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.

Imbibed at the FFF Brewpub 10/12/2010.

Appearance -- Pours a burnt orange hue with golden highlights and two fingers of sudsy white head. Nice lacing. A little bit more head retention would've made this a 5. Still, phenomenal.

Smell -- Massive citrus hop aroma with fresh cut lemon, grapefruit, and tangerine. Tropical fruitiness is also in the mix, but citrus dominates. Reminiscent of a wet-nap, actually. Mild caramel sweetness also in the mix. Only quip - wish it was more aromatic, that there was more of this intoxicating hop aroma go imbibe. A pretty forgivable failing.

Taste -- Bright, juicy citrus hop flavor dominates all over the place - lemon/lime, grapefruit, tangerine; again, reminiscent of the smell of a wet-nap. Hop bitterness is pronounced, but not bracing. Caramel malt back lends brightness to the citrus notes and keeps the bitterness in balance - nowhere near malty. Long grapefruit pith finish. Excellent.

Mouthfeel -- A hair fuller than medium-bodied with an abundance of fine prickly carbonation.

Drinkability -- It probably helped that I had this harvest IPA within a week after bottling and straight from he source, but it's still heads and shoulders over every other IPA I've had to date. FFF never disappoints in the hops department, and this is certainly no exception.

Pours a slightly hazy bright orange with bright white head. Left its mark down my glass.

Very inviting aroma of pineapple and grapefruit with some dank pine sap.

Juicy pineapple, grapefruit and orange peal dominate the taste with some dank hops. Keith Sweat... Wet!

Medium body with moderate carbonation. This bomber is disappearing REAL quick. Very easy drinking

Overall, a fantastic harvest ale. Wet, dank, juicy and very easy drinking. Fantastic

Thanks to cfrances33 for this one!

Beautiful beer... warm golden body topped with a milky two fingers of dense head, perfect lacing, loads of pinpoint beading.

Massive hop profile - sappy pine notes, sweet mellow citrus qualities, thick mango character, not noticeably bitter on the nose, very inviting.

Sweet orange flesh hops up front, some pine resin beneath that, any contributing malt qualities are overshadowed by a wide range of well balanced hop flavors, another great example of how much hops can contribute without overwhelming the palate.

Great stuff.

650mL bottle:

The beer poured a clear bright golden color and produced a huge slightly off white, thick head that was very well retained and eventually settled into a half finger cap that lasted throughout the beer. The beer gave off a pretty pronounced pine hop aroma. For a harvest ale, I expected it to be a little more balanced, but overall still an enticing aroma. The taste of the beer was also too hoppy; at least initially...it did eventually give off a nice malt taste as well, but only after the beer warmed a nit. The beer was pretty easy to drink, given the elevated ABV, moderate feel, smooth and enjoyable.

Received from by buddy Scott out in IL.
A-Pours a slightly hazy orange w/ a nice finger or so of head; excellent lacing and carbonation.

T-Flavor has grapefruit, light hops and sweet crystal malts, moderate bitterness, and dry pine on the backside.
M-Medium bodied, ending slightly dry and remarkably clean.
O-Very nice! It stuck to my mouth and left a very nice aftertaste. It did finish a bit bitter then expected; a very nice IPA by the Floyds!
