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.

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.

650ml bottle
Served in a conical pint glass.

A - It's golden amber in color. I have about an inch of off white head.

S - I could smell this bottle across the kitchen when I tossed the cap in the trash. Resiny pine crept towards my nostrils. Once I poured it the mango and tropical fruits became apparent.

T - It starts with mango and ends with pine.

M - Moderate with adequate carbonation.

O - This beer reminds me of Sculpin. I is similar but has enough subtle differences to be enjoyable on a different level. Good stuff.

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.
