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.

BigBeer45 (1414) - Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle, this beer had a clear gold pour with a little orange and made a one finger white and faint off-white head that receded to a thin cover and ring, the cover had some open areas, the glass had a slow moving center stream with a few bubbles here and there, it left some small spots and fingers of lacing on the sides of the glass, this beer had aromas of resin, citrus and spice hops that had a little herb in the background, some toasted malt, light fruit, some malt sweetness, the flavors were toasted malt, light bready malt, and citrus and resin hops, a little fruit, the finish had some hop bitterness on the tongue with malt flavor continuing afterwards, it was somewhat drying on the palate, the mouth feel was less than medium with average to lively carbonation, the nose was weak, no big hops or malt or complexity, and the flavors were simple and not something to get excited about, why is this categorized as a IPA2? This was a IPA and a typical one to, nothing special here, I was disappointed with this drink, this was not up there as one of Troegs better beers, I would not buy this beer again, skip this beer and buy their Hopback Amber.

pour is a clear golden amber with a tight light tan head. Nose is balanced, caramel malt and a faint bready note. Strong citrus in back. Flavor is more hop forward but still has a nice malt backbone. Caramel is light as well as a doughier bread. Hops are aggressive, citrus with a touch of citric acid. Light lingering bitterness and strong carbonation. Faint grain in the body with a fairly dry finish.

Voodoo (546) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Aroma of green hops and piney notes.....pours a clear medium golden color. Taste hits with green hops in the nose, citrus and pine notes, maltiness in between then lingering bitterness at the end without the oily hop residues many other high hopped brews have, which is a pleasant surprise.

I’m a novice when it comes to IPAs, so I’m not sure i can tell the difference between this Imperial and India Pales. Smooth mouthfeel. Easy to drink.

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.

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?).
