Drank on-tap at Miracle of Science, Cambridge, MA
Served in a pint glass
Super cloudy, straw yellow appearance. The liquid was topped by a tiny, soapy looking, bright white cap that quickly dissipated. Really unusual for an American pale ale. There was no lacing whatsoever.
The aroma was really impressive. Super hoppy and fruity. Peach and apricot notes came through strong. Some sweet orange was also apparent. Moderately wheaty and lemony. Slightly tart.
The flavor profile was very similar to the aroma. Fruity hops dominated. Here too, the peachy/apricot-like notes were in full effect. Good amount of orange peel. Touch of bready malts. There was a subtle wheaty, lemony presence in the center. Grapefruit notes carried the beer into the finish, lending just the right amount of bitterness.
On the palate, the beer was incredibly creamy and soft. The liquid contained a super fine and mild effervescence.
Every beer I have tried thus far by Night Shift Brewing has been a winner, and this one is no exception. Whirlpool, which seems to be a APA/witbier hybrid, is a perfect warm weather thirst quencher.

Poured into a stemmed Night Shift glass from a growler I picked up at my first trip to the brewery yesterday.
A) Hazy light, almost creamy, yellow color. Pours an average size, soft head that dissipates rather fast. Not leaving much lacing so far on the first pour.
S) Light hops and grapefruit along with a faint peach. Not a huge nose, but very nice non the less.
T) Love it. Tons of grapefruit and that peach again. Not bitter at all. This is a super smooth brew.
M) Very nice, but mother overwhelming.
O) I found this quite enjoyable. Nice light drinking beer that I can definitely see myself grabbing again.
