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.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2011
22oz bottle, dated 8/11/11, from total wine in norfolk. pours a bright, yellow-gold with a thick, creamy white head that has solid retention and leaves soapy rings of lace. aroma is great with big fruity hop esters of apricot, peach flesh, and pink grapefruit backed by light tropical notes of pineapple and mango with subtle notes of sweet honey and cake-like malts. flavor is delicious as well with juicy, slightly sweet, fruity notes of peach, pineapple, and zesty grapefruit backed by hints of orange creamsicle, dry grass, and bitter pine needles with dry, crackery malts on the finish. palate is medium bodied and juicy on the tongue with a very mild bitterness making this one effortless to drink. overall, an outstanding IPA.

BeerandBlues2 (10531) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy orange with a large, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, and floral hops, tropical fruity esters, coconut, biscuit and meal malt. Flavor is moderate hop bitterness, subdued malt, tropical fruity esters, and floral, citrus, and pine hops with a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Aroma of citrus, grapefruit and just a touch of pine. Everything I like about an IPA. Pours bronze with a big bubbly head. Tastes of pine with hints of the grapefruit. Not as sweet as it smells but quite amazing. nice one, troeggs.

Ernesto987 (4378) - Arizona, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Another great success by troegs. Hop nose, light malts in flavor with bright strong citrusy hops in flavors. Very light hoppy finish. No bittering in finish, the way I like my pale ales.

tgncc (2994) - Bellmore, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Aroma is earthy, rsiny and citrus, but has a damp basment sort of thing. Vague burnt aroma. Definitely get whole leaf hops. The appearance is amber/yellow, but unusual for this type, more gold than amber. The flavor is earthy, resiny, some metal. Slightly thinner than medium in body. The finish is a strong and enduring panoply of hops, mainly resin, some citrus and flowers as well. I don’t like it as much as I thought. It reminds me of Oscar Blues Gubna, where the dry hopping gave the beer an odd aroma and flavor. Maybe laying this down ffor a while would be good.

MaBeer1972 (1399) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Pours a clear medium gold with good frothy head. Aroma of burnt rubber and grapefruit. Flavors of grapefruit in the foam, but more bitter with the liquid. More sweet burnt rubber notes. Very bitter and sticky finish. I am not that impressed.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Hazy orange-yellow, puffy white cover. Aroma is a nice floral, citrus, light spicy hop aroma over a backbone of sweet candy, toast, light caramel malts. Taste is a sweet toffee malt, followed by all the same hop flavors, very light bitter. Good stuff.

JStax (3431) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Poured from bottle. Appearance is a hazy copper with a quickly diminishing white head. Splotchy lacing down the side of the glass. Aroma is resin, herbs, and spruce with a light, biscuity malt presence buried in there. Taste is herbal citrus with a bitter and resinous middle. After a long dry finish, and aftertaste of light biscuits and nuts shows up. This one is definitely a nice beer. I hope Troegs decides to make this a little more than a one-off.

Scored the last four bombers from our local Weis Market. Awesome citrus aroma from a frothy golden amber pour. Flavor was a mouthful of hops.....citrus, grassy, piney, herbal......slightly sweet malty amber flavor, tastes a lot like Hopback but nothing wrong with that. I was not disapointed!
