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.

nyindiansfan (463) - rochester, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle pour with white head. Smells tastes of resin pine citrus. Pretty much a hop bomb. Not much sticky semi dry flat. Pretty good as far as what it is a bit too much hooks for my taste.

APPEARANCE - light golden color. Whisky white head. NOSE - lot of floral hops packed into every whiff. Slight pine backbone and not much fruitiness to it. FLAVOR - really smooth bittering hop flavors. They give way to mildly resinous notes, and other than the very first sip, hardly any of the floral flavors that treated my nose so well. NOTES - Tröegs is always good for an IPA, and this one doesn’t disappoint.

Type: 12-oz. can Glass: Lagunitas mason jar From: Eddy’s Beverage Inc. in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. Price: $1.99 Purchased: July 14, 2015 Consumed: July 24, 2015 Misc.: Canned on March 16, 2015 (I think) Poured a honey, pale, hazy color with 5-to-6 fingers of off-white, frothy head. Lots of uneven bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Above average foamy, layered, spiderweb lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.13) Smelled wet Cascade, pine, soap, caramel, floral, herbal and slight menthol. If what I read was correct (March 16 canned on date), then that is why the smell is just OK. (Smell - 3.63) Tasted pretty close to the nose, maybe a tad more malty. Floral, pine, wet Cascade, herbal, light menthol, tropical notes and faint passion fruit. (Taste - 4.00) Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.63) This was a pretty good IIPA and I’m sure it would have been better fresher. Would like to give it another try. (Overall - 3.88) 3.87 87 B+

It’s a go-to ipa for any event or a required moment out with some friends. If there isn’t another craft around go with this. Easy to ddrink, hops are strong and full of flavor. Tap and bottle.

Bottle in Brooklyn-- Pours clear golden with thin white head. Discrete piney nose. Aromas are pine, some tropical fruits and citrus. Lively carbonation, medium body. Medium bitter finish. Nothing exceptional here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (15379) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle, 12oz. A clear, golden beer with a small, white off-head. Piney, resiny aroma with an almost stinging grassy hoppyness. It’s medium to full-bodied, with a soft carbonation and a good amount of bitterness. Pine cones, resins and some grass, with pale malts in the back. Lasting bitter, piney finish with pale malts. Too much on the malty side this one, even though it’s not very malty, and the bitterness feels rather harsh. But decent anyway. 150620

On tap at brewery. Totally acceptable IPA but nothing exciting. Obviously I am spoiled living in Asheville, but I honestly don’t understand the popularity of this place. People were lining up for mediocre in both beer and food. Horrible set up with poor service-- bad experience all around. Beer itself poured a rich orange with a nice white head. All the usual IPA notes- pine, citrus, resin with a medium/heavy slightly sticky mouthfeel. ABV pretty obvious. Somewhat sweet upfront and overly bitter in the finish that lingers. Would not seek this out or go back to brewery. Like Disney World in all the bad ways........

Tap at Garlic Poet in Harrisburg, PA. Gold with minimal head. Mango, musty, granulated sugar and honey. Taste is dry with a resiny bitter aftertaste. Body is heavier with a sticky,soapy feel.
