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.

Live tasting bomber courtesy of rmcnealy (THANKS!!) into Duvel tulip.

Appearance; pours a hazy orange/pale amber color with two fingers of bubbly straw colored head. Retention is ok, with the head falling over the course of several minutes. Lacing is good with a sticky foam clinging to the sides of the glass.

Smell; Broodoo opens with mellow pine, hints of honey and notes of citrus. Slight notes of caramel and toffee a well.

Taste; follows the aroma to a t, with a lingering pine bitterness that is quite subtle and not exceptionally bitter. A very well rounded brew, with mellow flavored all around.

Mouthfeel; Broodoo is medium bodied with crisp carbonation that really accents the finish and let's the subte bitterness hang around without being overwhelming.

Overall; a damn fine beer that I think may have been a bit more lively closer to its release, still it has held up quite well, and is much better than some fresh offerings I've had!!

A very solid IPA. Love the Treasure Troll motif.

Decanted into a Sweetwater pint. Nice rich golden/orange color. Very slight haze to it. Decent off-white head.
Nose is nice grassy hops.

Nice strong hop presence in the taste. Fresh grass, some pine. Lingering juicy hops.

Nice mouthfeel.

A-Pours a clear amber with ruby highlights, a thin white head and decent lacing.

S-Caramel malts with an undertone of citrus and earthy hops.

T-Medium caramel malt with a light citrus hop finish.

M-Medium bodied and dry.

D-Nicely drinkable. This probably has lost some hop character but it's still a fine beer.
