L: nice semi hazy, well hydrated piss yellow
S: best attribute, by far. fruit and hops in nice balance
T: maybe it's just not what I'm appreciating right now, but it's bitterness seems to grow with each sip overpowering the fruit eventually. Not the kind of beer I can imagine having another of in the same day (or week). If it was one of several in a blind test I'm sure it would be just one of the pack, for me.
F: light/medium
O: there are a lot of nice beers out there, some more and some less expensive, tastier than Santilli, no point bothering with this one again.

Pours a semi turbid copper to peach color with a thin white head. Nose is bready with citrus and melon. Taste of pale malts and bread. Malty notes fade to hops. Citrus, mangoes and melon. Hoppy bitter kick towards the back end of this one. Hoppier as it warms. Light floral in there as well. Medium body with a hoppy slightly bitter kick to finish.

Appearance: yellowish orange in color with a 1/2" head that slowly falls.

Smell: melon, pineapple, and some earthy tones are picked up by the nose.

Taste: caramel, bread, melon, pineapple, grapefruit. and a juicy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Crisp throughout with some dryness late.

Overall: a very tasty brew focused on tropical fruits and hearty bitterness.

Canned 12/22/17. Hazy lemon drop color with a fluffy head of 2 fingers. Lots of nice lace left behind on the glass.

Wow, a very malt-forward nose with toasted biscuit, sourdough, and toast. Nice elements of lemon, grapefruit, and passion fruit behind that.

Flavor is of dry biscuit, then grapefruit peel, grapefruit pith, grapefruit juice, lemon peel, and slight hop resins. Very fresh tasting. Mild pine and herbal notes on the back half. Lots of grapefruit overall. And more grapefruit, too.

Feel is crisp, busy, and clean. Slight creaminess in the middle, ending on some crispness and slight resin.

Overall a very decent beer worth checking out. Night Shift really leans towards grapefruit flavors, so if that's your thing, Night Shift is where you want to look. Grapefruit.
