Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This collaboration beer between Surly and Three Floyds can best be described as an Imperial Brett IPA fermented with the unique strain of yeast Brettanomyces Lambicus. This yeast creates earthy barnyard notes along with pineapple-cherry pie aromas and flavors. Of course with the "IPA" style it's hopped heavily. Simcoe and Chinook are the culprits for the "Cat peed on the Christmas tree" aroma.

S - Tropical nose dominated by mangoes with a bit of lemon

T - Mangoes, lemon, light pine near the end. Light Orval-like brett and funk on the backend.

M - Medium body with light carbonation. Dry, funky aftertaste

O - Solid double IPA with lots of mango flavor and a good brett presence. Definitely good fresh

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 6/20/13.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Big white head. Lasts quite a while. Thick collar.

Smell - Stone fruits like peach. Brett, but not an earthy brett. Fruitier. Citrusy, but not too simcoe-y.

Taste - Bright citrus here. Orange and then turns more grapefruity. Peachy. Grainy brett flavor. Not overly strong yet. A lot of pale malt as the hops and brett die down.

Mouthfeel - Easy to drink, if a bit sweet. Medium carbonation.

Overall - It's tasty. Be interesting to see how this develops.

This poured with a mass of bubbly carbonation that fomented in to a relatively pretty crown. The color was bright, light and golden.

Very tart in the nose there's several sour and tangy aromas. I catch strong tropical fruit along with raspberry, lemon an honey.

The taste makes a mad dash through the palate with a tartness down the center. There's a lot of tropical fruit flavor but it's minerally. It reminds me of the old Flinstones vitamins I took as a kid. The aftertaste has a piney hop flavor.

The feel is very light and crisp but almost too light, almost watery.

I know this is an IPA but it has all the components of a better than average sour.

One of the most disappointing beers I've had from 3f. Definitely an appropriate name. However Cat Piss would've been more appropriate. I wouldn't say it's horrible but it definitely is not worth the $15 per bottle. There are waaay better seasonal s out there now

Pours light orange, bright white head, finger, fluffy, lacy. Aroma was mostly all Brett, funky, wet hay, musky. Some floral hops, but the Brett was up front for sure. Tasted wasn't nearly as much Brett, But lacked some complexity. Fairly bitter, floral and piny hops with some jaunts of musk and hay. Body was oily, slick, somewhat bubbly and crisp, not too heavy though, which was good.

Overall, interesting for sure. I enjoyed the Brett in the aroma, but it didn't connect as well in the taste...still a quite good beer. The price tag is a bit unfortunate for what you get though, truth be told.
