3.38/5  rDev -17.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

22 oz bottle poured into a DFH snifter.

Pours a cloudy orange color with two fingers of foam that sticks around for a while and coats the glass as it recedes. Aroma is bitter/hoppy, with an almost spicy cinnamon hint to it.

First sip is pretty vanilla (not flavor). Relatively thin bodied, minimal sweetness, and long lingering bitterness. But the flavor portion seems to be lacking a bit, there is nothing that is really exciting my taste buds here. The thin body is a minus for me.
It does not live up to the amazing appearance.

They are calling this an Imperial Pale Ale, so I guess it kinda meets that description. But it is not something that I'd buy again. Very disappointed - I usually love Troeg's offerings.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours crystal clear and very pale gold with medium to small head. Nice lacing. Smell is big lemon and grapefruit citrus hops. Taste is much the same as the smell up front and through the finish. Very rarely have I had a beer so consistent from the smell through the finish. And in this case it's consistently citrus hops. Actually though it ends up being a bit one-note, even if that note is good. Full bodied. Fairly drinkable and a really solid IPA throughout.

I had the Perpetual IPA on tap at the Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh.

It was served in a pilsner style glass; the beer is deep gold with slight chill haze. It has a sticky off white head and lace.

It has an aroma of pine sap and something sweet like a slow poke

The taste is a nice mix of pine and citrus. Lots of caramel malts and a bit of something like taste of honey candy bar

The mouth is coating and slick

I like how this one is put together. My first beer from this venerable brewer & I look forward to having more.

Serving type: on-tap
