4.29/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pint can - canned 9/9/20 (allegedly) - poured into a teku at 40°F. Generously given to me by jrc1093.

Pours a fully hazy apricot orange hue, topped with two fingers of dense off-white head with good retention, leaving lacing as it recedes.

Nose: Unwordly hop saturation. The clean malt bill shines through - pale and lightly grainy, and then just a monstrous presence of ripe mango, kiwifruit, white grape, papaya, pink grapefruit, topped by fresh cut grass and green fruit rind, giving it a big raw, vegetal vibe. The yeast is very unique and expressive, lending a distinct bubblegum note. Would almost think there's some Nelson in here. What an aroma.

Palate: So there's definitely Nelson in here. The malt base is fantastic - simple, clean, and not trying too hard, lending equal parts clean grain and just a touch of malt sweetness. Big dry-hopped notes of pineapple, orange, white grape, papaya, tropical melon, kiwi, and a little rainbow sherbet hint - perhaps a hint of lime. A subtle berry note emerges, before everything shifts slightly green, and a restrained grassiness emerges, providing some gentle drying bitterness, along with a touch of grapefruit pith. Clean, oily finish - dry, with a touch of grass and melon rind. As it opens, it takes on a really dank overripe quality, with a hint of jackfruit and pepper.

Mouthfeel/Body: In classic NEIPA fashion, the beer is soft, plush, and a bit creamy. Interestingly enough, given the nature and the ABV, it actually retains an impressive crisp fluidity, never fighting back as it goes down. Effervescence is on the lower side, but it's actually quite coarse, which makes up for that. Finushes clean and dry.

Overall: A really nice display of balance here. Double IPA flavour, with single IPA drinkability. The fine line between plush creamy feel and crisp drinkability is fantastic, and the aroma is really quite wonderful. Whatever hops they've selected deliver an atypical flavour profile, and the entire thing just sings in its cohesion.

16oz. can served in a tulip. Pours akin to the color and clarity of orange juice. Head quickly disperses into a soapy slick. Nose is subtle - some notes of citrus and pith, as well as a hint of tropical aromas. Taste consistent with nose; however, flavors are more prominent than suggested by the nose. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body (closer to light) with a mild acidity and a mild, even carbonation. Overall, a drinkable DIPA with a well-hidden abv.

Had on tap at the brewery side-by-side DDH The Other One. A nice, bracingly hoppy NEIPA that reminds me a lot of the Vermont classics, especially Focal Banger and Cloud Drop, as well as the IPAs put out by Brick & Feather Brewery in MA. Lots of dank, pithy citrus melds with a pleasant honey-bread pale malt backbone and a fine effervescent carbonation. Quite intense and lasting bitterness

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

L - thick, cloudy, yeasty haze. Looks like the bottom of the keg, but that's what all TB DIPAs look like so I'm not (too) worried. Fine mist of a head with some nice sticky lacing.

S - tropical and grainy. Mixed berries, ripe mango, papaya-infused white bread, and sweet orange honey. White grapes toward the end.

T - green and underripe fruits. Fresh, zesty, and herbal. Pink grapefruit pith, pineapple rind, and a breeze of bubblegum. Juicy dank starts to manifest in the middle with gritty mango, but is quickly washed away with a cooling menthol grassiness as the beer settles and the flavor begins to bloom.

F - soft and fluffy accompanied by acidic meal... there's the keg dreg. Supple yet focused in its zest.

O - delicate yet robust, there's a lot going on here. Like drinking through the seasons, we've got something for everybody from dank fruit, vegetalia, and earthy, refreshing bitterness.

16 oz can from the brewery - drank about a week later.

hazy, opaque medium yellow color, thick bright white head. very nice aroma - huge fruity flavors - melon, peach, citrus. similar flavor, only mild bitterness. a touch of malt. softer mouthfeel, drinks well.

for whatever reason seems much better than the glass I had on draft at the brewery.

On-tap at the brewery

Pours a turbid, hazy yellowish-orange with a short but consistent white head and nice bits of lacing left behind.

So raw on the nose; I'm getting some dank mango and bitter hops with undertones of moist, freshly-cut grass.

Wow, this tastes like fresh hops were soaked in overripe mango juice. There's something distinctly earthy and vegetal, too, carrying waves of moss and wilted mint. It's incredibly evocative and maintains a beautiful balance while allowing it's signature unfiltered bitterness to fade gracefully among juicy citrus overtones.

Feels so soft you almost miss it. A natural drinker that cuts just the right amount of booze from the taste; the juicy, resinous finish and relatively low carbonation suits this one, and it's incredibly clean.

