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.

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

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.
