Simcoe, Topaz, and Columbus; low ABV with lots of flavor; inviting flavors of nectarine and orange peel with a soft finish.

Damn, this beer was good... pale gold body with a light haze, crystalline white head that coated the glass with lace... Aromas of lemongrass, light pine, grassy fields, and pale citrus... Flavors in the same vein... Clean, crisp, and light-bodied... amply carbonated and quick-drinking... Features Simcoe, Topaz, and Columbus hops... 5/3/17 canning...

Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a one inch white head that left blotches of lacing. Smells of citrus and pine. Tastes of orange, lemon, cantaloupe and some pine. Light bodied, well carbonated, finishes mildly bitter and dry.

Pale golden yellow in color. Hazy in appearance. Batch 49 is dank. Light bodied. Lime, pine and grass. Getting a hint of pilsner malt. Shorter finish. Dry. Light, crisp and delicious.

Poured from a 16oz can into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a hazy pale yellow with a billowy head.

Aroma is really bright citrus lemon.

Taste matches aroma. Hops make up for a thinner body, balanced real nicely.

Can from Colonial
Hazy murky yellow with a huge frothy white head that persists. Lemony over ripe grapefruit and some nice piney dankness. Light grassy herbal bitterness. I like this one a lot more than the last.

Brewed with Simcoe, Topaz, and Columbus, this latest version of Morph looks, smells, tastes and feel good. For a session beer at 4.6%, it is about as chock full of an IPA as could be

From the website: "Batch #49 (5/3/17). Simcoe, Topaz, and Columbus; low ABV with lots of flavor; inviting flavors of nectarine and orange peel with a soft finish. (4.6%)"

Hazy yellowish-gold pour, similar to Whirlpool but not quite as neon. Nice one-notch head that lingers. Awesome aroma - citrus, pine and pakalolo. Surprisingly robust for the ABV. Taste is tangerine, melon, pineapple and pine - great combination of flavors. Drinks smooth with a little kiss of bitterness on the backend. Not too fruit forward or bitter - excellent beer, made even moreso by the sessionable ABV.
