look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours hazy pale orange in color with a thin half finger white head that retains nicely.

Smell is great. Fresh citrus hops reminiscent of mandarin oranges and a moderate piney resin aroma. Sweet smelling grainy pale malt is on the back end.

Taste follows the nose. Mildly sweet grainy malt is forward along with a citrus hoppy tang that cuts through the sweetness of the malt. Mild piney bitterness follows that is very nicely balanced and not overdone at all.

Mouthfeel is crisp refreshing, light yet good bodied. Mild carbonation and juicy hops make this very drinkable.

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.
