3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle poured 1/4/13. Pours light golden color with fine, thin head, spread nicely across the top. Piney, citrus notes. Very nice fresh hop flavor without overpowering bitterness. Didn’t find much of a malt backbone, but doesn’t need it. Light bodied, great tasting. Very nice, easy-drinking brew.

Overall another successful beer from troegs. Not too hoppy, goes down nice and easy.. I’d like to kick back with this in the pool this summer! I might even try it out in my new beer pong pool racks :-)

Troegs has hit a homerun with Troegs Perpetual IPA (The First Imperial Pale Ale I have tried). Very nice balance of hops with a nice citra finish, obviously they are making great beers as noted by winning Best Mid Sized Brewery of The Year at the GABF!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy, almost clear, deep golden color with a medium white head. Aroma of cookie-ish/biscuity malt, floral and citric hops and some notes of pine needles. Sweetish chewy malt flavor, somewhat caramelly, and a bitter finish with grapefruity hops. Medium-bodied, slightly oily mouthfeel. Quite decent, but a bit too malty for my liking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floral, spicy hops- very unique take on an ipa. Bubblegum and wheat notes- very delicate. Well balanced by a delicate malt profile but lingering bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear golden with a large white head. The aroma is very hop forward with floral, tropical fruits, tangerine and a bit of mildly sweet malt in the back - very nice. It has a medium lightly rough body with some gentle sharp carbonation. The flavor starts out super hoppy with grapefruit, tangerine, pine, spice and grass. There is some dry caramel and crackers in there as well. The finish is ultra dry with some sulfur added. Excellent IPA.

12oz bottle from Andersons in Sylvania. Gold pour with big white head and soapy stick. Aroma of apricot, pine and bread. Tastes are sweet caramel, bready, earthy hops, tropical citrus. Good, drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice amber color, with a bit of a haze to it. Serious hoppy pine notes (reminscent of Christmas trees). Great initial flavor of hops, pine needles, then lingers into grapefruit. A quick shot of sweetness, not overly bitter on the finish (surprising for an Imperial Pale Ale, as the neck label states).

Amber color, aroma was full of citrusy (grapefruit) and cat hopiness. Flavor followed through with a nice malt balance.
