BEER INFO

Brewed by:
3 Floyds Brewing Co.
Indiana, United States
3floyds.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

So I can't add a whole lot other folks haven't already said... pretty much everyone is spot on with their descriptions. But I can tell you that I just popped bottle #2 here in August of 2016, a good three years after I purchased it from 3 Floyds. The difference is startling... the sweetness has really come into full bloom over the last 1000 or so days... it balances out the sour really well. This beer has become a really bubbly delight. Sharp but effervescent on the tongue, extremely boozy. I wish I had 10 more bottles. If any of you are still sitting on one of these, it seems you won't be disappointed with your decision to wait.
