Bomber poured into a snifter
A – hazy orange, pours with a 2 finger head,falls to about a 0.5-1 finger head retention. Minor amount of lacing on side of glass. After sitting for a bit, the head retention fades to a thin film.
S – Could smell the hops from a foot away while pouring it! Very floral and citrusy…reminds me of a less extreme Stone Enjoy By. Definitely get some orange citrus fruit smells coming off of it. I really like this smell…reminds me of a nice double IPA.
T – My first impression is that it is very tasty but a little disappointing. After recently finishing a case of zombie dust, the hops almost fall flat here. For any other brewery, this would be a really good drink. For a FFF bomber, I’m a tad disappointed. It tastes like a slightly cut back version of the aroma: piney and citrusy. It finishes off with a nice, sweet malt taste. Tastes almost spicy at first, then fades to the citrus-piney hops, then fades to the delicate amount of sweet malts (with the hops still lingering there in the background). There’s a decent amount of bitter aftertaste that lingers nicely. Every sip I've taken gets a little better. More sips yield a nice complexity that this beer possesses. The malt and hop profiles combine very nicely with this one.
M – It feels very smooth and almost slick. Perhaps it is oily from the portion of wet hops thrown in? Each sip invites you to take another one (and another one). A perfect amount of carbonation…any more I think would interfere with the flavors.
O – Would drink again…probably will buy another bottle if the store I buy from hasn't ran out of their case yet. FFF never disappoints. I would love to try this as fresh as possible...wish FFF gave out bottled-on dates.

4.3/5 rDev +0.7%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Amber/light mahogany body with an ivory/light citrine head.
Aroma: Earth, pine, honeydew, pear - all with a somewhat sweet resolve.
Taste: Strong malt and hop profile. Hops are crisp and earthy, yet extremely smooth.
Mouthfeel: Moderately light and crisp with a smooth finish; piney aftertaste.
Overall: The first time I tried 'Broo Doo', I was not impressed; I found it dreadful and had to drain-pour it. That was a little over two years ago, when I was just introduced to craft beer. After having it two weeks ago with a greater understanding and appreciation for craft beer, along with a far more experienced palate, I can say that I was wrong to dismiss this one and relegate it to my 'shit list'. Try this and enjoy - you will not be disappointed.
