Real hazy orange pour with big off white head that dissipates quickly. Solid lacing
Smells and tastes of sticky citrus piths, with some breadyalt sweetness.
Feel is medium and carb is just right.
Overall, this is another great Morph from Night Shift.

12oz. can purchased at the brewery on 1/9/16 and served in a shaker pint. Pours a dull, hazy orange with a tight, 1/8th inch bright white head the dissipates into a soapy slick. Thin spots and swaths of lacing are evident during the tasting. Great aromatics - citrus fruit, spice and rind. Taste is a bit more heavier on the spice and rind than the citrus notes. Finishes with a light, earthy bitterness. Great body on this beer - perfect malt balance yields a light-medium body (but closer to light) with a crisp carbonation and a mild acidity. Really quite quaffable, but nothing really stands out for me. Not getting the hype on this one, although the balance is quite good.

12 oz. can

Pours golden yellow with a creamy white foam head. Smells deeply of mango, passionfruit, guava, peach, with mild pine and grass. Tastes like bitter grass and pine, resin, mango, peach, passionfruit, guava, with a mild citrus undertone. Feels light and creamy with low carbonation. Overall a nice, bitter and hoppy tropical flavored IPA.

Pours a slightly hazy very pale orange with a finger of white head, decent retention. Aroma is subdued but lightly tropical. Taste is very tropical, mostly grapefruit, orange, and mango with some candied citrus fruits and a light bitterness. I love the juicy mango upfront but don't love the slightly cloying candied citrus that lingers after the finish. Medium-light body, moderate carbonation. Bottom line: juicy but has a balancing bitterness,interesting, and drinkable.
