Night Shift One Hop This Time is a perfect beer for the beer connoisseur to get his hops kick or for an eager amateur to strengthen their understanding of how different hops taste. The concept is quite simple, the same beer, but made with a different hop upon each release - the can will say the name of the hop right on it. Working this way, the brewers out there in Everett, MA have given us all limitless delicious cans of beer and hundreds of opportunities for flavor adventure.
Considering the entire concept behind this beer series is to study and learn about different hops, you must pour this into a glas for full respect and appreciation. This series is somewhere between a classic American IPA and the modern, hazy Northereastern style IPA. It pours a cloudy, but not completely opaque yellow with a pillowy white head. It’s an unfiltered beer, being sure to leave as much of the pure hop loveliness in each can. The aroma will vary depending on which edition is in your hand, but expect big notes of anything from pine needles to citrus zest to mangoes to grass. The flavor is pure hops. The malt backbone is very light, allowing the green flowers to shine, and the hops are added at a very late moment in the process putting the aroma and flavor over bitterness.
Night Shift One Hop This Time is a fun beer to practice your food pairings. Each hop having its own flavor profile, it is up to you to decide what dish will pair best with each release. Prepare for a fun night by setting up a platter of some favorite cheeses, meats, crackers, and accoutrements. Take a sip, take a bite, repeat. Plan a party around pairings and entertain your friends, testing their palates while attemping to create the perfect pairing.
