3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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...

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really solid tasting with slightly bitter aftertaste that does not longer too long. It's not the smoothest but at 7.5% alcohol, the slight edge is sanded off in the first few sips.

Troegs products are always good. The perpetual is has an interesting gear and hop bottle and tastes like a classic IPA.

Bottle to glass. Amber color and medium head. Nose of floral, grass, citrus, pine and a bit of skunky. Really taste the pine and some citrus fruits. Easy on the tongue and overall well balanced brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. can. Clear orange-golden with a lasting disc of widely varying bubble sizes. Smells of zesty citrus, fresh toasted grain and some honey-floral notes that almost seem to have some heather pollen. Tastes of caramel, resin, spicy pollen, grapefruit zest and more tropical fruit notes. Long finish is a bit rough with wooden hops and more alcohol than expected for 7.5%, but not so much to make this a disaster. Medium body has smooth, low-medium carbonation and is to the dry side.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From can. Clean, golden red. Rather constrained head of tropical fruit and hops. Hint of funk. Taste is orange sherbet, cut grass, passion fruit and a decent amount of warm malts. Creamy mouthfeel. Really well done.

An outstanding ipa....pours a brilliant gold color and tastes beautiful and bitter. Slightly floral and hippy, all the best things in a beer. It’s a great craft beer and a session beer all at the same time.

A solid beer, but turns out to be too hoppy for my taste. The citrus taste never comes through. But my friend, who doesn't care for much citrus, really liked this brew.

Bottle. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Medium dirty piney nose. Common straw color. Good, moderate bitterness right away / mild caramel enters to create balance / good mildly sweet finish. Medium body. Very pleasant, not overwhelming in any direction.
