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

Poured into a snifter.

4.0 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. Three fingers of dense foamy white head. Retention is about average and lots of honeycomb lacing is left.

4.5 S: Lots of tropical fruit in this. Mango and pineapple are the frontrunners with some grapefruit and orange underneath. Really pungent with a touch of cat piss and resin and also somewhat earthy. Malts add balancing neutral sweetness and are clean overall. The Troegs house character is evident though mild.

4.0 T: Moderate bitterness. Hops are tropical citrusy, earthy, and pungent. Orange and grapefruit are strongest with pineapple and pine in the background. Malts are biscuity though clean. There's a little crystal malt in there and some balancing sweetness. No evidence of booze.

4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and super smooth.

4.0 D: Good beer. Another solid offering from Troegs. I super hate the label art, but I can get over it.

Pours a golden orange with a nice two finger head into my Dogfish Head goblet. Citrus and earth notes abound in the nose -- really fantastic note upfront.

Juicy hops play well in the mouth with nice notes of grass, grapefruit and a touch of pine. Earthy and complex with a bit of hay and fruity funk in the finish. Finish is moderately dry, though, and is well-supported by an ample malt backbone. Very easy to drink. Juicy, fresh hop flavors win!

I'm slightly confused by the branding of this as an IPA -- I'm interpreting the label as Imperial Pale Ale much like Southern Tier's Hoppe (another Imperial Pale Ale). This ale lacks the massive hop onslaught that many Imperial IPAs (Imperial India Pale Ale) display. Both are enjoyable but I do think there is a distinction that should be noted. I think the Imperial Pale Ale category, like this Perpetual IPA, offers a more catholic canvas for hops to feature their delicacy as well as their wallop.

Totally down for this to be paired with BBQ chicken!

Big thanks to Stakem again.
Poured into my Parra Duvel tulip (thanks Mo)
A- Pours a lightly hazed gold with a solid 2 finger frothy head that lasts quite a long time. As I drink this beer some of the foam never leaves the side of the glass it clinged to. Extremely good looking brew.
S- The nose is already screaming bitter and I like it, lots of pine, grass and some fresh squeezed citrus. Also some nuttiness.
T- Very forward hop presence as it should be, definite grass and citrus presents its self with a great malt character to bring it all together.
M- Fairly light bodied and well carbonated. Extremely drinkable but also extremely flavorful.
O- I drink a ton of IPA's being from Southern California and this stands up to some of the best IPA's around here. Thanks again Adam really glad I got to try this one, another great beer from Troeg's, I've liked everything I have had from them.

Poured into a nonic pint.

Clean, light-golden and orange. Thick, white and foamy head that leaves massive amounts of sudsy lacing. Lots of carbonation is noted.

Big malt backbone with amounts of pine here and there. Generally a nice forest-like earthiness. Small hints of grapefruit/pomelo-like citrus qualities also. Probably more potent in a fresher bottle.

Opens with a rush of grapefruit flesh and pith. Smoothed out with sweetness and bready qualities of the malt. Ends with a thin coating of bitterness on the palate that quickly dries away.

Medium-bodied with decent carbonation. Easily drinkable, but honestly an underwhelming beer. More partial to the NN.

From 09/26/11 notes. Had on tap at Rattle n Hum in NYC. Served in a pint glass.

a - Pours a hazy bright yellow orange color with two inches of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Some nice head retention and light lacing left on the glass.

s - Smells of fruity malts, citrus hops, pine hops, and light floral notes. A ton of hops and fruit, very nice.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, floral hops, light pine hops, and pale fruity malts. Some decent bitterness from the hops, and again, lots of fruit.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation, super smooth and creamy. Really nice mouthfeel.

o - Overall a really good IPA and another good beer from Troegs. Lots of fresh hops and fruit in the nose and taste, and great mouthfeel. Would definitely buy some of this if I saw it in bottles.

Picked this up in Totowa since I love Troegs and this was one of the few new releases that wasn't an Octoberfest or Marzen. I expected something similar to the Hopback Amber and sure enough, that's what this turned out to be. Although it was slightly lighter in appearance than I envisioned, this still packed a decent hop wallop and was certainly worth the $4.99 that I paid for it!

