gorgeous beer.... this is how an ipa should look. great retention and beautiful lacing all down the glass. excellent tropical aroma with definite pineapple and a nice citrus zest. taste is right in line with the smell, tropical citrus up front with a touch of malt. good mouthfeel and finishes with a nice bitterness. definitely recommend this one!

A major hop bomb I had a can marked 2/21/16. Very hop forward, bitter citrus flavor maybe clementine and dank piney finish not much sweetness. Stayed pretty dry in the mouth the whole time. Poured cloudy gold color and creamy head that disappears. I would love it if this got a name and was offered regularly

Holy wow. This thing is the best looking beer I've seen, stands up against any other mass big hazy juicy hop bomb of a beer. Smells delicious, tastes like orange with a slight bitter back end. This is the best night shift beer they've made yet for me.

Batch 1/21/16, poured into a Tulip.
A: Nice Cloudy Darkish Golden color. Pillow soft and lofty two finger head that hangs around decently. Good smattering of sticky lacing.
S: Tons of hops here, a little citrus, having a little trouble pinpointing it, possibly orange or tangerine? Definitely has that piney dank smell on the back end.
T: Shocker, hops off the get go, with tons of piney resin smack too ! Malts are barley there to me.
F: The first few sips had a very nice soft feel that was somewhat smooth. As it warmed, it seemed the get a slightly thin feeling. Certainly has that bitter hop bite. Somewhat dry. Medium body with low to medium carbonation.
O: I have not had any of their other "Morph" batches to compare to, but it's a solid New England IPA. Cloudy, Hop Bomb, with some citrus tones.

Well done Night Shift.
