Picked up a bottle in Madrid. Actually the label says "cat piss". Made me want to try it. Poured into a wine glass. Nice hazy orange hue and decent lacing. Smell is malty with mild pine it not spectacular. I have smelled cat piss before and this is lacking the same aroma. Taste is like sour pear with some malt backbone and hops. Not overly aggressive as the name would suggest. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and actually pretty good. Overall above average for European IZpA but still not quite what I was hoping for.

Bottle from recent Chicago trip, Westlake Liquors. Pours, even for me, monstrous amount of foam. Bottle was a foamer. Neutralized aroma through the perfumed Sauvign hops, let's call it a neutral aroma. Tingling yet creamy mouthfeel of hops and malt. Not bad to drink, bit took some getting used to. Would not want it every night.

The appearance of this beer is actually kind of ugly. Super hazy brownish yellow, with funky sediment.

The smell is pleasing though. Some piney hop comes out as well as a bit of grape and a tiny bit of honey.

I'm going to try to be objective here, because I am not an IPA fan. So for those who enjoy hops there is a decent hop character here, but mellower than your extreme hopped IPAs. Within this I find some bitter citrus, some light fruity sweetness like grapes or pineapple, and a bitter finish. Not so bad aside from the finish, but among IPAs this is pleasing, so I'll be careful not to slam the rating.

Hmmm, feels like hop sediment and soda water on its way to being flat.

Served from bottle into a Mikkeller stemmed tulip. Poured yellow-orange with a four finger off-white head that subsided two fingers extremely slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, earth, fruit, litter box, and earth hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, earth, earth hop, and spicy hop. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. The aroma on this one was really quite nice. I found it kind of comical that I found litter box in the nose based on the name of this brew, but it definitely worked with the balance of things going on here. The flavor was a little more spicey and citrus forward which was nice, but not awe-inspiring. Good easy drinker. Worth trying if you get the chance.

Pours a hazy dark orange/carmel amber with a big fluffy and long sustained pure white head.

Nose is full of sweet fruity and banana esters, asertive but not overwhelming. Pleasant.

Mouthfeel is medium/thin with a sparkle champagne like carbonation; still while a bit thin in body, a huge flavor profile overpowers any lack of body.

Flavors are big burnt toast; pine and grapefruit skin. Lots of bitter hop character that would be very nice were it a bit more bright in charachter.

Almost a "dull" bitter profile. Big pine finish.

I would not go out of my way for this or have a need to try again. Great name but perhaps to close to home?? Maybe the joke's on them?

Bottle labelled "Cat Piss" not "Katz Pis"

A - Medium orange. Cloudy. Thin layer of off-white head.

S- Earthy and floral hops. Some herbal aromas present as well. Not much evident from the malt bill.

T - Earthy, floral and herbal hop flavours dominate the palate along with a moderate bitterness. A slight malt sweetness is evident in the background.

M- Light to medium body. Moderate carbonaiton.

Poured from the bottle first into a tulip glass, then a nonic pint glass. More explanation to follow.

An absolutely giant ridiculous foaming head of off tan light caramel. Stupid clumpy and chunky stick. When opening there was a strange pop/gush sound. Fairly uniform but just ridiculous and outrageous. Body color sits with a dull murky brown, some hints of amber orange but very cloudy and muddy. Pouring into a pint glass doesn't help, with a small pour taking over 90% of the glass with suds. This beer looks ridiculous and stupid.

Nose is interesting. Chewy and dense sense, but with a hop profile that I can say I have never recognized before. After some time it becomes very earthy, dirty, and even a hint of manure. Some hints of pine and citrus, but mostly earth. Really hard to describe this nose.

Taste is extremely bitter at first but gets better. Bitterness is strange that it hits the front of the palate with big lime astringency and chemical feel, and stings my tongue with a tiny tonic water tight carbonated sense reminiscent of hydrogen peroxide. Little bit of pine, but matching the earthy dirt and manure sense on the nose. Earthiness gets bigger as the beer warms up. Feel also brings stinging pine needles and chemical medicinal sense.

