Pours gold and hazy.

There's a little bit of a cat pee aroma when it's first poured, but when I brought it up to my face there was no hop scent present. Strange.

Tastes like a nicely bizarre IPA: gross up front with bitter hops. Hops get lightly greener as it progresses. It all ties together quite well even though it goes outside stylistic parameters.
