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.

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.

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]

Copperish pour. Nose hits you with some nice juicy hops, loaded with citrus peel and a note of grainy yeasty goodness. Flavor is loaded with a big juicy hop bitterness, fruit, caramel malt. Oh yeah this is a cool beer.

Bomber thanks to Sloth- I won his contest, thanks Bert! Pours a mostly clear copper/orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is marmalade and fresh oranges, some biscuit and yeast. An interesting beer, certainly not a super aggressive IPA, dominated by oranges and tropical fruit, some lingering soft bitterness, a very nice creamy palate, almost a bit of Wit beer in this. Very drinkable, perhaps some Citra in this? I could drink about 3 pints of this on tap. Nice.

Bottle. 22 oz. Split with Vinnie and Tom. Pours a bright yellow with a soapy frothy head. Aroma of honey, nectary floral notes, vanilla, pineapple, and some earthy, grassy notes. Tastes nice and tropical with some juicy pine hints and some crazy bitterness. Medium bodied with a dry, somewhite astringently hopped finish. Really good IPA.

obguthr (4595) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Tangerine, grapefruit flesh, and pineapple aroma. Shimmering amber, thick white lacing head. Grapefruit peel and pineapple flavor with a light malt counter balance. Lasting grapefruit peel on the palate. Thin body with no alcohol perceptible. Good bitterness, the dry hopping is delicious and obvious, but the beer is rather spinelss. A great beer otherwise.

Draft. Pours bright gold with a white head. Dank ass hoppy aroma with fresh citrus and christmas trees. Awesome piney and citric hop flavor with lightly sweet and pale malts. Fresh to death.

Poured from a bottle. Very light colored for a beer of this style. Hops dominate the aroma and taste. Very citrusy, very nice!

Bomber. Poured clear, brighter golden with a sticky cap of off-white head.. looked great in the glass! The aroma picked up a fresh bouquet of grapefruit, pine resin, and floral hoppage over sweet honey and meaty citrus fruits.. perfect balance, and it smelled awesome! The flavor found tangy pine resin and grapefruit upfront, with sweet honey-kissed bready notes across the middle.. the bitterness persisted in the same proportions as the nose, and stuck around for a while on the peppery, refreshing finish.. wow! Medium-bodied and spicy through the palate, with great balance.. moderate-plus carbonation.. phenomenal brew!

This starts with a great blast of hops, fading to a caramel malt base. Pours a clear, light-amber, with a full white head. There’s good lacing left on the glass. There’s a nice bitter start, with a long lingering citrus bitter finish. This is an amazingly good beer, and I hope it starts making it into a six pack.
