4.2/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a light, golden yellow with a slight bright white head. Worthwhile lacing. Great aroma. Juicy fruits. Tropical formost, with flowers and Nugget Nectar like grapefruit and deliciously sweet malt aroma in the background. Nice quick hop bursts to begin the beer. More floral and grassy than in the aroma. Actually, very floral and herbal. The tropical hops are more subdued, but have their moments. Good and fast sweet malt background before solid bittering pine. Really compact flavor, comes and goes and finishes dry, but a whole lot of action packed in it.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into an imperial pint glass

A: This beer pours extremely clear with a blonde pale color. This beer has about a one-figer head with white foam.

S: Fresh, citrus-piney aroma

T: Smooth and really balanced with a herbal hop presence and sweet malty base.

M: Balanced and medium bodied ale with a slight
bitter piney feel and a balanced finish

O: This beer is awesome, I would definitely recommend it. Its really balanced with a nice piney feel thats not over the top. A well made beer thats dangerous at 7.5%. I can only imagine its a lot better on draft.

Picked this up in Buffalo. Pours a clear golden copper with good carbonation. Tastes of citrus and pine, with a good hop bitterness. Good mouthfeel and quite easy to drink. This was a pretty solid imperial pale ale overall. I have to say though, this got a lot of hype on the forums and I didn't see where that was coming from. Good beer, but not outstanding.

Bottle: Poured a deep clear blonde color ale with a large foamy white head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of powerful floral aroma with some green hops notes and a light sweet malt base is very well done and very enticing. Taste is dominated by huge floral hops aroma with light green hops notes and very little bitterness with some lightly sweet malt notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. I really enjoyed the floral notes and if I were to compare I would say this is a notch below Heady Topper for floral notes but still ay ahead of most IIPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Lightly hazy blonde colour, ring of white head with very little lace hanging around. Smell is really well hopped, pine with some earthy lemony citrus, and bit of fruitiness, a mild underlying mat and a bit of faint alcohol detected as well. Taste is also quite hoppy, citrus, orange and lemon, some pine, malty towards the finish, assertive bitterness throughout, more hops in the aftertaste. Light prickly drying carbonation, some hop oils and medium bodied. Really enjoyable IPA that drinks really quickly, something I would order again, solid stuff.

Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into a Relic Brewing Co. imperial pint glass.

A: Pours a pale, hazy, golden yellow color with good clarity beneath a two-finger head of frothy white foam which disappears quickly, leaving a bubbly coating and some sticky lace.

S: Lush, ripe citrus fruits, grapefruit, orange rind, spicy, herbal hop resins and floral esters that match with peppery aromas.

T: Spicy, sweet malts hit the palate up front with loads of tropical fruit and flowery malt flavors. A spicy, minty and herbal hop presence comes into the foreground, finishing bready with a lemony flavor. The finish is bitter, grassy and slightly chewy with a very nice, smooth, balanced malt flavor about it.

M: Medium-full bodied ale with a slight creaminess and puckering bitter resins that bring out more citrus flavors from the malt. The finish is remarkably balanced for a hoppy brew.

O: A very good imperial pale ale, Perpetual IPA brings the grandeur of a DIPA with a high IBU count and 7.5% ABV, but the smooth, creamy malt flavors beckon the balance of a solid American Pale Ale. A dangerously drinkable brew for hopheads and fans of big pale ales.

Bottle (2012)

Thanks to the Pittsburgh gang for sending this to the Cali gang!

Clear golden orange with not a lot of visible carbonation. There's not much head at all on this beer, though it does leave lines of stick down the glass.

Nice, well-rounded aroma of citrus flesh and zest and some pine. Nothing leaps out of the glass though.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, with citrus and pine combining nicely, along with a bit of sweetness. Low bitterness.

Medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation.

Good, but unspectacular.
