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.

Pours a perfect amber and straw with a great frothy head. Aroma is super fresh hops. Flavor is burning tart and bitter, no good sweet balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Botella de 65 cl en el lúpulo en enero de 2014. Sabores dulces afrutados con un cuerpo medio a intenso de 9.5 vol algo pastoso y denso. Para repetir sin duda.

22oz bottle - Maximum hops, maximum flavor, great beer. I’ve been waiting to try Steve’s new creations via High Water, and this was well worth waiting for. Aroma might be the weak link in this great beer, but that’s a stretch. The aroma starts out with a strong piney punch, resiny, juicy, fruity but restrained. Flavor has an enormous, hop blast like chewing on a fresh hop cone, lots of green hop flavor. The malts are there, and it’s definitely a balanced DIPA for sure. Nothing overly bracing about this DIPA, just a hop-showcase and something really smooth and satisfying about this beer. No noticeable alcohol presence, thanks in part to the malt bill.

"lots of orange and citrus in the aroma and flavor made this one stand out a bit. actually pretty well balanced but copious amounts of hops were evident. very nice beer."

Külső jellegzetességei remek alapul szolgálnak egy morcosabb IPA képének kialakításához, sokat ígérő, rézvörös színe és lepelszerű habja megbízható előjelei egy kellemes sörözésnek. Gyantás árnyalatok telepszenek az italra, melyekbe illatolva igazán komplex, mély és tartalmas aromákban lehet részünk, amik leginkább a fenyőfás, akácos, virágos vonulat felé mutatnak egy kevés barnacukros, karamelles, grillázs-hangulattal, gyümölcsös jegyek azonban kevéssé fedezhetők fel bennük. Súlyos és szigorú illatok ezek, feszes keretbe ágyazzák az előreláthatóan szintén fajsúlyos tartalmat. Telt és karakteres íze meglepetésektől mentes, komor komlófolyam, amely komótosan hömpölyög, annál intenzívebb benyomást keltve azonban útja során. Karcos, hosszan elhúzódó tobozos utóízét ritkás szénsvatartalomba ágyazott faháncsos, közepes cukortartalmú, gömbölyűen és szétterjedően gyantás alapíz előzi meg az alkohol kísértetszerű jelenléte mellett. Remek sör, minden bizonnyal egyetlen amerikai-IPA rajongó számára sem okoz csalódást.

Bottle, 22oz. It’s an unclear, dark golden to amber colored beer topped by a dense, finger-thick light beige head. The aroma is quite malty, with a nice hoppy touch in the back. Pine cones, resins and some oranges, with a faint cheesy touch. The flavor is really bitter, with resins, pine cones and orange peel. Full body, some alcohol warmth and a nice carbonation level. Lasting bitter finish. Nice indeed, although a tad sweet. Guess it’s influenced by age too. 140717

Bottle share at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell. Bottle picked up from Cotteridge wines. Bright orange coloured pour with a thin white loose head. Aroma is caramel malt, metal and pine needles. Flavour is old hops, light metal and sweetish loose caramel malts. Why do americans add caramel malt to IPAs? Palate is nice sticky resin, semi sweet and medium body. Finish is rough and metalic. Maybe not the freshest of bottles.
