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.

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 (501) - 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.

0,65 l bomber, Sörspecialista, thanks Ogreface!
Poured deep amber with a small but nice creamy off white head. Aroma of raisins, some liquerice, resin and some spicies, curcuma, black tea with honey. Oily bodied dipa with flavor of tea again, resin, some grape and honey. Fine hoppy aftertaste. Yumm!
