12oz bottle Mosaic 5/23/17 poured into a tulip

Look: Golden straw in color; juicy opaque with an inch of fluffy white head
Smell: Grassy up front that develops into a sweet candied fruit aroma of mango and blueberry
Taste: Muted resemblance of the nose with some green onion, orange, grapefruit juice, crushed pineapple, slight citrus rind at the swallow and a faint biscuit flavor from the malt
Feel: Lighter body than it appears, but creamy enough for an APA. Slight slickness.
Overall: A great showcase of Mosaic hops. Huge aroma bursting from the pour. It packs loads of flavor for 5.8%. It finishes somewhat drier than the appearance and nose indicate, but no question an incredible Mosaic hopped APA perfect for easy drinking.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Look: pours a gorgeous hazy light yellow orange. Looks like juice
Smell: citrus-y hoppy goodness, zesty
Taste: interesting. Great citrus juiciness that transitions to piney hoppiness. And the pine taste is pretty good and I traditionally dislike that hop flavor. Both are fighting for dominance...but neither wins. The flavors seems to disapate into nothing. No piney or floral/citrus aftertaste.
Feel: medium body, fits
Overall: smells really good and then tasting, it seems like your on a trip to taste that amazing smell BUT the pine and citrus fights back and forth, tire themselves out and you don't really get to that amazing taste that it seems you're heading towards. The flavour you get is great, but fleeting and it always seems like you're on the cusp of getting the major flavor but then you don't lol

So it has a lot a like, only the smell I love and nothing to dislike or hate.

(Also, I see this at all my specs and Total wine. So much for retired ha)

This is an excellent APA. The DDH made a huge difference with this.

Parish does an outstanding job with all of its beer!

In Laurel.
B.A. indicates that this is already a retired offering.
LOOK: Pours a highly hazy, pretty much opaque pale straw yellow with a bold white head with decent retention.
AROMA: Floral hops of grapefruit peel and citrus abound. Breads, biscuits also present.
TASTE: More of the same, a little sour, plenty of bread malts.
FEEL: The sour effect at the end is significant and you immediately reach for another sip.
Superb!

Fresh on draft at Loosa, Tuscaloosa AL.

Nice hazy golden pour, with a half finger head of creamy foam and heavy, even lace as it settles

Fairly subtle tropical fruit balances a predominance of grassy hops and sweet malt. Even getting a little essence of milk sugar, which for some reason I’ve been getting more often from hazy pales on the nose. Weird but I like it.

Piney, grassy hops greet you first, a potent but very tasty pale that settles into a more mellow, citrus-forward DDH pale. Well balanced and very refreshing.

Smooth, juicy, no unpleasant lingering bitterness. Very soft, low carb.

Thanks Greg N! Had from bottle dated 9/06/18 (Wine World Destin)

Wow, great haze bomb! Love this beer, pours the color of OJ mixed with some sort of bodily fluid; tons of cheese rind and bread on the pallet, would drink over & over!

reviewing this here, as i am not sure what/if single hopped variant it might have been, the menu simply read double dry hopped, and so here we are, retired or not. somehow even more murky than the original, which was striking enough, but this one looks more dull despite the blanket of thick white head on top and the fine lace rings it leaves. aroma here is almost too juicy, tons of fruits pop out, pineapple from the can, overripe pear, orange, and grapefruit, as well as some bitter pine, its attractive, and one sniff already tells me what its going to taste like. the hop nuances seem to compete with each other for the attention of my tastebuds, and its not totally groovy at the end, like a war of attrition where all combatants are too fatigued at the end to really be their full selves, if that makes sense. the original seemed really heavily dry hopped, and this might be excessive (although i see a 4x version listed here, good heavens!). what is gained in the nose is expensed in the flavor, and its a little more kitchen sinky, heavy, and for just a second harsher than the original. great beer overall, this all sounds way too critical, its downright fantastic stuff, but i would not choose this again over normal envie i dont reckon...

Doing a side by side with regular Envie, the DDH is opaque maize with a very large cream-colored froth settling unevenly and convexly leaving tons of coral, fuzzy lace.

Smell is creamier than regular, like vanilla orange, but still with that spice of pink peppercorn, pine and cracker.

Taste is orange lemonade with more pine and a little amaretto-spiked wood, mango and mint.

Crisp with a bigger froth on the palate and a drier finish than regular.

Maybe a little more unique than Envie, but I enjoyed regular a bit more.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip
Bottled on 6/29/17
El Dorado hopped

A- pours a hazy golden orange color with a two-finger head that has great retention long after the pour and leaves some lacing behind

S- citrus forward hop aroma with notes of candied orange peel, orange marmalade & apricots. There are also some white peppery aromas, as well as several other fruity elements. Malt is slightly bready but toned down

T- a combination of juicy and peppery citrus notes up front gives flavors of grapefruit peel, orange jam & tangerine. Mid-palate gives notes of fresh grass as well as some peppery notes. The finish continues with more zesty orange notes

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into a crisp foamy finish with a semi-dry linger

O- high drinkability and well balanced

Never had a beer from Parish before as I can't even remember how I ended up with this! I know I traded for it recently as the date on the neck of the bottle read 5/23 of this year with "MOSAIC" written above it. Liked this beer a lot but wasn't sure as to why the ratings for this were so lofty. This was a great beer and incredibly smooth but didn't measure up to other hallmark Pale Ales that I've had before.

Not a bad pour to this as the liquid was a nice goldenrod hue with plenty of haze to it. The head was sufficient and so was the lacing as there was a thick ring along the top of my pint glass that flowed down along with other rings along the back of my glass. Plenty of Mosaic, melon, sour grass, and citrus rind in the muted nose with all of those being present in the taste as well. Grass and citrus juice came through in the taste but this felt quite reserved for something that was double dry hopped. Plenty of bread in the malt helped to keep this level and a low but fair amount of carbonation ensured that the flavors lingered for just enough time without sticking around too long.

The amount of alcohol in this was spot-on as well, keeping this beer light and nearly session-like. I couldn't taste the double dry-hopping as the hop bitterness was not prominent, but there was plenty to like here from start to finish. I hope to get more from Parish to see what they're about, though this was a pleasant first impression. This would be a must-have if I resided in the Pelican State!

Hazy in color. Nose is fruity as is the taste. The finish is fruity, but goes away almost as quickly as it hits. This beer is tasty and refreshing that would go down well ....anytime.

Envie Double Dry Hopped (Mosaic) has a thick, creamy, white head, a yellow-gold, opaque appearance and some glass lacing. Aroma is of juice and white bread, and the flavor is of sugary juice (apricot?), white bread, and mellow hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is pretty heavy, and Parish Envie Double Dry Hopped (Mosaic) finishes sweet and candy like.
