I think it's okay not to rate entirely to style. I can think of a handful of times a brewer has called a beer an imperial IPA at 7-8%. For example, Lagunitas Sucks or Troegs Perpetual; was it awesome? Hell yes. Was it an imperial IPA? Probably not. Should the score really suffer because I don't believe the brewer's title fit my personal belief of what an imperial IPA really should be? I mean, how do you compare SUCKS to 120?