This is one really strange beer, I don't mind it but it's really odd.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a cloudy medium orange with a massive coarse white head that slowly faded leaving foamy lacing. Aroma of piney hops, pinapple, lemon; intense. Yikes. Flavor is moderately bitter hops and dry malt melding into an unpleasant solvent and bitter middle, finishing very dry and bitter, bitter. Medium bodied. This is not pleasant. The malt is simply not supporting the intense hops. An apparently intentionally unpleasant beer. Can't finish the bottle. I feel that I was warned ahead of time with the name, but the ingredient in the name might have cut the unpleasant solvent flavor and improved the beer. I guess this deserves some credit for accurate advertising.

A: The beer is cloudy brownish yellow in color and poured with a two finger high off white head that has excellent retention properties and hardly died down and always left a short head covering surface.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of gooseberries and earthiness in the nose.
T: The taste shares similarities with the smell and has some notes that somewhat resembles ammonia, which I assume was the inspiration for its name.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer definitely has a unique aroma and flavor profile. It definitely takes some getting used to.

Poured from 12oz bottle into new glarus pint glass. They may call it Kat Piss because it's very hazy, unclear but leaves a frothy head that sticks to the glass. Good retention.

The aroma is tooaweet and bready and malty for an IPA for not only American but even an English version. I think they used all Contintental style hops in this beer that gives it a pilsner like aroma. Feels like a helles or pilsner.

Taste is about the same. It's more like an English cask style beer in flavor. Very mellow, non overbearing hops and Laughton sweet and malty. Alot of pilsner overtones.

Mouthfeel is ok, just a bit flat and slightly syrupy.

I was hoping for alot more but I think it's a questions of the target market for this beer and I don't think American craft set palates will take to it quit well if they want an over sexes west coast hops style IPA. I paid $7 for this beer too. Wrong hops. Doesnt balance the malt. Not worth it.

Golden yellow, only thin ring of head to begin with, some sticky lacing. Grassy scent, some muddy earthiness and medicinal alcohol notes. Taste again is grassy with a faint herbal note, some lemon and a bit of earthiness like muddy stale water. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Expected pungency from the hops in a beer of this name really never comes through in scent or taste. Moderate in bitterness and some unfriendly scent and taste notes. Stale tasting.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a cloudy dark golden yellow with some hints of brown in color with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy light beige head that very slowly reduces to very thick film evenly covering the entire surface of the beer. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: There are strong aromas of grassy, medicinal, and earthy hops which is slightly off-putting. The aroma is very sharp. astringent and light amounts of grainy malts.

T: Upfront there is a slightly unpleasant and off-putting grainy malts with some earthy mushroom flavor to it. On top of that, there is a strong flavor of grassy, medicinal, and earthy malts which contribute significant amounts of bitterness which linger way too long.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. There is a moderate to significant amount of dryness in the middle of the body and sharply astringent towards the finish.

O: Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your perspective) this beer tastes exactly like I imagine cat piss would really taste based on the ammonia component of the smell. The appearance and the smell are OK but the taste of this beer is slightly off-putting - not sure I would want to have another of these.

Explodes out of bottle with a five+ finger off-white head that fades very slowly to a lump leaving chunks of lace. Hazy light amber color with some yeast left in bottle. Pine hops nose. Fierce carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor has some caramel with pine hops. Decent IPA. Pricey at $7.70 for a 330ml bottle from Tully's Beer & Wine Wells, Me. Best before 2013. Labelled as Katz Pis.

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

A: The beer pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head.

S: Smells like urine and bleach. There's a lot of straw and grass with a bit of funk, feet, and mushrooms. A very light citrus note along with a touch of bread and sweetness.

T: Woah, this is jut not good. Lots of earthy mushrooms, not really what I was looking for. It's...catty and wild, sort of like a new world Sauvignon Blanc. There's a bit of wood, straw, and grass too.

M: The body is medium with a medium carbonation.

O: This was just bad. Wouldn't care to have this again.