Nice pour to this with a off-goldenrod hue to it and a moderate head. The lacing was surprisingly better than I expected and the aroma was decent, without any particular notes or hops standing out. As for the taste, it was solid like all the other Troegs beers that I've had. Lots of citrus and pine with a soapy mouthfeel and just a bit of grass to lighten things up. All of this faded away to a dry-hopped back that had a strong, but pleasurable burn to it. Nothing stood out in particular but the overall effect was quite soothing nevertheless.

The alcohol was perfect in this beer in the sense that it was present but couldn't be felt. While this wasn't as good as the Nugget Nectar, any fan of that or the Hopback Amber will be pleased with the purchase of this bomber. This would be a great IPA for the first-time drinker as its a good example of the style without being over-the-top. Cheers to Troegs for yet another highly enjoyable brew.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into two imperial pint glasses. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist! Extra special thanks to jayli for the hook-up!

Bottled 081011
Batch # 119714

A: Pours a lovely and hazy straw-gold color. A massive, four finger dallopy of soapy foam displays excellent retention and leaves an amazing amount of lace in the glass.

S: Heather smelled soap. I smelled soap...and vanilla. As it warms, some light citrus, pine, and grass clippings come out. Heath detected some apricot, as well.

T: See above. Quite herbal. Earthy moss, grass, and random spices.

M: A healthy burn when first sipping. Quite spicy and dry with a definite stick through the finish.

O: Good stuff. A little more herbal than we were hoping for. We were really in the mood for an IPA with loads of pine or tropical fruit. Still, very solid.

22oz bomber with a Bottled on Date of 081111. Pours a translucent golden straw color with a half inch of head. Tons of lacing. Nice whiff of hops. Piney with some citrus. Taste is more of the citrusy hops upfront followed by pine at the end. Fair amount of hop flavor but not all that bitter. Mostly bitter at the end along with some resinous qualities. Crisp and easy to drink. Somewhat thin of a mouthfeel but it works for this beer. Certainly reminiscent of Hopback Amber. Overall, its a pretty solid IPA worth trying again. Glad to see an Autumn release that's an IPA.

appearance: golden yellow with a white head that diminisheds to a 1/8" cap and doesn't leave. heavy, heavy lacing on the glass, too. quite impressive.

nose: so it kind of smelled like soap when i first opened it. Thank god that has changed. very grassy and hoppy. a classic pale ale aroma. a little lemon, but this is really just your straightforward pale ale smell. very enjoyable because it is done very well. i don't think any more is expected out of the style.

taste: clean, hop forward flavor. classic pale ale. this really just tastes like a slightly better version of sierra nevada pale ale in all honesty. it just reminds me a hell of a lot of that beer. I think it takes what sierra nevada did with its pale ale, fine tuned it, and succeeded. This is a great example of what a pale ale should be. I have no idea why this beer tasted and smelled like soap in the first two minutes after the pour from the bottle, but it has really opened up quite a bit.

mouthfeel: very awesome. well carbonated and quite viscous. that is a solid 4.5 in my book.

overall: this is really quite an impressive pale ale. stylistically excellent and a little soulful to boot. an excellent run at the classic sierra nevada pale. they really do taste quite similar, but i would choose troegs every time over it.

Bottle shared by djmiller92. Thanks Dave.

The beer is yellow, perhaps slightly orange, with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the tulip glass. The aroma is dominated by citrus and hops. Very nice. The flavor follows suit, with notes of tropical fruit, as well as a citrus and floral presence. Subtle notes of pine are present as well. Alcohol presence is well disguised. Malt is secondary to hops, as it should be. A really tasty IPA from an east coast brewery.

Straight pour from a 22oz pry-off bomber to a small tulip pint (12oz glass, I believe); there’s a freshness date, but I can barely make it out. I’m going to say bottled on August 11, 2011 at 9:41AM (BOTTLED ON 081111 09:41; BATCH 6 110712), but honestly I can barely make this out.

