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 the Nelson Sauvin hops imported from New Zealand. These hops have an intense citrus, berry like aroma and flavor not found in any other variety. Deadlift's simple but fully braced malt backbone muscles up enough malty sweetness and caramel character to spot the incredibly robust hop aroma and flavor. The result will surely be a welcome workout for your taste buds.

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 8

    Sampled on 4/20/2010. This Imperial IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is floral and sweet, a touch wine fruity and malty. A medium to lighter bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are Nelson Sauvin, I still can’t figure out any good descriptors to use for this hop, but I sure can recognize it when I taste it. It has the kind of floral wine grape fruitiness to it yet it has that big hop bite. Nice carbonation. Seems a little watery and thin for an Imperial IPA, but I think it was brewed that way. There are some nice grapefruity hop bitterness that starts out very mild and grows as you keep drinking. Interesting… Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
