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 a hazy golden with a thick, white head. Good retention and outstanding lacing. Lots of tropical fruit and citrus on the nose with a faint dough aroma. Lots of grapefruit, mango, orange, and pine on the front of the tongue. Becomes increasingly bitter through the finish with faint hints of sweet caramel. Dry finish. Well balanced. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, this might be the best wet-hop IPA out there!

A: A nice agressive pour into a 3F Teku produced a big 3 finger head. Mixed size bubbles in the head and as it slowly receeds it got the chunky honey comb look. Bright white and left behind a coat of lacing along the entire side of the glass. A golden yellow to soft orange color with a slight haze on the first pour.

S: Strong sustaining tropical fruit aroma on my first impression. Melons, oranges, pineapple and grapefruit hop aromas dominate the nose. A noticable fresh cut grass scent also. A touch of alcohol comes through. malt is is almost undetectable.

T: Oranges, pineapples and juicy grapefruit hop flavor on the first sip. the grassy character comes through in the taste but balances nicely with the round hop bitterness. Very flavorful and complicated. Malt is noticable in the way of biscuit and bread crust.

M: A stickey mouthfeel that i love. the body feels on the medium to moderate side but it might be the hop oils that gives the impression of bigger body. moderate carbonation makes the bitterness pop.

O: Im really enjoying this years harvest/wet hop beers. This one has the orangey, freshcut grass, round hops just like founders but with a bit more orange. Big fan.

Poured into my Samuel Smith's pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a two finger head that is dense as hell. A decent amount of lacing is left behind and a lot of carbonation is visible. A lot of citrusy notes, with orange being the most prominent, along with resiny hops and caramel. Taste is very resiny and bitter, but there is some sweetness in the middle to somewhat balance it. I'm not saying balance was needed, I'm saying it's a plus to the flavor. Long citrusy aftertaste on this one, and very easy to drink even though it's not very light.

Overall: This is an awesome hoppy beer.

Pours a sunset orange color with a two and a half finger tan colored head. Lots of carbonation coming off of the glass. Beautiful lacing once the head finally dissipates. Smells of bright fruity hops. Get a good amount of floral, along with grapefruit, orange, and mango. Some sweet malt presence as well. Not as resinous in the aroma as a lot of fresh hop beers. Unlike what the aroma would lead you to believe, the taste starts with a crisp, resinous bitterness. I knew Floyds wouldn’t disappoint in the bitterness category. Bites at the tongue. Then in the middle get some floral, mango, and grapefruit notes, as well as some toast, bread, and carmel from the malt. The finish really balances the bitterness with a sweet, creamy, piney, fruity finish. Getting lots of sweet floral, orange, mango, grapefruit, carmel, and toast. No alcohol at all. Dry bitterness lingers on the palate. Nice carbonation in the beginning then get a creamy, oily mouthfeel at the end. High medium body. Well done ipa and really shows off the great qualities of hops. Three Floyds delivers again.

a: copper with 2 finger white head. the latter recedes leaving behind frothy lacing.

s: piney hops & loads of citrus (grapefruit, orange, mango)

t: slightly bitter hops come first transitioning into mellow wave of citrus & ending with some maltiness

m: slightly juicy though not as much as other wet hop IPAs I've had. med-high carbonation dry finish

o: Decent harvest ale but definitely not among the best I've had. Unfortunately the taste is muted in comparison to the nice aroma.
