Criminey, with all the "Morphs" Night Shift has released, it was hard to find this one. Canned 12/19/17. 6.0% ABV.

Pours a beautiful hazy lemon drop color with a towering 3 finger head of shave foam. Nice dome in the middle too.

Strong aromas of grapefruit. Slight lemon and orange. Mostly fresh grapefruit.

Flavor follows the nose. Lots of grapefruit, slight lemon, and a kiss of strong passion fruit sweetness on the finish. Malts are thin and crackery.

Feel is not quite juicy, but borderline. A light, crisp body flirting with medium territory. Hint of hop oil on the finish.

Overall, a fair but not mind-blowing NE-style IPA. Enjoyable. Grapefruit.

Pours a very hazy yellow gold color with a one finger off-white head that settles to a film quickly

Aroma is mostly bright citrus with a sweeter hop behind it, possibly apricot notes.

Taste follows the smell, very clean tasting with an out of the way pale malt behind it that imparts little sweetness. Bitterness is moderate to high so that takes over the hops mid way through leaving a bitter finish.

Feel is very crisp and clean.

This is pretty tasty - no off flavors or weirdness. Doesn't stand out either, but I would gladly drink this one for a night if it was offered.

Appearance – One finger head over a very hazy yellow body. Lighter than anticipated.

Aroma – Citrus and a little floral, nice blend.

Taste – Strong bitterness, hop resins, and a long bitter aftertaste. Not a lot of other flavors, just bitter.

Mouthfeel – A bit astringent and puckering.

Overall – Too one-dimensional for me.

Served at the brewery: "with Citra, Azacca, & Eukanot".... "Clementine, lemon zest, dank"

Very cloudy with whitish yellow color. Lasting small head. Good steaks on the glass. A bit of earthiness.

The smell contains citrus rind and a light Belgian yeast-like bite.

Biting flavor with little malt for a base. More citrus rind on the tongue with a black pepper finish. Thin to neutral body with an accentuating effervescence. Long lemon-pepper aftertaste.
