Can from the Packie
Lightly hazy with the faintest of gold in the color and a frothy long lasting bone white head. Earthy grassy pine and perfume with a touch of alcohol. Flavor is a bit grassy and peppery too. Not juicy like those hops normally present. Canned a month ago. Not horrible, no flaws, but not screaming ipa either.

Papaya, mango, over ripe peach, melon, pineapple and pine. Biscuit malt. Medium bodied. Lower amount of sweetness with a building bitterness the more you drink. It's pretty good but clunky.

Poured a orange copper color with a 2F head in a Garrison Teku Glass.

Peach, earthy, citrus aroma.

Semi viscous MF.

Peach, pear, citrus taste.

Good hoppy finish.

Excellent beer from Night Shift. My goto Boston area #brewery. This deserves better reviews.

Not much haze or head in this DIPA. Canned on 8/20, enjoyed on 9/21. Citrus and funk on the pallet. Was expecting more out of a night shift as I am a huge fan of morph
