BEER INFO

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Parish Envie is brewed with loads of citrusy American hops to create an assertive, yet balanced American Pale Ale. We've used sweet caramel malts to mesh harmoniously with a dominant hop taste and aroma. Take a sip, embrace the hops, and repeat.

Pale yellow body, slightly hazy, half inch of white head that leaves some sticky residue on the snifter. Aromas of floral hops, grain, earth, bread, perhaps a note of cracked pepper. Nice flavor, well-balanced (and I mean that in a good way). Juicy citrus notes with mild to medium hop bitterness. Nice.

Appearance: dark orange in color with a 1" head that lasts a long time. Nice lace sticks to the glass.

Smell: caramel, some citrus, and hop aromas rise from the glass.

Taste: caramel, mild grapefruit and orange citrus, some pear, and a moderate hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Crisp from start to finish.

Overall: a very easy to drink and enjoyable APA that is nicely refreshing.

Received as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice slightly hazy dark golden hue with a two finger white head that slumped down to a nice quarter inch thick, creamy blanket. Pretty nice.

S - Aromas of citrus, faint pine, bready malts, malt sugars, nicely hoppy.

T - Taste is a bit of a let down, compared to the nose. Some how, there is some booze on this, faint hop oil and pine, light orangy citrus, some malt sweetness. Good bitter finish. The more I drink this, the better it becomes and the more it opens up.

M - Mouthfeel is actually pretty good! Nice carbonation, very crisp, super sessionable.

O - Overall, my favourite beer from Louisiana yet. Goes down easy with alot of orange to it, very nice.

On tap at The Avenue. From notes. Reviewed New Year's Eve 2016.
3.75/3.5/4/4/3.25
Hazy clear hay.
Smells vegetal and citrusy.
It tastes lovely and sweet. Bit of wheat malts. Not many hops (at all), but a mild mineral bitterness on the end.
It's ok, but doesn't leave much impression.
