4.21/5 rDev +2.7%
Clear and bright straw pour, clumpy thick white head, two fingers in height. Excellent retention and loads of messy lacing on the glass. Very inviting.
Floral and bright, grapefruit rind, pineapple, and woven pine and bold dried grasses. Malt has some balancing honey and candied fruit, slight touch of alcohol.
Caramel and honey malt is equally balanced and eager to part ways to let in the springy grassy and delicate citrus flavors of the hops. Floral and delicate flavors dance across the palate leaving a clean, drying bitterness and lingering pine.
Easily drinkable, active carbonation has tight bubbles that smooth out the drink. Alcohol is very well hidden and the drying effect is a big player.
A winner, knocked down this one in an instant and would come back for more. Mouthfeel is damn near perfect, Very clean, easy and flavorful, bright IPA. If this were readily available on the west coast it would be my go to canned beer.

Had on-tap at a bowling alley. Reviewing from brief notes.
A: Slightly hazy golden amber with a thick, creamy head. Great retention and tons of lacing down the glass.
S: Grapefruit, light notes of pineapple and orange peel. Slightly floral. Malty character underneath.
T: Fresh grapefruit, herbal hops, excellent rush of bitterness rounded off by a generous amount of malt that isn't overly sweet, but provides balance.
M: Above average mouthfeel. Medium-full body with crisp carbonation. Extremely smooth, tad bit creamy. Superbly easy to drink, especially for a brew sitting at 7.5% ABV.
O: Troegs rarely disappoints. Perpetual IPA , I think, is towards the top of the list of great Troegs brews. Well-balanced, fresh flavors combined with a wonderful mouth feel made for an easy-drinking, satisfying IPA that can be enjoyed on a night out or a night in. I'd have no second thoughts about recommending this.

A- Golden orange in color and crystal clear. White head that leaves a decent lacing on the glass.
S- Citrus, pine, sweet malts.
T- Follows nose with a nice piney dry finish.
M- This stuff is dangerous. Light to medium body that is so smooth. I could drink 2 or 3 of these no problem.
O- This is just a rock solid IPA/DIPA. Hits all the right notes. I'll buy again.
