Whenever we go out of state, I try to pick up some Night Shift beers for reviews. Let’s see how this one was.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Night Shift was founded in 2012 by a trio of friends with a shared passion for homebrewing. What began as a nocturnal hobby has now grown bigger than our wildest dreams – from our brewery and Taproom in Everett, to our distributing business, to our Owl’s Nest beer gardens, to coffee roasting and our latest location on Boston’s Lovejoy Wharf. With this growing ‘family’ in place, we exist to always create better for our staff, customers, and community. We are a proudly independent business – our three founders collectively own just over 80% of the business, with the remaining 20% owned by close friends and family. We maintain a relentless focus on three values – accessibility, integrity, and evolution. Our family of business branches continues to grow every year – learn more about each below!”
Random: I still haven’t made it to Night Shift yet.
The beer poured with a two finger, white head. It dissipated rather quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy yellow color with no visible carbonation due to color. The nose had the usual tropical fruit, specifically pineapple and mango. The taste was on the lighter side with mango and pineapple and a grainy malt note as well. The body was very light, almost watery. It had a lighter than expected amount of carbonation. The finish was quick with tropical fruit. This beer was alright, but didn’t “wow” me.
