look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a tulip glass

A: Straw in color pours to a white cloudy head dissipating fast to a white collar leaving some nice lacing. Very clear.

S: The nose is mild (relative to other big IPAs) but still there. Citrus fruit (oranges, tangerine, lemon) and a bit of pine.

T: The beer is hop forward and hits you first with a nice piney bitterness with fruit in the background. The hops are somewhat balanced out by a sweet malt character, but the hops override. The finish is long and bitter.

M: Round, smooth.

O: Perpetual is a nice looking beer and with a slight but tasty nose. A very good beer, but for me, the hop bitterness is a bit out of balance.

Poured from a bottle with a born on date of about a month ago into a pint glass. Reviewed from notes

A: Pours a crystal clear yellow color, with lots of carbonation bubbles flowing up through the glass. One finger of foamy white head caps off the glass.

S: I'm not getting much out of the smell at all here, just a light grassy hop flavor and an indistinct sweet malt one.

T: Very multi-faceted; I'm tasting grassy, earthy, piny, and citrus hop flavors throughout the flavor, but they never clash and flow nicely into one another. Very well balanced too, with a light sweetness making the beer highly drinkable.

M: Medium body and mid-lively carbonation, leading to a lightly bubbly, dry finish, which works well with the beer's hop flavors.

O: Solid beer, a nice one to go through a few bottles of over the course of the night, even if the beer's other characteristics don't quite match its awesome taste.

A- Pours a vibrant golden yellow into my DFH glass. Fluffy white 1 1/2 finger head that drips and grips the glass before leaving a delicate lacing all around.

S- Spicy tart grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine and a hint of tropical pineapple. Nice pungent grassiness with delicate hints of the lightly toasted malts. Pine punch gets better as it warms up.

T- Nice bitter citrus pith and pine bury the sweetness from the malts. This is all about the hops! Grapefruit, lemon, orange, sour apple and pineapples. Really piney! Wish the astringent bitter hops let the malts come thru a touch more.

M- Really mouth puckering! HOPS, HOPS, and MORE HOPS!!! Very dr, crisp finish with terrific carbonation.

O- Nice, reminds me a bit of SN Hoptimum. Grassy, piney and brash hop flavors! Certainly not ground breaking, nor is it even in my top 20 IPA's... but it was nice to try.
