Availability: Fall

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.

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Golden brown and lightly toasted looking. 1in head initially dies to .25in light and foamy head with a slight green tint in light.

S: Faint wet hop scent, fresh smelling.

T: Fruity wep hop character. Hops are not overwhelming. Well balanced and easy to drink.

M: Light carbonation. Body is light but with a deceptive thickness that is masked by the beer's drinkability. Pleasant aftertaste.

In-style 4.5

Received from by buddy Scott out in IL.
A-Pours a slightly hazy orange w/ a nice finger or so of head; excellent lacing and carbonation.
S-Extremely fresh, hoppy aroma w/ strong notes of sweet pineapple and underlying pine, hint of malts and floral.
T-Flavor has grapefruit, light hops and sweet crystal malts, moderate bitterness, and dry pine on the backside.
M-Medium bodied, ending slightly dry and remarkably clean.
O-Very nice! It stuck to my mouth and left a very nice aftertaste. It did finish a bit bitter then expected; a very nice IPA by the Floyds!
