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

Brewed with our friends at Surly, this Imperial Brett IPA is fermented with a unique strain of yeast, Brettanomyces Lambicus. This yeast creates earthy barnyard notes along with pineapple and cherry pie aromas. Of course, it’s hopped heavily. Simcoe and Chinook are the culprits for the “cat peed on the Christmas tree” aroma.

Phenomenal.
More Brett than IPA but an overall joy.
Appearance is a rich yellow-gold, a tad cloudy and moderate head.
Smell is diverse - rich with fruit but also teeming with musty yeast.
Taste is extraordinary. It's all at once sweet, hoppy, flavorful. A bit of fruit but not dominating.
Overall, incredibly well done brew from two legends. I hesitated because the last couple 3F one-offs were heavy on acetone and priced at $15, as is this one. But I'm now happy I've made multiple trips for bottles, as I suspected these two brewers wouldn't disappoint.
Suspicions confirmed.

750 bottle poured into FFF Teku

A - Pours a medium golden body with a slight amber hue. Three finger off white head

S - This smells great. The Pineapple pops out at first, then the tropical fruit adds with a slight funk to finish. The piney hop character pairs well with the tropical fruit. No urine here

T - Follows the nose with the pineapple and fruit notes popping out. The slight funk is involved, but playing a back seat. Really great flavors going on.

M - Moderate carbonation but coats well.

O - I was blown away by this beer. The combination of the flavors works so well. I'm not sure if there is a difference due to bottle conditioning, but this in no way resembled a cat peeing on a pine tree. Happy to have another one to enjoy and would drink this all the time.

A - Smooth as velvet pour. Burnt orange color. 1.5 fingers of bright white, fluffy head that sticks around.

S - Brett is out front. Funky barnyard smell along with some sweet undertones. Then the hops come through. Pine, citrus. First time I've smelled these two scents in the same glass. Bravo!

T - Who'd a thought? Funky Brett and high alpha hops living in harmony. It's all there, and done oh so well. Not much malt in the profile. That's to be expected.

M - Smooth, creamy, velvety. Like buttah

O - A one off marvel. Two of the most respected breweries in the country collaborate, and good things happen. Make it a regular occurence, Nick and Omar.
