COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Perpetual IPA (Imperial Pale Ale, not India Pale Ale). In our constant evolution as a brewery, we’ve developed a drive to meld artisanal and mechanical. Perpetual IPA utilizes our hopback and dry-hopping to engineer a bold Imperial Pale Ale. We’re always testing the boundaries of modern brewing.

Nice citrus aroma with a nice carmel malt backbone. Average regular IPA with a great aroma is the best way I can really describe this one.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. A: Pours a light golden color with perfect clarity, almost like a pilsner. The head is a two finger white color with decent retention, a moderately thick texture, and nice lacing clumps. S: Very hoppy, but with a citric presence, dominated by mango, grapefruit, pineapple, and guava. I can definitely smell the Citra in this one. The malt backbone comes through enough - no more, no less. Really a great smelling IPA. T: Tons of tropical fruits! The opening flavor does nothing to hide the mango assault on the tongue, while the finish does an excellent job of keeping the potential hop bitterness in check. As in the aroma, there’s ’enough’ of a malt backbone to balance/showcase the citric hops without making it seem like just another malty east coast IPA. It’s not super complex, but who cares?! I’d put this up there with Two Hearted and Union Jack - it’s really a fantastic IPA, especially since its fresh. M: Light and spritzy, with a nice lingering citric hop resin. Only the slightest hint of a syrupy texture holds things back faintly - if at all, it’s so amazingly drinkable overall it isn’t an issue, really. O: Wowee. Call it an east coast bias, a fresh bottle, or what have you, but this is one my favorite IPAs on the market right now. I could honestly see myself drinking 3-4 bottles in a session, acid reflux, hellish buzz, and painful hangover be damned. As good as it is from the bottle, this would be orgasmic on tap. BUT MAKE SURE IT’S FRESH! I had an old bottle of this (from the original Fall 2011 batch) and hated it.

rosenbergh (7051) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2012
Draught at the Fulton Grand, Brooklyn, NY.
Clear golden colour with small white head. Mild but intense sweet resiny hops in aroma with some fruitiness. Resiny, fruity and sweet hoppy flavour. Maltiness in the back. Quite simple IIPA. Rather balanced. Bitter hoppy aftertaste.

It’s a wall of fresh hops in aroma and every sip. Golden yellow full bodied 2XIPA. I like this offering from Troegs, surprised I have not tried it until tonight. Dry hopping well blended into this beer.

Sheerbrewing (117) - Athens-Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Pours a clear gold with a medium thick white head. Aroma has nice citrus and clean hop with some minty evergreen. Flavor is bright hops just like aroma would suggest there is a lot of citrus and woody spruce. Overall this is a great ipa lots of hop character at all levels aroma flavor and bitterness. Great ipa.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle: Poured a deep clear blonde color ale with a large foamy white head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of powerful floral aroma with some green hops notes and a light sweet malt base is very well done and very enticing. Taste is dominated by huge floral hops aroma with light green hops notes and very little bitterness with some lightly sweet malt notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. I really enjoyed the floral notes and if I were to compare I would say this is a notch below Heady Topper for floral notes but still ay ahead of most IIPA.

Pours a light orange with minimal white head. Decent tracing as the beer was drank. Taste very fruity, not as hoppy as anticipated. Overall a good beer.

chicowv (459) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - AUG 20, 2012
12 oz bottle: Pours light golden with thick white head and good CO2 release. Aroma of spruce, floral and citrus hops, light caramel malt and some doughy yeast. Taste is amazing with a nice hop profile, well balanced between salty and sweet. Nice medium body, creamy texture and slightly carbonated to give a nice fizz. Very good brew overall with a smooth finish, easy drinking and very tasty.
