Bottle from BevMo. Pours amber/gold with a 4-finger foamy off-white head. Very intense floral/citric aromas. Chewy full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is really floral/citric over a malt backbone that gets overwhelmed. This is really flavorful, but not harsh. Every sip is nose, taste. It’s great. Not a hint of heat. Just wonderful hoppiness. All the way through the long, lingering bitter finish.

Pours a hazed orange with a off white head that leaves lots of sticky lacing in my snifter. Aroma is citrus, pine, hops, and a good dose of bready malt. Flavor is citrus, bitter hops, malt, oily mouthfeel and a little chewy thick and sweet but overall a nice brew.

Citrus bite of hops aroma with a hint of vanilla after a golden pour and a small ring of head. Taste begins with a hint of malt and finishes strong with hops. Towards the end the hops get overshadowed a little bit. Medium bodied medium carbonation, smooth finish.

Poured into a Widmer pint glass with a basketball net? Alright. Color is an elegant amber rust color. Foamy head. Large hop profile. Sweet hops and citrus notes abound. Lots of earthy spice. Slightly dry flavor with sweet and spicy hops. Mouthfeel is fairly thick and resilient. Finish is dry and slight bitter with a small amount of citrus fruit. Pretty good!

Deadlift is listed as an Imperial IPA, however the flavors and bitterness are more akin to a standard IPA. That being said, it would be a good IPA, the hops give a nice floral and citrus flavors with an estimated 50-60 IBUs.
