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.

HonkeyBra (3247) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle from Secret Santa. Thanks man! Pours a solid clear orangish yellow with a small white head. Aroma of strong citrus hops, mild cookie dough malt backing. I also get nice floral, grass and herbal hop notes in the nose. Flavor is dry, very bitter. Lot of bitter tangerine rind and grapefruit hops. Some herbal and floral notes as well. Balanced somewhat by bread dough and cookie malts. Medium bodied, well carbonated. This is pretty great. Wonderful DIPA.

Bottle pours a clear golden with a thin white top. Scent is pine fading to citrus and malt. Taste is piney and sweet malt with a citrus finish. Good stuff

BrewBoxer (1872) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Draft. Bronze golden color. Nice lacing on side of glass. Full body. Lots of flavour. Syrupy. Not overly hoppy. Well balanced. Good beer.

TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - JUL 7, 2012
6 pack. This seems more like a regular ipa to me than an imperial. thought the abv level just suggest it. The color is the same foggy yellow shown on the label. Aroma is piney grapefruit joy. The taste a medium bitter. Even carbonation palate. Worthy of the hype. another full on solid that I love from troegs

GSH1976 (206) - Delaware, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Pours a clear golden color with a decent amount of white head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Body is medium. Tastes very clean and fresh -- hoppy, mainly citrus, with a lingering bitter finish. A decent IPA (not sure why this is in the DIPA category) but not in the same league as the better DIPAs.

HighlanderOne (985) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Poured from bottle. Aroma of hop, ocean, soap, citrus. Looks just like an IPA should - gold/amber with a lasting white head. Hop flavors are citrus, floral and pine. Malt is more roasted than sweet. Dry, refreshing feel with just the right amount of carbonation. Very drinkable for an imperial IPA. Another impressive brew from Troegs.

odinstyr (559) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Pours a clear gold with a minimal white head. Smells of resin, spruce, citrus. Taste is super-bitter, very hoppy indeed. A bit too much for me, but definitely well represented of the style.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2012
This beer pours a clear sparkly yellow-gold color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is hoppy with notes of citrus and malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character and flavors of grapefruit and sweet malt. The finish is hoppy with a fruity aftertaste. Above average overall.

nick76 (4170) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2012
The aroma is loaded with pine and citrus hops and plenty of caramel malt. The appearance is golden with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with an astringent bitterness. The palate is a tad thin. Overall a good example of the style.

cheap (3941) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Has a fresh hop aroma that is not overly perfumy. Looks surprizingly like a pale lager with a thin creamy head. I’m not sure why this is listed as an IIPA because I’ve tasted many ipa that were much more rude. Interestingly enough there is some co2 in there which makes it somewhat palatable. Yes, long bitter linger as expected. Anybody feel like chewing on green grapefruit rinds and pulp? How about we first rinse our mouth out with pine spruce tar and dish soap? Yes, a certain mouthcoating experience. On style fer sure for an IPA, not a DPA!
