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

L - thick and turbid, definitely some meat behind this one. Feels rock just swirling it around in my glass. Dark, flat, greyish orange.

S - wholesome and rich aromas of juicy orange and coriander. Little bit of resin and spicy lemon rind. Touch of melon and grain.

T - the coriander turns to fresh Galaxy pineapple. Soft and gentle, but at the same time fiery and commanding earthiness with balanced grassy bitterness. Can't think of a better name for this beer! Slightly dank, sightly tangy. Citrus rind and mealy vegetation. Lingering bitterness that dries but also peppers the tongue with salivation. My mouth is watering!

F - home run. Like entering another dimension. Drinking a cloud. Silky luxury bursts forth like a velvety ocean wave breaking free of the still water surrounding it. Impossibly smooth and rich without being thick or cloying. Amazing.

O - another killer Tilted Barn brew. Stunning mouthfeel and big, fluffy, gentle giant flavors with focused and masterful bitterness. This is a well-crafted beer.

Milky yellow with retaining white foam.

Melon, grass, bright.

I thought Amarillo at first, surprised to see Galaxy. Simcoe's usually pine to me. Cracker base, dank hops, tangy sweet fruit that pervades and a little vegetable finish. Floral mix.

Little dry, medium carb.

Very pleased. Very smooth ipa. Great flavor. Cloudy, as I prefer. First review and I am very new to this. But this beer was good enough to start an account and get talking about beer with friends. Very solid and very drinkable ipa. Have yet to try Cactus but that is my next beer from Tilted in the fridge..

Had on draft at the brewery.

Cloudy orange in color with a fluffy white head.

Aroma of mangoes, oranges, pineapple and touch of pine.

Taste is a mango assault, with some pineapple, and a hint of lime. Finishes with a nice bready malt. Slightly peppery.

Feel is medium in bodied with moderate carbonation. Extremely dry and resinous on the finish. Goes down relatively smooth.

Overall, a good if unspectacular IPA. It's got a good amount of flavor and balance. Would definitely try this one again.

It pours a super hazy completely opaque golden yellow.

Nose features notes of white wine, kiwi, mango, and clementine.

The taste brings notes of super ripe pineapple, green banana, and lime. There is a big grainy presence leading into a pronounced peppery doughy malt profile. The finish is bitter and dank with some more lime.

Mouthfeel is medium. A bit boozy for the ABV.

Overall, I'm not crazy about this one. The flavors just don't really come together for me. This isn't TB's best work.

Pouring a cold 16 oz can into a snifter. the beer pours a very cloudy orange juice color into my glass. A dense bleached white head of 1 cm foams up. the foam fades to a thin edge layer and one wispy island that spins in the center of my glass.
The aroma is some citrusy fruit with mango and orange notes. I also get a bit of pine sap and maybe some biscuit malt.
Aroma is bold right from the pop top opening on the can.
The first sip reveals an average body with very fine yet tingly carbonation. The texture is smooth and drinks super easy on each sip. No hint of any ABV.
Flavor is citrusy notes of orange and grapefruit with a little mango. I also get some resiny pine sap that pops up on the finish and lingers a little bit with some bitterness. I dont get any alcohol hit and the malt is pretty buried in this hop forward IPA.
An enjoyable brew with a great aroma and solid on all aspects. Will definitely make the drive to Exeter again!

Golden yellow orange in color. Turbid in appearance. Mango smoothie, ripe peach, guava, pineapple and pine. Biscuit malt. Dry, raw bitter finish. Smooth. Real good.
