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.

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.
S-Extremely fresh, hoppy aroma w/ strong notes of sweet pineapple and underlying pine, hint of malts and floral.
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!

Poured from a bottle into a New Belgium snifter. Fairly clear light amber color and a thin layer of foam that has some nice retention. The nose is quite punchy and citrus-like with notes of lemon, grapefruit, and a bit of pineapple.

Medium body with a nice, velvety smooth, yet firm, feel. The flavor is crisp and refreshing with loads of dry hoppy goodness! Big flavors of orange zest, lemon, and grapefruit predominate. I don't detect too much maltiness, yet somehow the flavors seem very balanced and the beer is not at all overly bitter. It is seriously good. Upon warming a bit, the maltiness becomes a bit more evident.

The bottle says that they hops in this beer go ``from the vine to brewhouse in one day''. I can believe it. Another terrific beer from 3F.

A rocky liht tan two finger head develops with lots of active fat popping bubbles. Leaves only slight scattered lace. Body is a deep amber orange. Nose is a huge hoppy floral explosion with lots of fresh sweet citrus rind notes and some prickley coriander and rich pine. Creamy hop notes jump on the tongue with an array of nicely balanced bitter and sweetness. This tasty blend is a mix of minerals, pine notes, dandilions and citrus zest. Fresh hops are very juicy and refreshing. Mouthfeel is a soft bitter hue with a hint of sweetness. Ranks up there with the best of the style. Super drinkable.
