Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 03-19-2006

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.

I love three floyds. I have never had a bad beer from three floyds. This is a good beer, but does not live up to what I expect for a 3 floyds beer. It might be best fresh and this tastes a bit aged. It does have a nice light golden color with a decent head. The smell is pleasant with a fresh light citrus sweet scent. The taste is nice but a bit too earthy. Definitely has a hop accent and maybe it's just the type of hops that gives it the earthy flavor, but I yearn for the smooth hops flavor rather than the earthy/dirt taste. So the aftertaste follows with the same earthiness and this is a drinkable beer, but it's an expensive drinkable beer. I'd rather be drinking an Alpha King!

picked this up at my local craft beer store, first time i had ever seen it and got really interested.

A - Rich golden color almost like an apple juice pour. Light creamy colored head that dissipates quickly.

S - Smells of a pretty traditional IPA crisp sweet strong hop smell, beautiful.

T - now here is the rub. really the only taste im getting is straight bitter. watery entry, very bitter taste, none of the sweet taste that i had hoped for in the smell.

M - smooth beginning that has a carbonated bite finish.

D - The bitter ness is a great thing if that is your style, but for those that don't thoroughly enjoy the bitterness this could be a sipper.

Got this in a big FFF trade with thomashardy. Thanks heaps for the awesome trade!

From a bomber into a snifter.

APPEARANCE: Pours a two finger, medium, off-white head with great retention. Perfectly clear with higher carbonation evident. Orange peel color when held to the light, but more burnt orange when not. Head slowly fades to a full film and clings to the sides. A good wisp remains until the end and leaves some decent lacing down the glass. Pretty good looking.

SMELL: Big nose for sure. Pale malts, caramel, and lost of hops. Loads of citrus, lemon and orange, and lots of grapefruit. Big, bad, hoppy nose for sure. Impressive.

TASTE: Pale malts and some caramel notes up front, but they're soon brushed aside by lots of bitter, bitingly bitter hops. Grapefruit for sure, and more pine comes through here than I'd expected from the nose. Lots of bitterness. Aftertaste is big and very persistent with bitterly bitter bitterness and more bitterness. There is definitely some hop flavor there, but it's almost too bitter for its own good.

PALATE: Medium body but quite light on the palate. Still quite creamy and somewhat smooth, goes down fine and finishes slightly fry on the palate. Slightly lighter than I'd hoped, but fine otherwise.

OVERALL: This was one bitter bastard. Lots of hops all over the place, and plenty of hop flavor, but the overriding bitterness almost ruined a really good thing. A little less bitterness would allow some of the flavor to come out a little more, but if you're a fan of crazy bitter brews, you'll love this one. I enjoyed it and would gladly drink another, though I think I'd have to mentally prepare myself for another encounter.

A: Perfect amber color with little to no translucence through the rich amber color.

S: The smell is one of the high notes of the brew. It smells like a rich IPA. My nose does not pick up on the fruity notes the bottle states.

T: I was a little let down by the taste. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE 3F but I expected a bit more bite out of this brew or a little more sweet to the 1st taste. It's little on both. It has a strong hoppy presence - good for a Hop Head like myself but not much of any interesting "Not Normal" hop flavor complex that represents the 3F line.

M: Really good body to this beer.

O: A flavorful beer that captures the IPA characteristics.

What can I say, I'm a sucker for anything FFF's. I saw this in WI at Casanova, had to pick one up.

Served into a tulip from a 22 oz. bottle.

Appearance - Very nice deep copper hue with a tight laced white head. Quickly faded into a typical fresh hopped beer.

Smell - Nothing spectacular. Had a huge simcoe nose, really earthy, no citrus hops like I expected from FFF, but that's not a bad thing, just different.

Taste - Lots of simcoe hops, piney, pungent, no citrus hops. Really not a lot of malt here, I expected a bit more.

Mouthfeel - Very nice. Not too thing, coats the mouth briefly with the fresh hopped flavor, doesn't linger.

Overall - 3.5, not another spectacular release from 3 FFF's. I wouldn't trade for it that's for sure. However, it's worth a purchase if you can get it in your local market.
