Juice bomb that would make Tropicana proud, with an ABV that doesn't present itself until you're rinsing the glass. Exercise due caution....back-to-back episodes will have a deleterious effect on balance.

This is an excellent Triple IPA!!! I am never disappointed by Parish Brewing. They do a fantastic job with everything they brew. I think it is better than Ghost In a Machine!!

About what you would expect from a Parish Triple IPA.. That's not a bad thing!
If you like Ghost in the Machine, this is its more mature older brother (Batch 3, btw)

A ton of stuff going on here. I keep describing it as "indulgent."
It pours an opaque yellow with a lacy white head - highly aromatic, less floral and more tropical as a DDH NEIPA should be.
It tastes and feels Incredibly juicy - indulgently so, as I said. To compare it go Ghost in the Machine, there's a lot of the same thing going on but with more of a malt floor- you can feel the malt trying to rise up but it just cant fight the extra hops. Each sip is bursting with citrus juiciness but it's got more complexity and depth than Ghost. The bitterness simply rides the wave, sitting pleasantly but very present on your tongue.
If you can get it and enjoy Ghost or Cocodrie, this is a very pleasant but not to distant departure, at the same price per bottle

Date: Bottled on 12/10/18, tried on 12/26/18.

Appearance: Super thick, almost chewy orange juice haze with a white head that reduces to nothing quickly.

Aroma: Lots of bright, sweet orange and tangerine juice, loads of bitter green hops, citric acid, papaya, pineapple, vanilla, peaches, and sweet fruity bready malts backing the whole thing up.

Taste: Sweet tropical fruits are big up front with plenty of orange along with papaya, lemon, melon, and some strawberry. There is also a decent amount of straight raw honey taste here and I get mild peaches and creme sweetness also. Both the hops and malts are quite multifaceted, wow. Everytime I think there are no more flavors to be found here, another one pops out. It also almost seems like this one has been double dry hopped as well, freshly cut grass, lemon, man there is just hops for days here, some powdery dank resinous pine as well. Basil, there is big spicy f***ing basil flavor in here, and it works! The sweet biscuit like malts are here also, but they settle nicely in the background rather than assert as a main feature. As it warms some more pine like aromas and a small hop bite and some additional bitterness emerge. Also the berry flavors from the nose really begin to assert themselves a lot on the taste at room temp. This one is more on the sweet side than I traditionally like my IPAs to be, but for a beer this well done I will happily make an exception. No real hint of the 9%, just some warming and the mouthfeel is full and very creamy. This is without a doubt one of the most flavor packed, multilayered, and well made beers I have been lucky enough to find.

I'm colorblind and my wife wasn't around to help, so while I know it can't possibly be right, it looked green to me. Probably just like a light orange or something, but I don't know shit.

Smell was more citrus than I had expected, very hoppy w/ sweet malt.

I got some spice and some citrus, felt like I should be drinking it near a Christmas tree.

Mouth feel was smooth and on the heavy end of the spectrum, but not like HEAVY heavy.

Overall: solid beer, not their best offering but it drinks right this time of year.
