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.

very bright yellow/gold with pillowy white head. Pine, grass and hop resin dominate the nose, nothing lavender like or perfumery and any discernable citrus is on the grapefruit rind end of the spectrum. Taste is the same, all out pine assualt, dry finish. This is the most ruination-like offering brewed on the east coast. This is hop juice all the way and from Troegs, they have been reluctant to suppress the malt like this. Picked up by chance on a trip through Jersey on the advice of a patron.

Pours a clear, deep straw color with a white head that was initially 2 fingers, but faded to a ring quite fast. Aromas consist of really sweet citrus, mango pineapple, grapefruit and melon. Aroma is amazing. Simple fucking amazing. The first sip cuts through all my preconceptions and mischaracterizations of what an east coast IPA can be. The bitter fruitiness is right up there with the best of them... This rivals any IPA I’ve ever had, and honestly, the price is so right that this may be my new favorite IPA. They classify this as a DIPA, but it’s really not. It’s a world class IPA. Period. End of. This beer is blowing me away with every sip. Better than Nugget Nectar. Yeah, I said it.

On tap at Circa, High Bridge, NJ. Clean lines. I ended up with one of the first pours of this nice new beer in NJ! Beer pours golden amber in color, nice hoppy aroma and medium head retention. Smooth and crisp for an imperial. Malt is perfect for the hoppy attack. Only issue for me was that the finish was a tad more bitter than I would prefer. Solid imperial IPA.

12oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aromas of pine grass and some solid citrus notes. Body is medium.with a dry feel. Finish is a bit hoppy defiantly a bit boozy

Perpetual is a very solid IPA that has a nice alc. kick to boot. Made to be on the dry side, but still balanced with enough malt. Taste like many well-made IPAs, but still a good offering.

Good taste to it. It is almost like the taste and aroma do not match. Still good enough to drink with it changing its taste during drinking it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Solid, though slightly sweet ipa. Nice dank nose, light pine, touch of apricot, slight onion and garlic. Lots of honey malt, slightly astringent chunky bitterness.

Pleasant aroma and amazing color/clarity. The taste is sweet and similar to the floral nose but ends slightly dry. The flavor might be too dry for my taste as it plays off of the floral aroma and turns it into a weird flavor with the mild sweetness. When tasted off the back end of the tongue it is less bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a translucent gold with a thin, white head. Good lacing. Floral, hoppy aroma appropriate to the style. Effervescent mouthfeel. Hop bitterness pronounced in the taste, but not overpowering. Nice IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Above average IPA... Not great. I would put this in the same class as 21 amendment Born Free or Die & DFH 60 minute. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
