Bright peach colored with a big white head and spotty lacing. Soft aromas of hops and stone fruits. Notes of citrus, zest, touch of stone fruit and light pine. Soft, zippy carbonation medium body, and semi dry finish. Well done IPA with nice citrus flavors.

Smell is citrus, pine, passionfruit, lemon rind - like a juicy west coast IPA. Taste is citrus (mandarin orange primarily), a hint of passionfruit, and fairly heavy hop bitterness on the finish. Wish I could try another batch of this.

hazy orange, nice puffy head that lasted the whole length of the beer. smell was oranges, lemon, bread, and resin. taste was big orange and big pine, showcased over slight bready malt. almost the same deal as Santilli but with a different beginning. feel was nice and fuzzy. another good morph batch!

Hazy honey colored body. About three fingers of soapy white head which dissipates to about one-half finger with a rolling top. Excellent lacing.

Orange. Peach. Pineapple. Bready. Slight resin underlying.

Tons of peach. Some underlying citrus and slight pineapple . Well-balanced pith and slight resin in the finish. Bready malt profile provides some depth, but is subtle and well integrated.

Medium to full bodied. Expected level of carbonation for the style. Clean finish.

My favorite version of Morph that I've had so far. I'm a big fan of Citra and Galaxy hops and Night Shift did a fantastic job with them this time out. Not really familiar with Comet. Anyway, I'd love to see Night Shift name this and brew it on the regular. What part of their address is left for another IPA though? Everett?

16 oz. can

Pours a hazy amber orange with a creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like peach, pineapple, mango, orange, grapefruit, bready caramel malt, papaya, with resinous pine and dank earthy grass. Tastes like mango, pineapple, peach, orange, bready caramel malt, papaya, grapefruit, with resinous pine and dank earthy grass. Feels medium bodied, creamy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really tasty batch of Morph.

Best batch of Morph I've had since I've been getting them regularly over the past year. Super juicy on the nose and palette, finishes with a really nice bitter citrus bite. Bought a four pack and drank three in one sitting. Will be going back for more before this runs out. Excellent stuff from the good people at Night Shift

dope looking can, beautiful hazed golden orange appearance with a dense and creamy white head that leaves great lacing... this is how an IPA should look.

got some pineapple, peach, and zesty citrus notes on the nose as well as an earthy note and slightly spicy danks... smells great!

bright orange and pineapple up front, great sweet fruity hops and breadyness, grapefruit and citrus peel. finishes on a resinous pine note that is perfectly balanced by sweetness. creamy mouthfeel coats nicely but still medium bodied and very easy drinking and refreshing.

Night Shift is one of the best breweries in Mass, and after trying a previous batch of Morph on draft at my work I was excited to find tallboys of this new brew at Vino di Vino in Boston. Color is a deep gold, scent is understated but the flavor is very juicy up front with a wonderfully bitter finish. I was disconcerted by the lack of a listed ABV, but after downing a couple of them I can rest assured that it's more than enough. This is an understatedly fruit forward IPA, with the initial sweetness of pineapple followed by a perfectly sharp orange zest finish. First was poured into a tall pint glass that produced a ton of bubbles but I drank the second straight from the can which I think lended to its flavor (not to mention the can's design is gorgeous). Although I was enjoying some Trainwreck (Indica) with it this evening, I'll be giving it a shot with some Sativa tomorrow and I'm expecting it to be a great pairing!

Another great 2016 iteration of Morph. Opaque orange-gold pour with a one-inch head that lasts. Aroma of citrus, pine, resin and a little herbal tea. Not quite sure what the new Comet hop brings to the table but the Citra and Galaxy are like a couple of old friends who show up with that outstanding tangerine, pineapple and peach flavors. The malt chassis takes steps to the left of the podium to make room for the hops. Nice bitterness and ends with a crisp citrus bite.
