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!

Bottle sample as a bonus beer at the organic beer tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 8/18/11. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Spicy, piney and citrusy hop nose with some malt. Spicy and piney hop flavor with and earthy and grassy hop finish.

superspak (2832) - Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2011
22 ounce bottle into tulip, bottle 8/11/11. Pours slightly hazy golden amber color with 2 fingers of dense off white head with amazing retention that reduces to a thick lacing cap. A bit of nice lacing clings to the glass as well. Aromas of big pine, caramel, orange, tropical fruits, and spices. Very nice aromas here with good strength as well. Taste of big pine, grapefruit, orange, caramel, and big spiciness. Nice amount of bitterness present on the finish that lingers for a decent period of time with caramel, citrus, pine, and spice notes. Very nice balance of bitterness to sweetness. Medium carbonation and body, with a decently creamy mouthfeel. No alcohol noticed other than a very small warming after the finish. Extremely smooth and easy to drink as well. Overall an excellent and delicious IPA. Very hoppy and nicely balanced, with smooth drinkability.

LinusStick (2887) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Wow! A delicious IPA (don’t agree with the American strong classification). Big and hoppy all around. Aroma was thick and citrusy, with lots of pine and peppermint. Pour was the way I love my IIPAs- hazy light to medium gold. Lets you know that the hops are going to be dominant. Taste was all hops. Pine, pepper, grapefruit and hot spices in the front. Slightly resinous. Nice biting carbonation and a bitter wet aftertaste. Lovely beer

r464 (1944) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Amber in color with a rather large whitish head. Balanced but still strongly hoppy and somewhat bitter. Very smooth finish. Faint hints of orange zest and spice.

TomDecapolis (4541) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Pours a hazy golden orange with a creamy off white head that left great lacing. Aroma of fresh American hops. Mixed citrus, pine and floral notes. Reminds me of a less malty Nugget Nectar nose. Some malt profile...yeah they hit this one. Flavor of that same fresh American hop profile. Lots of pine, grapefruit and various other citrusy notes. Dry and crisp some malt to balance. An east coast brewer hitting that west coast DIPA style.

Leafs93 (1743) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Pours copper with a white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine, maybe a hint of grass. Taste is predominately grapefruit...sweet with bitters on the finish. Somewhat stick mouthfeel.

mansquito (3552) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Whole Foods P st, DC 22oz ($5): Pours a nice golden colour with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is a whole bunch of piny hops, along with a bit of citrus. Taste is bitter and hoppy, but not exceedingly so in any regard; the flavor, as opposed to the punch, is what is intense in this beer. There are no ’dirty’ elements in this beer insofar as it is an exceptionally clean beer, with a balance crafted with nigh mechanical accuracy. If this beer wasn’t so good, I could almost call it boring. Fortunately, this beer is actually that good, and once again, Troegs does the opposite of disappointing my taste buds.
