I have had this numerous times, at tastings and at least once when traveling through LA. Now Parish has finally hit Houston...

A: Pours a cloudy, almost opaque golden/yellow color. A two finger white head forms with good retention and lace left behind.
S: Kind of green and veggie like, then nondescript fruit/juicy hops round out the nose. Fairly enjoyable, if one noted.
T: Juicy hops, whenever I can't exactly pin down the fruit flavor, it always seems to remind me of overripe melons. maybe a bit citrus like. There is an odd sweetness that is either from caramel malts, or the "juicy" fruit like hops. Again, this feels a bit green and veggie like as well.
M/O: A medium body with moderate carbonation. A touch astringent and muddled. Though, overall, enjoyable for a pint.

Kind of a tweener of a NEIPA and hoppy Pale Ale. Not bad at all, the juiciness seems a bit nondescript with some green hop character. I can see myself getting a pint of this every once in a while when I am out and about.

Nice chewy and hearty pale ale. Bigger than it is.

A - Pours a cloudy golden orange with a one finger creamy white head. Tons of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is tangerine, orange peel and grapefruit.

T - The taste is pineapple, tangerine, orange peel, grapefruit and light piney hops.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a crisp finish.

O - This is a pretty solid pale ale. Nice mix of bright citrus and floral hops.

Great session APA.

If available, always buy the bottled version which is actually brewed by Parish

Canned 05/09/18, why do Alabama beer distributors not restock their labels?? Not sure if this will be prime.

It does pour a really nice deep golden yellow with that beautiful haze. Got a lot of frothy head on it, about three fingers that bubble away slowly and cling to the glass desperately.

Bright aromas, with a zesty citrus that comes forward quickly and balance a sweet maltiness that could only have pushed its way further to the forefront during its 3 and a half months in the store fridge. The nose tails out with a grassy, earthy aroma. Pretty nice actually, fairly complex and inviting.

Actually held up pretty well, I think the consistent refrigeration helped preserve it. Still a suspiciously present maltiness, but it’s more distracting on the nose than the flavors. Citrus comes through, hardly any bitterness (obviously a rarity for APAs). Sweet, subtle hints of honey and a floral backbone that compliments the full experience.

The body is a good light viscosity , with a subtle but present carb and a film that I usually notice that intensifies the longer it sits. Still a light, crisp Pale Ale that has held up well and gave me what I’ve come to expect from Parish, fresh or not.

Hazy, light orange gold color, it really does look like orange juice, with small white cap.

Aroma of piney, citrusy hops that are very fresh and vibrant.

Taste is hop forward in abundance with very small bitterness. Hops are sharp but have some depth and come across as brightly citrusy with any overripe citrus aspects. Simple flavors but well balanced.

Light-medium texture with balancing carbonation.

For a Pale Ale this one has a surprisingly low malt presence, for me at least, but I don't think malt is the point here. Hops are showcased and they do a good job of it while keeping things in balance.

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