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.

Bottle shared by djmiller92. Thanks Dave. The beer is yellow, perhaps slightly orange, with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the tulip glass. The aroma is dominated by citrus and hops. Very nice. The flavor follows suit, with notes of tropical fruit, as well as a citrus and floral presence. Subtle notes of pine are present as well. Alcohol presence is well disguised. Malt is secondary to hops, as it should be. A really tasty IPA from an east coast brewery. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-26-2011

Bottle. Darker orange with little head or lace. Aroma of is sweet ripe tropical and floral hope array. Flavor continues with a round caramel and fruity sweetness that gives way quickly near the end to an almost bracing bitterness. Mouthfeel is normal. Nice clean hop beer.

Aroma is very grassy hops and a hint of syrup sweetness. The flavor is grassy hops, citrus, somewhere between mild and medium sweetness and a mix of tart and bitter in the finish.

On cask. Amesbury Ale House on 10/20/2012. Aroma is full of floral and earthy hops plus some tropical fruit. Resin and fruity hops is balanced out by large amounts of caramel malt. The caramel is so predominate that the bitterness is not real overpowering. Lots of bready malt / toast as well. A lot of DIPA’s are on the sweet side so this doesn’t surprise me. Medium body with a sticky texture.

Had this at the 2012 Great American Beer Fest in Denver, Colorado. Nice fresh hop and pineapple scents, great beer for the style.

badwhale (391) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle to pint glass. Pours a slightly orange yellow with decent head. Pretty basic IPA with a decieving AVB. I’d have to try it on tap before I made my final decision. It just "OK" to me.

scottw86 (1140) - Maryland, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Poured a slightly hazy light amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is very hoppy with some apricot. Good pine flavors. Taste has some light sweet malty flavors at first. Transitions quickly to a very hoppy body with pine and spruce. Some citrus as well. Finish is crisp and well balanced with some apricot and more hops. Very good.

On draft at Westover Beer Garden in Arlington, VA. Pours a clear golden hue with a white head. Citrusy hop aroma. Nicely balanced hopiness, not overly bitter. Quite tasty.

BigBeer45 (1308) - Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle, this beer had a clear gold pour with a little orange and made a one finger white and faint off-white head that receded to a thin cover and ring, the cover had some open areas, the glass had a slow moving center stream with a few bubbles here and there, it left some small spots and fingers of lacing on the sides of the glass, this beer had aromas of resin, citrus and spice hops that had a little herb in the background, some toasted malt, light fruit, some malt sweetness, the flavors were toasted malt, light bready malt, and citrus and resin hops, a little fruit, the finish had some hop bitterness on the tongue with malt flavor continuing afterwards, it was somewhat drying on the palate, the mouth feel was less than medium with average to lively carbonation, the nose was weak, no big hops or malt or complexity, and the flavors were simple and not something to get excited about, why is this categorized as a IPA2? This was a IPA and a typical one to, nothing special here, I was disappointed with this drink, this was not up there as one of Troegs better beers, I would not buy this beer again, skip this beer and buy their Hopback Amber.

cpetrone84 (1660) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2012
pour is a clear golden amber with a tight light tan head. Nose is balanced, caramel malt and a faint bready note. Strong citrus in back. Flavor is more hop forward but still has a nice malt backbone. Caramel is light as well as a doughier bread. Hops are aggressive, citrus with a touch of citric acid. Light lingering bitterness and strong carbonation. Faint grain in the body with a fairly dry finish.
