3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from Bierkompass
The beer in the glass is orange-brown, with fine, creamy high head. It smells very hoppy and fruity, slightly citrus-like and spicy. Starts with strong and spicy aroma hops, with a lot of citrus and berry fruit. The middle part is still very hoppy and fruity, berry flavors come through, coupled with powerful hop aromas! Goes to a hoppy, fruity, bitter-dry finish! Well done!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle bought at Hopduvel in Gent. It almost exploded out of the bottle so I had to be quick to pour it. The result was a huge pale yellow head standing on hazy orange-golden ground. Nutty smell, some malts, a bit weird actually, it smells like peanuts. The peanut smell is in the taste as well. I’m not sure if this is an off flavour but it didn’t work for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Doesn’t smell much like cat piss to me (my girlfriend has a cat, I know). Citrusy nose with a hint of light malts. Pours a hazy, chunky yellow with a huge off-white head. Taste is a nice balance of citrusy hoppiness and malt. Nice bitterness in the finish. A nice, drinkable IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with white head. Nose/taste of dank resinous tree sap, funky hops, pine and caramel malt. Dry resin finish. Medium body.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid orange with a frothy head and copious clingy lace. Nose is big black peppery Nelson Sauvin hops, malt, tropical citrus fruit. Tastes hoppy, very bitter, with tons of astingent IBU-laden NS hops. Stays bitter and bone dry, with a solid malt bill, very hefty palate, and an acrid finish that is a tad harsh. Has a lot of that peaty scotch-barrel flavor that the one Brewdog beer had.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orange colour with a big white head. Smells very hoppy, almost overwhelming, fruity but a bit unfresh. Tastes aggressive, bitter and unfresh. Sticky mouthfeel, too much carbo, long nasty aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
@ Copenhagen festival 2011. The aroma has some malts, vegetables, grass, citrus. Hazy-cloudy, orange coloured beer with not much head. The taste is quite bitter, dry and astringent. Very hoppy.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Labeled as Katz Pis. Well the pour starts with a glass of beige foam that dissipates into a clear copper liquid. Lots of citrus and floral aroma coming out of the foam. Med body. Quite a bit of hop - and a lot of it’s bitter. Citrus, floral and somehow a lot of earthy barnyard - almost like brett dropped by. Oh, and there’s some soft caramel. I think. My mouth is doing a slow hop burn. How good is that!