Appearance (5.0): What a pour! Three fingers of off-white, rocky head, bubbles of different sizes all around, fading to some heavy lacing on the side. Body is a beautiful orange-gold, definitely not hazy but just on the other side of clear.

Smell (4.5): Citrus and floral, pine way in the back. The bright, just-a-little-sweet citrus note is a great complement to the evident malt lying underneath. Malt smells pale and sweet, not strong but a nice undercurrent.

Taste (4.5): Citrus and piney hops do a little dance from the tip of your tongue all the way back, and they’re followed by quieter but a no less evident herbal, grassy bitterness that goes on and on—this is one of the longest finishes I’ve had in a long time. The citrus is like tart, not-too-sweet lemonade with orange undertones; the pine is, well, piney, and leads in the grassy, herbal finish. Underneath it all is just enough of a malt base to support the hop fireworks—lightly sweet, simple and pale. Nice. Yeast in the back, just a little, which I’ve found with other Tröegs beers, but I like it. No alcohol to speak of. My palate is so very happy.

Mouthfeel (4.0): Nice. Light but with just a bit of oiliness, which I appreciate; could use more slickness, but this is good. One thing I love about a good, big-hops IPA is the sensation of rocky chunks of foam slipping by your lips. Maybe that sounds weird, but the point is I like the mouthfeel quite a bit. Maybe a little more viscosity, more oil, but I appreciate the dry finish.

Overall (4.5): Damn good. They better start releasing this seasonally or something. Between this and Nugget Nectar, nobody can make the argument that the East Coast doesn’t know how to handle hops. I just want more, more, and more. Holy cow this beer is great.

Many thanks to MDaschaf for the chance to taste this one. Poured from bottle into Brooklyn tulip glass. Pours an astonishingly light orange/yellow color. Lighter than most IPAs I have ever had. nice head, not much retention. Smell- light citrus, sweet bready malt. Some tropical flavors like mango. Taste- hmm. something not quite right here. The hops aren't very noticable. This bottle is about 2 months old I think, but it has barely any hops profile left. This doesn't even resemble an IPA. Maybe like a weak pale ale? Dissapointing. Highly drinkable though...not much too it. Not very complex.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into my Stone IRS glass. it poured a clear, light amber color with a full, fluffy white head filling the top two inches of the glass. The head faded but left some great lacing as it did.

The aroma has a zesty, crisp hoppiness to it with some pine and grapefruit notes mixing with a little earthy, herbal spiciness. A little bit of the pale, bready malts peek through as well.

The taste mixes some herbal, earthy and slightly piny hop flavors with some juicier, grapefruit, orange and mango flavors. The finish shows a little more orange to it with some citrus rind bitterness lingering. Very nice mix of hoppiness to it.

The mouthfeel is a little below medium bodied with carbonation being moderate. Overall it was a very solid IPA with some very good hoppiness. The aroma had a little more of a herbal, earthy hoppiness while the taste brought out some very good juicy and fruity hoppiness. I definitely preferred the taste to the aroma, although they both were pretty good. Overall I thought it was a pretty good beer.

poured from bottle to glass. Hazy complexion with good lacing with a 1/4 inch head. Solid beer, good flavor, godd mouthfeel, nothing outstanding, but very appealing. Easy to drink, there are several of the style I prefer, but would buy this beer on a regular basis if it was available to me. Would take it as an extra, will not put it on my want list.

Poured into an E&J Cask & Cream glass on 9/5/11

Slightly faded golden-yellow color. Mostly clear aside from a very faint hazy sheen. One thumb head is smooth and fluffy, dissipating slowly to a thin, soapy layer. Lots of drippy lace remains right out of the gate and only improves over time.

Potent hops make this one seriously inviting aroma. Shots of grapefruit, lemon zest and pine. Undertones of orange peel. No, it isn't an absurdly layered hop aroma; it just smells really good. Malts are kept at bay; resting in back are notions of biscuit and a soft bready sweetness. The abv is moderate; no booziness here.

