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.

Bottle big thanks to my friend Rich! Pours semi pale golden With a Belgian looking offshore head. Nose is extremely floral and citrus like with heavy notes of sweet orange peel, grapefruit, and flowers. Also strong notes of sweet malts bread aromas but not caramel. Dry and medium soft bitterness. Really nice beer.

Bomber. Gold with thick white head. Aroma is very fruity; passionfruit? Flavor is the same with grass and a long straw finish. Very interesting and unique.

Bottle. Amber pour with a medium, foamy white head. Aroma is strong citrus fruit, floral and spicy hops, sweet malt, caramel, and hop resins. Taste is also big citrus fruit, strong floral hops, spicy hops, pine resins, caramel, and sweet malt. Body is medium with a moderate bubbly carbonation and an oily slickness throughout, Lingering hop bitterness throughout as well. Ends with more caramel, citrus fruit, pine resins, spicy hops and floral notes. Rather tasty!

Bottle at RFD. Clear copper pour with a small off-white frothy head. Nose of grass, pine sap, and citrus. Great earthy and piney hop character flavor, good drinkable medium body. Balanced bitterness; very tasty.

Elwood (3046) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a deep gold color with a slight haze and a thick white head of sticky foam. Nice looking brew. The nose is full of herbal and citrus fruit notes. Hellllllooooo hops! Tons of herbal and citrus notes with a nice bit of honey and florals in the flavor. Lots going on with this brew. Full bodied with softer carbonation leading to a pretty lengthy but not overpowering bitter finish. This is one brew that lives up to the hype. A steal at this price.

Goodgrief (1782) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Pour was clear pale color, frothy head. Amazing aroma of melon and perfumy sweetness. A lot going on and a delicious hop profile. It sort of reminded me of the Port Anniversary I had last night, but with a lot less going on. Delicious flavor, but a little thin.

Thanks to Amyliz4 for stopping by Rick’s in Alexandria to pick this one up this evening. $5.49. Served in a Mikasa tulip. Pours a night dark peach color, similar to that of Pliny the Elder. That’s where the similarities begin, but certainly not where they end. Good white head and some spotty lacing. Thin collar throughout. The nose packs a punch with some strong citrus hops to start as well as some nice notes of pine in the background. Bit of light alcohol and general hoppiness throughout. The flavor is fairly comparable to Elder in the it starts out as an amalgamation of bright hops and eventually the individual components come through. Mostly citrus rind with bits of tropical fruit and pine, the former at first and the latter especially as it warms. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Very dry finish. Slightly-noticeable alcohol. Overall, this is a very, very solid attempt and I am quite happy that this will seemingly be readily available at a very nice price point, though not quite as nice as having it in sixers.

PapaSkeetSkeet (808) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2011
rather hazy light gold. healthy white head, but not bubbly. Aroma is full of berries, citrus, cherry. Flavor is berry and orange, with light floral notes, and a big piney prickly finish that lingers on and on. No caramel is overtly apparent. Medium bodied. It’s good, but what makes this an Imperial PA rather than an India PA?

Very excited to try this. Bomber date was bottled on 8/11/11. Dark gold with an off white head. Weak aroma, faint grapefruit, pine and malt. Hop resin, malt, pine and faint booze on the flavor. Palate is too thin for a strong ale and too heavy for an IPA. I was expecting much more.

Clear light amber pour with a moderate white head. Aroma of fresh hops, citrus, and pine. Flavor is super smooth, hoppy and bitter. Booze is very well hidden. Excellent!
