Default Do hoppy beers make your pee stink?

Or is it just me?

I swear if I have a couple of DIPAs or something similar at night, my morning pee is atrocious. Not sure if it's something else that I ate earlier and just a coincident that it seems to coincide with my hoppy beer drinking.

Thought maybe someone could weigh in with an "Oh yeah, that's common knowledge, just like with asparagus." And possibly even enlighten me to the science of it.

I know B vitamins will make stinky urine, but I've never heard of hops doing the same.

been drinking lots of IPA recently, normally drink darker beers and have noticed a smell change. don't know why but i pay attention to the smell of my pee, several cups of coffee lends a certain smell, IPAs do too, but none are as bad as the asparagus.

Sour beers do the most to me. Never noticed with hops.

Beer in general lends a certain smell, but the style doesn't seem to matter (as long as it's a real beer with some yeasties left).

Next time check to see if it's just concentration. If you're drinking a couple of beers, and not re-hydrating, you could just be smelling the same pee. It's just stronger because there's less water for your kidneys to pull out of your system.

I'm pretty sure coffee-pee smells just like sugar smacks (tm)

I'm going with the dehydration. If you drink a few DIPAs and not a bunch of water with it, you'll have some concentrated, nasty smelling urine.

I swear hoppy beers change the smell of my flatulence, though...

I've had a couple IPA heavy drinking bouts where a distinctive floral/hoppy aroma wafted upwards, but stinky? No.....more like heavenly.
