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.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle from Vienna Whole Foods. Reminiscent of Pliny the Elder, but not quite as hoppy. Dry with lots of tropical fruit and peach. Bitter piny hop finish. Surprsingly easy drinking. Hops are noticeable but not overpowering. A nice beer.

I found this beer to be very good. Hop/malt balance was perfect. A bit high in alcohol but it is an imperial. Finish is smooth and dry. Overall flavor is citrus with some grape and mild bread. Fantastic! Thanks Argo0!

Panzuriel (1316) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Beer from bomber bought at the Dublin Andersons. Pours an apple Juice copper with a thick head of white foam. Liquid is hazy. Nose is full of hop sharpness with some citrus and pine notes. Taste is more of the same Hop awesomeness, citrus yields to pine through the taste. Body is fizzy but fluid. Medium fullness. Some lingering bitters on the finish. Great IPA.

22oz bottle. Wow. The hop/ malt balance is perfect. The hops flavors include orange, peach, and a little bit of grass. There is a hint of the sour basement funk in the aroma. The sweet malt takes the edge off of the hop flavors while still maintaining a light body. This was the perfect reward for a great job interview today. Yummers.

Bottle. Pour is a bright gold with an impressive white head that fades to a small ring. Aroma is amazing, you can smell this thing as soon as you open it. Lots of citrus: pineapple, mango, lemon with a bit of vanilla. Flavor is less impressive: lots of citrus and lemon and sweet malt with a bit of wood, vanilla, and booze. Palate is dry, average carbonation, bitter finish. It’s a solid east coast IPA at a $5/bomber price, but I can’t bring myself to give this a 4.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Bomber from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear golden color with a large frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of fresh herbal hops. The taste is fresh hops... herbal, minty and earthy with some pale malts. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. The beer pours light gold with a thin white head. The aromas are citrus hops, pineapple, and mango. Taste is much like the nose, with citrus flavor and nice bitter complements dominating. Notes of alcohol are also coming through. The palate is light, but the beer is very flavorful and enjoyable. Overall, this is a very drinkable brew. Not super complex, but very tasty and refreshing. Hard to beat at $5 a bottle.

abcfan (726) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Pours clear orange with a bubbly white head. Citrus aroma. Very light on the senses. Slick across the tongue, finishes very dry with a hop bite. Has a typical "Troeg’s" character.
