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 (783) - 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...

Tap. Light hazy golden, offwhite creamy lace. Fine citric hop nose. Full chewy body, lightly carbonated. Fruity base, lemonpeel and with substance like a key lime pie. Light leafy aftertaste. Nice.

CelticBrew (827) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Pours from 12 oz bottle a light, golden hue, forming small white head of foam that quickly dispersed. Aroma of mostly citrusy hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits, orange peel, along with some pine hops and bready grain like malt. Flavour much of the same really. Definitely not a hop bomb, but very hop flavor forward and very refreshing.

This is a nice citrus ipa. Not overly bitter. But I can’t see I can make it one of the best IPAs out there. Nice sweetness. Decent mouthfeel, could be a bit better. Nice citrus grapefruit aroma. Nice lasting head as well.

Draft @ Rustico; fantastic authentic cask ale pour; golden yellow body with long-lasting head; beautiful floral hoo nose; silky smooth drink ability with solid malt sweetness balanced by a surprisingly not-over-the-top hop finish (and a somewhat high ABV); this is an Imperial (not India) Pale Ale. Love it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a light, clear gold with thin white head. Great nose - floral, citrus. Taste is not quite as interesting - but still good. Some citrus up front but the bitter hops kick in quickly and linger. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Hazy, golden honey color. Thick, foamy, white head; a lot of lacing. Hoppy, floral aroma with grapefruit. Malty caramel up front balanced by grapefruity hoppiness. Bitter, resin finish. Excellent overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOD 8/19/14. Clear golden pour with a normal head. Excellent lacing, normal retention. Nose of tropical and citrus hops, with some pine in the background, over a light biscuit. Light medium body with a nice slick texture. Slightly above normal carbonation with a nice bit of effervescence on the finish. The excellent flavor profile is complex and a masterpiece of balance. It begins with a balanced blend of hop flavors that flow into a moderate bitterness, that has a spicy note, over a slightly sweet biscuit background. The middle is where the flavor components fade with the alcohol completely hidden. The finish effervesces nicely and leaves you with a nice slightly spicy pine bitterness that flows into grapefruit rind. Outstanding!!

Pours a golden orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, tropical fruits, peach, sweet malts, and some light bready malts. Taste is similar the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy, moderately bitter, slighty dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, pretty complex ipa, that tastes like it was brewed in San Diego.
