Bottled. Pours hazy, amber and with a huge off-white head. Fair lacings. Nose of citrus, grape fruit and of course notes like cats piss. Medium sweet flavour with citrus, grass and fruity notes. Medium bodied. Average carbonation. Creamy textuere. Nice bitter finish. Rather crisp and definitely interesting.

Also bottled as Cats Piss.

Pours a hazy dark amber with a VERY thick pale honey-tan head. Be careful, this can fizz like nobody's business! Hoppy aroma is sharp and has a fruity undertone. Flavor is fairly hoppy and a little fruity with a bit of a metallic tang and just a little bitterness. Edgy, tingly, firm-bodied texture leaves a hoppy, fruity and slightly sweet finish. Cat p*ss indeed!

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a brownish-yellow color and a cloudy/murky consistency (much muddier than the typical IPA). There was a huge, creamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A sharp aroma of citrus, hops, malt and some grain.

T: Tasted of hops (a pretty big dose of them considering this is a regular IPA), malt, a biscuity quality, and a slightly grainy finish. Essentially not a run-of-the-mill IPA flavor, but still pretty satisfying.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a prickly, lively finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A slightly unusual beer, but drinkable and worth a shot.

A: a huge fills most of a duvel tulip head that is off white in color almost tan. The body is cloudy brown and not pale at all. Head is very slow to fall and does leave large amounts of lacing.
S: the strangest hop nose, not exactly pine, nor grapefruit or even grass, the beers name, as bad as it sounds actually describes the smell rather well.
T: not overly sweet as I was expecting for some reason. Same hop profile as the aroma, add a touch of yeast spice, and a light amount of malt sweetness
M: very smooth, clean on the palate, the only thing that lingers is the gritty hop flavor.
O: where can I find a sixer of this, as odd as it is, it is a good, yet different IPA.

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.

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.

thanks to tenderbranson69 for sharing this, enjoyed chilled in a tulip

The color is dark golden with very hazed look and half the glass was foam...even when poured slowly. The lace clings in thick rings. The smell is good very floral and tropical aroma w/ lots of yeast esters bringing the fruitiness level out. The feel is mostly dry with semi-dry finish and mild alcohol with medium body and moderately bitter.

The flavor starts out piney with a gentle citrus aspect... the tropical fruit and melon seems to come forward more as it warms with a light caramel tinge and mild grainy flavor from the malt more toward the finish. Overall this is a good IPA, definitely better than average but it is not really the best choice for the price I am guessing

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.

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.

Pale amber, slightly cloudy with a huge off-white head that steadily shrinks to a thin, rocky, foamy top and some decent lace.

Aroma is nice juicy-yeasty character with pine sap, wood, leafy vague citrus. It has fairly subtle complexity and a firm, pleasant slightly medicinal hint. The “cat pee” hint is not evident at first but rears its head eventually and only lightly.

Taste is medicinal peppery quality up front with caramelized sugar, yeasty juiciness, some light toastiness, then candied bitter burnt orange peel, spicy pepper bitterness taking over at finish strongly. It is good, if somewhat astringent and a touch too bitter. The feel is thin but not watery.

First off this beer is by far and away biggest gusher i have ever had. Just exploded out of the bottle with easily losing 6oz. The remaining beer is full of floaties in a muddled chestnut brown with a creamy eggshell finger of foam, looks like an ugly quad almost. The nose really is redolent of pepe du chat, gooseberry, bright herbal citrus with a nice minerality with a touch of dry malt - very sauvignon blancesque. The taste is of medium roasted malts, light citrus and a pleasant dry hoppy bitterness. The beer feels a bit flat (probably lost all its carb when it expolded) and a touch watery. Definitely not worth $9.99 but not too bad of a beer.
