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.

4.15/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a sunset orange color with a two and a half finger tan colored head. Lots of carbonation coming off of the glass. Beautiful lacing once the head finally dissipates. Smells of bright fruity hops. Get a good amount of floral, along with grapefruit, orange, and mango. Some sweet malt presence as well. Not as resinous in the aroma as a lot of fresh hop beers. Unlike what the aroma would lead you to believe, the taste starts with a crisp, resinous bitterness. I knew Floyds wouldn’t disappoint in the bitterness category. Bites at the tongue. Then in the middle get some floral, mango, and grapefruit notes, as well as some toast, bread, and carmel from the malt. The finish really balances the bitterness with a sweet, creamy, piney, fruity finish. Getting lots of sweet floral, orange, mango, grapefruit, carmel, and toast. No alcohol at all. Dry bitterness lingers on the palate. Nice carbonation in the beginning then get a creamy, oily mouthfeel at the end. High medium body. Well done ipa and really shows off the great qualities of hops. Three Floyds delivers again.

a: copper with 2 finger white head. the latter recedes leaving behind frothy lacing.

s: piney hops & loads of citrus (grapefruit, orange, mango)

t: slightly bitter hops come first transitioning into mellow wave of citrus & ending with some maltiness

m: slightly juicy though not as much as other wet hop IPAs I've had. med-high carbonation dry finish

o: Decent harvest ale but definitely not among the best I've had. Unfortunately the taste is muted in comparison to the nice aroma.

Broo Doo was poured from a 22oz bomber into a pub glass. This is the epidome of the FFF taste profile. Excellence...

Appearance - Hazy copper that hold a terrific 1 1/2 inch head with solid lacing on the glass to the bottom.

Smell - Piney nose right up front with a soft bit of orange citus hoppy aroma. You know this is FFF right away.

Taste - soft bitter hops, citra up front with a very smooth slight malt bill, its a crisp break from start to finish with no aftertaste - so drinkable its almost a perfect summer beer

Mouthfeel - oily ... feels heavy but the crisp finish sums up the beer

I could drink this beer consistently, the bomber went down easily with no problem - cant wait to drink again

Broo Doo is all about the dank hops. A punch of spicy, herbal, oily hops from the nose to the finish. One of the most pungent IPAs I've ever tasted. If you love the upfront, earthy qualities of wet hop ales, then this is your beer. I really enjoyed it for what it is: an unadulterated expression of raw hop goodness.

A 650ml bottle from Nov. 2012 drunk 10 months later.

The somewhat gentle pour brings forth the sound of soda, a fizzing head like Pepsi. The head is quite big, 2" at least in a standard pint glass with only a 3/4 of liquid. It recedes fairly quickly but leaves a series of chunky, off-tan lumps of foam behind and the remnants of lace. The beer itself is cloudy though light still gets through if only in reduced amounts. An orange color with medium brown throughout.
Smell is hoppy, malt, spices, dark brown sugar with all the molasses overtones, with whiffs of floral and citrus and a touch of nut. Good balance.
Taste is very similar. Hops, malt, dark brown sugar (sweet & molasses), floral, citrus and some spices, mostly pepper and ginger. Phenomenal balance.
Medium bodied, medium+ effervescence, warming late and slightly drying. This is some good beer. Like a grown up version of an IPA, matured and in its prime. I wonder if a year of sitting caused it or the folks in Munster had it like this right out the door? Who the hell cares, it's great.

A: Big white bubbled head on a hazy dark orange.

S: Perfume. very aromatic. Mango, sourdough bread with a huge kick of citrus. Oranges with a large amount of fresh pine. Very floral.

T: Floral white honey suckle. Orange, sweet honey and toast. Reminds me of orange marmalade. Bitter pine and even more mouth puckering lemon zest. Mouthwatering. Caramel in the end with mandarin orange.

M: Medium bodied, very drinkable with a dry finish.

O: This drinks very easy, almost sessionable. Bursting with flavor. Pretty balanced though between the hops and malt. Just bitter enough on the finish. /94

Three Floyds BrooDoo Harvest Ale. "A seasonal ale that glorifies American hops. BrooDoo is brewed using fresh green "wet" hops picked right from the vine and put into our beer vats, from vine to brewhouse in one day! BrooDoo also uses the best American malt money can buy. Enjoy!"