I don't think it tastes quite as good as it smells, but it's pretty close. There is more of a pine and lemon presence that suggests pine-sol in a manner the aroma didn't quite muster (though it is making me re-evaluate the aroma in that regard). Zesty grapefruit underneath. Moderate, dry bitterness allows hop flavors to shine. Malts are similarly diminutive; baked bread tones seem more inclined to round out the feel that the flavor. Nothing wrong with that.

Medium-full body with some inherit slickness. Said slickness seems to be the result of an oily hop feel as opposed to alcohol slickness; booziness simply isn't an issue with this critter. Carbonation is moderate; however, it rolling and perfectly fits the feel of the beer. Residual citrus pith and peel lingers with a trailing bitterness.

Perpetual IPA took me by surprise; I am impressed by the expressive hops and minimal malts. Troegs should consider releasing this on a regular basis; perhaps in six packs.

Look: Pours a light orange color that is almost completely see through 1/2 inch foamy head with good retention and some nice circular lacing

Smell: A slightly muted floral presence from the hops and not much else. Pretty much a one trick pony wish it had more

Taste: Upfront the hops create a artificial fruity flavor that I am not a big fan of backend there is not much more than a malt presence

Mouthfeel: Medium body and medium carbonation. Crisp and clean on the finish

Overall: This is just another east coast ipa that just doesnt stack up to some of the better examples of the style

22 oz bottle poured into a DFH snifter.

Pours a cloudy orange color with two fingers of foam that sticks around for a while and coats the glass as it recedes. Aroma is bitter/hoppy, with an almost spicy cinnamon hint to it.

First sip is pretty vanilla (not flavor). Relatively thin bodied, minimal sweetness, and long lingering bitterness. But the flavor portion seems to be lacking a bit, there is nothing that is really exciting my taste buds here. The thin body is a minus for me.
It does not live up to the amazing appearance.

They are calling this an Imperial Pale Ale, so I guess it kinda meets that description. But it is not something that I'd buy again. Very disappointed - I usually love Troeg's offerings.

Live review. Bottled on date was smeared a bit, but looked to be 08/11/11.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a Duvel tulip.

A: Pours a deep goldenish orange, leaves a 2 finger eggshell colored head that takes forever to settle into a 1/2" cap and leaves lacing everywhere. It refuses to let go of the sides of my glass. One of the absolute best IPA's I've seen. Flawless.

S: Wow, very nice. Orange, tangerine, pine, cracker, caramel, and slight grapefruit and floral notes. Wave upon wave upon wave. I have smelled better, but not many are better.

T: Very similar to the aroma. Orange, tangerine, pine. Bitter. Malt only provides some sweetness in this one, caramel and slightly honey like. Otherwise, hops are king. It is an IPA, after all. Finishes dry and decently bitter.

M: Oily, decent body. Carbonation is slightly prickly, but not overly so. Alcohol is well hidden.

O: A damn fine IPA. Hops are well done, body and malt are enough to keep it from being overwhelming. This one is a winner. Not my favorite IPA, but one I would drink anytime it was put in front of me. Recommended.

Gold with a bit of haze and a half inch of dense, long-lasting foam. The fine bubbles clung to the glass in streaks and sheets. Grapefruit hit my nose first, followed by dry malt and citrus rind, light pineapple fruitiness. Sturdy bitterness throughout with lingering citrusy hops with a bit of a resinous quality. Pale maltiness up front with mild fruitiness and faint alcohol spiciness kicking in later on. Medium bodied with fine, silky carbonation, fairly dry with no alcohol warmth. Highly drinkable -- this bomber didn't last very long. Overall, it was very clean and fresh tasting with a straightforward flavour profile, which really worked. A great addition to Troegs' line up.

A 22 ounce bottle from inlimbo77; thank you! Into a DFH signature glass...

Pours a wondrous, vibrant gold color with pure-white head, and lots of it. The body is hazy to the point of distortion, but not entirely opaque. The smell is of citrus, faint spice, more citrus, pine resin, straw, freshly cut grass, and bittering hops. An IPA scent for the ages. Taste follows suit, with grapefruit, orange, lemon, loads of hops, pine, grass, straw, and faint, faint caramel. A touch of cane sugar on the finish and in the mouth brings it down slightly, as it adds a sense of artificiality to it (not a gripe, just an observation). Mouthfeel is otherwise, crisp, bitter, and rejuvenating; finishes dry and slightly sticky. Overall, a great IPA that certainly stands out.

