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 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.
