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.

Bomber poured into tulip glass.

A: Medium rusty orange color; inch of slightly off-white head

S: A bit of weediness; definitely hop dominated, but a small presence of grainy/bready malts. Orange peel...

T: Fresh, juicy hop burst. Honestly, just fantastic balance in this one. Despite the fresh wet hop presence, enough malt not to leave a puckering bitterness. The wet hop has an earthy taste to it, too.

M: Medium...just right.

O: Being in Chicago, I have easy access to most of the 3F offering. This might be my second favorite 3F beer (after ZD, of course!). It just works for me. Cheers...

A-Cloudy bright orange, some carbonation with a one finger head that tries to leave behind some lacing.

S-Hops. Earthy, pine, citrus and orange. Some floral. More Hops.

T-Lots of hop resins, earthy notes. Floral and citrus as well. Good bitterness as well.

M-Medium bodied, some carbonation, hop resins again.

O-Was expecting a little more from this beer. Still a good IPA but did not taste as good as I was expecting, when compared to other wet hopped IPAs I've had.

Big thanks to Chris for this extra. Poured into a Dark Horse pint.

A Clear copper/amber in color with a one finger head. Nice retention in the head and some carbonation bubbling up to the top. Some sticky lacing is left after it goes down.

S Earthy green bitterness and some citrus.

T Piney bitter bite upfront with some citrusy bitterness and lemon zest. There's some subtle malt in here but a nice hoppy bitterness is this things deal. Finish is bitter and lingers. 4/4.5

M Medium feel with a good level of carbonation. Feels crisp and finishes somewhat dry.

O Really nice wet hop IPA with a malty presence. I would love more of this.

Pours a caramel orange with pure white head. Good lacing with a thin layer of head retained throughout.

Smells of sweet citrus, with soft grapefruit and mandarin orange coming out the most. Caramel malts balance the nose well. Weediness rounds it out.

Taste is a fantastic citrus explosion, with the slightest sweetness from the malts making it into an incredibly flavorful beer. Not unlike grapefruit with just a bit of sugar sprinkled on it, which I happen to like more than almost any other fruit combo.

Mouthfeel is clean and slightly harsh due to the excess hops. Keeps the mouth slightly sticky but mostly clean and enhances the drinkability significantly. Overall an incredibly balanced and sensational IPA.

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.

Bomber poured into a snifter

A – hazy orange, pours with a 2 finger head,falls to about a 0.5-1 finger head retention. Minor amount of lacing on side of glass. After sitting for a bit, the head retention fades to a thin film.

S – Could smell the hops from a foot away while pouring it! Very floral and citrusy…reminds me of a less extreme Stone Enjoy By. Definitely get some orange citrus fruit smells coming off of it. I really like this smell…reminds me of a nice double IPA.

T – My first impression is that it is very tasty but a little disappointing. After recently finishing a case of zombie dust, the hops almost fall flat here. For any other brewery, this would be a really good drink. For a FFF bomber, I’m a tad disappointed. It tastes like a slightly cut back version of the aroma: piney and citrusy. It finishes off with a nice, sweet malt taste. Tastes almost spicy at first, then fades to the citrus-piney hops, then fades to the delicate amount of sweet malts (with the hops still lingering there in the background). There’s a decent amount of bitter aftertaste that lingers nicely. Every sip I've taken gets a little better. More sips yield a nice complexity that this beer possesses. The malt and hop profiles combine very nicely with this one.

M – It feels very smooth and almost slick. Perhaps it is oily from the portion of wet hops thrown in? Each sip invites you to take another one (and another one). A perfect amount of carbonation…any more I think would interfere with the flavors.

O – Would drink again…probably will buy another bottle if the store I buy from hasn't ran out of their case yet. FFF never disappoints. I would love to try this as fresh as possible...wish FFF gave out bottled-on dates.

Bomber poured into a tulip
2012

A- Pours hazy golden yellow. A moderate one finger white head with decent retention.

S- This beer is bursting with citrus and pine and sweet bitter hop glory. A slightly sweet and dry malt backbone.

T- A moderate to high bitterness up front and through the entire mouth. This beer has a crisp tingling feel and crisp taste. The hops provide a variety of citrus flavors as well as pine and some herbal spice. Malts are not to present but are crisp and clean allowing the hops to do work.

M- Light body and very easy to drink. Bitter and crisp. Quite dry.

O- This is a good IPA but a bit of a let down if i'm to be honest. A Fresh hop ale from a brewery known for their hoppy beers should have a more bold hop profile. Its still a good and easy going beer.
