Envie an American Pale Ale from Parish Brewery in South Louisiana

Aroma the hops on the label foretell the moderate citrus, spice, floral and mild pine notes from the dry hopping

Appearance. Clear golden pale pour with. 1.5-2 finger white foamy head with decent lacing

Taste a mild malty start with a mild to moderate spicy, citrusy/floral bitter finish Moderately hoppy

Mouthfeel crisp moderately carbonated finish clean

Overall. A very nice American Pale Ale. Went very nice paired with my Supreme pizza. My palate is expanding enjoying more hoppy beers

I had to re-review this beer since the recipe change with the Nov. 2015 batch. First off, let me say I was a fan of the original Envie. The new recipe, though, boosts this beer up several notches. The beer pours a golden/amber color and leaves a sizeable, modest white head that leaves a good bit of lace. The smells are beautiful! Like it's big brother, GITM, huge grapefruit rind, pineapple, and a slight piney hop presence. Taste follows the nose but still adds a tad of malt character, albeit less than the original recipe. This beer is sooo crushable. Feel is light-medium with a slight bitter finish. Overall, this beer is now as hard to get as Ghost In the Machine. Good thing they are brewing it 2-3 times a month. It is one of those beers now, because of proximity, will stay in my fridge.

Copper color with a thin head. Steady stream of bubbles. Smell upfront is piney, citrussy, bready and caramely. I'm feeling the taste. Not too sweet or malty. Lightly malty base with a bit of an American hop punch in the end. Floral aftertaste. Light bodied and with relaxed carb. This is really drinkable. I could knock back a few while having a huge bowl of chicken and sausage gumbo.

Nice floral and citrus nose. Citrus hop finish. Overall, a little lighter in mouth feel and taste than similar citrus APAs. Still, an extremely drinkable beer -- very nice balance and flavor.

Parish Envie has a medium-to-thick off white head, which rather quickly fades, a hazy, somewhat bubbly, orange appearance, with lots of tiny suspended particles, and a decent lacing sheen left behind. The aroma is of piney hops, sweetness, and bread, and the flavor is of those same elements. The hop bitterness is pleasant and noticeable, but not strong. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Parish Envie finishes semi-dry, sweet, and refreshing. Overall, this is a straightforward pale ale entry and is very mellow and enjoyable.
