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.

4.5/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: cloudy, orange/peach color. Almost looks like a lighter version of apply cider. Solid 2 finger foam that settles into a light ring with full surface coverage. Strong lacing retains its shape on the glass.

S: big whiff of citrus and piney hops smacked me in the face right off the bat and mellows into a smooth hop aroma with hints of orange and honey. As it warms, I get a nice malt backbone, though I can't quite put my finger on the exact malt. My initial thought was that of sourdough bread, but that's not quite it. Definitely a sweetness in the malt aroma, but not quite caramel.

T: citrus hops, honey, lemon, and orange, with just a hint of pine. Some sweet malt mixes in with the bitterness of the hops- very well balanced. The hop bitterness really lingers throughout.

M: medium bodied and very smooth. Oily hops coat the tongue with a subtle acidity akin to OJ. Perfect carbonation adds just the right amount of fizzy tingle on the front of the tongue and roof of the mouth.

D: Another outstanding brew from Three Floyds. Hoppy, well-balanced, well carbonated, overall just a great beer. I wish I had a few more bottles, I'd crack open another without hesitation.

Poured into my DFH glass

Pours a bright orange with a nice 1 inch creamy orange head

Smell is not overwhelming, some citrus, some bright hops, but does not give an indication of what is to come

Taste is where this beer shines. Hits you in the face with crisp citrus, orange peel and hops. Quickly fades away so there is no lingering bitterness--makes you want more.

Mouthfeel--good for sure, but my novice palate doesn't appreciate much in this category.

Drinkability is extremely high. I will probably be limited by availability and price. I was terribly impressed for sure--and I have a FFF dreadnaught IPA still to try.

Three Floyds Broo Doo

Appearance: Three Floyds take on the fresh, “wet” hop style pale ale pours a golden, yellow with hues of orange with soapsuds-like head amounting to nearly two fingers. This inevitably slides down the glass revealing an already impressive lacing and coalesces into a thick, white crust. There is a visible moderate carbonation, but nothing out of the ordinary. Really the only gripe to be had here is the color, which is just slightly lighter than may be desirable in a pale ale. Hopefully this is not indicative of a thin malt body.

Aroma: Pine notes are everywhere in this beer, as are pineapples, peaches, and oranges. Honestly, this beer smells like opening up a pack of Starburst, without all the suggestions of artificial flavors. Based on the style, this incredibly fruity opening is not at all surprising; this is very clearly a spotlight for the hops to steal. Still, that does not mean that the malt does not make an appearance; indeed, it is there in a caramel, sweet capacity, suggesting that the light color was a red herring. This beer smells excellent; it is a real bouquet of bombastic hop flavor followed by a moderate malt backbone.

Taste: How does Three Floyds do it? Oranges, tangerines, and peaches smack the tongue immediately, but not in an overly bitter way. These flavors are followed quickly by and mingle with pine and pineapples, creating a fruit cocktail of hop flavor throughout the mouth. Next in this tropical conga line of flavor is the sweet malt that simply exists to give balance to the beer and make it more palatable. Finally, lemons, lemon curd, and rindy, citrus bitterness lend a dryness to the finish. Fantastic.

Mouthfeel: The carbonation is medium, as alluded to in the appearance, but there is a definite creaminess and thickness to the body. Furthermore, possibly due to the “wet” hops, the mouthfeel is incredibly sticky in an awesome way. The hops also impart an acceptable astringency throughout the mouth, which really makes itself known in the dry aftertaste. As has been mentioned in reviews of Hopslam and Double Trouble, this astringency forces the drinker to continue imbibing this excellent elixir, which is a wonderful, wonderful thing.

Overall: This is one of the finest beers that have ever passed these lips. This is my first experience with the “wet” hop style of pale ales, and I feel that this example will be extremely hard to top. As a result of this excellent beer, I will actively seek out other examples of this style. My only regret is that I purchased only one of these amazing brews during my recent trip to FFF. The wait until this beer makes its way to Wisconsin will be agonizing. 19/20

This was from a Growler poured in 10/23/11

This poured a color that slightly reminds you of apple juice, with a nice 2 finger thick frothy head, it doesn't disappoint in it's looks. The smell of fresh reisiny hops errupts upon opening and continues to flow from the glass. I had very citrusy notes at first then a strong pine note with small sweet malt hints at the end. The taste was no let down in it's follow up I the nose, it had all the same components as the smell from oily hop presence to the citrusy notes, the malt bill in this is nice and medium bodied and holds up to the hops but doesn't take away from them at all. The mouthfeel is nice and lively, good carbonation and a nice dry finish that makes one long for another sip. Overall id say if you can get a good deal on a grolwer of it's amazing, if you have never tried it, it's worth the price of a fresh bomber, but on any type of regular basis, it's too pricey like most 3 Floyds beers, drinkability is amazing, one that if given enough time a Growler would be awesome to finish in one sitting.

