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.

A - pours a very hazy coper orange with almost a hint of peach color. Finger of near white dense head. Lacing and especially retention are fantastic.

S - lots of sweet and citrus fruits, mango, grapefruit, peach and pear type aromas. 95% citrus sweetness, 5% caramel malt type aromas.

T - lots of sweet fruits which balance amazingly with the bitter hoppyness. More on the sweet side (with the aformentiomed fruits) but finish and aftertaste have a nice almost resinous bitterness.

M - ideal. Medium bodied with decent carbonation somewhat smooth and very very drinkable.

O - lots of sweet fruits, more on that side rather than bitter although a great combination of both qualities.

22 oz bottle courtesy of fthomasl's dad pours a lightly hazed gold color with an ample off white head. Nice retention and lace.

Nose is tropical as fuck...juicy and grapefruit galore. Hops are just a melange of wet grass -> citrus -> tropical -> pine. Wet, juicy fruit deliciousness

Taste is bubblegum, tropical fruit, juicy fruit gum...wow, just an amazing mix of light malt and hop flavors. Wow...a truly revolutionary brew. Love it.

A - Pours a nice burnt orange with a two-finger white head. Good amount of heavy lacing.

S - Smell is awesome. Lots of piney hops and tropical fruits.

T - Lots of sweet tropical fruits with a solid malt backbone. Nice bitterness from the hops in the finish.

M - Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Has a nice lingering bitterness.

O - Fantastic harvest ale. I could get used to drinking this every fall.

650mL bottle:

The beer poured a clear bright golden color and produced a huge slightly off white, thick head that was very well retained and eventually settled into a half finger cap that lasted throughout the beer. The beer gave off a pretty pronounced pine hop aroma. For a harvest ale, I expected it to be a little more balanced, but overall still an enticing aroma. The taste of the beer was also too hoppy; at least initially...it did eventually give off a nice malt taste as well, but only after the beer warmed a nit. The beer was pretty easy to drink, given the elevated ABV, moderate feel, smooth and enjoyable.
