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.

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.

Thanks to JohnPPutz for this bottle!

As Vince Vaughn said in Dodgeball when he saw Christine Taylor’s home decor... “Dear Barbara.” SCARY 22oz bottle poured into a New Belgium Globe.

Bottled ??/??/11

A: Copper and hazy. Nice pillow of foam that dissipates until it is nearly gone except for a small ring around the outside of the glass. Leaves a very oily appearance.

S: Not as much fresh citrus and pine as I expected. Grassy with an apparent smell of malt, alcohol and what I can most closely identify as licorice.

T: Slightly sweet malt turns into pine. I get a little bit of pineapple and just a touch of the onion-y hop flavor that I dislike.

M: A little oily but not enough to be a distraction. Not as much of a tingling sensation as with some other hop-forward beers.

O: In the realm of IPAs, it was pretty good. But I expect different/more from a Fresh Hop ale. I’m not feeling the benefit of all the trouble that goes into brewing with fresh hops with this one.

What can I say, I'm a sucker for anything FFF's. I saw this in WI at Casanova, had to pick one up.

Served into a tulip from a 22 oz. bottle.

Appearance - Very nice deep copper hue with a tight laced white head. Quickly faded into a typical fresh hopped beer.

Smell - Nothing spectacular. Had a huge simcoe nose, really earthy, no citrus hops like I expected from FFF, but that's not a bad thing, just different.

Taste - Lots of simcoe hops, piney, pungent, no citrus hops. Really not a lot of malt here, I expected a bit more.

Mouthfeel - Very nice. Not too thing, coats the mouth briefly with the fresh hopped flavor, doesn't linger.

Overall - 3.5, not another spectacular release from 3 FFF's. I wouldn't trade for it that's for sure. However, it's worth a purchase if you can get it in your local market.
