Tastes like a grapefruit soda pop. Nothing about it makes me think "beer" much less a true pale ale.

Pours a hazy lighter golden color with a nice fluffy white head, bout one and a half fingers thick. Nice lacing and a soapy film across, great looking beer. Aroma of pineappley citrus and herbal hop notes, with a similar taste but with a lot more grapefruit which is welcomed. A bit of a bite in the back from the carbonation and a smooth bitterness that is making me grab another bottle. Good stuff.

From a 12 oz bottle into my Sam Adams “perfect pint” glass, hazy yellow-orange color with thick off white head which quickly fades to a moderate amount of clinging lace and a collar. Nose of distinct, sweet citrus like grapefruit. In the mouth it’s surprisingly bitter up front, a dry hops presence quickly replaced by a much more middle-of the road malt counter-note with a medium dose of the grapefruit-citrus hops promised on the nose. In the mouth it’s thin, crisp, and quenching with a moderate to slightly fizzy amount of carbonation which accentuates the hoppiness. Overall, a solid APA though a bit of a letdown after trying the citrus bomb that is the Parish Bloom IPA. I won’t reflect the comparison in my scoring, but let’s say I’m intrigued to try more from Parish.

I tried this at Beer Fest on Bourbon Street. It poured a clear golden with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had citrus peel and pine. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink and had same notes as scent. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a thin foamy head. Head retention is mild. Lacing is good. Does have a nice juicy citrus aroma. Orange with a little bit of piney resin. Taste is not as juicy. It is actually more acidic like orange juice but a more bitter type of orange juice. Not sure if this is representative or due to bottle being over 2 months old. I hope it is the latter. It has a sprucy piney taste at the end. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Poursa very hazy pale straw yellow with a dominate all white head that has superior retention and excellent side glass lace.
AROMA: Citrusy hops, grapefruit, spicy pepper and bread dough.
TASTE: A great balance of malts. Bread malts are creamy. Hops, citrus with a nice drying subtle bitter bite at the finish.

For the style I don't think there is a better APA on the market. I haven't ran across one that could come close to the quality of this well balanced beer. If you are a lover of the craft and wanna get away from the dilly dilly crap at parties, this is a very sessional one that delivers the citrus bite of ripe orange rind with a light hop kick on the back end to balance off the sweet malty backbone. Big thumbs up to parish for this great little gem.
