So pleased with night shift. Being a whirlpool junky this was really good. Great light mouthfeel and nose on this one. Wished they came out with this weekly. Glad I got to enjoy this on Halloween. Would get again if I can find it.

Poured from a can into a tulip glass:

Appearance: a vibrant, very turbid goldenrod color, with a puffy, sudsy pure white head. Head has lots of retention, and lingers for a few minutes, leaving plenty of sticky lacing.

Aroma: lots of hop love here, with some citrus and tropical fruit, backed by herbal, weedy scents. Smells fresh and delicious.

Taste: passionfruit, oranges, and a little bit of a cilantro-esque flavor. Suppose that'd about follow the aroma, in that it hits you with tropical first, then supplements with some herbacious flavor. Quite yummy.

Feel: soft-medium body, with a medium length finish. Creamy and smooth.

Overall: a really delicious IPA. Stoked to try the next version of Morph when it comes out.

Courtesy of the incredibly generous @chipawayboy, this can (insta-bonus points for canz) pours a really pleasant hazy, creamy yellow shade, nice dollop of foam atop, which hangs around a bit but leaves spotty lacing. Nose is the highlight here, big whiffs of cool, fresh tropical fruit, maybe some piquant citrus, and even a touch of something herbal. Palate is tasty, inviting, and sort of sneaky bitter, in that mild astringent tang that builds as you drink more of it. Really quite a nice drink!

Nice IPA with a less-than-aggressive imbalanced hop/malt profile. Light orange pour with a minimal lacing. Aroma of lemon, pine, orange rind; taste on the dryer side of orange, mango and pineapple. Nice beer that starts and ends crisp. Smooth, easy to drink IPA that isn't too citrusy/hoppy. Highest marks for being refreshing and very drinkable.

Can. One of the better Morph beers I have had. Pours a hazy orange. Aroma doesn't have that gross, sickly sweet malt profile most of Night Shift's hoppy beers usually come with. It's full of dry citrus notes. Flavor is grassy, dry and citrusy. That ├╝ber sugary malt is present but far less pronounced as most Morphs. Lighter bodied. These rotating IPAs by Night Shift are hit or miss. I stopped buying them because most of the time I can't stand their malt profile. This one was a bit different.
