COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Retribütion Imperial IPA is brewed for the true connoisseur of all things hoppy. We brew this beer with one theme, go big... or go home... Layers of bittering finishing and aroma hops all combine to result in a truly unique beer.

Formerly brewed at Drakes. Brewing transferred to Hermitage in 2013.

Overly sweet malty and oily DIPA. The malts are far too forward and the hops dont seem fresh or inviting. Stale metallic and hugely malty.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty hoppy piney aroma. Fruity malty hoppy bitter grapefruit flavor. Has a fruity malty hoppy bitter grapefruit finish. The alcohol is well hidden. Can’t taste it, just feel it. Great stuff.

I really hate big malty ipas. This is sweet boozy and pennies, I hate these as much as wheat wines

Lovely citrus nose. Rich malt flavor, honey, plum, citrus hops, bittersweet finish. Quite smooth and enjoyable, a very solid Californian xIPA.

Tsekouratos (287) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - OCT 22, 2013
650 bottle at The Local Pub, Athens. Poured a nice coppery something with a white head, lasting and leaving a nice ring. The aroma was full of caramel notes and all the nice floral things you can find in a meadow or a garden!! Citrus, pineapple, pine and so on!!! Taste was the same but even better, with maybe tangerine backing up!! The body was medium to full with a nice carnonation! An excellent beer!!

Clear deep amber beer, good size pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth. Mild minerally carbonation, semi dry. A little malt sweetness. Rich tangerine, turns marmalade. Touches of pine and grass. Alcohol dryness and spice. Decent if marred by obvious alcohol.

Torrefacto (576) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2013
Color ámbar con espuma color crema de burbuja pequeña. Aromas de pino y hierbas con ligera presencia de alcohol. En boca tiene una densidad media-alta con un inicio dulce ligeramente tostado que equilibra muy bien el amargor final intenso, resinoso y duradero hasta el regusto. Muy rica.
