On tap at Bar Hop. Hazy gold pour, thin white head, medium carbonation. People mentioned pee in the aroma. Its definitely there, especially as it warms. Hoppy citrus and to a lesser extent pine and melon. This is lighter than most hop forward IPAs Iíve had lately, nice balanced complexity, bitter and smooth. ABV well hidden. Very good, minus the cat pee smell.

Bottle from the brewery. Bright golden body with a faint haze and a pearly white head that starts large, recedes a bit, but never completely disappears and leaves some great lacing. Aroma is chock full of hops - cat pee, tangerine rind, cut grass, bit of pine. Flavour is similarly hop forward - seriously fruity, with tangerine and passionfruit, bit of pine and citrus rind, and yeah, some catty notes. Orange rind/pith really comes through in the finish. One of the best hops-heavy beers Iíve had in a long while!

[Bottle (500ml).] Pours a bubbly pale gold with a large lasting frothy off-white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is big-time cat piss, in a good way, along with some grassy & resiny notes, some fruit and backed by malt. Really tasty flavour of said catty hops, also resiny and grassy, along with some fruit and a nice bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied. Quite flavourful, an enjoyable IPA.

tom10101 (2909) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle (500 ml). From Sammy, thanks! Clear bright golden/orange with a small/medium slowly diminishing white head and good lacing. Aroma of dank hops, pine, onion notes, fruity notes and malt. Taste is slightly/moderately sweet with dank hops, pine, light fruits, good malt backbone and light alcohol presence. Medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel and somewhat dry finish. Good IPA, but maybe a tad too much dank hops. Not my favorite from Bellwoods.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The nose matches the name - lots of cat pee and gooseberry along with some peachy fruit character. A little bit of clean bitterness and tropical fruit. Really lovely brew.

Spab (2452) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
500 ml bottle from brewery retail store. Pours a lightly cloudy golden colour with average-sized white head. Aroma is indeed catty with resinous, spicy, slightly grassy hops as well as some tropical fruit. Flavour also has quite pungent hoppiness with notes of pine resin, pepper and grass as well as some gentle tangerine/mango. Solid bitterness in finish. Carbonation on the subtle side. Quite pleasant.

sudomorph (641) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 500ml bottle bottled on Nov 5, 2013. Drank Nov 7, 2013. Pours a clear, slightly dark yellow/orange with a two finger, nearly white head that coats the glass with lacing. Aroma is pungent with some floral/earthy/grass notes mixed with pine, lemon citrus, and a touch of tropical fruits.Taste is bitter. Notes of pine with an earthy, herbal, slightly peppery spiced taste at the end. Medium body and carbonation. Smooth, drinkable, texture that is fairly refreshing.Overall I like it. More herbal than most of their other beers but good in its own right. A fine addition to the line up. I hope they donít just make this when they run out of Citra. Cheers!

Ferris (4472) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
Draft - Surprise, itís cat pee and grass. Clear gold with a thin head. Lemon zest, grass and leafy hops. Bitterness comes in during the finish, but subdued. Pleasant and bright.

neongolden (441) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
(500ml from bottle shop, 2 days old) Pours clear pale orange, small white head, no lace. Aroma very pungent and a little dank/catty with orange zest, peach/pit fruit, bit of mango, resiny. Flavour of oranges, a melange of other fruit, resinous - some sweetness in the malt but just enough to support those dank fruity hops. Nice pungency to the middle of the palate, finishes dry, with a decent helping of resiny, slightly peppery bitterness that clings to the tongue. Body medium but silky smooth with fairly low carb. Very flavourful but extremely drinkable IPA, love the Summit/Simcoe combo here. Prefer this to Roman Candle, nice backup plan!

Sammy (8719) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2013
Orange flavour and orange citrus hop aroma.Despite comments that there was no citra, and despite the name which invokes thoughts of citra, there seemed to be some citra. It is difficult to get at hops. Smooth mouthfeel for an IPA, lacy orange body.Very good drinkability. From the bottle store.
