3 Floyds Harvest Ale
Poured from the 22oz bottle into a Belgian goblet. Relatively fresh, was bought in March this year.
Appearance- Beer pours cloudy and amber golden with a finger of creamy white head, and ample lacing on the sides of the glass. Beer appears to be a bit red when held to the light, the cloudiness is something of a surprise as there is likely no wheat to be found. It may be unfiltered I guess.
Smell- Oh Bobby. This sweet hop nectar comes leaping from the glass straight into my nose. Grapefruit and pear upfront. So rich, the comments on the bottle call it the finest American malts which I pawned off as a catch phrase, but it actually smells like they are using fine quality malt here, maybe not 2 row, maybe maris otter for this one. The grapefruit here smells fresh and I think this beer would be fine for breakfast.
Taste- Now here is our cream filled crumpet. The citrus is upfront quickly followed by a pine and grapefruit chaser with a wonderful smoothness that coats the tongue and mouth instantly. Malt is very even and balanced, slightly buttery. The finish is smooth and slightly sweet with an excellent hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel- Spicy, creamy, medium high in carbonation (it tried to gush but we were quick on the pour), medium full bodied, very tasty.
Drinkability- Very smooth and drinkable, the hop bitterness is amazingly balanced and 3 floyds is living up to their great expectations that everyone knows that they deliver with.

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.
