A 9% abv summer ale, why the hell not.
Hazy medium golden color with a bubbly frothy white head that slowly recedes. Earthy mineral light sweet maltiness with a solid sugary backdrop. Decent enough beer but nothing that was incredibly exciting.

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.
