Troegs markets this beer as an “imperial pale ale,” but that’s not really a real style, and anyone who has quaffed this hoppy delight instantly recognizes all of the hallmarks of what tastes surprisingly closer to a hopped-up west coast-style IPA than the more balanced, maltier IPAs typically favored by east coast brewers. Perpetual boasts six different hop varieties — boiled with Bravo, Chinook and Mt. Hood; hopped back with Mt. Hood and Nugget; and dry-hopped with Citra and Cascade — and the Citra and Cascade dry-hop is the dead giveaway for why Perpetual exudes a delightfully citric west coast-style aroma and flavor profile. As an unapologetic hop head and New Yorker, I tend to scoff at certain east coast takes on my favorite style, but Perpetual is an IPA the northeast can be proud of.
