Notes/Commercial Description:
Bastard Kat IPA is an American IPA, brewed in the style of West Coast IPAs. The light golden ale is topped with a thick white head. Generous doses of hops throughout the brewing process, including the hop back and dry hopping, give Bastard Kat a crisp, citrusy, hop aroma. Hop bitterness and flavor are both pronounced, making Bastard Kat a natural for hop-heads. The finish is dry and crisp, leaving you ready for another sip.

A: more yellow than orange. Crystal clear. Small head.

S: mango.

T: mango and citrus. Mellow hop flavor and bitterness. Basic malt. A little on the sweet side.

M: medium carbonation. Medium, smooth body.

O: great IPA. Not over the top on hops. Balanced well. Just right. Needs a little more aroma.

Serving type: on-tap

Somewhat disappointing actually. I think its just not my preference, but it seems too bitter without enough flavor to back it up. I enjoy bitter IPAs, but this seems to be bitter for the sake of it.

Their other beers more than make up for it, so not a big deal, I still love Kulshan

on-tap at the brewery

Served in a shaker - bright orange body shines in the Bellingham sunlight. Aromatic hop profile - lots of bright citrus, tangerine, lemon zest, hop oil. Nice oily body with a clean finish. This one goes down easy and is always worth a shot.
