Deadlift Imperial IPA is unlike any Imperial IPA youve ever lifted from the beer aisle. It has the strong hop flavor youd 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. Deadlifts 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 Zealands best hop growing region: South Islands 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.

12oz bottle from The Grapevine
Appearance: Slightly hazy golden with a small white head and some lacing
Aroma: Fruity, sweet grapes and malts
Taste: Very fruity, pine and bitterness in the finish
I really like this beer. This is the second beer Ive drank with Nelson Sauvin hops, they deliver a sweet and fruity aroma and taste. The alcohol is very well hidden and the hops are not overbearing, it is a well balanced beer.

22oz bottle labeled Series 924 Nelson Imperial IPA
I am surprised this is the same beer. This beer was all caramel with some grapefruit. It was very sweet. Footbalmed most of the bottle.
I wont change my original score but here it is: 6/3/5/2/12 = 2.8

obguthr (6180) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Draft: Ammonia and grapefruit peel aroma. My friend describes it as cat piss, but Im more objective. Clear amber, medium head, some lacing. Malty flavor with rosehip and orange peel accents. Grapefruit peel finish. Quite nice.

Suttree (6297) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 21, 2010
I tend to get excited to try new DIPAs. Beers from Widmer...not so much. This was surprisingly good. Fairly thin bodied, which works here. Big Pine and grapefruit in the aroma. Lots of pine and citrus in the flavor, as well. Some smoky notes, as well. Drifts a little close to regular IPA territory, but Im OK with that.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Tap at Blue Dog. Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a medium creamy white head. Aroma of caramel and lots of it, some citrusy hop notes. Flavor is a ton of caramel, pine, orange and toffee.

Enniskillen (2046) - 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 (1552) - 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 (16609) - 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.

Clear amber, white head. Floral slightly citrus, bitter, some floral hop flavor, definitely caramel. Finish is clean, alcohol doesnt over power.
