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.

4.1/5  rDev +4.6%

Poured from a 22oz bottle dated 6/25/13 into a FFF tulip glass
A: A slightly hazy orange color with a fair amount of carbonation, contributing to a two-finger head that quickly settles to a thick lacing
S: Layered & complex with grapefruit hops initially followed by a big dose of brett, then a hint of pine and full caramel malt finish it off
T: I like this. It is reminiscent of the other FFF DIPAs but with brett that adds a nice sourness/complexity. Starts off with sour grapefruit then again a funky bretty midpalate ending with a sour apple finish. Lacks the malt backbone I typically find with their other pale ales, though
M: Medium-bodied, sour, crisp
O: Good not great, I like it a bit more than the average score here

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

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.
