12 oz bottle poured into a TEKU glass. Bottled on 2/2/16, so still pretty fresh.
Look: Absolutely gorgeous, super hazy glowing tangerine orange, with a finger of bright white head that fades rather quickly with subtle lacing.
Smell: Deliciously juicy! The citrus hits you right in the nose, juicy sweet oranges and tangerines, a little grapefruit and lemon, some tropical fruit in there too like mango and papaya. Makes my mouth water! Can’t wait to enjoy this one.
Taste: Wow. The taste follows the nose so nicely and gives me exactly what I’m wanting and expecting. The citrus and tropical fruit is so juicy and creamy, orange and mango and some sweet dry white wine characteristics. Very little soft bitterness that doesn’t linger and finishes quickly making me want more and making my mouth water.
Feel: Medium carbonation and light body, incredibly smooth and juicy and soft, finishes quickly and dry and so very drinkable.
Overall: I haven’t tried the original recipe or Ghost to compare, but this new one (Baby Ghost) is a winner. Super juicy and drinkable, a nice citrus forward clean Pale Ale. I absolutely love this beer.

Amazing APA right hur! How this little gem received an 87 is mind boggling. Especially when Pseudosue got rated 100. I would drink this over PS any day of the week. Citrus forward, smooth, and delicious. This belongs somewhere in the 93-95 range imo.

Poured 12oz bottle into ale glass. It pours a very beautiful copper color with a very nice head. Nicely hoppy with good citrus notes. Good bitterness. It has a good malt backbone with out being overly sweet. Very good aroma and excellent mouthfeel. This is my Favorite Louisiana beer. This is my go to beer.

Got a sneak peek bottle of this today from a friend. This is very similar to Great Raft's Commotion APA. I would say this is a little bit better. Looks amazing in the glass, and smells of citrus and dank. Taste follows the nose. Overall, the best APA in Louisiana imo.

This beer has become one of the best beers in Louisiana. With the recipe change and the availability of the beer it is easily my favorite. I would recommend it to everyone to try and it compares easily to Zombie Dust

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.

Outstanding clean hop flavor without being too bitter. Piney fragrance, sharp pleasant taste. Copper color and moderate carbonation. Terrific beer to enjoy while watching the New Orleans Saints win their last game in the regular season. Good job Parish!

12 oz bottle into a tulip, 1/25/16, so almost 2 months old.

L. Nice orange with slight yellow tint especially at the bottoms of the glass. 2 finger fluffy head with moderate lacing. Full haze.
S. Nice mix of tropical fruits, mango and orange with a touch of piney hops.
T. Follows the nose almost or perfectly. Lots of tropical fruit with a light bitterness finish.
F. Lighter ish mouth feel with nice carbonation. Very crushable.

Glad I finally tipped this one back, been sitting in my fridge for over a month.
