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.

On tap at Mahars. Super tangy grapefruit taste, really nice. Could have been heavier though, still good.

Clear amber, white head. Floral slightly citrus, bitter, some floral hop flavor, definitely caramel. Finish is clean, alcohol doesn’t over power.

skortila (4749) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2010
West USA trip 2010. On tap @ PIB. The aroma has citrus, aprikot fruitiness. Clear, golden coloured with a white head. The taste is a bit sweet with lots of fruity hops and it has a bitter dry end.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - AUG 7, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours clear light amber with a sticky white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, bubble gum, caramel and citrus. The flavor is very bitter but not face puckering, the caramel malt sweetness balances it out nicely, very light alcohol taste. Medium dryish body with average carbonation and a smooth frothy mouth feel. I like this one a lot, first real taste of the Nelson Sauvin hops and I really like them, aroma to me is similar to Simco hops but without as much cat piss.

IrishBoy (3923) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 4, 2010
12 oz bottle from Bevmo Salinas. Nose of ivy, and avocado leaves (very differnent hop aromas). Clear amber orange with a small beige head. Flavor is light bitterness, ivy, and a slight caramel malt background. Finishes with the ivy and light bitterness. It seems to me much as the commericial description describes it. Very different hop notes but quite good!

nuplastikk (4917) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 3, 2010
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.

mgmike4 (30) - valencia, California, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Bottle. Pint glass. Pleasantly surprised. A taste that’s sophisticated , yet wonderfully understated. Doesn’t 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.

danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 1, 2010
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.

JohnnyJ (4785) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 1, 2010
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.