What do troll dolls in sailor suits, princesses, unicorns and rainbows have to do with a Three Floyds Harvest Ale? Perhaps it's best not to ask.

Slightly hazy, golden hued, slim, off-white head.

Aroma, grassy hops, citric hops, tropical hops, hoppy hops. Bright, bitter, and lovely.

Taste: All that and more on board the palate. Fresh, bitter, fruity, and juicy. Medium bodied, long, bitter finish. Just enough malt to hold the balance, but plenty of room for the fresh hops to shine. A touch of sweetness creeps out, but pithy, citric, little bit o'piney bitter hops hold center stage.

I like this one, but I'm thinking I had this bottle too late in the game, for it seems the freshness should have been more forward, more pronounced. Still good, still delicious, however, it feels a touch faded, if only from 3 to 4 months time.

Poured from a bomber bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance: Had an apricot tinge. Nice white head that dissipated fairly quickly. Foam retention on glass once I started to drink it.

Smell: Had a strong citrus orange smell with pine notes. Smelled strongly of alcohol.

Taste: Quickly took over my palate with a strong floral presence. Juicy at first and then dries out. Taste similar to drinking orange juice, but with a strong alcohol after taste.

Mouth feel: Strong alcohol presence makes your tongue tingle at first, but goes down smoothly leaving a slight burn.

Got this beer for my birthday from a friend. I enjoyed drinking it and would rate it as a 4.

3.63/5  rDev -15%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a deep golden apricot…fluffy, cloud-like off white head formed and a finger width remains…dense color, not overly transparent, though I can see tons of bubble action when I look close…good looking brew…(4/5)

Smell: Got earthy/piney hops aroma as I poured it, very hop forward…when I stick my nose in the glass, I get tons of (mouthwatering!) robust earthy/piney/musty/resinous hops mixed with strong caramel/toffee malt aromas…sweet and some mild citrus (orange, mandarin)…it’s nice, but I fear the hops have lost a bit of life over the past few months, leaving the sweet caramel/toffee malt to dominate…side note, I definitely get a little bubblegum, tropical fruitiness from the inside of the bottle…(3.75/5)

Taste: Much like the nose, wet hops abound…tons of robust/musty/earthy/piney/resinous hops flavor up front followed by sweet caramel malts…the flavor is somewhat robust but not overly exotic or dynamic…this brew certainly doesn’t have the same life that I normally find from FFF…it has their classic sweet/caramel malt flavor, but lacks in the zesty citrus flavors that I normally expect from them…I do get a touch of lemony citrus bitterness, but it’s faint and certainly could be more…rather straight forward and somewhat plain…(3.5/5)

Mouthfeel: Medium body…light to medium carbonation brings a hint of lemon/citrus bitterness…chewy, smooth, a touch dry in the finish…the feel is really the liveliest part of the brew and saves it from mediocrity…(4/5)

Overall: This is a good brew, but I’m sadly thinking it’s lost a step over the last 4 months as Broo Doo wss bottled in October...the hops flavor is not zesty, lively or fresh and barely hangs on to the sweet caramel malts that dominate the flavor at this point…it’s good and drinkable, but just leaves my palate wanting…I’ve had other IPA’s (Clown Shoes Supa Hero being one) that were a bit aged, caramel malt dominant, but where the citrus hops, or any hops for that matter, still were apparent and influential in the overall flavor…I’m a huge fan of Three Floyds and would put that brewery up there with the best and maybe only second to Bell’s (born and raised in MI), but this brew was a bit disappointing…I wouldn’t recommended rushing to the store in Michigan City, IN where I got this from, but I would try it again next fall when it was a lot fresher…(3.5/5)

4.23/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Copper orange color. About a finger worth of head on a pretty decently aggressive pour. Decent lacing on the glass. Not as much carbonation throughout as I would have hoped. May be attributed to slightly thicker texture.

Smell: Definitely getting a lot of the wet hops here. Really bright and full of tropical citrus. A very little bit of the alcohol is picked up here, but only adds a layer of complexity rather than being offensive. Just a ton of bright hops.

Taste: Some of the wet hops were going due to this being a Fall release but the overall character was still very strong. The front of this beer is orange peel, sweet hops, caramel, and bright fruits. The wet hops really carry the body of this beer. Hops just blast the palette and really do some damage in a wonderful way. Three Floyds has a very distinct hop crisp feeling which I believe is prevalent in all their beer, namely Alpha King, Gumballhead, and Pride and Joy. Its almost a honey tartness but seems to be their calling card.

