Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is brewed during the hop harvest with a portion of unkilned or “wet” hops fresh off the vine. Apricot in color, Broo Doo’s nose has dominant orange, pine sap and floral notes, balanced by a glazed nut and toffee malt body. This celebration of the hop harvest has intense tropical fruit, citrus and spicy accents that showcase the complexity of the hops we all love.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter the golden orange color, 2 inches of white head, and cloudy body entices. A very light pale ale? Oh what the heck lets just call it a harvest ale and forget trying to pick a style. This is still on the light side of colors, thinner on the head than some with a good density.

The smell is of citrus hops, fresh and citrus hints of lemon and grape fruit. A touch of caramel malt is subtle and well in the back ground, a clear sign this isn’t imperial.

The hops here don’t take on just the citrus but they take on a touch of funk and a good twang. I’d like to know what hops are used here. They remind me in part of the founders harvest, but these are at best just a blend with a few similarities. This actually as a flavor that as someone pointed out is a lot like “cat piss” though this was followed by “give me the cat piss beer” so don’t think of this has a bad thing. The malt here balances things well for hop powered beer without the malt pushing things to the sweeter levels.

There is so much hop favor here backed by just the right amount of malt to leave things wonderfully hoppy without getting too bitter to make it off putting. The body and the abv leave thins wonderful!

10 bucks a bottle? God I hate that recommend a beer this over priced, but it is a MUST try for anyone who has an interest in hops. It is simply amazing beer as all the three floyds hoppy offerings.
