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.

22oz bottle: Pours a clear deep golden with a clingy-lacing froth of white head. Has a sweet light caramel malty nose with fresh resiny citrus hops. Starts with a good fullness and sweet pale maltiness with a juicy grapefruit flavor and hop bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish. Has a good amount of hop character and sweet malt balance.

Pours bright and golden with a full thick bright white head with thick sheets of lacing. Smells of marvelous sweet citrusy grapefuits along with pine and a definite strong hop presence. The taste is as it should be with fantastic citrus fruits like grapefruits and lemons and finishes a little long with a nice bitter finish. The mouthfeel is a bit too thin, but nothing too bad.

Bottle. Poured clear golden amber color with a moderate to large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

Man this thing is awesome. Great fresh floral hop aroma. Spicy floral hop boquet on the flavor. Green wet syrupy hop. This is a great brew.

Another very good IPA from Troegs, however a little weak to be called an imperial.

Truly outstanding. Very balanced beer with a ton of hops. Great nose. Given high points for appearance due to awesome head with superior lacing that let a ton of aroma loose. Best of all it did this without benig super strong and maintaining drinkability.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 22oz bottle. This is not an IPA, but an American Strong Ale? tastes very much like a delicious, hoppy IPA to me. Mostly clear yellow orange color, nice big fluffy head. Great lace. Great hop nose. Perfect bitterness, a hint of alcohol. Awesome dryness, perfect crisp carbonation. Light sweet taste, slight bite. Very hoppy, pine, grass, some tropical fruit. Delicious. Troegs’ answer to the Stone Ruination IPA. 8/4/8/5/16

Re-rate, 1/28/14: A lot can change in 2.5 years... Since I first rated this beer in the 22oz format, it was released in 6-packs 12oz bottles, and now 12 packs of cans. My can was filled 12/27/13. Clear golden orange color. Thin white head, that leaves plenty, thick rows of lace. Very smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick, a light bit of dry in the finish. Bigger body. Very drinkable IPA. Good big piney hop aroma, some citrus. Nice clean malt bill, maybe just a light hint of pepperiness. Lighter on the caramel malt flavor. Good bigger bitterness, light sweet. A fantastic, poundable IPA. I forgot how good this was.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Strong hoppy flavor with a lasting finish.

Thanks to orangesol on BA for a bomber of this brewski via trade. Imperial Pale Ale? Seems like an India Pale Ale to me, but I respect Troegs’ classification. Clear orange-copper in color with a one-finger white head and good lacing on the glass. The aroma is nice, citrusy and herbal with notes of orange rind and a considerable sweet honeyish malt presence. The flavor has a sweet malt base with honey and cereal grains with herbal, leafy, grapefruit, and tangerine hop notes. Dry and bitter finish that balances the sweetness. Medium-bodied with a crisp mouthfeel. A solid beer. Could certainly pass for a very good east coast IPA given the malt/hop balance.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Bomber bottled 8.11.11, batch # 110712. Cool label. Pours clear pale orange and gold with a medium-sized foamy off-white head that leaves some sticky lacing. Aromas of sweet pine and tropical fruit, plenty of dank hops and fruit, and citrus. The flavor is light citrus (orange and grapefruit), chalk, sweet papaya, and dank citrus, with a bitter citrus finish. A mild tartness is present, with some sweetness in the aftertaste. Moderate carbonation and medium to full-bodied; very refreshing. This is a fine beer. [793]
