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.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 10, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 Majdnem bíborvörös, vékony habú sör. Illata aszalt gyümölcsös, karamelles, kurkuma, borókás, gyantás. Íze aszalt gyümis, brutál komlós, igen száraz. Nehéz,olajos és moderáltan szénsavas. Utóíze keserű, igen száraz és gyümölcsös. Nagyon jó!
