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.

Pale gold color. Tropical fruit notes, almost white wine-like. Well-balanced, with a light mouthfeel. Finishes clean with a lingering bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light amber in color with a full, malty aftertaste. Floral hop aroma with a medium hop finish. Slightly higher alcohol results in a boozier taste than desired in an IPA.

Pours an orange amber with a foam white head. Aroma pine, citrus nice hop aroma. Taste good hop flavors follow aromas, with some malt sweetness and good hop bitterness on finish

Bottle, as pictured. Pours a clear gold, not much carbonation. Smells a bit piney, very grassy. Taste is similar but not too hardcore hoppy. I have no idea how fresh this is, but I don’t think it’s TOO old. Not bad, but doesn’t hold a candle to fresh Nugget Nectar (but what does?).

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 24, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Citrusy hop resins meet lightly biscuity and caramelized cereals in this friendly IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the pale gold.
-Mouthfeel is lean and conducive to big gulps.
-Resinous bitterness is leveled to the rest of the flavor profile’s medium intensity.
-Don’t know if this was a freshness, but I thought this IPA of Troegs’s had much less character than their Nugget Nectar (for example).

rxeight (2033) - Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2012
This was a very good standard IPA. very subtile floral hop taste, which is what I prefer. Not too bitter, very smooth and drinkable for a 7.5%

kopher (593) - New York, USA - SEP 18, 2012
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.

umich03jm (2993) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2012
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.

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2012
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.
