Pours a slight hazy yellow with a thin white head on top. The smell of some subtle spicy hops on the nose. The taste has a nice tanginess going on with some bitterness in the finish. The feel is on the dry side and light bodied. Overall I thought this was pretty solid.

Canned on 1/8/20

Pours an opaque, glossy dusty gold hue topped with barely a finger of creamy white head; poor head retention leaves a light ring of foam, a barely-there, spotty, paper-thin cap, and sparse webbing of tight lacing around the glass.

Aromas of succulent melon and papaya burst forth and leave an excellent first impression, eventually softening to touches of mango peel and creamy dank citrus before the earthen core of dirt, dry grass, young, vinous herbs previously touching the backdrop take over.

Taste brings mango rind and light peach tones upfront, while a grassy interplay with creamy sweetness dried out with a vague, steadying herbal touch becomes more apparent over time; the transition from tropical and fruity to herbal and earthy leaves a clean and easygoing profile.

Mouthfeel is lighter-bodied with a moderate-low carbonation and increasing crispness along the palate, with a prominent juicy peak near the finish; gleaming semi-bitterness fades with the swallow and highlights a somewhat balancing grit along the way.

A hazy brew that does well to blur the lines between pale ale and NEIPA, its seemingly indomitable fruity tones do give way to subtlety over time and leave a crisp, abundantly fruity 'new-age' take on the style in its wake, capped with a signature raw hop earthiness I've come to expect from the most balanced of Tilted Barn beer.
