I'm hoping the name of this kit is meant as a joke...

or maybe somebody from NB was reading the 'Black IPA' thread a few weeks ago.

Whaddya mean a joke?  Anything with "imperial" in front of just has to be better, right?  And if you want even better than that, call it "double imperial".

Seriously, though, kinda brings up one of my pet peeves.  Why is it that so many people have to mention the ABV and IBU of what they're drinking (can understand it for something you've made).  I think if you feel the need to talk about those all the time, maybe you're not drinking for the right reasons.  Sorta like the guy who goes in and order the super-thermonuclear-extra-double-hot wings not because he actually likes them but because he thinks it makes him look like a real tough-guy.

In a lot of ways it sounds like a throwback mild to me, like the Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby Mild from England that comes in at 6%

Yes, then why be super lame and call it an "Imperial Mild"?  Just call it a traditional mild...seriously, I remember a thread about this very topic over at NB...such a ridiculous name for a beer.  Black IPA is another one that really gets to me too...

Yep, I think it's pretty lame too.  How about a blonde imperial stout?  ;D
