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.

Tried this on tap at the Yard House in Lone Tree, Colorado. Nice hoppy aroma. Fantastic and unique flavor profile with the sweet maltiness paired up with the Nelson hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (as Nelson Imperial IPA) from biershop.com. Pours amber with a small white head. Intense aroma of fresh hop, fruit, zest and bread. Medium sweetness, developing bitterness. Medium body, a sticky texture, low carbonation. Finish has more lasting bitterness, somewhat dry. A decent brew.

Bottle from notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted malts, grapefruit citrus, some resiny hops, mild to moderate bitterness, decent.

Med en IIPA forventer jeg en masse af del hele. Det fik jeg også, masser af humle og blomsteragtige smage. Fin øl.

foamy 1" head... good retention and lace... the brew is a polished orange. Nose is nice fruity hoppiness... tropical and citrus... a tad floral.. good malt backbone with touches of toast. Flavor pretty much mirrors the aroma with some mango and grapefruit zest thrown into the mix.. a tad maltier than I normally like, but it is certainly within style and never is "sweet".. finishes a bit pithy. Medium body for the style and.. carbonation may be a tad light, but it lends to a lush mouthfeel. Pretty good... and a good value at only about $2/bottle.

jamaty (1915) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Color moscatel, apenas espuma. Aroma marcado, lupulado. Uva también. En boca potente, licórica. Bien equilibrada con dulce uva y amargor notable al final sin perder el dulzor. Buen punto de gas que realza el conjunto. Notable.

Bebum (785) - USA - MAY 25, 2015
Amber, clear initially but turning hazy, tall and loose head. Medium body, full flavored, silky texture, hot, rich, mouthfeel, long but disappointing finish. Bitter, sweet, goodenough acidity, Very malty, barley candy, alcoholic flavors, bitter but not very flavorful hops. Many good qualities, would be better with more aromatic hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, brought by a friend!
As Nelson Imperial IPA! Pours hazy orange yellow with a small creamy head. Smell has strong fruity hops, caramel and herbs. Starts strong hoppy, very herbal, fruity with some grapes. Finish is fruity with grapes, orange and a hint of pear, but also very herbal and slight warming. Nice one!

Bottled. Slightly hazy amber colour with a mediumsized off-white head that leaves lace. Aroma is sweet fruits, some sweet malts as well as a stinging tone from the alcohol. Flavour is tropical fruit juice with some gluelike sweetness (alcohol + hop in the mix probably gives this kind of not too pleasant gluelike sweetish notes). Not all too bitter in the finish, but does lack something to balance the alcohol up.
