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.

Appearance: Cloudy amber orange colored with an off white head.

Smell: Hops and caramel mix well with pine and grapefruit. There is an underlying spiciness also and another fruit I cant quite figure out. Mango?

Taste: Pine and hops up front with a definate caramel ending. The sweet malt flavor was very good but was not a bitter as I was expecting.

Mouthfeel/drinkability: Medium body and carbonation and a dry finish.

22 oz bottel poured into my cantilion tulip glass

Taste: Pine and hops up front with a definate caramel ending. The sweet malt flavor was very good but was not a bitter as I was expecting.

Poured from bomber into Boulevard tulip. Bottle purchased the day it came in at $8.99, but apparently it was brewed a couple months ago? What's up with that?

A: Pours a beautiful rich golden color with some orange and mild haze. Head is moderate and creamy for an IPA, fairly bright white with average retention. Minimal lacing. This is beer is very inviting.

S: Sticky pine hops hit me first, followed by some sweet citrus and a hint of candied malt that increases as it warms. Telltale damp grass is there as well, reminding me this is a fresh hop ale.

T: Exactly as expected here, which is a good thing. Very dry pine hops with that fresh hop resin. Whenever fresh hops are done right, they do a nice job of reminding me of fresh cut grass early in the spring. This hits the mark, even though it has likely faded a bit.

M: Tight and resinous without being sticky like, say, Surly Wet. Lingers quite a while, with the bitterness hitting early and often.

O: This is a fantastic example of a wet hopped beer, and I it is too bad the price is high and distribution is spotty in my area. Three Floyd's never ceases to impress me with their hopped up ales. Well worth the purchase.

A: poured an opaque apricot peach orange with yellow highlights that had good retention and a white bubbly head but it didi leave a little lacing sticking to the glass.

S: It definitely had nice piney grassy hop character with good caramel malt presence along side slight citrus and some underlying booze.

T: the hop profile was pretty piney grassy like the nose with citrus grapefruit accents that help propel the bitter bite but it did have a good balance and sweetness from the caramel malts.

M: the brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a sweet, citric, bitter hop, and sticky finish.

D: it drank really good but I'm glad that I was able to drink a more fresh version to compare how the hops have died out through time. Definitely a beer to try fresh.

Pours a very clear golden yellow with white lacing on the edges.
Strong Amarillo hop aromas coming out of the pour, grapefruit, citrus and lemon along with pale malt aromas.

Taste of amarillo, some earthy grass bitterness with grapefruit , citrus and orange rind. I also get a slight hint of peach in here which is nice. The one flavor I am not big on in this is the aftertaste which is very similar to earth. I guess with a harvest ale this is acceptable, I just think it could be a little more rounded out. Either way, I am definitely reminded of Alpha King and Gumballhead under a different label. Every time I blink I feel Three floyds comes out with another beer although somewhat similar to many of their other beers. Either way, cannot complain as most are very good. This one almost fits into that category, just something keeping it within arms reach of very good... maybe a little too dry on the finish.

Light mouthfeel and a medium carbonation, very drinkable, never would have guessed it weighs in at 7.0.
