L - Golden yellow color, murky body, two fingers of white head

S - Beeswax, honey, lemon, orange peel

T - More of the same from the aroma. Not very bitter thanks to lupulin powder, but has a bit at the end of each sip

F - Full and creamy. No alcohol.

O - A sweeter DIPA than most due to honey. Might be an acquired taste, but I like it.

Canned 1/29/18, good black and gold beer for the Bs game

Pours a large fluffy foamy 1+ finger head that fades at a slow pace, seems to stick around for a while, sitcky lacing, murky honey orange color

Nose nice citrus and fruit, flowery floral honey and a little sweet candy notes, creamy malt, clementine, a little apricot and creamy wheat

Taste brings a little honey and fermented honey with mild ester notes I think, but earthy floral notes, creamy toasty wheat and malt, some sweetness both malt and honey, floral honey, nice hops citrus, a little stone fruit apricot jam, clementine, mild tropical like note, lupilin spicy raw hop bitterness character, fair bitterness, drier finish with a hint of possibly alcohol but big bitter hop bite

Mouth is med bod, creamy soft, fluffy carb, a touch of alcohol

Overall pretty nice, honey is there in a nice character both raw honey and fermented honey, decent hops although lupulin starts OK then gets a little raw hop almost spicy like character

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about twelve dollars. Big fan of Night Shift, have never heard of this brew before. A bit above my ABV comfort zone, but a very nice brew, would buy again.

Pours bright yellow and cloudy and a fluffy white head.

Smells citrusy and piney.

Taste is juicy and fruity. Bright citrus hoppy flavor. The tail end adds a sweet touch of honey that cuts through the bitternessin a good way. Not a huge IPA guy, so anything that cuts through the hoppiness is appreciated.

Mouthfeel- light and crisp

Overall, a great IPA for a person who doesn;t like IPAs. Night Shift continues to impress.

Dank, passion fruit, fresh cut grass, grapefruit pith, melon and tangerine. Biscuit malt. Medium bodied. Creamy feel. Citrus bitter bite on the finish. Not too sweet, semi dry. Real good.
