Troegs Perpetual IPA is actually an Imperial Pale Ale, not an India Pale Ale; this IPA is 7.50% ABV and is dry hopped for an intense profile. Troegs Perpetual IPA pours out a golden hue with a tall white head that retains well and laces as it settles. The nose of this American Double/Imperial IPA is of citrus hops, with hints of grass, yeast, and sweet malts. Perpetual IPA tastes as it smells, with fruity esters, traces of alcohol, and a light malt backbone�this is an east coast IPA. This ale feels smooth on the tongue with mild carbonation. Look for Troegs Perpetual IPA year round in bottles, growlers, casks, and on-tap. Try this ale in a snifter, tulip, or oversized wine glass at 50-55�F. Under the right conditions, this beer can be cellared for a few seasons. Perpetual IPA is a good match for peppery or sharp cheeses, or grilled meats.