This is something else. Powerful without being boozy and so evocative and consistent in its profile throughout. It's dank and mossy with a tropical approachability, (and without trying to sound too hyperbolic) reminding of fresh air and raw earth. If that sounds different, it's because it certainly is, but it's these qualities that in large part make this one pretty special.

The beer pours a hazy yellow with a medium white head. It has low carbonation. The beer smells of spearmint, grapefruit, grass, and a little earthy. It tastes of spearmint, grapefruit, candy, grass, and a little earthy. The beer is medium light. This is a pretty good IPA from Tilted barn.

4.5s across the board for an amazing DIPA, juicy but not too sweet, dry finish but not overly bitter, soft mouth feel but not unnatural. This is better than most NE DIPAs.

16 oz can undated purchased at the brewery. Hazy orange color and hoppy/citrusy nose. Flavors are mostly citrus rind such as grapefruit, orange and lemon with a hint of mango. Creamy and smooth without being overly bitter from the hops and no heat from the alcohol. Our favorite Tilted Barn beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

16 oz can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy yellow orange hue with slight vision of bubbles. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Orange, citrus, pine, and spruce hop flavor followed by pale, wheat, and caramel malts.

Taste: Nice and lasting hop flavor that rolls through the palate. Malt bill backs things up with some light bitterness and slight chewy notes on the palate too.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, rolling hop flavor, smooth, light bitterness, mostly balanced, and delicious.

Overall: Got to admit that this beer has grown on me for two weeks now. Delicious, tasty, and I look forward to the next beer from these guys.

Simply put, this is the very best DIPA I've had the pleasure of trying. It's just.....perfect. Beautiful, hazy, lacy, in the glass, smell is a tropical citrus bounty. Tastes like heaven. Feel is tingly and perfectly smooth. Just so well done. Bravo Tilted barn.

16oz can dated 7/27/17.

Pours cloudy gold with a two inch head of dense white. Nice retention with decent lacework. Aromatics are chock full of tropical fruit. White grapes, peach, mango, apricot, and juicy fruit gum. Medium bodied with a soft, velvety mouthfeel. The palate bursts with ripe, fuzzy citrus. Grapes, peach, pear, grapefruit pith, and orange blossom honey. Zero malt with a firm bitterness and quite dry. Finishes with lingering tropicals.

Great beer. Loads of juicy, ripe fruit and very tasty.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 16 oz can with no discernable date into a tulip glass.

Pours an opaque golden orange color with a finger of soapy white head. The head settles into a thin sheet that gently covers the beer, leaving a moderate amount of lacing.

The aroma brings plenty of mango notes and grapefruit rind, as well as a touch of melon. Very herbaceous and floral, with a nice caramel malt presence.

The flavor is a straight up cacophony of fruits. There's mangoes, honeydew melon, candied orange, grapefruit rind, and plenty of caramel malt. The finish is subtly piney with a touch of spiciness. A little on the sweet side, but never cloying.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Creamy and smooth as hell, with just enough dryness to keep your face in the glass. Fluffy, pillowy, soft. Whatever adjective you can use to describe the feel on a NEIPA is here.

Overall, this is one hell of a DIPA. It's no wonder this brewery has exploded in popularity. It's got plenty of malt presence, which I like, but could use some more bitterness. Still, an outstanding beer. Can't wait to try more from this brewery.

So I thought Chosen One was basically a perfect beer (perhaps a tad yeasty but that's nitpicking)....and then I had a can of this. Damn, where to begin....perfect hazy tangerine hue with a bright citrus aroma. Taste is mango and citrus with that bubblegum, pillowy mouthfeel. Smooth finish, no lingering yeast. A perfect NEIPA.

This one pours a golden orange with the same glowing neon haze as Peeptoad. Also like Peeptoad, The Other One has a tiny head that leaves a ton of retentive lacing. These guys make gorgeous beers.

The nose brings fantastic notes of cantaloupe, orange, and caramel.

The taste is sweet and intense. Grapefruit rind, orange pulp, and sticky bun malt notes stand out. The finish is floral and juicy. The sweetness is heavy but not overwhelming.

Mouthfeel is medium and the ABV is well-hidden.

Poured 12/3/16 from a 32oz growler that was filled at the brewery the previous day, into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy light yellow color, with a thin white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is a very nice blend of fruity citrus, floral hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with strong sweet flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong floral hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty and provides a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Very crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a very nice 2IPA to drink for a long time.
