Tallboy can via Facebook trade. Poured a delicate looking super opaque bright golden straw with a fluffy bright white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, papaya, guava, light citrus, juicy, grains. Flavor is a little more citrus you and less tropical, light grains. Delicate body with a softer mouthfeel and average carbonation.

Sampled at Julios local craft beer festival. One of several Nightshift brews sampled at the fest. Every one of them was solid. Good stuff and cool looking owls on every can. Thanks Nightshift.

Can drunk 11/17/16.
Hazy honey-golden with a large white head that falls slowly to cover.
Tight, sweaty grapefruit, marmalade, melon and light pine with extremely sparse cracker-like malts behind. Thankfully itís not overdone on the pine. If I didnít have the utmost faith in this series, Iíd be very worried about a dry, very bitter, pine and grapefruit flavor.
And indeed it is dry, but the citrus is softened by a very chewy, biscuity malt texture. Tons of citrus, through and through. Even though the texture is soft, thereís almost zero sweetness so itís still a bit difficult to drink. Grapefruit rind lingers with biscuity grains. Sure enough, as it approaches room temp and breathes more, sweetness emerges more and more. Not my favorite morph by any means, but I appreciate how well controlled the acidity is for such high alpha hop blends and hops.
