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.

Idiosynkrasie (3700) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2013
650ml bottle. Cloudy copperish golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Intense, sweaty resinous hop aroma, hints of grapefruit and pine, robust caramal malty background. Taste is moderately bitter hoppy, intensely resinous, some pine, grapefruit, caramel malty basis absorbs some of the hop bitterness. Solid, though not overwhelming Double IPA.

22 oz bottle shared by drsordr. Pours a clear honey amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has resin and citrus hops, perhaps some catty notes, caramel malt; pretty nice overall. The flavor has everything in the nose with toasted malt and a touch of the alcohol. Decent bitterness to the finish.
