Parish Ghost in the Machine

Parish Brewing Co, Broussard, LA

Welcome to the future.  Our collective human consciousness, or Ghost in the Machine, has gained a tolerance for hops beyond what mankind has ever known before.  This double india pale ale is the necessary outcome.  

8% ABV

Hazy gold in color with a nose of citrus fruit.  Fruity with bitterness in the background.  Both elements mesh well together and seamless from start to finish.  Like a laser beam: fruit and bitterness do not vary across the palate.  If you like Parish Envie you will like this beer.  We absolutely get why people love this beer.

We have speculated that this beer is so popular because Parish limits supply to create demand for a Double IPA.  Like the McRib: Macdonald’s only comes out with it for “limited time” only.  If it was a regular menu item people would not line up to get one.

We wandered into a Whole Foods and saw a 4-pack on the shelves and decided to take a chance.  We are glad that the beer did not disappoint, but we are still wondering if it is worth all the hype.  Hats off to Parish!

Would we get this beer again?  Yes

Would we get a 4-pack?  Yes
