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.

A - Hazed orange - it looks rich and viscous. Pours with a huge bubbly 2 finger head that craters and falls in a irregular fashion, but has very nice retention. The lacing sticks like glue on the sides of the glass.

S - Sweet lemon and mandarin orange, sweet/sticky resin & pine. This has some fresh-baked-bread malt action happening in the background. Finishes with fresh cut grass & and a semi-strange old grapefruit or something. Regardless of the strange grapefruit, the hops are coming out in full force on the nose.

T - This is one of those beers that packs all of its flavor right into the tip of your tongue, then other than a slight bitterness in the finish, has a relatively low aftertaste. Everything in the nose is apparent in the taste; lemon rind, mandarin orange, fresh grass, gobs of resin and more of that dingy grapefruit. There is some cracker-y and supersweet caramel malt action, but the hops have taken a resounding lead.

M - The mouthfeel is substantial; real thick body for an ipa with a lower tingling carbonation. It's bordering chewy; awesome.

O - This is a few months old and the hops are still alive. Broodoo has all the familiar characteristics of your standard ipa, but with some nice tweaks in mouthfeel and is without an overwhelming aftertaste. A solid fresh hopped light drinker.

Clear, golden body. One finger, dirty white head that settles to a short covering with moderate lacing.

Hop aromas of pine, citrus and tropical fruit. Honey malts bring some sweetness.

Oily hop flavors of pine, with some tropical fruit sweetness. Very dry cracker malts with some honey. Very bitter finish, with more citric twinge and pine.

A great wet hop ale. Drinks super easily.

A: orange copper color. thick off white head that leaves lacing all over. I can't wait to dig in.

S: Dank pine with juicy grapefruit smack me in the face.

T: Slight bitter grapefruit hits me first. Kind of lingers in the middle and finishes sweet.

M: Nice carbonation. Medium body.

O: First FFF brew I've ever had. It's very tasty, and I can only imagine what their other brews taste like!

Shared at a tasting today.

The beer is yellowish orange with a lasting white head and sparse lacing. Fresh hop aroma with tropical fruits. Oh yeah. Really nice flavor. Plenty of hop character, along with tropical fruit, citrus. Very mild and subdued malt bill, which is great. A terrific wet hop beer.

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.
