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. Moderate to heavy malt and hop aromas of roasted and pine, light soap for the yeast, with wood, pepper and solvent in the background. Head is average to large, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear light amber, but hazy on the last pour. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a soft carbonation and a faintly astringent finish. Could’ve been bolder in flavor but this DIPA has great balance and perfect DIPA characteristics with rounder edges than most others.

jgb9348 (5124) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Cloudy copper coloured body with a bright orange glow, a thick off-white head and a bit of movement near the bottom. Aroma of fresh grapefruit, piney and floral hops with a lot of fruit smells, some oak and a bit of herbal dryness. Medium-bodied; Assertive dry and floral hoppiness with a bit of a malt kick and some subdued apricot and peach flavours. Aftertaste shows mostly of the hops, a touch of the floral bits and some light fruitiness. Overall, a nicer, lighter Imperial IPA, that I feel is just a standard IPA - but some good flavours and bunches of hops make this a solid, respectable beer. Still not as much hops as a California-based IPA, but nice and not too strong, because of the large format bottle. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits in Washington, DC on 28-October-2011 for US$5.99 sampled at home in Washington on 14-November-2011.

They seem to have done a great job taking all the bitterness and making it blend together smoothly. Amber color and can sense the abv in the nose. What troegs does well is creating sweet malt backdrops to pump hoppy bitterness into. If you love nugget nectar this one is for you. Granted the dry hopping gives the body some smoothness. Not sure I am a huge fan of aftertaste though with its caramel biscuit tone.

Poured into a snifter. 4.0 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. Three fingers of dense foamy white head. Retention is about average and lots of honeycomb lacing is left. 4.5 S: Lots of tropical fruit in this. Mango and pineapple are the frontrunners with some grapefruit and orange underneath. Really pungent with a touch of cat piss and resin and also somewhat earthy. Malts add balancing neutral sweetness and are clean overall. The Troegs house character is evident though mild. 4.0 T: Moderate bitterness. Hops are tropical citrusy, earthy, and pungent. Orange and grapefruit are strongest with pineapple and pine in the background. Malts are biscuity though clean. There’s a little crystal malt in there and some balancing sweetness. No evidence of booze. 4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and super smooth. 4.0 D: Good beer. Another solid offering from Troegs. I super hate the label art, but I can get over it. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-01-2011 03:14:43

Another great bottle from Graziano’s Pizza. Slightly cloudy, golden color, very nice head that held, lacing and plenty of aromatic hops with light perfume of heather. Nice balance and full mouth. really a nice IPA, or IPA.

Bottle… Clear golden ale with a small, fluffy, white head. The aroma furnishes big honey, toffee, and citrusy hops. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Grassy, floral, citrusy hops are well-supported by a sturdy malt backbone. Grassy, moderately bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!
