look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Date tasted: July 26, 2013 ... Glassware: Maudite snifter... Occasion: more camp IPA talk leads to another IPA... Appearance: hazy peach-orange body with a creamsicle-inspiring white head that laces diligently and thins attractively... Aroma: powerful citrus flavors--peach/grapefruit one-two punch with bright hops uplifting the scent... Palate: mouth-expanding, pine cone missile-sized presence makes this a worthwhile sip, while the alcohol is comfortably tucked away...Taste: shockingly mellow, deliciously balanced; more sour than sweet, with the puckering nature being fully realized late in the glass...Overall: Came as a gift from brother Jer and the golf weekend (nice!), as well as a high recommendation from Mount Pocono Beverage's associate...two beers later, and I am still aftertasting the pleasure of this beer's hops cascade; tremendously drinkable at 7.5% ABV, with the "I'm Superman" vibe in effect after the beer is finished; another fine IPA that can fairly be in the discussion of the genre's top 25...

I like this beer a ton. It's slightly better than Torpedo, better than Nugget Nectar and it's cheap and available all year round.

A: Golden clear, white head that is present but not annoyingly persistent. Laces more than it tastes like it would.

S: Stonefruit, nectar, Pine, citrus, pineapple, just a touch of malt. Free of fermentation aroma.

T: Nice honeyed hop sensation, with balanced bitterness and aggressive aroma and flavor.

M: Drier than many east coast beers, and surprisingly so compared to its lacing. Fun to drink.

O: Happy to have it anytime. I actually like this one better in bottles. I would kill to get it in cans.

Pour is a nice golden straw with a slight haze. 1/2 finger of dense white head, lingering.

Nose is full of hops, flowers and slight citrus. Notes of lemon, grapefruit, honey and hibiscus dominate.

Taste is crisp with just a little brightness. Notes of grapefruit initially meld into a powerful nutty pine flavor. Lots of crisp bitter hops.

Feel is medium bodied and sharp. Just a little bit of sticky resin.

I feel like my rating is a bit dull, but this is just a really solid DIPA. Not mind blowing, but still really quality.

On draught at The Green Onion Pub in Utica, NY. Poured in a Saranac pint glass.

A - Light orange/copper/amber body. Quite clear with tons of rising bubbles. One finger white head that wasn't going anywhere.

S - Super citrusy. I swear, I can almost smell it while the bartender is pouring. Piney hops with zesty, citrus notes. Mostly grapefruit, oranges and pineapple.

T - Slight caramel malts and sticky citrus hops. The finish is bitter with some lingering pine and grassiness. Not as smooth on the finish.

M- Mouth feel is creamy with a moderate amount of carbonation. Dry pretty much the whole way through.

O - Pretty damn tasty IPA. Very grapefruit heavy with some nice pine and grassiness. Troeg's has crafted yet another winner.

Perpetual IPA pours a really nice, slightly hazy gold. It pours with a perfect creamy white head that sticks and holds very well.

The nose is pleasantly dominated by hops, pine and citrus, mostly. There's a slight caramel malt backbone, but it's really about the hops here.

The taste is more balanced than the aroma. A nice citrus hop flavor works with a bready malt body for a nice, smooth drink that finishes with a blast of bitter hops. There's a decent alcohol presence, but it's not overwhelming.

As far as mouthfeel goes, it's a medium-bodied beer that finishes pretty dry and bitter.

Overall, this is a really nice beer. Hop-forward but not overly so.

Great summer IPA. Nice clear pale yellow to straw in color, with white head that dissipated rather quickly. Smell is a bit lacking. Faintly watery, the hops smells good, but not quite as present as I'd like. Taste is wonderful though. What this beer lacks in aroma, it quickly makes up for in taste. Superbly grassy and a wonderful floral hoppiness to it. I get some apricot and a sweetness that I can only describe as when you chew on Dallisgrass on a hot day.
