It came in just under 7% ABV, so I wouldn't exactly call it "Imperial". It finished around 1.025, so a bit high, hence the malty mouthfeel. I have that problem with pretty much every PM brew I do, finishing too high... I can't wait to go all-grain.

So glad it turned out well for you! I have also brewed this with Simcoe in place of the cascade at the end of the boil...that was really good too!

im a slave for simcoe, though. they fit so well with this recipe that i dont want to make the change. plus, i've been getting my hops from our local brewery ($16/lb!) so 'getting my mitts' on them is basically just me getting off my ass to make the 5 min bike ride downtown.

That is a great deal for Simcoe! They are usually the most expensive variety at the homebrew store. I just paid 4.99 for 2 oz.

as this was the greatest beer i've brewed, i had to have another go at it. last night i put it out again, but this time i changed teh hop schedule to

0.5oz Simcoe 60min
0.5oz Cascade 60min
1.0oz Amarillo 30min
.25oz Simcoe 5min
.25oz Cascade 5min
.25oz Simcoe 0min
.25oz Cascade 0min

i'll prob keep the same dry hop schedule, or maybe boost both the simcoe and the cascade to .75oz.

we'll see how that goes.

I am going to brew this again soon and I am also going to play with the hops, I like your idea. I think more late hops is the call. Let me know how this turns out.

Brewed again 5/30/10

Subbed the crystal 80 for crystal 120
Mashed a bit higher: 155f
1 oz Columbus added at flameout and 1/2 oz in dry hop-

Dry hopping with Cascade, Amarillo, Columbus and Simcoe- .5 oz each in the keg.

Taste: AWESOME! Slightly sweeter, but more complex than last batch due to higher mash temp, and the C120. The hops are sightly muted by the sweetness-but the dry hop aroma makes up for that.
