Appearance: pours a golden yellow color with a big two inch head. Nice lace develops during the session.

16 oz. can dated 04/01/16

Pours a hazy bright gold with a dense creamy off-white head. Smells like huge peach, passionfruit, mango, guava, orange, ripe honeydew melon, caramel, with fresh pine and dank herbal grass. Tastes like orange citrus, grapefruit, honeydew melon, mild mango, white peach, guava, passionfruit, mild caramel, with fresh pine and dank earthy grass. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy with low carbonation. Overall a really nice batch of Morph.

Reviewing all these variants is getting exhausting...but, shit the moon, this is the best one yet. Pine, citrus, a bit of tropical fruit, bitter with a clean, crisp finish. The after-effect is like being awed by Haley's Comet and looking forward to watching it tear through the atmosphere again tomorrow night. Not gonna happen. Euphoric but also depressing. This was one hell of a beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

appearance- Golden amber in color, clear yet a little cloudy, and pours a three finger soapy textured head.

aroma- Lots of pine, juicy citrus, and a some bready malt.

taste- Starts off with a big burst of sweet citrus and orange while being balanced by pine and hop bitterness in the middle. Finishes had a little bready malt and little bit of melon sweetness rounding things out.

feel- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry/crisp yet smooth, and clean throughout.

overall- First Morph I've tried and this is an excellent start. Great drinkability, great balance, and nice array of hop flavors that meld well with each other.

This smelled amazing with opulent tropical fruit, but the flavors unfortunately did not match the inviting aromas. It ended up with more vegetal bitterness than expected. This might have been the best NS beer that I've smelled though.

Thanks Kevin for sharing this.

A- Tallboy to a snifter with a medium golden body and a pinky high frothy cap. That head dies down somewhat quickly to a medium belt. Lace sticks as small spots.

S- Tropical for the most part with the stone fruits coming out big but not overly juicy as earthy and spicy hints blend in well. Peach, tangerine, apricot, oranges and mango notes.

T- Drafts some pine and more spiciness here to join the nectar of bitter and sweet tropical fruits like peach, mango, passionfruit, ruby red grapefruit and tangerine. Cleanliness beyond the hops as some cereal grains come to mind and a touch of bread.

MF- Medium overall thickness and a consistency that comes down to creamy and frothy touches on the palate. High end carbonation with a bitter orange peel zestiness in the finish.

Bright tropical fruit hops complimented by some pine resin and something all around spicy and earthy. At this point the last few Night Shift brews I have tried have been quite good compared to the early days of what I was trying. Keep it up.
