A 22 ounce bottle from JM03; thank you very much! Poured into a Deschutes tulip glass...
A vibrant, golden straw color that is hazy to the point of opaque. A vigorous pour yields two finger’s width of foamy, pillowy, pure white head that lingers for about a minute before complete dissolution. Generous strands of lacing remain to glass in a ring-like fashion, indicating the level of the beer at each prior sip.
The aroma is a bouquet of citrus, floral hops, pine, straw, wheat, various earthen grains, and a decent amount of caramel malt. While the malt may suggest this bottle has some age on it (the worn, illegible stamp on the bottom of the bottle is no help at all), the nose is still quite balanced and appealing.
It tastes very similar to how it presents in the nose, with grapefruit, lemon, and pine leading the way into some spicy (coriander) hops, replete with straw, wheat, and the earthen grains. A burst of caramel comes towards the very end, but a rush of pine and grass finish it off. Again, it tastes a bit aged, but I personally enjoy some malt with my hops. My score in this section is a combination of personal preference and rating to style (neither really won, I just kind of averaged the score I wanted to give in each method).
Mouthfeel is crisp and bitter up front, tantalizing on the tongue, and goes down smooth. Strangely, there is a soapy, nay, oily finish/after-texture to it that is odd. Not necessarily offputting, but strange.
Overall, this is a great IPA. While my bottle may have had some age, it was still fantastically enjoyable. I had a hard time "reviewing to style" on this one because I did still find it delicious. Despite my petty gripes with it, this is the fastest I've finished a bomber solo in a long time (the GF wasn't up to helping out with this one), so take that for what you will. You may find some strange/interesting attributes in this one, but disappointment will not be amongst them.

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.
