Poured into a large snifter glass. The beer pours hazy orange copper with a very thick white head that dissipates slowly. The initial pour comes with a lot of head due to the bottle conditioning. There are some visible tiny bubbles in the beer. Some lacing is left behind on the glass as the head recedes. The beer smells of bready and sweet malts, citrus and floral hop notes, and spiciness. The first sip brings some bready and sweet malts and the hop bitterness hits in the back end. The hop flavors are like citrus and quite floral. The hop bitteness is more like bitter orange. The body is medium with strong carbonation. The finish is dry and the carbonation helps tame the aftertaste. The drinkability is very high. This is an excellent beer.

Parish Brewing Company - Farmhouse IPA

Acquired through trade and shared with two friends.

Look - Pours a hazy caramel with an orange hue. Massive bubbly head. Minimal lacing. Heavily carbonated.

Smell - Typical Saison but with a sweet malt and a subtle resiny hop on top.

Taste - Sweet malt in front, then sour yeast in the middle, finally some citrus hops come in after. Sweet and sour, quite unique.

Mouthfeel - Sticky hop resin and sour Belgian-style yeast on the sides. Good drinkability. Slightly alcohol warming. Medium bodied.

Overall - Solid brew, interesting fusion of a Belgian, Saison, and a malty IPA.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle split into 16oz Beligan Tulips.

A - Toasted honey body, HUGE off white head mountainous, magnificent lacing. But gotta be patient to let this one settle.

S/T - Orange peel and spicy esters, light citrusy hop character that comes out more on the taste, touch of pine. Bit of bubble gum flavor I missed on the nose as well.

M - Super carbed, and light as a feather. Dangerously drinkable.

O - One of the better Belgian IPAs I've been fortunate enough to try.

4.16/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Aroma: Phenolic with some grainy sweet malt aroma and some rye. Floral hops come through at first with some herbal character.

Appearance: Deep golden and hazy. Big rocky head that fades and displays lacing. Creamy and vivacious appearance.

Flavor: Malt is of clean grainy sweet pilsner and spicy rye. Good balance of phenolic, firm bitterness and malts. Floral and fruity hops are forward and some orange peelish hop character in finish. Some herbal character.

Mouth feel: Medium to medium full body and quite lively with it's carbonation. Bitterness lingers pleasantly dry.

Overall Impression: Big on hop and big on carbonation with quite a bit of spice. Very creative line drawn through a number of traditional styles. Quite well done and appropriate given where Parish Brewing is located. I love it. The big bombers from Parish are delivering every time they're released.

Thanks to mandalore84 on reddit for this one. Poured into an Irish imperial pint glass as conservatively as possible.

Appearance - I have never experienced a more lively beer. For lack of a better description, it exploded in the glass, looking like it was boiling. Once it settled, it was a lovely hazy, opaque orange color

Smell - My favorite part of this beer. It has a wonderful sour smell that is completely refreshing and attractive. I don't pick up any hops at all

Taste - sour and hoppy, but neither is overdone. There is no sweetness from the alcohol whatsoever. There is nothing remarkable about it, but it is very solid

Mouthfeel - Carbonation! It has a lot of bite and finishes very dry

Overall - a really great beer for a warm summer day. It is a good mix of styles and relatively well done.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750 ml bottle to tulip. $13. Parish's second big-bottle release, after Grand Reserve. No freshness date.

A: Very handsome opaque gold. Enormous head takes a while to settle in, dramatic lacing. Also: a nice bottle label, so a few style points.

S: Primarily citrus, especially orange, so American-style hopping is obvious. Cotton candy, a little booze. Also a trace of something earthy/salty.

T: Nothing earthy as nose suggests. A bright citrus taste that mingles with a dry bitterness on back end.

M: Effervescent. Dry. Bitterness doesn't linger.

O: A totally solid, straight-ahead Belgian IPA, the only one I'm aware of being made in the Deep South. Between this and Grand Reserve, Parish clearly knows how to step outside the drearily familiar pathway of hot-weather session beers so ubiquitous down here. It's expensive, but I'll support this endeavor.

This was just released today!
Carbonation was high, had to let it sit for a few minutes after pouring for the head to stop rising.
Smell: citrusy hops and saison yeast.
Taste: the balance leans a little more towards the IPA side, probably because it is super fresh.
Solid representation of this trendy new style.
C'est Bon!

4/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - Pours orange in color with hues of amber, very opaque and has a billowing paper white head. This is one that even if you pour slowly, it'll still have a volcano of carbonation.

S - Hay, barnyard aromas (minus the feces), floral with an apple/pear type fruit coming through and peppery yeast.

T - Fruity/floral taste to start off and has good yeast coming through with light malts. There's an ever so slight tartness on the end and finishes is with some bitterness.

M - Easy drinking, dry, effervescent and very carbonated.

O - They really mixed both styles well. The IPA shines through and so does the saison qualities, but neither overpower one another.
