tap at hopcat. i believe this is the same beer as their "belgian plum ipa" from a year ago. but i am not sure. aroma of over-ripe fruit and hops. flavor is extremely soapy, with bitter biting hops leading to an overly dry finish. not enjoyable
Earlier Rating: 4/25/2010 Total Score: 2.7
Old notes. On tap at hopcat. Shorts party. Aroma of detergent, cleaner, soap and piney hops. Spicy as hell. Flavor is too much of this as well and is extremely difficult to enjoy. A biting ipa whose characteristics remind me of tile wash. Blech

Pours medium dark brown with a thin cream head. Nose is sweet fruits and lite chocolate with nice pine hops as well. Flavor is the same with mild bitterness in the finish.
