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.

Normally I'm not a big IPA person, they tend to be too citrusy for my liking. I've a couple of Anchor beers and really enjoyed them so I got a mix pack and this is one of them in the pack. I have to say I enjoyed this IPA way better than any other I had be fore. When I first cracked the bottle open you get a nice hefty aroma of malt and hops that isn't off pungent the way most IPA's are. The liquid was dark yellowish amber color, the taste was a nice citrus with a hint of Banana, creamy on the tongue. Had a nice lingering pine aftertaste that was refreshing. THis is one IPA that I will continue to get on rotation.
Salute

A 12oz can with a BB of Jan 2019. Purchased recently from ASDA. Label features a hairy elephant.

A: Poured into an IPA glass. Appears to be can conditioned. A deep, hazy amber colour with plentiful carbonation and fine suspended sediment. Produces a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of spicy, grassy hops with hints of herbs, grass/hay, leafiness, stewed hops, earthy yeast, mild caramel malt and a touch of solvent in the background. Pretty good, though the hop profile is unusual for a US-brewed IPA.

T: Tastes of grassy aromatic hops with notes of herbs, spice, grass/hay, leafiness, stewed hops, earthy yeast, esters, vague caramel malt and a resinous quality in the background. Quite dry, followed by a robust hop-driven bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with spritzy carbonation and good body. Hop oils tickle the palate. Aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops, grass/herbs, subtle resin, earthy yeast and faint malt.

O: A pretty good IPA, even if the hop character is unusual. Looks great, while the aroma and flavour are grassy, spicy and herbal with yeasty undertones. Underpinned by subtle malt. Nice body. The hops come across as noble or old world varieties used in high quantity, which is surprising but interesting. Goes down readily enough - worth sampling.

Pours a pale amber with orange hues and an ample off-white head.

Citrus, floral and tropical fruit in the nose with bready malt in the background.

Bitter citrus and pine flowing to some mild stone fruit (not sweet) with hits of bread malt. Finishes dry.

From Decervecitas. In Teku glass. Playing Verde Station. Typical west coast ipa, with noticeable piney flavors. Not too bad but Im getting a bit bored of this. Pretty smooth
