“The beer that bites back!” Bastard Kat IPA is an American IPA, brewed in the style of West Coast IPAs. The light golden ale is topped with a thick white head. Generous doses of hops throughout the brewing process, including the hop back and dry hopping, give Bastard Kat a crisp, citrusy, hop aroma. Hop bitterness and flavor are both pronounced, making Bastard Kat a natural for hop-heads. The finish is dry and crisp, leaving you ready for another sip.

Draft - Fruity and lots of sweet mandarin. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light fruit and resinouse, but very light. Too light and underwhelming.

At the brewery. Pours straw yellow. Good head that mellows, good lacing. Smells of citrus, mango and some pine. Creamy texture. Taste is tamer for an IPA. Mellow citrus , some hop bitterness, bit if pine. Nice easier drinking ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CampesinoTino (757) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2014
16 oz Can. Classic IPA hazy golden orange pour with an inch of whipped foam. Mostly floral hops, candied citrus and tropical fruit in the nose. The flavor offers up a good-sized dose of orange rind, lemon and hops resin followed by some pine, honey and toasted grain. Medium-bodied mouthfeel with strong carbonation and clean, bitter finish. Another quality PNW style IPA with a nice hops bite to it.

Shared @ Brewfellas/Cyprus with jimmythespoon. Very nice clear color, amazing hoppy aromas. At the beginning you get the piney taste but the aftertaste belongs to the malt and caramel. Very fresh and super crispy. Very nice IPA

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2013
Draught at the taproom
Amber color, with creamy head. Good hoppy aroma, with a fruity and earthy character (some manure). Lean mouthfeel, the malt flavor is mild, the hopping is necessarily better, with resins, and a quite strong manure character again, very light fruity touch.
Pleasant, fresh, earthy.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2013 Sampled on tap at Kulshan tasting room, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of pure citrus hops and light biscuit malts to back. Flavour of citrus hops, bitter resinous hops and grainy malt to back. Very solid and refreshingly bitter.
