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.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2011 Bomber picked up at SL... Light yellow in color, poured aggresive....good head. Smells good.. Piney, grassy... Taste is bitter with a sweetness to it. Lots of piney notes, bitter but a sweetness in the after taste. Very light body.. Kind of unique in that sense.. Imperial Pale Ale it truly is. Why is it an american strong ale on RB? Anyway... Overall... Nice hoppy beer

matty (197) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark gold color with a nice white head that dissipates, leaving some lacing down the glass. Aroma has pine, citrus, hop notes - grapefruit mostly. Lighter mouthfeel than what I would expect. Slightly sweet in the background, but the hops are the show here. Very slight alcohol presence in the taste. Not sure of the history of this, but it reminds me of one the scratch beers. Hopefully this will become at least a seasonal. Enjoyed this one.

Poured an Orange/copper color with a thin head, dissipated but kept a foam ring around the glass, only about 5 oz. Shared with 3 other people. Very tasty 2IPA. Aroma of citrus and some spicy hops. Some nice doughy malt to round it off nicely. I would like to get one of these all to myself.

Bottle: pours golden amber with a thin white head, has an amazing floral choppy aroma, taste is choppy but not harsh, very dry. Nice. Not sure I’d go as far as some others to say it is better than NN.

Harris burg has another reason to be happy. This one pours a light amber, orange color, hazy with a nice creamy head. The aroma has a lot of citrus in it, grapefruit, pine, some lemon over a malty backbone. The flavor is similar with the malt up front and followed by the bitterness which cleans the mouth. Light and refreshing.

22 ounce bottle bottled on 8/11/2011, so this one is nice and fresh! Served in a pint glass as recommended on Tröegs website page for this brew, the beer pours a mostly clear golden/orange color with an inch and a half frothy off-white head. Head retention is pretty good, and there’s also a lot of lacing. Aroma is mostly citrusy hops (grapefruit, tropical fruits, orange peel), along with some pine hops and bready/grainy malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, the brew tastes like citrusy hops (grapefruit, lemon and orange peel, tropical fruit), pine and floral hops, and some bready malt. There’s also a long lasting bitter hoppy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. It’s smooth and goes down easy. I liked this brew a lot. Not quite as much as I like Nugget Nectar, but it’s still very, very good. For only $5.99 a bomber I think it’s worth every penny, I’d definitely buy this again!

dmac (4013) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2011
22 oz bottle from Spirits Middletown. Poured a deep clear bronze body with a small to average sized slightly foamy white head. Aroma is nice with lots of citrus notes, grapefruit, grains, honey, hop cones, lemon rinds, tangerine and apricot skins. Medium to fuller bodied that starts off rather smooth but then the carbonation and the bitterness kicks in about halfway and follows through a long lingering bitter finish. Flavor has a solid sweetness about it, somewhere between honey topped bread and eating a grapefruit and a grape at the same time. Really solid stuff here, hey Toegs with the new brewery coming online soon I better see either this or NN as a year round offering.

yellow with large white head. nose of citrus and some herbal hops. firm bitterness before a lot of citrus hops with a touch of herbal, very little malt presence perfectly accentuates the hops, as does the arid finish. alcohol provides depth. a wonderful ipa, world class

PhillyCraft (3228) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2012 Bottle from Brad. This beauty was picked off the line at the brewery the day before I had it. Fresh as can be! Poured a honey glowing orange with medium off white head. Aromas were great, with tons of resinous citrus tones coming through such as pineapple, lemon, earthy grapefruit. Taste was also good with a medium carbonation on the mouth and flavors of grapefruit, vanilla, bread, caramel malts. This was a great new release from Troegs and a truly sessionable ipa. Cheers. Re-rate, dropped this one .4 because the recent batch I had on 11/7 which i was told was fresh was terrible. Aroma was just peach and malt, taste the same with no pine or citrus. When there are so many ipas out there you have to be consistent.