Served in a snifter

APPEARANCE

This beer is an absolutely gorgeous apricot/apple juice color. It's not hazy at all, and has lovely little bubbles floating to the top along the side of the glass. The head was about two fingers after I first poured it, but after a moments it dissipates to about half a finger's worth. The bubbles in the head are pretty big, creating a lovely soapy monster on top of the beer. It has a very lovely amount of lacing throughout the session.

SMELL

The smell isn't quite as intense as I expected. That being said, it's got a lot of aroma coming out of it - tons of American hops giving off a lovely blend of citrus, orange, some grapefruit, and juicy fruitiness. Other than the hops, I am getting some lovely sweet malt character (from the "Anerican" malt they mention in the description). There's a honey-like quality which is mouth watering. The fruity character is almost like a fruit juice that you'd find at a mega mart - notes of peach, pineapple, and mango come through.

TASTE

I love Three Floyds' IPAs - this has the typical FFF IPA flavor, though slightly less intense and much maltier. There's a lot of orange and grapefruit in this on the front of the tongue, followed swiftly by notes of peach, mango, and a lot of pine character. This isn't nearly as bitter as Dreadnaught or the other FFF IPAs, which leaves a lot more room for a nice malt flavor that compliments the hops wonderfully. The malt provides a sexy blend of toffee and caramel. This drinks a lot like a bitter fruit juice - you get tons of wonderful fruitiness and sweetness at the front of the tongue, and after you swallow a delicious bitterness remains in your mouth. The alcohol is nonexistent on the tongue.

MOUTHFEEL

Broo Doo has a nice amount of sweetness and malt character up front, then finishes dry. This combination makes this beer drinkable AS HELL. It's very smooth, and has minimal carbonation which makes the flavor linger long after you sip. This is one of those beers that could catch up to you quick because it's easy to knock back a few in a night! It's not nearly as dry as Dreadnaught, which contributes to the complexity of the overall experience of the beer.

OVERALL

You'll want to buy this beer in doubles, if not triples. Not nearly as intense as Dreadnaught or Arctic Panzer Wolf, this beer could be a session beer for hopheads without completely blowing out your palette. The fresh hops that are used in this beer may be slightly different then what you may be used to in a an IPA, but they make for a wonderfully rich and complex flavor profile that will make you crave the flavor the longer you go without taking a sip. Three Floyds seems to make 2 IPAs for every other beer they have, but when they taste this good you can see why. I don't know exactly what the meaning is behind the imagery on this pink and sparkly label (a troll, a princess, a unicorn, and a rainbow?), but I don't feel the least bit un-manly drinking from such a "precious" bottle.

Cheers!

Pours a beautiful golden straw color with a sticky, foamy finger and a half of head that hung around nicely and then dissipated.

The smell is beautiful medium hops which matches the taste although the taste bolts on a nice balance of malt.

I'm not sure how a harvest ale should taste different than this. It is sublimely sticky and smooth.

The mouthfeel is great with a creaminess that makes you feel like you have a mouthful of hops in a good way just having been liquified.

The drinkability is good but in my book experiences the limits that most hop forward beers have.

This is a really nice harvest that matches the best I've had before which is Portsmouth Brewing Hop Harvest II '10.

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.

Poured from bomber into Duvel tulip out of fridge. Let stand for a few minutes before drinking.

A: Cloudy orange with a thin white head that lingers. Pretty classic appearance and am excited to get into this.

S: A lot of earthy hops with a decent malt backbone showing through as well. I have to imagine this smells a bit more hop-forward when fresher, but I'm still impressed.

T: The hops I smelled aren't coming out as much as I had hoped. I'm getting a good amount of bitterness, but the sweetness of the malt seems to be taking over a bit. Again, a fresher bottle would I'm sure warrant a different taste.

M: A well-done aspect of the beer. Drinks very smooth and the 7% ABV is well hidden.

O: I had high expectations for this one as I've loved most everything I've had from FFF. Not a bad beer by any means, but a far cry from Dreadnaught in the IPA category.

Serving Type: 22oz Bomber poured into a Tulip Glass.

A: A deep, yellowish-oragnge color. Hazy, yet light is still able to pass through easily. About 1 inch of head that holds decently. When gone, lots of lacing is visiable.

S: Fantastic!! Sweet, citric hop aroma. Some pine notes as my nose pulls away from the tulip glass.

T: Very bitter! More pin in flavor with less sweetness than expected. I do taste hints of sweet maltness.

