COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deadlift Imperial IPA is unlike any Imperial IPA you’ve ever lifted from the beer aisle. It has the strong hop flavor you’d expect from an Imperial IPA but no heaviness that could weigh down your desire to take another sip. The unique flavor stems in part from Nelson Sauvin hops imported from New Zealand. Deadlift’s other component, a simple but fully braced malt backbone muscles up enough malty sweetness and caramel character to spot the incredibly robust hop flavor and aroma.

Deadlift Imperial IPA uses Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand’s best hop growing region: South Island’s Nelson. This region produces some of the most flavorful hops found anywhere. These hops have an intense citrus, fruity, berry-like aroma and flavor that makes them unique. The result will surely be a welcome workout for your taste buds.

Good Nilson IPA without being fantastic. Got a shock when I saw it to be 8.6% I had guessed at 7%.

SirLimpsalot (2361) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
@Basunen: Doften lite svag söt honung, smaken även den tydlig söt men med en snygg balans mot lite syrligare frukter. Len mjuk munkänsla, inte alls så tokig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
