Yay craft cans! Canned 8/19/14.

Pours a pasty white fizzy 1 finger head that fades at a med pace, mild soapy lacing, super hazy straw pear juice lemony yellow like color.

Nose lots of fresh fruits, fresh hops out front, grassy and floral with plenty of fruits, lots of citrus, tangerine and orange, with a little rind, musty dank resinous notes, with a little passion fruit, and plenty of grapefruit pith, mild juicy peach and tangerine juice. Mild sweet malt base barely detectable underneath.

Taste brings more juicy fruits, but a little more tame, big grapefruit juice out front, and a mild pith, some melon rind, orange peel bitterness but not super bitter either. Then into more citrus, a little tangerine and juicy peach again, with a bit of tropical fruit note, generic tropical fruit mixed with juicy stone like fruit and citrus. It also has a mild dank musty note, but not much, little jack fruit even. Hops are mildly bitter and a touch of grassy floral hop note too. Mild grainy malt base, a touch toasty and creamy, mild grainy doughy note too. Finish is like seltzer a bit, grapefruit pith and mild citrus rind lingering, no sweetness and that dry bitter rind, with popping carbonation really gives that seltzer aftertaste.

Mouth is med to a bit lighter bod, nice fluffy carb that gets bright and tingly, little abrasive like feel like it has little fruit particles in it.

Overall interesting, nice fresh fruits, great hop presence and other fruits possibly added, it seems like they added orange rind and grapefruit pith to it and they're still there with the feel of abrasive pulp in it even. Mild malts that remind you they are there then disappear forever. Pretty enjoyable.

Pretty bland and watery. The sort of beer that gives "Session IPAs" a bad name.

Pours a milky yellow, almost like pineapple juice, with a thin white layer of foam. Mild lacing. The aroma is very impressive. It actually smells like fruit juice. It smells exactly like peach juice. Also it smells like pineapple juice (funny, because it looks like it, too). The aroma isn't too intense but it works well, I enjoy its softness (night Shift refers to it being soft). On the tongue, the flavor displays a bit more balance; I pick up some cereal flavors. The peach and pineapple hop flavor, brought on by Mosaic hops, is the leading flavor. This beer is very unique. The hops bring forth such a specific flavor but it is overall a very mild experience. It's extremely drinkable; even quenching. Lively carbonation enhances the body and feel. Mild bitterness. I am very happy with this brew and I wish I bought a whole four pack of cans.

Via can.

Slightly cloudy, very light pastel pale yellow in color. Forms a fairly large fluffy bright white head that falls quite quickly, leaving about a quarter inch or so of foam on the top. Lots and lots of lacing. Aroma is quite pleasant. Juicy tropical fruit, peach, orangey citrus, and a mild bit of bread. However, the taste falls off. Lightly sweet and somewhat watery blend of fruits. Peaches, orange, and unripe papaya. Lighter body, medium carbonation, low bitterness.

Color was a pale straw with cascading tiny bubbles. This smelled like pure pineapple juice. You definitely get the hops up front on this and then it mellows out into almost a wheat like malt flavor. Flavor is a slight let down after the smell. It's crisp, light and everything a pale ale should be but missing that 1 thing that would make it great. Probably one of the best non sour beers that Night Shift has put out. Could crush this all day.
