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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: light gold hue with a hazy body and some tiny floaties in the mix. Head poured a gargantuan 3+ fingers of pillowy ivory foam. Not bad.

Smell: bready/biscuity/yeasty malt base with a funky hop mixed in. This particular mix doesn't really work for me.

Taste: biscuity and bready with a little bit of citrusy hop. Actually not too bad. Bitterness is moderate and the citrusy flavor works well.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: I like this beer, but the smell really gets to me. It's not nasty or anything like that, it just seems ... unlikeable to me. Far too yeasty/bready. I wouldn't seek this beer out again.

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.

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.

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.

Lucky to try this obscure, but not great brew. Poured with a proud foamy, frothy, fluffy, sudsy, cream colored head that lasts forever and lotsa lace. Color is a hazy/cloudy medium ambrer. Aroma yeast, bacteria, malt, caramel. Flavor has the bacteria/mineral/chem in the fore with the nicer qualities right behind. If I had a bit more of a buzz on this woulda got a better rating. Body and carbonation were good. Finish is like flav again with the off characters standing out. Still - a good effort.

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!

At work we open the case of this stuff pull a bottle out and low and behold it says Cat Piss on it with the ingredients in Danish! No Katz here just a euro Cat who has a freshly emptied bladder.

A- pours a murky almost brown deep amber with a MASSIVE three fingers of billowy off white head that just won't quit. Sticky lacing covers the sides of my tulip.

S- stings the nostrils a bit as I take a wiff. Woody pine sap, berry passionfruit and lemon zest hop aromas wiggle their way into you sense of smell. Dry biscuity malt with the lightest touch of caramel. Slightly yeasty with a leafy green hop finish.

T- Toasted bready malt with a hint of caramel hits the palate initially. Crunchy big hop bitterness demolishes any sweetness inthe middle leaving a hop flavors of pine sap, lemon zest and sweet herbs. Finishes bone dry with a yeasty characteristic.

MF- very active tingly mouthfeel with highly frenetic carbonation and a light body.

D- very bitter IPA cuts down on the drinkability. Average at best.

Overall an OK IPA
