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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a golden straw orange with an average (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that was mostly lasting, finally reducing to a few puddles and a medium collar with some excellent sticky spotty lacing. The aroma was of floral and citrus hops, grain malts and a sweet yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit) and a quite noticeable sweet fruity ester. The taste was a little bitter-sweet with a hint of caramel and had a mild fruitiness from the onset, and then became quite a bit bitterer and nice and hoppy with a definite citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted a very long time proceeding the swallow with a hoppy bitter taste that was left to linger for quite a while longer. Mouthfeel was a few shades beyond light in body and was dry in texture with a moderate carbonation. Overall an extremely well balanced IPA, slightly fruity at the start and pleasurably bitter towards the end with a great drinkability...

ciocanelu (1134) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 5, 2016
On tap. Slightly hazy golden color with white head. Aroma has bittersweet tangerines and some dank/grassy hops. Taste starts with juicy citrus fruits and finishes with bitter, piney hops and lingers with grapefruit pith flavor. Medium body with soft carbonation. Overall it’s a quite good IPA with a more classic hop profile.

bavarian81 (143) - 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 (2400) - 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.
