bottle $1.79 Don Quijote
Floral hop smell
Hazy golden orange color
Medium-light mouthfeel
Medium carbonation
Bitter, sour taste
Overall nothing impressive about it. Tastes like Liberty IPA. Lots of better beers at a lower price. Would not buy again.

LOOKS: A slightly hazy, burnt orange, with a finger of off white head that recedes to a thin layer. Nice bit of lacing.
AROMA: Slight astringency, toasted sourdough, citrus, pineapple, and a very mild dank quality.
FLAVOR: Caramel malt and toast, lots of citrus with a good bitter bite that lasts. Slight CP from I'm gonna say....Simcoe. A bit of pineapple, and it also reminds me of weed, a bit.
FEEL: Well carbonated, quite dry, and medium body.
OVERALL: Classic tasting IPA; good brew.
