3.53/5  rDev -14.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Served from a 12oz bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Looks like an IPA. Keeps a nice slightly off-white head for a pretty long period. Laces the glass pretty heavily as you go.

Smell: Hops for sure. Flowery, maybe grassy. It smells like an IPA.

Taste: Hops first, everything else afterward. I've seen its aftertaste described a lot as "pine," and I can see that. I would love to take some of these to a camping trip to enjoy.

Mouthfeel: You know, I've never really enjoyed Troegs' "beer science" motifs. Their beers always seem to lack in mouthfeel, coming off almost unnatural. Maybe its that technostuff. Anyway, this kind of feels like a lot of Troegs' line, and that's not a great thing to me. I've had their stuff on draft and its much better in that environment.

Overall: It's kind of like their Hopback Amber Ale, but hoppier. It doesn't do much to distinguish itself besides its interesting "pine-y" character. Definitely still a "good" beer though.

3.15/5  rDev -23.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours golden and crystal clear..personally I like it a little murky. Aroma is mild citrus and a teeny bit dank. Taste reinforces the smell. I find this beer underwhelming. The bottle is just under a month old too. Probably a good intro ipa. I will not be picking this one up again. Now nugget nectar on the other hand....

4/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass at around 45°F

Appearance: I would have guessed this was a lager from the look of it. A bright golden color with a huge three finger off white head which resulted from an aggressive pour.

Smell: Mild yet balanced between citrus and pine notes

Taste: Crisp floral, citrusy, and pine hops along with a touch of bready malt. Grapefruit is prominent

Mouthfeel: Quite light for a DIPA with moderate dry bitterness

Overall: Not quite there as far as DIPA's go in my opinion. If this were labeled as a IPA, I may have given this a higher score. However, it's still tasty and I'll be grabbing for more from time to time.

Continue to be blown away from Troeg's, how did it take me so long to discover this east coast gem!? Perpetual may be almost on far with the Nugget. Drank three last night was was throughly impressed I can't get enough of those high ABV's with maximum drinkability. Hope my old faithful keeps a constant supply of this stuff coming!

Tröegs Perpetual IPA
12 oz brown bottle
Bottled 010314 on the side of the bottle in jet ink
Served in a 20 oz tulip glass

Pours a light amber with a yellow tint. A decent head forms on top, leaving a circular white streak across the glassware. Residuals of the head leave sticky lacings behind.

Predictable whiffs from a big time hoppy IPA. I detect citrus fruits and maybe some pineapple.

Toasted grain or biscuit backbone with a nice surge of hops on the finish. Flavors of orange & lime as well as a tropical fruit presence. Guava and kiwi sweetness flavors are mixed in there too. I get a mini taste of dry chalk as I take additional sips. Interesting.

What a pleasant IPA from Tröegs, I really like the dry hop effect on this beer. Super drinkable with a well hidden 7.5% ABV. I would gladly have another.
