Retribution Imperial IPA (High Water Brewing)

9.5% ABV
Purchased at Taylor’s Market ($6.99/22 oz. bottle) and poured into tulip glasses.

His Notes:

Retribution pours a brackish orange with a creamy white head and a fruit salad of aromas on the nose, including peaches, bananas, strawberries, and guavas.  Peaches are also present on the palette along with freshly mowed grass, giving the beer a cleaner and less resin-y finish than most Imperial India Pale Ales.  The flavor profile is more focused on fruit and butterscotch malt than pine and hay, with even a little toffee and brown nuts emerging on the periphery.  It’s more clean and refreshing than most brews of its’ type, and it should pair better with food than more hop-tastic IPA beers like Sculpin or Torpedo.
