L- Beautifully milky opaque haze look. An almost fruit juice appearance that is in some ways mat colored. No clearance whatsoever. Nice rocky and healthy head erupts after pouring.
S- Sweet, sugary pine and citrus is immediately present. Some mild lemon, as well as darker stone fruits are also there. Very tropical. Nice, yet more muted than expected aroma.
T- The flavor follows the nose. This is an absolute juice bomb. Sweet as hell with a stone/tropical fruit backing flavor wise. There's an expected alcoholic boozeyness due to the ABV and nature of the style, but I don't mind–it complements the tart and tropical flavor.
F- Extremely heavy mouthfeel. Almost syrupy. A sipper for sure. Chewy.
O- One of the, if not the most, interesting Imperial IPA I've ever had. This was a New England styled imperial, triple IPA. Do these even exist? Whatever the case, it was enjoyable.Quite a good beer from Louisiana. They know what they're doing at Parish.

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.

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

Had from a Dec 2018 bootle on 3/16/19

Moreso than most, Parrish beers MUST be consumed fresh. They change faster with age than any I’ve ever had.

With that said this beer is just incredibly delicious, even at almost 3 mos old. The body and mouthfeel are just second to none. Easily the best triple I’ve ever encountered. Well done Parrish- and thanks Greg!

A winner to compliment ghost in the machine. True hazy new england style ipa quenches thirst admirably on the bayou or at the beach

On tap at Premium Draught, one of the first kegs I have seen of this in the Houston market.

A: Pours a nearly opaque turbid, murky yellow/orange color. A white head forms and rises to about two fingers. That sticks around for a minute with light lace.
S: I certainly get the pineapple/mango/papaya fruits going up front. Though seem faded and "dirty" if that makes sense. Green and veggie like as well. Everything fades after a quick minute and nothing lingers.
T: Follows the nose with that fruit mixture. Again, not very vibrant and just kind of blah. Green and veggie like again. Some caramel malts in there, and nothing lingers.
M/O: Moderate to low carbonation. I guess you can call it "soft" but it is annoyingly nondescript and muddled with a dirty feel that I am not liking. Maybe a touch alcoholic, but not bad considering the ABV. Just not very vibrant in anyway for me.

This is a let down. I have never been the biggest fan of the NEIPA style in the first place. Though Parish at least is the one brewery that I felt made examples that I could come back to. To me, I'm not getting any great hop punch, no vibrancy, and what is there finishes too quickly.
