look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Slightly hazy yellow amber in color. Forms a moderate sized, bright white head. Excellent retention and plenty of lacing.

S: Aroma is dry. Grapefruit and citrus pith. There is a hint of juicier citrus and a little pine, but the grapefruit dominates.

T: Taste is likewise dry. There is a mix of pithy grapefruit and light pine notes. Light pale malts, maybe a little biscuit. Finish is dry and astringent.

M: Medium bodied. Heavier carbonation. Moderate, but persistent bitterness.

O: I was surprised to see this one listed as a double IPA, since it drinks like a single IPA. As a beer in general, it's pretty good with a nice dose of hops, but as a DIPA, I'm not overly impressed.

Troegs Brewing Company - Perpetual IPA - 12fl oz bottle

Another brew given to me as part of an "overstock transfer" from Hendry (reviewer on here).

Look - Pours slightly hazy copper-yellow with a small, soapy head that dissipates quickly. Decent lacing. Minimal carbonation.

Smell - Citrus (grapefruitish) & pine hops, slight sweet malts hiding underneath.

Taste - BAM! Snappy hop kick that tastes like it smells but the pine is up front and the citrus is underneath, tint of malts for some blending. Excellent hop bomb, one of those palate wrecking brews for sure.

Mouthfeel - Hops rest (piney) and are constantly changing with this one, perpetually evolving as you drink it. Very drinkable and drinking this is a discovery process.

Overall - Solid DIPA, thoroughly enjoyed. While the malt was pretty much nowhere to be seen, I was not disappointed and I did not find myself looking for it. Great brew.

4.09/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Bottle poured into glass yeilds a large creamy head that recedes very slowly and with nice retention. Bright straw in color and very translucent. Leaves heavy lacing down glass. Smells of resin, grapefruit, and bready malt.

Taste starts with grapefruit, floral, bread, and pale malt. Ends with piney resin and a bit of funk. Has a crisp but very dry finish. Slightly creamy, lighter moutfeel for an IIPA with moderate-heavy carbonation. I like the balance of flavor in this one, lighter and more drinkable than some other IIPA's.
