Nice stone fruit with proper malting behind it. Fuzzy nose of peaches and floral notes. Mouthfeel is pretty spot on for the abv - allows for good, nuanced experience. Nice beer - especially for a collab.

Picked-up a four-pack at Kappy's in Norwell for about fourteen dollars. Have had several brews from Night Shift, am a fan. Enjoyed this, would definitely get again.

16 oz into tulip. Dated 10/10/18. ABV listed at 7.50%
Not sure if this is even the same beer, but same name. This is collab with Breakside Brewery.
Look is nice cloudy orange and nose is tropical with orange leading the way. Taste follows nose and is very nice. Feel is smooth and creamy. Overall a very nice DIPA that is an easy drink. Try it if you can.

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

Pours a semi hazy orange with thick, soft foam. Leaves a ton of lacing on the glass.

The smell is dank, and slightly sweet, with oodles of juicy mango in the background.

The taste follows the nose upfront, and adds a superb hop bite, before finish with a flurry of ripe peaches. Not a hint of booze. Fantastic!

Body is medium, and quite oily. Good carbonation.

Superb DIPA, soft and smooth, but with tons of flavor. Another great beer by Night Shift.

A:
Pours a bright orange-gold with a dollop of airy off-white head that eventually evaporates. Pretty good retention; some lacing. (4)

S:
Juicy aroma of citrus and over-ripe mango with some dank hop body tying it together. (4.25)

T:
A big rush of resinous tropical fruit flavors; melon, mango, tangerine, pot, sap. (4.25)

M:
Medium body with a soft feel, velvety carbonation and a hop resin coated finish with some alcohol peeking through as well. (4.5)

O:
Wow. What a beer!
She's really nice-looking, with a good head and a glowing orangeish color. Both the aroma and flavor are dominated by tropical fruits (especially mango) and some dank hoppiness underneath and in the finish. It feels like drinking a cloud with a little alcohol and hop resin together in the finish. This is one of the most juice-like beers I have had in a long time. Luckily it is still bitter enough to snap you back to earth. Regardless of how you feel about beers like this you've gotta admit it's incredible that someone can get these kinds of flavors out of boiled plant buds. I'd definitely have this one again. It would be right more than twice a day. (4.5)

Pours a hazy dark orange in color with a finger of white head. Aroma is actually pretty nondescript, a touch of stone fruit and tropical fruit but not much else. Taste is sherbert-like mango and peach with a juicy note at the end. Medium+ body and moderate carbonation. I can't quite decide how I feel about this beer; on some sips I dig the sherbert notes but other times they don't do it for me. If I have to decide then I'd say I like this beer, it's interesting and at least worth a try.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!! Cheers to a Boston area beer, in collaboration with a Portland Oregon beer. This definitely carries the clean characteristics of an Oregon fresh hop soul with it, in that hazy New England body. A nice break from the norm. All the citrus, on a bed of fresh cut grass and flowers, with a side of Irish Soda Bread crackers.

From a 16oz can, dated 03/03/17. Served in a nonic.

Pours a medium-hazy rusty-orange-gold with two fingers of poufy, cream coloured head. Retention is excellent - in fact, I'll never know how excellent because I cannot wait any longer. A solid sheet of thin lacing chases the beer all the way to the bottom of the glass.

Smell is oranges, peaches, pears and berries, sweet bread rolls and clover.

The taste is a bitter melange of oranges, lemon pith, grape peels and freshly mown grass over the merest suggestion of a softly sweet, crackery malt base. Dank, grassy and drying with a slightly spicy, briefly lingering grapefruit and pine bitterness.

Feel is crisp and clean, medium-to-medium-light bodied, brightly carbonated with only faint detectable alcohol.

Overall, a right-tasty beverage! Brewed with citra and topaz, this is a well-crafted but unapologetically high-alpha acid dope-slap of citric bitterness.

16 oz. canned 03/03/17

Pours foggy hazy golden amber with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells like peach, papaya, mango, pineapple, guava, some berry, orange citrus, grapefruit, mild caramelized bready crackery malt, with dank resinous floral earthy herbal grassy pine.
