12oz can into SN hop glass. Batch #1, canned 8/19/14. Thanks for saving me a can, Kevin.

A: Pours a very cloudy, very disgusting looking creamy white grapefruit juice color with a huge, billowing bright white head. The head looks like dish soap that has frothed up after a good lathering.
S: Sweet and hoppy with juicy notes of tropical fruits, papaya, mango, and mild citrusy flavors of tangerine and grapefruit. I get a hint of evergreen as well.
T: All the juicy tropical fruits and citrus from the nose carry over strong enough to be delicious, but light enough to remind me this is a pale ale. The finish has a hint of bready malt, and the aftertaste is sweet, juicy and has a clean, dry, citrus rind bitterness.
M: Slick and greasy mouthfeel with low carbonation. The body is medium-full. This could have used a touch more carb to fluff up the slickness a little bit, but overall it’s still very drinkable.
O: The flavors paired with the slick mouthfeel reminds me more of juice than beer, although not necessarily in a bad way. Aside from looking hideous, this beer was better than I expected. Thanks again AutumnBeerLove.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for hooking me up with some cans

Consumed 9/17/14

A: Pours a honey color with some tangerine and some yellow - remarkably, memorably cloudy - kind of looks like pale orange juice or maybe orange juice mixed with pineapple juice - small, white head, fades to a few spots

S: Tropical without an emphasis on citrus - pineapple and mango - some citrus, but it's fairly gentle, like tangerine flesh - very unique level of fruitiness - some pale malts and a touch of Night Shift's distinctive yeast

T: Not as vibrant as the aroma, but interesting - light pineapple, citrus flesh, hint of citrus rind, maybe even a hint of lime - peach and nectarine flesh with some fruity esters - minimal bitterness - pale malts, some light sweetness - more tropical flavors in the aftertaste - might just be the weird appearance, but at times it's like a fruit juice

M: Medium to light body, smooth, adequate carbonation

O: It's Morphin' Time!

This is as strange as advertised. The hop profile is very fruity and flavorful with very little bitterness. The peach flavor only becomes more apparent as it warms, and it's decidedly interesting

A-Extremely cloudy yellow, nice carbonation, with two finger head that leaves nice lacing.

S-Holy tropical notes. Extremely tropical, not much else but the tropical notes are practically perfect.

T-Starts with some tropical notes, not as good as the nose though. Has some wheat and a little bit of grass. Mild bitterness.

M-Light to medium bodied, crisp with nice carbonation.

O-What an extra in a trade. The tropical flavors were amazing.
