Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MasterSki on 07-12-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Todd brewed his own batch of Urine Trouble back here in Minnesota, which he calls an Imperial Brett IPA. He says the brettanomyces yeast creates “earthy barnyard notes along with pineapple-cherry pie aromas and flavors.” Simcoe and Chinook hops give it what he describes as a “cat peed on the Christmas tree” aroma.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Snifter at the tap room.

White head with a lot of lace left. Color is a clear gold.

Aroma: very funky. A lot of Brett. Barnyard. Lots of pine.

Taste: a lot of hops. Big pine flavor. Some fruit flavors. Pineapple. Still a decent amount of Brett and funk. Barnyard and hops.

Mouthfeel: really bitter and sticky. Hop resiny. Ends extremely sticky.

Overall, if this wasn't so stick, I'd probably like it more. It's very bitter. I'd only drink one glass.

On tap at Surly's taproom. 10 oz. serving in a Surly Darkness chalice.

Appearance: Color is a clear golden orange. Moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of lacing clinging around the glass.

Smell: A very hop forward aroma with fruit esters and some funky Brett hints. Big scent of ripe hops upfront with hints of citrus grapefruit, orange peel, mango, apricot, pineapple, and tangerine. Big presence of dank pine resin. Earthy hop hints of grass as well. Brett funk comes through with some subtle sour hints of cherry and spice. Pale malt background with some hints of biscuit, grains, and yeast. Very forward with the hops. Pretty good aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma hints at, a big taste of bitter hops with lots of citrus, pine, and Brett funk. Lots of ripe and bitter hops upfront with citrus fruit notes of orange, grapefruit, apricot, mango, pineapple, and tangerine. Big herbal hop taste of dank pine resin and earthy notes of grass. The Brett is kind of subtle but noticeable with notes of funk and sour cherry. Decent backing of bready pale malt with notes of biscuit, yeast, and grains. Very hop forward and oily. Pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, oily, and pretty bitter. Finishes very dry. Alcohol heat is hidden well.

Overall: A very good twist on a Imperial IPA. The hops stand out the most with a big taste of citrus fruit and pine while the Brett adds an interesting kick.
