Tall can, "canned 03/06/18"

Nice looking hazed pour, leaves delicate off white fluff, and a load of fine scattered lace. Nice looking brew.

Lemony sniff, bright and fruity.

Delicious NE style IPA, hazy and juicy, with more lemons, pineapple, grapefruit. resiny/grapefruit filled hoppy finish...fresh and tasty...go get some

Pours slightly hazy, caution light yellow in color, with 3/4 inch head. Taste is big dank hops, starfruit, and pale malt. Slightly bitter, medium bodied, and carbonation. Makes for a nice show case for the citra hop. I prefer other beers by Night shift but this is solid.

Fresh late-August 16oz can into a snifter glass, hazy yellowy straw color with a small white head forming at the top.

Pretty dank aroma with a definite pineapple note there, underlying cracker malts. Starts with a flash of cracker malt, bit of grain, then a wave of citra hops containing light citrus and pineapple. Dank finish, light and easy to drink.

Almost like a pale ale in body, it's so easy to crush this. I suspect this has a pretty low ABV. Great beer for the summer.

(16 oz can dated 12/20/16 - drank 4 weeks later, pint glass)

Pours a pale hazy gold with lots of carbonation - I had a 3-finger fluffy white head that forms clumps more than lacing. The aroma is refreshingly pleasant resinous mix of pineapple, pine and grapefruit. Aroma is stronger than most of this beer style (but not in the category of "dank") and that gets my up-vote for sure.

Taste is wonderfully balanced combination of fruity hops and slightly sweet cracker malt. Not very bitter but that is the trend with the juicy IPAs. One night argue this is marginally an IPA as a result, but for the style they are going for this hits the nail dead on and with force. The mouth feel is somewhat creamy and thin due to the lack of bitterness. Again, goes with the style. Aftertaste slowly fades to a tangy pine buzz - this gets more vote from me as well.

Overall this is a great ambassador for the juicy hazy NE IPA. It is well worth going out of the way to hunt it down. For a single hop it packs a great balanced flavor.

Thanks Drew. Canned on 12/06/16. This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a semi-dark hazy burnt yellow almost orange color. Finger’s worth of white foamy head stood atop the glass and that trickled down nicely. Moderate clingy semi-speckled lacing hung all around. The aroma takes some grapefruit rind bitterness to slap against some smooth citrus pulpiness, somewhat creamy-like. Subtle piney hop nuances underneath. The flavor starts bitter and gets a nice smooth sweet creamy citrus pulpiness to it. Reminiscent of juice but still the creaminess is there. No aftertaste but a quick bittersweet citrusy finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. Appropriate bitterness level, but still the creaminess likes to smooth it all out a bit. Overall, damn nice AIPA that I would love to have again.

P- Poured from a 16 oz can,into a pint glass.Canned on 09/12/17.

L- Thin soapy white colored head that dissolves quick,with moderate lacing.Slightly hazy straw colored body with good clarity and lots of carbonation.

S- On the nose I get citrus and grassy notes,with a slight hint of wheat.

T- The palate follows the nose with citrus fruits up front,lemongrass notes in the middle,and sweet malt and wheat on the back end.

F- The mouth feel is thin an chalky,with prickly oxidation and a dry finish.

O- pretty good IPA,not my favorite by them,but still good.
