Farmhouse IPAFarmhouse IPA

Brewed by:
Parish Brewing Company
Louisiana, United States

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Parish Farmhouse IPA is the best of both old and new world styles: A bold blend of Franco-Belgian yeast and American hops. Brewed with Belgian pilsener and rye, the delicate malt profile is refined yet rustic. Pour gently as this beer is intentionally effervescent, made possible with bottle-refermentation in our cellar. Santé!

a - poured a big, rocky, bubbly, three-fingers thick off-white head into a snifter that left thick lacing and sheeting throughout. the body was a hazy amber color.
s - yeasty, clove, grassy hops.
t - rye comes through as spiciness with some grassy hops thrown in.
m - medium and coating.
o - this was graciously given to me by a fan of fairhope brewing who had traveled from louisiana while i was working in the taproom. my first parish beer and i thoroughly enjoyed it.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle my son gave me, it started to foam as soon as I removed the cap, never a good sign in my experience. It took several minutes for the foam in the glass to go down enough for me to get to the liquid. The brew is very cloudy and amber colored, obviously highly carbonated with a fat head. The flavor is slightly sweet, with a honey character. Hop presence is sort of grassy, more like a British IPA than an American IPA. Glad I didn't pay $12 for this bottle, not worth it IMHO

A: medium orange, bone white head of several fingers. super carbed in appearance.

S: spicy yeast notes, white pepper, flowers, cut grass, bread crust.

T: spicy hops, touch of pine, grass and herbs, pepper, yeasty esters, touch of sweet maltiness, quite bitter.

M: effervescent, prickly carbonation initially, but tames after a few minutes, medium body.

O: good Saison qualities, good IPA qualities and balanced well.

This was just released today!
Carbonation was high, had to let it sit for a few minutes after pouring for the head to stop rising.
Smell: citrusy hops and saison yeast.
Taste: the balance leans a little more towards the IPA side, probably because it is super fresh.
Solid representation of this trendy new style.
C'est Bon!
