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.
