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.

Thanks for the share CraftPunk!

Whoever said this smells like cat piss doesn't know what cat piss smells like. Unless I've been feeding my cat the wrong stuff, because her urine is awful. Totally different from what I was told. The brett is perfectly overwhelming. Pineapples. Funky, yet palatable. Definitely worth a try, if you can get some.
