COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 itís hopped heavily. Simcoe and Chinook are the culprits for the "Cat peed on the Christmas tree" aroma.

Bottle... Pours cloudy and golden with a small, fleeting, fizzy, white head. The bouquet is super fruity Ė peach, mostly Ė and without nearly as much of the simcoe-induced, cat piss component I was expecting. Medium-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is remarkably well-balanced and fruity. Bittersweet, featuring light, acrid and acidic notes. Finishes crisp and moderately bitter with an accidental burp of peachiness following my final sip. Bottle courtesy of the ever-generous ctipping!

Orange-waxed bottle courtesy of a PUBíR operative. Pours turbid dark straw with fizzy off-white head. Nose was heavy resiny hops, some yeasty tartness, tropical fruit. The palate was complex and lively, with flavors of tangerine, pineapple, a big Simcoe hop bill, yeasty funk. My only beef was that it was a bit weird in the funkiness late, with the funky yeasty notes seeming to clash with the hops.

Bomber. Poured cloudy golden with an off-white head. The aroma picked up meaty pineapple and bready notes with catty and orangey hop accents.. some funky Brett too. The flavor found orange meat, honey, and bready malts with peppery notes, orange zest, and funky Brett around.. finished spicy with lots more Brett. Heavier-bodied with lots of carbonation.. spicy and warm.. nice one.
