Bottled 2 days ago and is very well balanced! You know it's a great beer when your fiance doesn't make her typical "yuck" face.

Bottled late last year

A: poured into a tulip to a nice golden orange with a finger and a half of dense off white head that retains well and leaves decent lacing
S: smells of juicy tropical fruit, caramel sweetness and pine resin
T: taste is resinous pine, tropical fruits, citrus rind, and caramel sweetness. swallow is a nice piney hop kick with more tropical fruits and a slight lingering sweetness
M: this beer has a moderate amount of weight on the palate with slightly pricking carbonation. the finish on the beer is oily and refreshing
O: This is a great DIPA. the complexity of flavors and hop presence are rock solid and the beer is very well made. Definitely one to try if you like hops. Very nice balance and the hops while prevalent aren't excessively abrasive.

Wow! Extremely hard to get my hands on this beer, but found myself near the brewery and stopped by. The smell, oh my god the smell! Super piney dank happy perfection. Medium body, wonderful citrus/resin flavor. Did I mention it smelled great? 8.5% will sneak up on you with the fantastic drink ability.

Instantly my favorite beer. No distribution to my home Parish which is a shame.

Was expecting more out of this. Not much aroma, tastes like it has promise, but fades quickly

Very proud this beer is poured in my home state. Reminds me of the beers I've enjoyed in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Parish has certainly captured the art of the American double IPA. Resinous, delicious, savory and long lasting while still refreshing.
