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.

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. I’ll 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 I’ve 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.

[2944-20100625] Sample. Mango peach fruit aroma has a hint of sweat. Clear, amber orange body with a quick foamy white head. Mango fruit hops syrup flavour. Medium body. Interesting fruitiness, very mango.
Overheard: "Tastes like juice."

MarinaMarket (211) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Wow...pretty damn good...huge hints of grapefruit on the first sip, healthy DIPA but not over-bearing, and man, what a kick! Very fruity/citrus on the nose, pleasant, robust, and very enjoyable.

Nalu (216) - Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Bottle. Clear dark gold, white head fades to a medium lace. Sweet/fruit hop aroma, berry flavor balanced with medium-roast malt. Medium body with notable hops but a constant sweetness all through to the finish. Lightly carbonated. The nose and start is outstanding, middle and finish need a bit of work.

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a clear copper gold with a creamy white head that leaves good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a sweet pine hop. Thin mouthfeel with a smooth piney hops with grapefruit and nice smooth finish. Hides the alcohol well, a very impressive IIPA from Widmer.
