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.

4.78/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bomber bottle into a tulip glass

A - Golden with tangerine hues and one and a half fingers of head.

S - Sweet grapefruit, light pine, some passion fruit, orange, lots of citrus, something that smells like Fuggles hops. Very nice and refreshing.

T - Resiny bitterness and citrus which quickly gives way to a malty sweetness, almost honey-like, and then a bit of bitterness on the backend. This doesn't seem like a 7.0% beer. Tasty.

M - Medium. After a few sips I can already feel my saliva getting thicker but it probably won't bother too many other people.

D - One bomber bottle is enough, I think, but this is so tasty I think I could polish off another one.

Overall a really great offering from Three Floyd's. Delicious, great aroma, the only thing that bugs me is the mouthfeel a bit but I think that's more of a personal issue I have with IPAs, APAs, and any other thick, bitter beers. Don't let that stop you from trying it though.

Poured from 22ox. bomber into rounded glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy orange-copper with about a half-finger's worth of head, settled after a mildly vigorous pour. Head is off-white, frothy and bubbly. Streams of carbonation buzz about the exterior of this brew. Only the shadows of my fingers can be perceived through the body of this slightly murky beer. Head recedes to a ring around the glass as the brew fades, leaving behind only the slightest traces of lacing on the glass. 4.75/5

Smell: Fresh, citrusy hops burst out into the nostrils on first whiff of this brew. This is the kind of piney, citrusy friend of ours that we know and love, just fresher than usual. Smell settles fairly swiftly after the pour, though maybe my nostrils are already numbed by even just the aroma of the hops in this concoction. A distinct orange strain remains throughout this fresh hop beer. 4.25/5

Taste: Lush tropical citruses and piney, resiny hops don't as much attack as much as flood over the taste buds. Noah would have to build a second ark to float through this sea of fresh, sticky hops. Yet the flavor and bitterness, although very forward and present, is not anywhere close to overpowering. The bitterness starts off on the almost-heavy side but subsides to a wonderful bouquet of floral hops and a just-right sweet, toasty malt backbone to complement the citrus aromas. Just a bit of dryness, a light lingering bitterness, and a juicy orange flavor brings you back for another sip. Bitterness subdues and blends beautifully with the citrus and sweetness as the beer warms. 4.75/5

Mouthfeel: bitter and sticky from the freshly harvested hops, though not as lip-clinging as other harvest hop ales I've had in recent weeks. A bit creamy and smooth on the way down, especially for a bitter-forward harvest ale. Medium carbonation does not inhibit the drinkability at all. Just a little sticky around the lips. Just right. 5/5

Overall: Another fantastic brew from the boys at FFF. Hop-forward yet not so in your face that you can't have a few of these (though they do come in 22oz.-ers, so I wouldn't recommend more than one in a sitting!). Great balance of slightly dry bitterness and juicy sweet malts to keep the drinking easy and the tongue feeling. Too bad this only shows up in October. 4.75/5
