Pours a very hazy golden yellow
Big melon and pineapple on the aroma, some dankness as well.
Sweet fruits, almost fruit snack or fruit punch like in flavor, berries citrus, hint of pine.
Feel is silky and refreshing. Bitter but not overly so, tingling hops presence. Alcohol is totally hidden.
Best night shift ipa by far.

16 oz can. Hazy orange pour with finger white head they fades slowly to a thin layer, soapy lace. Tropical aroma with some dark fruit notes, jumps out. Taste is on the sweet side with lots of ripe fruit and oniony earth in the finish. There's some slight booze in the end as well. Mouthfeel is thin to medium but slick. High carbonation.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Look: Deep golden color with flashes of orange; cloud and opaque. Pours with a 2+ finger off-whitehead head that dies down leaving a thin, even layer of foam on the surface of the beer and lots of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass. Near perfect.

Smell: Acidic, loads of citrus (oranges, lemons), slight grassy/pine aroma. Inviting.

Taste: Slight pine flavor to start; followed by lots of pineapple, some oranges and mild tart lemon finish.. Delicious and refreshing.

Feel: Medium body. Very slight fizzy sensation at the start; velvety smooth finish. Very refreshing, no dryness. Perfect.

Overall: Delicious DIPA. One of the best ever that I have tasted.

had a second go at this as it had a couple days to settle down.

L - An opaque golden orange, not hazy but deep. Very nice.

S - Floral hops on the nose. Fruity, clementine (?).

T - hops on hops on hops. bitter and tart, galaxy and idaho7 hops that I am familiar with, the other two not so familiar to me but seem to work in unison. extremely hoppy, as advertised. has a creamy bitter finish. can taste the alcohol. (on second run I noticed this far less) On the second tasting I noted far more of the citrus, matching the smell I tasted clementine and orange peel.

MF - full, low carb, full and rich. mouthfeel is great.

O - solid 4th anny offering from NS. is a hoptastic hop haven of hops, possibly at the expense of itself in places though. Overall a great offering., the feel is perfect, one of the best I've had, could do with a bit of calming on the alc taste. Overall solid. Even better 4 days after canning, I bet this will be incredible after 1-2 weeks.

edit: a week out even better... wow.
