COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deadlift Imperial IPA is unlike any Imperial IPA youíve ever lifted from the beer aisle. It has the strong hop flavor youíd 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. Deadliftís 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 Zealandís best hop growing region: South Islandís 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.

12oz bottle. Orange-brown color, with a small, steady, patchy head. The aroma is quite nice and unique, not unlike the tropical fruit tones of Summit hops, but maybe a little more dryness and a berry edge. Relatively soft on the palate, this is a great IIPA. Reminds me a lot of a fresh/wet hop beer, a nice broad hop profile. Well balanced, really spot on for the style.

Bottle. Pint glass. Pleasantly surprised. A taste thatís sophisticated , yet wonderfully understated. Doesnít taste like a box of cracker jacks like a lot of IPAs out there. Strong floral and citrus notes integrated with a unique, bitterly smooth hop flavor. Reminds me very much (if i my say) like pliny the elder. Abv is very well masked.

Served from a bottle from OTM. The appearance is a golden orange with a small off white head. The aromas are a little sweeter hop profile, orange, I do pick up a little of the berry the description talks about. The flavors follow the hop profile of the nose, a little mild in intensity. Orange/tangerine, light cinnamon, pine. A mild but good DIPA.

12 oz bottle. Golden amber pour, thin off-white head. Grapefruit, juicy floral hops, sweetness, caramel, and light fruit. Lighter and very easy drinking for an IIPA.

The Hype is for real!! This one is great. This is a classic true double IPA. Tastes very fresh. Very floral and pungent. Soft on the palate. Aftertaste is awesome. Sweetness is right on. Incredible enticing aroma.

on tap from papago 6/3/10. bronze-y copper color with a soft off white head and a ton of lacing types. aroma and flavor= holy grapefruit!... pith, meat and white grapefruit juice mixed with caramel and cream. the palate is a bit too sweet but it does have a nice bitter finish and lingering grapefruit aftertaste.... a bit one dimensional. the light body is crisp and really easy to drink however. 6/3/5/4/13/3.1

Draught at Pour 24, Las Vegas, NV. Clear deep golden, small head. Intense grapefruit aroma. Mid sweet with medium-full body. Very hoppy - salt, resin and grapefruit. Solidly malty, a bit syrupy.Very bitter finish. Packed with flavour, but a bit rough.

Bottle. Orange and pretty clear in my glass with a small white head. Nose has tropical fruits (mango, pineapple), blueberries, a little grass. Flavor is fairly sweet as a whole, with a pleasant fruity hop profile and medium bitterness. Iíll agree with Widmer: the Nelson Sauvin hops are really nice. A pretty enjoyable DIPA, and very easy to just sit back and drink. Definitely the best Iíve had from Widmer to date.

draft. One of the best named beers ever; huge hop profile... up front. Lacks a lingering palate. STILL, so many fruits going on mango, pineapple, hints of spruce too... simple amazing hops. Extra points for stupid-easy drinkability. More alcohol needed, maybe.

Not a great beer at all, not terrible, I wouldnt buy it again. I was expecting substantially more. hops were boring, body was a bit heavy, no really DIPA bite.