Perpetual Imperial Pale Ale is a lighter copper/amber color. Looks slightly hazy. Backlighting gives it a distinct orange hue. An off-white head covers the top and stands about a finger and a half tall. It’s quick to dissipate and leaves a sticky web of lace trailing down the glass.

The nose is very impressive. It’s definitely hoppy. Strong citric hop notes of orange and grapefruit are noted. There are also some piney and light floral hop scents. It’s a rather diverse mix. There are some malty notes in the mix, but they take a back seat to the hops. I like it. The malt base is somewhat bread-like and candied. There might be a light caramel scent there, but it’s not much. Very interesting. Alcohol is blended extremely well.

The flavor is quite good, but isn’t quite as good as the nose. The malt base has a cracker vibe to it and is sweet and sugary. There’s a little caramel, but it’s quite restrained and mild. Nice. Hops emerge quickly and add a citric grapefruit and orange flavor. Piney and floral flavors are also noted. I like the profile, whatever it is. It’s bitter and dry, but isn’t palate wrecking. Alcohol isn’t much of a factor at all. It’s masked very well. Finishes hoppy and dry.

Perpetual IPA has a light-medium body that is surprisingly smooth. Carbonation is dialed down nicely. This stuff goes down super easy. A bomber is a great serving size, but I’m not sure it’s enough. I’ll polish this one off easily and quickly.

I was a little apprehensive about the Imperial Pale Ale designation. I should’ve never doubted Tröegs. Those guys are too damn good. Perpetual IPA is a very impressive, very flavorful Imperial Pale Ale. I wouldn’t mind if the flavor were skewed a tad more in the hoppy direction, but it is damn good as it is. It features a lively hop flavor and is restrained on the malty side, especially with the caramel variety. Find a bomber! Very good stuff!

My favorite styles recently seem to be the multiple IPAs out there. That being said, I am pretty tough on this style because I can get it pretty easily from so many brands.

Overall this is an exceptional IPA. It smells and tastes great. There is multiple different hops. I get the citrus notes in the nose and body, but there are other hop flavors in there as well. This mix of hops yields a very well balanced IPA. The after bitterness isn't even there for long. Also, I didn't get the dry mouth associated with this level of hoppiness.

The coloring is a darker yellow, but my grade for the appearance is due to the head and lacing. On the pour I get a two and a half finger head. This dissipates down to a lingering small topping of foam. The result is some very pretty lacing on my glass (a fluted goblet style with tapering at the top).

I thoroughly recommend this beer. Good luck finding it. It has been sold out in many of the local stores. Oh well, here is my opportunity to try a new IPA beer.

poured from a 22oz bomber into a Newcastle glass.

Pours a golden yellow color with a huge fluffy white eggshell head. Retention is great on this and leave nice lacing. The smell is big time grapefruit and sour orange aromas. Taste is along the same lines, a little thin for a double IPA which is what the ABV conveys. Nice balance and crisp bite. Big grapefruit acidity and refreshing. Some negatives is the bitterness that is not supplemented with a prevalent malt base. Thin on the palate, but has an oily hop coating that makes me like this. Overall its a nice brew and for the price it is totally worth it. Would i try this again, yes, but i wouldn't search and and low for it.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip. Thanks to iadler for bringing this over.

Appearance: This has a deep golden color, lightly hazy with a small sea foam cap.

Smell: Lots of grassy and hay hops. Some light tropical fruit hoppiness and pale malt sweetness as well.

Taste: Soft honey biscuity sweet malt up front, then grassy and hay hops. After a sip or two, I get a little bit of grapefruit and mango hoppiness. Not super fruity or flavorful, but the finish is fairly bitter.

Mouthfeel: Sweet up front, grainy throughout, resiny hop presence behind the lips. Fuller than medium body, with light creamy carbonation.

Overall: Each aspect of this beer is good. Nothing is spectacular, but this is a solid beer.
