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.

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.

bomber from WF

a: served in a small chalice, well-retained off-white head atop a light to medium golden-amber colored ale

s: familiar pine hops accompany a base of moderately sweet pale malts, some light or moderate caramelization but fairly light and in balance - a nod to the "imperial pale ale" designation, nicely resinous, good stuff

m: carbonation on the lighter side, body on the lower end of the medium range, a little boring as the feel goes, but fine

t: opens with steeped pine needle hops and pale malts bringing a medium sweetness level, hops resinous and sappy, but bright and vivid

o: a fine and tasty ipa, if a bit unremarkable and lost in the crowd of solid ipas out there these days, not sure the "imperial pale" name is much more than marketing - this fits in with the typical low-moderate malt, high hop ipa

On tap at Mad Mex keep the pint promo. Nice carbonation. Served with little head but it could be the bar's glass - who really knows. Smells of a citrus, grapefruit bomb. Tastes great. Nice & bitter, dry. Little bit of crystal to back up the hops. Excellent and well done. Could drink a lot of these through and through. Glad to have another solid, high-quality IPA here in PA.

Cloudy yellowish-orange pour with a nearly non existent head: the nose is pronounced grapefruit and yeast. Upon tasting, Perpetual IPA lets your palate know who's boss right from the get-go!

The first tongue slapping sip acclimates your palate for the next grapefruit bomb blast with an interesting yeasty character. After the initial shock to the palate, this bitter IIPA quickly grows on you, and each sip seems to offer a different flavor characteristic from the extreme hopiness.
There is an underlying yeastiness in the aftertaste that detracts a bit from the overall character of the hops.

The mouthfeel is on the hefty side of medium, slightly resinous, carbonation about perfect, and the long yeasty pink grapefruit aftertaste stays with you for a while. If you like your Double IPA on the sweet side, this might not be your bag, but if you enjoy a bitter grapefruit bomb that is well balanced and inviting, this is a nice choice.
