Thanks to Kevincredible for the extra. Can to tulip.

A. Pours a cloudy/hazy dull lemon color- like a hefe. Opaque. The head, thick at first, very effervescent, quickly retreated to a moderate bubble rim. Not frothy and very coarse. No laces to speak of. Interesting.

S. Dank, funky, and dusty with a little sock thrown in at the end (not in a bad way as IPA fans will know). With that said, the specific notes are tropical: orange, lemon, mango and more lemon.

T. The taste comes through hop heavy with notes of lemon peel, resin, pine, and coriander. A moderate to strong hop bite. Is this a hefe/IPA hybrid?

M: A decent amount of bite. Light smoothness, moderate to light body, high carb.

O: This is an interesting ale. It's very good and well crafted. I like it but do not know if I would choose this over other offers. The cloudy and lemon color combined with a lemon/coriander taste notes brings this IPA close to a hefe (did I already say that?).

I really liked the new morph recipe. Tasted during same sitting as Santilli, I preferred this batch of morph. Hope this morph recipe makes another appearance sometime soon!

Thanks Kevin for gifting me the can.

A- 12oz can-which-does-not-morph drops a beyond pale (think Berliner) yellow brew atop which a thick, creamy cap rises to one finger. Almost turbid. Good head retention and lacing starts with a long sheet and some drizzle sticks underneath that.

S- Hoppy and yeasty aroma. Seems like the cloudy appearance is from yeast that has brought some not-so-clean notes with it (pale fruity; reminds me of bottle conditioned homebrew IPAs). Hops are bright and fresh with stone fruit, floral, tropical citrus and lime aromatics.

T- Hops push the feisty yeast back a bit here but those flavors are still very prevalent. Big citrus like lime, lemon and orange with tones of tangerine, mango, flowers and herbs beyond that. Cascade is the leader and I don't get much Galaxy. Pale yeast fruits, bread and cracked light grains. More stone fruits with time.

MF- Light and crisp body with a basal level of creaminess and some foamy texture. Carbonation on the high side allowing the hops to pop. Lightly, clean bitter finish.

A solid IPA and a very easy drinker. Cascade hops up front with stone and tropical fruits as well as floral tones cascading beyond that. Has some bottle-conditioned-yeasty feel that brings it down just a bit but well done overall.
