Very nice floral and citrus aroma. Sweet.

Grapefruit taste, some grassy hops. Sweet and flowery.

This beer is hoppy but not overly hoppy. A very drinkable IPA, i think those who aren't big IPA fans would also enjoy it.

Growler fresh from the brewery poured into a Sam Adams Perfect pint glass. Not really a "pink" IPA, but I can see why they would try to label it as one. It's really more of an orange/amber color with a watered down and filtered grapefruit juice tinge to it. Glows a little brighter when held up to the light, with some very good clarity. White head with medium sized bubbles, good lacing.

Smell is pretty good. Decent citrus and floral hop aromas coming through here. Followed by a nice doughy sweet bread. I can't really pick up any hibiscus (apparently that's the flower that makes it pink), but there are some floral aromas. It's all meshed in there pretty nice, but nothing about the smell is very strong.

Taste is on par with the aroma. Grapefruit citrus comes out the most, my guess is of all the hops, cascade might have been the hop used the most. Still Amarillo hops are very detectable based on the gentle and easy transition to bitterness. Some doughy bready tones in the flavor profile as well.

Mouthfeel is a little bit better than ok. Body is fairly light but at the same time oily and piney. Not that it has to be, but nothing about this beer is strong. Has a slight sweetness in the beginning with a easy transition to bitterness, and even though it's not strong, it's equally balanced. While being piney and oily it still maintains a level of cleanliness, you can tell it's well crafted. Moderate carbonation put together with a nice light flavor still makes it pretty drinkable. This beer is good but not great, if the recipe doesn't really changed I don't know for sure I'd get it again this time of year, more of a light summer IPA for me. Still glad I tried it, I just think Night Shift can do better.

Pours a really sharp pink with a bright white head. The scent is a bit fruity and fairly piney. You can tell it is an ale despite the color. Taste is a fairly generic bitter APA. I'm not getting much in lines of the advertised hops. It's a tad floral but the hop bill doesn't play into the hibiscus like say Revolution's Rosa does. This was just too bitter for what I expected and it missed the mark on being interesting as well.
