Bottle enjoyed in a pint glass on 8/15/13.

A: Pours a cloudy, deep orange with a finger and a half of head that dissipates. Spotty lacing along the sides of the glass.

S: Orange, citrus, sweet sugar, a bit of funk.

T: Slight citrus hop bitterness, sweet malt, grapefruit, orange peel, and finishes with a bitterness that has piney flavor as well.

M: Medium-bodied, some sticky feeling, a bit of alcohol.

O: Really impressive offering from 2nd Shift. Nice citrus / sweet IPA that I will have again. (507 characters)

Pours amber with an impressive, tight, creamy, thick head. Slightly bready and earthy in the nose with fruity esters. Crisp carbonation upfront. Malty base with toasty undertones. Lemony, citric bite. Fruity, minty, dank, gritty, with notes of tea and tobacco too. Oily towards the end. Finishes ashy, chalky, tannic, and dry.

An IPA that wants to be a DIPA. Could use a bit of cleaning up. There's a lot going on, and it's not all working together. Despite this, a good offering nonetheless. (493 characters)

Hazy amber to light brown in color with a fingernail of off white foam on top. Impenetrable to light. Aroma of piney hops is pleasant. The taste is very pungent and bitter piney hops with a nice light malt backbone to follow it up with. The mouth is pleasant and crisply refreshing. (282 characters)

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange body. Medium white head. Nice lacing. Good retention and a wispy surface.

Smell -Citrus and toasty malt. Doesn't smell sweet though.

Taste - Bright grapefruit. Toasty and bready malts. Very mild bitterness and a lightly floral finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - I guess you'd call this balanced. I'd like a more dominant hop flavor, though. (434 characters)

The green 750 bottle had us all wary, but it turned out to be fine.

Poured into a slender tulip glass, it had a saturated orange gold color, transparent with a flurry of rising carbonation after the initial pour. Long lasting cap of white foam, plenty of spindly webbed lacing all around the glass.

Dank aroma of pineapple and candied orange peel, moving on to an unmistakeable cheesy funk of Columbus hops.

Flavors are heady and hop forward, more Columbus verging on parmesan but stopping just short. Plenty of tropical fruitiness and a drying bitter finish that builds and lingers for a good while. Light to medium bodied for a DIPA, not too bulky or sweet with caramel malt like so many others. This is light and drinkable, with a deft hop punch to it. Recommended. (773 characters)

Pours a murky dark orange color, with a nearly white head,leaving decent sporadic lacing. Aroma has a nice soft citrus and tropical fruit vide, light fruity sweetness, and bits or sweet maltiness. Taste goes more tropical with some passonfruit, orange, mango and pineapple. The bitterness is low, body is medium, somewhat soapy, oily, and creamy. The low bitterness makes it quite drinkable, but still having loads of hop flavor. All in all, its great. Super drinkable, flavorful. (480 characters)
