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.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Absolutely awesome. Diverse hop profile is intensely complex yet it still manages to be refreshing. Glad they finally make this year round. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - MAR 14, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2013 Pours honey gold with perfect clarity and a frothy head of foam that stuck to the glass like cotton candy. Beautiful effervescence streaming up the middle of the glass. This one’s lovely to look at. Nose is peachy, tropical & floral. Has a little dank which I love and the malt is peeking out with some biscuit and honey. Taste is near perfection with no alcohol, some hop bitter and light malt to greet the palate. Light, clean but it falls short of crisp. The hops come up catty and earthy and the malt is fat with cracker and bread. Finishes bitter and a touch of grain. Of all the Troegs I have had this one is the least impressive. Troegs has it’s own brews to compete with and this one is good, it’s even better than good but it lacked nerve.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2013
12oz Bottle, purchased at Wegman’s. Aroma is leafy, catty, and green. Pungent and herbaceous, somewhat piney, like freshly crushed yew berries. I don’t care for the body and flavor of this beer. It’s washed out, overly dry, and too focused on a narrow band of filtered tasting hops, making it feeling like a cleaned up and sanitized take on traditional West Coast hop bomb examples, like Pliny the Younger or Sculpin. The malt structure is too thin to support the level of bitterness and an overall paucity of hop flavor makes this less enjoyable than it could be. Filtering is an issue here.

Evolutionary (469) - Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Tap at mellow mushroom. Pours golden Like a lighter beer. Citrus fresh nose and medium heavy carbonation. Light white thin head. Bitter light mouthfeel. Citrus hop burst upfront and some off balanced sweetness to follow. A strange imperial ipa with little alcohol taste. Seems like a lighter beer but still tasty. Little floral taste which can be a positive. ---Rated via my mouth

On tap. Very mild for an imperial IPA. Smooth aroma and palate. Subtle hoppy taste. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thedm (5614) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 1, 2013
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent dark orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The mild citrus crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a strong hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of mild caramel vinous citrus and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

thechandler (593) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2013
On tap at fatheads in Pittsburgh. Aroma is faint, lightly citrus. Pours is on the darker side of golden. Flavor is a blast of citrusy hops. Not especially bitter, but a beautiful bouquet of hop flavor.

Bottle @ Matt’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks Armin! Pours a fairly clear golden appearance with an off white head. Garlic, fairly spicy herbal hoppy, somewhat grapefruity aroma. Somewhat bitter, onion, toasty malty, herbal hoppy flavor.
