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.

Pours bright gold into a shaker. White head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet toffee, caramel and resin aromas. Sweet malty toffee upfront turning mildly bitter in the lasting grapefruit finish. Tastes like a Helles???

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2012 Re-rate, Half moon, a couple drafts, 6/12: Reaffirm my initial rating. Original rating: I’m just a flat out fan of the Troegs amber/hop series of brews they do, so.... Bottle from SL. The pour was golden, shy of amber, decent head and good good lacing. The aroma was wonderful citrus and resiny hops, some pepper too. The flavor was caramel malts, citrus (oranges and tangerines), faint bread, faint pine, lighter fruits, herbal hops also in the finish. Mouthfeel was light, crisp, and refreshing, able only to be improved with a bit more of a hop kick in the finish (o, that’s right, this isn’t an ipa, it’s an imperial pale..... yah, well....)

Bombers from Craft, Smith’s, and Capone’s. Pours chill hazy deep gold with 2-finger well-retained white head. 4, almost a 5 for look. Nose is heavy resiny hops, pineapple, citrus, and fresh ground black pepper. Tastes crisp, with caramel malt, nice mix of resiny hops, pineapple, Bartlett pear, honeydew, and tangerine. Doesn’t knock you out with IBUs, but has an elegant grace about it, enough hops to let your taste buds know they’re in for a fight, yet a nice almost pinot grigio quality about it, with the pear and apple notes mingling with the pineapple and tangerine. This one is delicious, and I’d like to see this one become a perpetual part of the Troegs lineup.

Bottle big thanks to my friend Rich! Pours semi pale golden With a Belgian looking offshore head. Nose is extremely floral and citrus like with heavy notes of sweet orange peel, grapefruit, and flowers. Also strong notes of sweet malts bread aromas but not caramel. Dry and medium soft bitterness. Really nice beer.

Bomber. Gold with thick white head. Aroma is very fruity; passionfruit? Flavor is the same with grass and a long straw finish. Very interesting and unique.

Bottle. Amber pour with a medium, foamy white head. Aroma is strong citrus fruit, floral and spicy hops, sweet malt, caramel, and hop resins. Taste is also big citrus fruit, strong floral hops, spicy hops, pine resins, caramel, and sweet malt. Body is medium with a moderate bubbly carbonation and an oily slickness throughout, Lingering hop bitterness throughout as well. Ends with more caramel, citrus fruit, pine resins, spicy hops and floral notes. Rather tasty!

Bottle at RFD. Clear copper pour with a small off-white frothy head. Nose of grass, pine sap, and citrus. Great earthy and piney hop character flavor, good drinkable medium body. Balanced bitterness; very tasty.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a deep gold color with a slight haze and a thick white head of sticky foam. Nice looking brew. The nose is full of herbal and citrus fruit notes. Hellllllooooo hops! Tons of herbal and citrus notes with a nice bit of honey and florals in the flavor. Lots going on with this brew. Full bodied with softer carbonation leading to a pretty lengthy but not overpowering bitter finish. This is one brew that lives up to the hype. A steal at this price.

Pour was clear pale color, frothy head. Amazing aroma of melon and perfumy sweetness. A lot going on and a delicious hop profile. It sort of reminded me of the Port Anniversary I had last night, but with a lot less going on. Delicious flavor, but a little thin.

Thanks to Amyliz4 for stopping by Rick’s in Alexandria to pick this one up this evening. $5.49. Served in a Mikasa tulip. Pours a night dark peach color, similar to that of Pliny the Elder. That’s where the similarities begin, but certainly not where they end. Good white head and some spotty lacing. Thin collar throughout. The nose packs a punch with some strong citrus hops to start as well as some nice notes of pine in the background. Bit of light alcohol and general hoppiness throughout. The flavor is fairly comparable to Elder in the it starts out as an amalgamation of bright hops and eventually the individual components come through. Mostly citrus rind with bits of tropical fruit and pine, the former at first and the latter especially as it warms. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Very dry finish. Slightly-noticeable alcohol. Overall, this is a very, very solid attempt and I am quite happy that this will seemingly be readily available at a very nice price point, though not quite as nice as having it in sixers.
