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.
