On tap at the brewery: Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, and resin. Taste is more of the same with the citrus up front and resin on the back end. Light to medium body, decent carbonation, nice beer.

Can drunk 2/22/15
Frothy white head tops a lightly hazy pale yellow body.
Very enticing aroma, tons of juicy, fruity hops and a strong citric finish. Playful base malts bounce off but help defray some of the acids while crackers and light yeast dryness dull the finish somewhat. No alcohol noted or other flaws.
Stiff carbonation and tons of lemon and sugar cookies up front, leading to tangerines, grapefruits and light, ever-so-slightly scratchy, attenuated malts. With warming, the carbonation softens and more of the sparse maltiness emerges, helping to add a touch more balance, but by then the beer is mostly gone. Quite drinkable despite all the dryness and blandness on account of the delicious hop flavors. I feel like all of my Night Shift IPA/DIPA ratings say the same thing....

Small, white head from the pour out of the can. Good ring lace after each sip. Whitish (from the cloudiness) gold color.
Prickly, piney hop aroma. Lots of grapefruit and citrus rind as well.
Starts smooth with a decent pale malt base. The bitterness is straight forward and leans on the harsh side. Long, long aftertaste as one might expect. The body is as expected with a mildly elevated carbonation level. Borderline extreme.

12 oz. can, canned 2/20/2015, thanks for this super fresh sample Willrunforbeer. Hazy gold color with thinner head and retention. Aroma is fresh fruit and grass. Mild grain.
Flavor is bright. Tropical fruit upfront backed by a solid amount of grain and light pale malts. The middle to the finish has grapefruit and a light grassy and pine hop finish. The fruit shows up again after the swallow. Really nice.
