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.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Somebody must have broke in my house and left this bottle behind- or my Dad left it, one or the other. Amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is very hoppy, apricot, light alcohol, some residual sugar notes. Taste is a floral and fruit hoppiness, mixed with a slight bitterness, light alcohol, caramel.

elihapa (1535) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours light orange with a medium sized white head. Good lacing, but sub-par head retention. Aroma has bright pine, ripe orange and resin, a good tropical fruit kick. Palate is medium in fullness, with nice fruit-leather heft towards the finish. Flavor is blasts of orange and pine, big and bright. Not a DIPA with all that much depth, but for a brewery that I thought could only do light Hefes, this is a good run with hops.

mcberko (11172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 12 oz. bottle, pours hazy creamy golden orange with a white head. Aroma is very potent on the pine hops, citrus, herbs, bubblegum and caramel. Flavour is delicious, creamy pine hops and delicate caramel sweetness. Most excellent IIPA.

BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Aroma of earthy hops, freshly cut grass, and alcohol. Pours light amber, a bit hazy, with a small white head. Med-high sweetness balance the lower than expected bitterness well. Finish is rather abrupt for an IIPA, leaving more sweetness than hops. Not what is expected from an IIPA, but overall not particularly bad either.

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

leems (406) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Clear amber, white head. Floral slightly citrus, bitter, some floral hop flavor, definitely caramel. Finish is clean, alcohol doesn’t over power.

skortila (5002) - 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 (4023) - 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 (5370) - 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.
