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.

Beer poured from bottle into a Nonic shaped pint glass

A - Beer pours with a golden clear colored body; nice two finger+ head formed; well-carbonated; not much lacing formed on the glass though; head held very, very well; cool label

S - Rye; citrus pine notes; hop rinse blast to the nose; caramel malt; toasted pine nuts; hop smell is well-balanced and not overpowering, making the beer quite herbal; chamomile; floral; orange; grapefruit sourness

T - Caramel and roasted malt; strong pine taste; deep bitter hop blast; ginger flavor burn on the tongue; light floral and herbal flavors present themselves at the beginning of the sip, but turn to hop bitterness quickly

M - Dry taste; heavy hop-caramel malt aftertaste; way, way bitter; medium body; extremely bitter; kind of tart; also leaves behind a toasted bread taste

D - Did I mention that this is bitter? well, 3F did it again, made sure we weren't disappointed; might be hard to down for most newcomers to the beer community; if you're a hop kind of guy, this is right up your alley and something you can't miss; hop bomb

Poured from a bomber bottle into a tulip glass

A - Golden with tangerine hues and one and a half fingers of head.

S - Sweet grapefruit, light pine, some passion fruit, orange, lots of citrus, something that smells like Fuggles hops. Very nice and refreshing.

T - Resiny bitterness and citrus which quickly gives way to a malty sweetness, almost honey-like, and then a bit of bitterness on the backend. This doesn't seem like a 7.0% beer. Tasty.

M - Medium. After a few sips I can already feel my saliva getting thicker but it probably won't bother too many other people.

D - One bomber bottle is enough, I think, but this is so tasty I think I could polish off another one.

Overall a really great offering from Three Floyd's. Delicious, great aroma, the only thing that bugs me is the mouthfeel a bit but I think that's more of a personal issue I have with IPAs, APAs, and any other thick, bitter beers. Don't let that stop you from trying it though.

A: Pours a slightly hazy gold with a thin, creamy white head.

S: On the nose, Broo Doo is exactly what one would expect from a beer that is brewed with wet hops. Huge aromas of orange, lemon, grapefruit, mint, sage, and pine are easily detectable.

T: Resinous on the palate with notes of pine, spruce, peppermint, sage, grapefruit, bitter orange, lemon, caramel, cream, biscuits, and an earthy, onion-like bitterness. The finish is sticky and hoppy, with citrus and pine flavors galore.

M: Medium bodied and sticky, but still relatively smooth. Carbonation is not overpowering, but is still present. It has that resinous feel that one normally expects of American IPAs.

O: Don't expect restraint or subtlety here. Broo Doo is a big, hoppy beer and is clearly not trying to be anything else. It succeeds at what it's trying to do, but also brings nothing new to the table. If the resinous, citrusy, herbal flavors of the hops and the creamy, biscuity flavors of the malt were better integrated, it would be an excellent, if predictable, take on the style. As is, however, it is merely a very solid brew for the average American hophead.