Mouthfeel: Really does a number on the palette. Dryness from the hops also plays a role with a molasses caramel sweetness.

Overall: If you blind folded me and gave me this brew I feel like I could identify it as a Three Floyds brew. A lot of their characteristics shine here. Certainly worth a try if you see a bottle around.

2012 vintage poured into FFF Teku glass

Pour: This is a beautiful dark copper-orange color that is hazy. There is a 2 finger off white head with significant lacing evident. Tons of tiny bubbles rising to the surface.

Smell: Wow what a huge hit of sweet candy like hops hit at first. Very typical of FFF with the tropical notes of orange, grapefruit, mango and pineapple. This is quickly followed by a resin/grass and floral hops.

Taste: Interesting as the taste has more resinous hops than the nose would suggest. Pine at first but I also am getting the tropical somewhat with orange and grapefruit. A bit more bitter than I remember other FFF offerings to be but quite good.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. This is oily and slick covering the palate with a bit of stickiness.

Overall: Once again FFF has met my expectations with Broo Doo. This is once again one of their yearly releases that I will seek out to enjoy again.

650 mL bottle poured into a chalice.

Appearance - Hazy orange body with an ample white head. Sticky foam clings inside the glass.

Smell - Musty pine hops. Resiny with some grapefruit notes. Lacks the hop presence of other Three Floyds IPAs.

Taste - Similar in hop profile to the nose, with a cracker malt flavor. Bitter in the finish and dry.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation and fairly bitter, but still easy drinking.

Overall - While better than most IPAs, it's a little disapppointing. Looking for a juicier hop profile, but this falls just slightly flat compared to regular release from Three Floyds.

Pours an opaque peach color. The head is a bright white, finger thick of different sized bubbles. Retention is slight, and a slight lace is left behind.

The smell is out of this world. The wet hopped beers you can smell from across the room and this is no different. Amazing citrus smell, pineapple. Slight orange peel and pine. Faint malt scent hides in the background.

The taste is as good as the smell. Really, as good a tasting IPA as I can think of. Extremely hop forward, but with what I'm guessing are Cascade hops, it's the way to go. Pine and citrus flirt with the taste buds. Just enough malt and yeast to keep the hops in check.

For an IPA, it's extremely soft on the palate. A split second of sweet followed by high, but quality bitterness. The bitterness lasts into the swallow, but is welcome and never overpowering. Resiny pine coats the tongue and never lets go.

Overall, it's as good an IPA as there is. Sure, it's bitter, but it's supposed to be...however, it's bitter just the way it supposed to be and that makes it an amazing beer overall. I accidentally bought a second bottle by mistake...so glad I did.

T - It starts with mango and ends with pine.

M - Moderate with adequate carbonation.

22 oz bottle into a FFF .5L glass. Thanks HopsMatt!

A - Pours a hazy dark amber/orange body. Two finger off white head forms and settles into a thick cap and edging. Fantastic lacing and retention. Simply a gorgeous beer.

S - Cotton candy sweet hops lead into some grass, grapefruit and herbal bitterness. Plenty of caramel malt. Its so beyond tropical that it comes off as candy like. Such an intoxicating aroma.

T - Sweet mango candies, juicy grapefruit, caramel mats, and pine. A light bitterness cuts through all the sweetness. Insanely delicious.

M - Medium bodied and creamy, spot on carbonation. Alcohol is not noticeable. Super drinkable.

O - I think I just found my new favorite we hop ale. I wasn't expecting much considering its age, but its drinking phenomenally. Just a candy sweet cotton candy/grapefruit bomb.

poured into Boltcutter tulip.

reviewed from notes taken on 11/30/2012.

Appearance: golden bodied beer with 2 fingers of white head. Lacing is nice and thick coating the glass.

Smell: Pine and grapefruit. Cracker and bready malts. Citrus and tropical fruits. Fresh juicy smelling hops!

Taste: moderate bitterness. Pine, grapefruits, and orange peel. Fresh and clean tasting hops. Its almost polarizing to me because I almost feel like all 3 Floyds hoppy beers have the same hop profiles except the zombie dust that is...

