3.43/5 rDev -18.5%
Thanks to Melissa for bringing this back from Chicago! Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Westbrook pint glass.
A: Pours a dark yellow-orange color. Very very hazy - it looks like a lot of yeast in suspension despite a gentle pour and decantation. Forms a one-finger white head and has low visible carbonation.
S: Bright citrusy orange hops, yeasty, and sweet bready malts with some caramel character.
T: Citrus hops up front - big orange flavos - and some sweet candied fruit, caramel-covered malts, and a thick yeasty character. Hang is citrus and malt sweetness.
M: Mouthfeel is full and nearly creamy. Low alcohol presence and carbonation sensation.
O: The label says "Imperial English-Style Summer Ale". I went into this with no idea what that was supposed to mean. It was a citrus hop-forward IPA with significantly sweet malts. The citrus hop profile doesn't mesh well with the "English" labeling, and I wish the malts weren't so sweet. It wasn't bad, but I wouldn't be in a hurry to repeat it either.

Taste - Wow is this one nice and smooth. Nice bitter start and a smooth citrus finish
Mouthfeel - This one was very smooth and almost tasted like it was on nitro.
