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.

caesar (5595) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2013
Bottled. Clear amber color, medium frothy off-white head. Aroma of biscuity malts together with piney hops, some grapefruit. Big bitterness, piney again. Quite typical american DIPA, pretty straightforward. Quite dry in taste, big bold bitterness and a typical malt base. Lacks a bit complexity though.

Wow I really enjoyed this beer, a really true Imperial IPA, lots of fruity notes on the nose, very malty sweetness supported with a lot of bitterering hops which creates a veryt very well balanced beer. EXCELLENT.

MacBoost (1452) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle from Beers of the World, Rochester, NY. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. This beer may have the strongest pure mango note I’ve ever smelled. Its pretty amazing in the nose. Taste is a combination of tropical fruit and abrasive bitterness. Finishes long and bitter with a lingering hop spiciness. Really fucken good. Yes!

Defreni (2771) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2013
Flaske: Orange klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Hård duft af amerikansk humle, en smule kattetis, men ellers mest citrus. Mundfylden er markant præget af en aggressiv bitterhumling. Fin øl men skulle nok have været lidt friskere.

tiong (4504) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2013
650ml bottle from Høkeren

Pours clear dark orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of resiny hops, pine, grass and caramely malts. Taste is malty, caramely and resiny with some resiny hops, pine and grass. Finish is sweetish and malty with loads of hops and resiny notes. Alcohol burns through a bit. Okay, quite malty and heavy DIPA.

lusikka (6874) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2013
650 ml bottle.
Pours a copper colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of caramel malts, strong gooseberry bush and grass. Flavour of juicy, burning bitter floral hops, caramel, strong resin and some alcohol. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a very long, warming, lingering bitter and resiny finish. Hardcore.

Pours clear golden-copper color with a small head. Aroma of citrusy hops, some floral notes, mandarin, orange peel and some resin. Flavor of resiny hops, caramel malts, orange, pine needles, some wood and hints of syrup. Harsh bitter and somewhat slick palate with a lingering caramelly finish, some alcohol burn at the end also. A Big Beer.
