4.19/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Canned on 8/4/20

Pours a dirty, brown-tinted orange body topped with multiple fingers of fluffy, eggshell-white foam; spectacular head retention yields a finger of creamy cap, a moderate, frothy collar, and a comprehensive, chunky spread of soapy lacing ringing around the glass; the dingy initial appearance does it no favors, though it's structurally near-perfect there on out.

Aroma opens with a steady stream of creamy, floral lime, soon saturated in tropical tones highlighting peach, with an herbal interlude of dried oregano; cantaloupe rind and grapefruit peel find a place on the back end, with earthier spiced citrus peel taking over the closing aspects.

Taste brings a familiarly expressive, floral lime, this time accented with further detail of passionfruit and light mango, with flaky malt consistent in the background; pineapple softens the mid-palate before underripe papaya and sweeter tropical fruits take a zesty turn on the finish.

Mouthfeel offers a medium body, approachable and silky upfront, and balanced with a soft, moderate carbonation; develops a slight, creamy texture and a contrasting mild hop acidity past the mid-palate, with a juicy burst before it dries; raw, chalky bitterness peaks on the back end and lingers softly through the finish.

A bit haywire in practice, even by the standard Tilted Barn has set with their intense, aggressive hop profiles, though concentrated enough for their barebones signatures to come through and leave a great pour that's kept me consistently intrigued and embroiled in the raw tones I've come to love and appreciate from this brewery.

I normally do not give a straight 5's across the board but this brew is exceptional. I recently had a fresh batch of hoppy brews from a very well known Massachusetts brewery and was impressed with them but this little brewery in RI hands down blew me away with this one.

Light opaque orange with a thick with head, smells of tropical fruit (passion fruit, pineapple, guava). The taste is the same as the smell with no bitterness, soft mouth feel. Absolutely amazing.
