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.

Rating #951, flaske fra Sydhavsdruen

Let tåget, ravgylden øl med lille, tæt gulhvidt skum. Kniplingsmønster på glassets sider, som øllet bliver drukket. Lækker duft med hindbær, jordbær og solbær - typisk amerikansk humlefryd. Der anes også karamel, hyldeblomst og en smule gær. Lækker smag af overmodne blommer og solbær, der bliver til masser af bitterhumle, hvidpeber og en stærk krydret smag der næsten slår over i salmiakpulver. Hele vejen igennem findes en rigtig god balance mellem sød og bitter. Utroligt lang bitter eftersmag med en snert af salmiakpulver. Humlen river i tandkødet som snus. Det er første gang jeg har været udsat for det. Utroligt blød i munden, men kunne være lidt tykkere uden at det ville være en dårlig ting. Den anden rigtig gode øl, som jeg har smag fra Widmer Brothers. Det er ikke sidste gang, jeg køber noget fra det bryggeri.

Hermod (5456) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2014
355ml bottle as Nelson IIPA, enjoyed at home. Hazy, light amber, lasting, lacing, thick white head. Does not get much better looking than this. Aroma has pine, caramel and berries, some herbal notes perhaps. Flavor has grapefruit, strong bitterness, balanced by the growing sweetness in the finish. Probably not very fresh, but this is enjoyable. This is so balanced. Lacks thr fresh fruitiness, but other than that, a very good IIPA.

I had a bottle of Nelson imperial IPA, but apparently this is the same with different name. Loved this really much, full bodied, full of fruity aromas, tropical fruits. A bit of sweetness balanced with the strong alcohol.

When I g0t t0 this beer’s page and saw the sc0res, I felt like I must have drunk a different beer. What p0ured 0ut 0f my b0mber 0f Nels0n Imperial IPA didn’t seem like a d0uble IPA 0r an IPA. Maybe an APA. It had a pale amber, slightly hazy b0dy with a sustained yet m0dest fizzy head that pr0duced s0me slippery lace. It had a light ar0ma 0f malty sweetness and s0me earthiness. Very s0ft m0uthfeel. It was als0 light 0n the flav0r, n0t very bitter, just s0me malty sweetness and n0 alc0h0l. 0ld b0ttle? Bad b0ttle? I’ll revisit this, when s0me0ne else is paying.
