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.

Thin bright white head of fine bubbles that reduces rather quickly. Awesome aroma with lots of pineapple, sweet malts, citrusy hops and some cereal grains. Color is a bright golden orange with a slight haze. Flavor is lots of hops but offset with a decent bit of malt. Herbal hops flavors, more citrus fruit and some straw and chalky grains. Decent lingering bitterness. A pretty good and tasty IPA. A decent brew to add as a staple drinking brew.

Courtesy of Summer Secret Santa 2012! This is a solid stronger pale ale. I wouldn’t really call it a strong IPA, but that’s just me? Well, I agree with the brewery. So, yes, it’s a stronger pale ale not an IPA. Anyway, there’s a cheese and biscuit set of qualities here that really has a grip around the hops. The lacing is minimal and the head is too, revealing itself as pretty soapy. I really enjoy this, but I believe it’s not categorized right! I mean, I’m spoiled over here in ’frisco with all the *real* IPAs :o)

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours light golden with a thick long lasting rocky white head. Aroma is nicely citric, some tangerine, a bit piney and herbal. Flavor starts with some of the same piney herbal a touch cheesy hops, notes of resin and floral character before a bitter and slightly bready finish. As its warming its tasting more english, a bit more malt coming through and the herba; hop character. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Not bad, dont love the finish, but drinkable

RABinCO (1309) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Draft. Pours a pale gold, definitely making certain that it’s an Imperial Pale Ale, not an India Pale Ale. Slight head that fades to thick lacing. Big fresh hops aroma. Very smooth, crisp hops taste. Easy drinking. Doesn’t last long on the palate, so the beer disappears fast.

A schooner at Champs in Altoona. Pours clear tan with yellow hues, frothy egg white head. Citrus nose, orange and lemon with grapefruit. Lots of hop flavor, grapefruit and a bit of pine, moderate bitter. Balanced by malt, lingering finished.

Golden pour with modest head. Modest piney hops. Like many IPAs... Many good ones.

ddemmingjr (705) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2012
On draft at La cave du vin: pours clear golden, minimal off white head that fades to almost nothing. Nose is tremendous citrus, pine, faint resin. Quite resinous hop notes on the palate. Heavier bodied and not as drinkable as some others at this ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is lemon, grapefruit, pine, and grass. Poured a clear golden color with a white head. Taste is a well balance between citrus, pine floral and a bitter/dry finish. Has just a tinge of honey taste as well. Overall is pretty good stuff.

Fantastic double IPA!! This beer pours a bright golden color with a big, soft and pillow-like white head. The head leaves a cascading sticky lace around the inside of the glass. The nose is full of hop resin, pine and citrus. The body is smooth and extremely drinkable. The flavors are spicy, dry and very, very hoppy! I taste a lot of grapefruit, hop resin and pine in the flavors, as well. The finish is, again, very dry and spicy with lots of citrus and pine notes. Perpetual IPA is an awesomely fantastic and delicious beer!

Tap. Nice floral hop aroma. The initial taste has some piney and flowery hop flavor. There is a strong bitterness that lingers on your tongue for quite awhile (a negative for me). OK but not up to Nugget Nectar standards.
