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.

very bright yellow/gold with pillowy white head. Pine, grass and hop resin dominate the nose, nothing lavender like or perfumery and any discernable citrus is on the grapefruit rind end of the spectrum. Taste is the same, all out pine assualt, dry finish. This is the most ruination-like offering brewed on the east coast. This is hop juice all the way and from Troegs, they have been reluctant to suppress the malt like this. Picked up by chance on a trip through Jersey on the advice of a patron.

bavarian81 (138) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Poured a nice deep gold/orange color. It’s mostly clear, just a little hazy. Smells mostly of citrus. I also thought I could smell some light malt or grass or hay or whatever.. which I’d expect from a pils not from an IPA. It has a medium body, but that’s all relative I guess. I tasted the citrus flavor right up front combined with bitter hops. Definitely a strongly bitter after taste. I think it’s pretty good overall. Personally, I prefer a more-balanced IPA. As much as I like hops, I’d rather one that didn’t linger quite as long as this one.

koleminer20 (2115) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Flight shared with ebone1988 at the brewery. The pour is a bright golden yellow with a thin ring of head and no lace as it falls. The aroma is full of urea. Nice cat piss (sarcasm). There is a light hoppiness and a hint of malt on the back end. The flavor is malty more than hoppy. There is a light bitterness to it, but it’s a lot sweeter than it should be. The mouth feel is wrong. It’s syrupy and watery with a lack of carbonation and a lingeringly sweet maltiness. This baby is a sum of this visit in the trip. Amazingly disappointing.

Frank (3901) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2016
This stuff is pretty solid. It’s golden w/ a nice looking white head and creamy patches of lace. It’s smell is kinda floral and citrusy, not really as vibrant as I prefer but decent. This stuff is maybe a touch on the heavy side for me but still somewhat drinkable with its creamy carbonation. It finishes w/ some lingering fruity sweetness and rather firm bitterness. This is a good beer, not out of this world in any respect, but solid w/ no real off flavors or problems. I wouldn’t turn one down if offered.

OnTheTrail (301) - Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Pours crystal clear copper gold, small off white head. Aroma is rich citrus and pine. Moderately bitter, piney flavor, some grapefruit rind notes. Mouthfeel is crisp and well carbonated.

commonmac (1000) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Tap in a bumped pint glass at Blue 5 in Roanoke, VA. ECBT continues with crew intact. Golden orange color with really solid lacing and quarter finger white head. Pine and floral qualities work well in the aroma along with grassy notes. Taste is pine and resin first, then a little bit of bitter citrus rind. Feels pretty standard imperial IPA fare with a bigger bitter quotient than some. Nice clean finish after a pretty slick, piney mouthfeel. I’ll continue to like this for a long time...or until I taste my next imperial IPA.

Hiledd (69) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Floral and grassy aroma, clear copper color, head dissipates quickly, medium body thin for imperial but in style for IPA, malt, syrup, banana, lemon flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
