Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This hopped-up version of Perpetual IPA is a result of field testing a new hop infusing system built by BrauKon. While testing the ‘Hop Gun,’ we wanted to experiment with its capacity so we tripled the dry-hop levels for Perpetual.

Poured out looking quite nice from the growler, Big white head on top plenty of lacing. The smell of the beer was much more intense than the normal Perpetual. The flavors seemed to be a little better as well. The mouthfeel is very good, was able to put down several fills of the glass on this one on the hot July day. I found this to be much better than the year round Perpetual on practically all levels.

On tap at the Troegs Tasting Room.

A - Pours a bright, crystal clear dark orange/gold color with light, but steady carbonation and an even white layer of creamy foam with a thick lacing.

S - Emphasis on the citrus with spicy aroma - herbal, citrus, piney, and light floral aroma.

T - Lots of spicy citrus and pine. More spicy orange, grapefruit citrus tang compared to the "regular" Perpetual with a moderate lingering spicy, herbal citrus bitterness.

M - Medium to heavy medium body with gentle, creamy carbonation.

O - Perpetual on steroids and and takes an already really good beer to the next level. A definite winner.

64 oz. growler purchased from the brewery on 6/15/13 (thanks, 1sophrosyne1!) unclear bottling date, poured into my FFF Teku glass, drank 6/24/13 over several hours.

A: 4.75 - straw golden-yellow coloration, impressive clarity (can both see or read through), eggshell white head dissipates into subtle glass lacing with moderate middle residuals, medium alcohol legs

S: 4.75 - wow, hop bomb...lots of grapefruit and dank notes up-front and herbal/spicy aroma in the background (likely from Nugget)...also picking up some onion and garlic notes

T: 4.50 - on the anterior tongue, it's what you'd expect from the aroma with a big hop presence but not overly bitter, dry but not overly so (accentuates the hop character well)

M: 4.75 - full-bodied with thick hop oils coating the tongue, 7.5% is hidden by the hops; moderate-to-large carbonation and alcohol legs

O: 4.75 - wow! I have had Perpetual before, but, like others have wrote below, this triple dry-hopped example takes it to the next (world-class) level; this reminds me of a slightly more dirty version of Founders Double Trouble that still hits all the high notes for me: huge grapefruit and onion/garlic aroma, slap of bitterness on the anterior tongue and super dry; anyway, I recommend a visit to the brewery or growler trade to get this beer if you already like Perpetual and love hop-forward imperial IPAs!

Poured from a growler into a 14 oz goblet.

A: Pours a golden yellow with a nice head- solid retention for at least one minute, and lacy film remains atop the liquid 15 mins in. Foam clings tightly to the glass with every movement. The liquid is quite translucent. Bubbles from the carbonation constantly rise to the surface throughout the experience.

S: This tripple hopped version of Perpetual can knock you over with the smell from the first pour; aroma from the head is very robust, smelling more earthy than fruity to me -cut grass, hemp, pine, bark. Vague floral notes do shine through as well, in a way that beautifully compliments (and importantly - not competes) with the earthy backbone.

T: This IPA tastes impressively round for its hoppyness and scratch status. In my opinion, Troegs should just replace Perpetual with this version of it :) The extra hops add much more (dare I say needed) flavor to this IPA. The creation tastes similar to its smell. Not overly aggressive in the mouthfeel; balanced. The bitterness stands out immediately and is met with a sweetness that is again, largely earthy - nondescript florally. It's spice is certainly there, but less aggressive than other IPAs. The bitterness stays on the tongue through the swallow and is met, with delay, to grassy sweetness. The lingering taste is an extremely pleasant balance of bitter and sweet.

M: Medium bodied with nice moderate carbonation. Crisp. Initial hit on the tongue is hop. The spice plays around in your mouth right after and is immediately followed by light sweetness.

O: A significant improvement on Perpetual IPA. Much more noticeable character than the original, that is nicely balanced and dangerously drinkable. A great IPA showcasing more earthy notes than citrus. Its components taste and smell simple; coherent; complementary. I absolutely hope to have this again.
