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.

Pours a caramel orange with pure white head. Good lacing with a thin layer of head retained throughout.

Smells of sweet citrus, with soft grapefruit and mandarin orange coming out the most. Caramel malts balance the nose well. Weediness rounds it out.

Taste is a fantastic citrus explosion, with the slightest sweetness from the malts making it into an incredibly flavorful beer. Not unlike grapefruit with just a bit of sugar sprinkled on it, which I happen to like more than almost any other fruit combo.

Mouthfeel is clean and slightly harsh due to the excess hops. Keeps the mouth slightly sticky but mostly clean and enhances the drinkability significantly. Overall an incredibly balanced and sensational IPA.

A: Creamy 2 finger head. Very hazy medium dark amber. Some spotty lacing. Head dissipates to a fine dusting.

S: Sweet candy, very bright and lively floral hops with citrus. This hop smell reminds me that hops and marijuana are close relatives.

T: I have to tell you that this is a trip for a porter/stout guy. It's a big hop taste that feels green, fresh and lively. I thought it would overwhelm me but it didn't. It has that IPA quality which is a sort of revitalizing and zingy. The floral and citrus bitter aftertaste is really intense.

M: Medium/light body. Clean and crisp.

D: Hop lovers should check this out. For such an aggressive brew, it is amazingly drinkable. I am not a huge fan of IPA's but I thoroughly enjoyed this drink and it gives me another reason to try the other 3F's offerings.

22oz bottle picked up at the brewery for $7. Pours into my glass a clear copper orange hue with a half inch of bubbly, sticky white head on top of the brew. Harvest colors for a harvest ale! Aromas blast out of the glass with huge tropical, citric dank hop resins. It literally smells like rubbing a hop cone between your fingers. Wow, it's hard to stop smelling this one. Some slightly sweet caramel in the background, but this is all about the hops.

First sip brings a caramel, lightly toasted grain malt quickly run over by a rush of hops. Citrus and tropical fruit flavors along with green oily hop resins. There's a big bitterness but it never becomes too much. Sorta spicy. A hop lover's dream, this is one tasty brew.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth and creamy. Perfect carbonation, this brew is incredibly easy to drink and a bomber goes down without the blink of an eye. Another triumph in hoppy goodness from Three Floyds, this time in a lower abv beer. Pick this one up at all costs and drink it fresh. My favorite wet hopped harvest ale I've sampled this year. I need more.

Bomber pours a clear amber orange body with a healthy offwhite head that has some staying power. Lots of clingy patch lace left behind on the glass.

Aroma is fresh and leafy hops. Lots of pine and grassiness here with hints of citrus and toasted caramel.

Mouthfeel is light medium to medium in body with a pleasant carbonation that enlivens. There is an herbal feel on the palate.

Taste opens with citrusy orange hops, quickly seguing into grapefruit rind and pine cone hop bitterness. Caramel malt toastiness is present throughout but never intrudes.

Very endearing and highly drinkable. An excellent harvest ale whose drinkability is limited only by price and availability.

From memory while on our beercation.
Served in a pint glass with two fingers worth of thick and creamy white head, slightly hazy golden body. Good retention and lacing.

Smells amazing, citrus and floral hops with some piney notes mixed in. Carmel sweetness shows through as it warms up.

Tastes like orange juice mixed with piney hops. Wow! Very oily and dank. Some sweet malts are present but not enough to keep it balanced, it is an IPA after all made by FFF, yum.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. A very sticky, oily, piney resinous finish.

Overall I enjoyed this one quite. Very complex and flavorful.
$5 or 6 can't remember.

Darker yellow with an off-white head. Huge aromas of pineapple, pine, mango, and other citrus. Just beautiful. In the taste I got pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, and peach; so much citrus and excellently balanced. Medium carbonation and a little less than medium bodied. Best wet hop beer I've had. Another great FFF's beer!

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this beer.

The beer pours a hazy yellow-brown color with a white head. The aroma is orange citrus and pine with a tad bit of malt. There is no doubt this beer is an American IPA. The flavor is resiny, piney and orange citrus hops with some bready malt. I also get some earthy hops. The citrus characteristics taste like orange juice. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
