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.

really great aroma, bursting with tropical fruit and a bit of resin-y hops. flavor is nice also, very light on the bitterness, maybe a touch too mild. clean and smooth though, bitter finish. this is a nice one. a little more malt character would make it excellent.

Pours a bright light orange color with a small amount of head that quickly fades. Aroma is full of intense hops and a little malt. Lots of floral and earth character plus some tropical fruit. Taste keeps the hop complexity but there doesn’t seem to be much malt to back it all up. There’s some spiciness in there and its only mildly bitter. Overall it’s a good IPA but not great. Could use a bit more malt flavor and more bitterness.

Aroma is fabulous with intense floral hops and some mild earth, but the flavor really falls flat. Malts are mild and don’t add much to the flavor profile. For an IPA that depends so heavily on a rich hop profile, there just isn’t enough there.

Pours a clear pale orange color with a small fluffy white head. Aroma of pine and citrus hops with some light sweetness. Flavor of strong pine with some citrus hops with a good amount of malts to balance the hops. Pretty good.

mikesaum (619) - Newark, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Pours orange with a slightly off white head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma is pineapple and pine, sweet malt backing it up, overall average aroma. Taste is mostly pine up front, then goes into some tropical fruit, finishes up sweet caramel and a bitter finish that lingers for just a second. Medium body, was hopin it would be a bit fuller, but still good.

Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/15/12

Aroma: The nose is citrus and pine hops with some sweet malt notes
Appearance: It pours a slightly cloudy orange color with a small white head and white lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, light malt, and medium bitter from the citrus and pine hops
Palate: The body is crisp and clean, a little sticky, with a soft carbonation, and a fairly dry finish
Overall Impression: I’m glad to drank this one again, it is a very solid beer. This one was a very solid beer, kind of a cross in styles in that it doesn’t feel exactly like an IIPA, an IPA, or a pale, but has some of the components of each of these very similar style.

Pale gold color out of the bottle with a thin, foamy white head. Big floral hop nose. Grapefruit rind hop flavor with some pineapple and coarse bread notes. Some clay and mineral notes under the hops. Long, pinching hop finish, along with a pretty noticable alcohol burn.

Bottle. The pour was a golden straw orange with an average (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that was mostly lasting, finally reducing to a few puddles and a medium collar with some excellent sticky spotty lacing. The aroma was of floral and citrus hops, grain malts and a sweet yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit) and a quite noticeable sweet fruity ester. The taste was a little bitter-sweet with a hint of caramel and had a mild fruitiness from the onset, and then became quite a bit bitterer and nice and hoppy with a definite citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted a very long time proceeding the swallow with a hoppy bitter taste that was left to linger for quite a while longer. Mouthfeel was a few shades beyond light in body and was dry in texture with a moderate carbonation. Overall an extremely well balanced IPA, slightly fruity at the start and pleasurably bitter towards the end with a great drinkability...