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Any really good hoppy beer by 3 Floyds. Nothing that standouts out to me as special, but a really solid wet hop ale. I will take a 4pk Founders Harvest Ale any day because it tastes better and has a way better price point and you get twice a much beer for half the cost.

Review taken from notes- exactly 3 weeks ago.

1 pint 6 oz brown bomber style bottle. FFF label consists of artwork with a crazy looking troll with hops for hair. A princess and unicorn set off a rainbow background that's nothing but FFF in style. Poured into a nonic style pint glass.

A - hazy golden orange in color. Excellent frothy head that's a shade of white. Leaves the glass with a thick sticky ring of lace throughout the experience.

S - fantastic wet hop resin. Mostly citrus with big hits of floral and pine. A fairly oily hop aroma with a good malt backbone. Whiffs of orange, grapefruit, mango, grassy pine, and light pineapple with hints of sweet caramel.

T - big fresh hop flavor that starts out with a light floral flavor. Big bursts of citrus and pine resin quickly follow. Notes of grapefruit, lemon, pine resin, orange peel, and a variety of tropical fruits. Some pale malt with a touch of caramel sweetness balance the flavor in a class manner. Finish has a crisp bitterness with hits of spice.

M - smooth medium body that's thickness allows for a creamy and easy mouthfeel.

O - one of the best harvest ales using the wet hop technique I've ever experienced. Scratch that.. It may just be the best I've experienced. It's really a top shelf ipa and has all the class to leave you thirsting for more. I dont think FFF can do hops wrong and im to the point of claiming they dont do anything wrong .It falls in very well with a great lineup of hoppy brews from a great brewery. It's something I'll enjoy every year around this time.

22 oz. bottle served in a DHF signature glass.

A: Pours a semi hazy apricot color with a thick and frothy white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thick collar that leaves a ton of soapy lace down the glass.

S: Floral and piney, there is a nice underlying tropical fruit smells as well. The hoppy scents rest on a toffee and oaty malt backbone.

T: Bitter pine up front and throughout. Huge initial burst of resinous hops, there is some light floral notes and a kiss of citrus. Light grapefruit and a ton of sweet oat malt on the finish.

M: Medium bodied with a sticky mouthfeel. Nice medium-high carbonation level and sweet/oily hop finish.

O: Much more resinous and bitter than the nose would suggest. Overall it's a nice wet hop/harvest ale, but I'd pick up a Founders Harvest Ale any day.

A- Pours a cloudy orange color with a half finger of a white colored head. The head dissipates slowly.

S- A real nice smelling IPA. Lots of citrus and floral notes on the aroma. Grapefruit, orange and mango are most notable in the smell.

T- Starts off bitter, with piney hops shining through in the taste more than any. Some citrus is there as well though. Finishes with some sweet malts.

M- Medium bodied, bitter and hoppy with a dry finish.

One of the better wet-hopped IPAs I've had this season.

1619th Review on BA
Bottle to LA Teku
22oz

Thanks to Pmoney for this one

App- I liked this color. It was almost a pure orange and when you look at it, it was almost a clear peach like color in the center. A small 1/2" head that faded pretty quickly and only had a couple dots of cling on the side of the glass.

Smell- It was fairly sweet on the nose, with a bit of werthers original candy and then went into a good hoppy note with some cream and a bit of a paired earthy grass note. Overall, a nicer aromatic beer that didnt go overboard with a giant hop kick or a malt bomb.

Taste- Its a very nice IPA. Its one of the better wet hop beers that I have had. It took away some of that large caramel bite that some have and instead tamed down the earthiness and went with a more citrus, sweet and creamy hop flavor. A good amount of balance to it and fairly hidden 7% makes it quite enjoyable.

Mouth- A pretty solid medium body with a good medium creamy carbonation on the back. The finish is the creamy hops and a tinge of residual booze.

Drink- I thought it was good. As I said the flavors work well together but dont really compete all that much with eachother. The more I drank the creamier it became and then finsished it rather quickly. I would say as I did before. Best wet hop I've had.

I got a 22oz bottle of this from Woodman’s West in Madison, WI in November 2012 for $8.99.

This pours a clear, copper amber color with a fluffy off-white head. The scent is rather strong with the scent of hops indicating a bitter/crisp taste lies ahead. The taste is rich with hops! Initially you get waves of yeast, banana, and bread tones that eventually evolves into a bitter, crisp finish. Texture is great as is the complex taste as if I would expect anything less from FFF.
