Bottle pour at the pre-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and slight herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Poured into a snifter. This one was hard as hell to find. Got it at Acquistapace's in Covington, LA.

A: Opaque golden. A one finger foamy white head that slowly dissipates to a foamy ring. Thick lacing.

S: Grapefuit dominates followed by piney hops.

T: Smooth, creamy. Low bitterness. Follows nose with a wonderful balance. Citrus and grapefruit. Juicy with light malts. Semi sweet. Just terrific.

M: Medium to heavy with thick, creamy carbonation.

O: Worth the hype, worth the search. I hope Parish makes more of this Ghostly Machination. Recommended.

Pour at the Ithaca Luminous bottle release.

Pours a hazy dark orange, with a one inch fizzy head and a little bit of lacing.

Smells grapefruity and piney, with a little bit of orange and honey.

The taste is pretty similar. Fairly bitter, from the grapefruit and the pine. Mostly dry, except for a little bit of honey sweetness from the malt. The hop flavor is really nice, but not overpowering.

Medium bodied, crisp dry mouthfeel, well carbonated.

A nice little surprise, have never heard of this one before.

Parish Brewing Company - Ghost In The Machine, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Look - Pours a hazy orange amber with a sizable foamy head that retains well and leaves lots of spotty lacing.

Smell - Aroma is some grapefruit but primarily piney hoppy. Nice hop forward aroma.

Taste - Rich malt body with a piney, resiny, and then juicy fruit hop overlay. Smooth, nice variety of hops chosen here.

Mouthfeel - Heavy-medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Some malt warmth. Rests piney bitter. Quite the hop juice.

Overall - This is a terrific DIPA. A king of pine but there is some citrus in there as well. Very juicy!

A - Pours a hazy orange and a bit of gold with a two finger eggshell head. I'd say this is a great looking beer.

S - Juicy, citrus hops and a dank pine aroma. The malt is there, but not overdone. The smell makes me just want to sniff it.

T - Piney hops that roll into a grapefruit rind and then a juicy citrus ending. The bitter hops are there from beginning to end and it's not overly malty.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Really a juicy beer.

O - Very proud this was brewed a state away and I was able to pick it up. Easily one of the best DIPAs I've had in a long while. Well done Parish!
