A. Nice clear bronze color, with a massive foamy white head and tons of lacing. Some thick gelatinous sediment.

S. Very nice hoppy scent.

T. Very nice, sweet, hoppy taste. Quite smooth. Fruity. Citrus and banana. A bit of a vegetable taste.

M. Smooth, not too sour at the back, and not carbonated that much.

O. Balanced and quite easy to drink. Some flavor, but not much of a real bite. Good and refreshing IPA.

Perpetual IPA was poured from a can into a pint glass. pours a clear golden color with a big white head. Decent retention and lacing

Smells good, mostly piney hops.

Tastes great. Piney and citrus IPA,, perhaps a a little malt balance from bready malt, but mostly a nice hoppy, bitter IPA.

Mouthfeel is rich, crisp and bitter. My kind of IPA.

Overall an outstanding IPA.

Review from notes taken while I enjoyed a pint on tap at La Cave Du Vin September 9th, 2012. I do not recall the price.

A Creamy head over a translucent light copper body. Once again, deifficult with low light at La Cave. 3.5

S Floral hops and little else. A little bit “one note” for me. 3.0

T Solid IPA taste. Bitter hops which are not very balanced. The bitterness lingers on the back of my tongue for a while. Hop heads rejoice! 3.0

M Moderate feel with bitter hops. 3.5

D/O Drinkability is only fair. Overall this is a fair beer from Troegs, home of some of my all time favorite beers including Troegs Pale Ale which I would drink readily before this one. 3.0

Picked this up at DecCicco's in Brewster, NY. An amazingly clear yellow amber color with a very solid white head that deflates to a full but thin cover and a robust web of lacing. The aroma brings a mild citrus bread straw grass deal. A bit too mild to me but not unpleasant. The flavor brings a somewhat harsh grass hop with a nice grainy caramel bread. There’s a hint of alcohol but the grassy grain bite is the dominant theme. It offers a very liquid medium body that feels a bit glassy with very adequate carbonation. I detected a vague sulphur that wasn’t a bad thing. Toasted grains and lots of tongue grabbing hop bitterness. I like it plenty! Refreshing and a palate pleaser.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a golden straw orange with an average (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that was mostly lasting, finally reducing to a few puddles and a medium collar with some excellent sticky spotty lacing.

The aroma was of floral and citrus hops, grain malts and a sweet yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit) and a quite noticeable sweet fruity ester.

The taste was a little bitter-sweet with a hint of caramel and had a mild fruitiness from the onset, and then became quite a bit bitterer and nice and hoppy with a definite citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted a very long time proceeding the swallow with a hoppy bitter taste that was left to linger for quite a while longer.

Mouthfeel was a few shades beyond light in body and was dry in texture with a moderate carbonation.

Overall an extremely well balanced IPA, slightly fruity at the start and pleasurably bitter towards the end with a great drinkability...

A: The beer is slightly hazy straw yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. There are some fine particles visible floating in suspension. It poured with a finger high dense white head that has excellent retention properties, consistently leaving a half finger high head covering the surface as well as lots of lacy rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of citrus hops in the nose.
T: The taste is somewhat more complex than the smell, having flavors of both citrusy and spicy hops along with a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. The finish leaves your mouth relatively dry.
O: This IPA is packed with hop aromas and flavors but is rather well balanced and quite easy to drink. No traces of alcohol are perceptible in the taste.
