Punk Ass Cat by Door County Brewing Co. was judged as an American IPA (BJCP Category 21A). This beer was a pleasant balance of malt and lingering bitterness. The upfront citrus and melon hops blended nicely with a faint crackery malt behind. No noticeable esters were found. It was quite hazy but had a lovely golden hue and a white frothy head that lasted forever. The flavor was smooth, malty and crackery with citrus and floral hop flavors, which ended bitter yet malty with light pear and cherry esters. This medium-bodied, lightly warming beer was quite smooth and very easy-drinking. The perfect blend of malt and hops. The perfect beer for drinking while grilling steaks on the deck.