M: Medium bodied brew. Very refreshing for such a cold night in Joliet. Not as much carbonation as when I had this fresh in October.

D: Love the wet hop brews! And this is one of the best examples that I have had the chance to try.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle poured into a NB globe. Thanks to rmcnealy for the chance to try this one.

A: The beer pours a pretty copper orange with a huge fluffy white head that had good retention and left a nice trail of lacing throughout the session.

S: Very malt forward with a big bready nose which had a nice citrus finish on the end. The fresh hops have clearly faded but the malt bill base shows that this beer was probably a great one when fresh.

T: Again malt forward which reconfirms to me that this bad boy is past it's prime. Hop presence is there but it is kind of muddled which tends to happen with wet hop beers if they have been sitting to long.

M: The carbonation is spot on with a nice medium body finish. There is a hint of slick oily residue but the overall finish is pretty dry.

O: Overall wet hop (harvest) ales are one of my favorites but even more so than your standard IPA's they must be consumed fresh to enjoy them in all their glory. This one has faded to much for my liking but I will certainly revisit this beer if the chance presents itself in the Fall when the hop presence is still strong...

I am reviewing off of the last pour from the bottle and it is more opaque than the first pours i believe. Nice oily appearance with bubbles of foam around the glass and some lacing left.

Smell of sweet candied hops and some malt. Sweetness being predominant.

Sweet candied fruits and hop bitterness leading into some sweet maltss. There is a lingering bitterness that is different from the initial flavor that im not loving. There is a ton of hop flavor but it doesn't seem as distinctly "fresh-hopped" as others do.

Smooth and slick mouthfeel.

Overall, not as good as i was hoping. As i said above, this seems more like a regular ipa than a fresh hop beer. Also the aftertaste is a bit off putting. The beer starts off with nice fruity hop flavors but turns into an odd sweet/malty bitterness that overpowers the initial pleasant flavors. I would probably try again on-tap but will look elsewhere for my fresh hop fix in the future.

Live tasting bomber courtesy of rmcnealy (THANKS!!) into Duvel tulip.

Appearance; pours a hazy orange/pale amber color with two fingers of bubbly straw colored head. Retention is ok, with the head falling over the course of several minutes. Lacing is good with a sticky foam clinging to the sides of the glass.

Smell; Broodoo opens with mellow pine, hints of honey and notes of citrus. Slight notes of caramel and toffee a well.

Taste; follows the aroma to a t, with a lingering pine bitterness that is quite subtle and not exceptionally bitter. A very well rounded brew, with mellow flavored all around.

Mouthfeel; Broodoo is medium bodied with crisp carbonation that really accents the finish and let's the subte bitterness hang around without being overwhelming.

Overall; a damn fine beer that I think may have been a bit more lively closer to its release, still it has held up quite well, and is much better than some fresh offerings I've had!!

22 oz. bottle split with a friend and poured into a standard pint glass. Review is from notes on my iPod.

A: Pours a golden orange with a finger of light off-white head. Head retention is awesome.. lots of thick lacing! A beautiful, continuous flow of bubbles rushing up throughout this beer catches my eye..

S: Smells just like a hopped-up version of Gumballhead to me.. loaded with lemon and wheat. Has a stronger malt backbone, as well.

T: A strong malty and yeasty taste right off the bat. A small tartness from the lemon and bitterness from the hops. Finishes with a small malt backbone and a more clear hop presence. Great beer.

M: Smooth with hefty carbonation. The bitter finish isn't overpowering and doesn't finish to dry, either.

D: Fairly enjoyable and easy to down.. kinda wish I had kept the whole bomber for myself. haha. The hops and malts are just so well-balanced all the way through.

Had Broo Doo on tap at 3 Floyds on 9/29/2011

I was excited to see how a fresh hopped beer may taste, though I'm not particularly a 'hop head'. I was not disappointed.

The appearance was a clear medium amber with a microfoam head, I didn't get a clear color from the head, probably because I was too excited to try it!

Pineapple and Orange dominated the scent, oddly enough I got none of what I'd consider a 'hoppy' scent from this at all.

The taste! .. Exceptional... Lightly bitter, pineapple/orange citrus. Sweet sweet hops taste - no bitter that I could pick up until it had warmed a bit. Medium body, low carbonation.

Intensely drinkable even for those of us who aren't the biggest hop fans - The bitter peeks out as it warms and this continues to be delightful as it warms! I'm a fan of this and my husband and I will likely pick up a bomber locally to cellar (as oxymoronic as that sounds for a 'fresh hopped' beer, I s'pose!)

Poured from a bomber bottle into a tulip glass

A - Golden with tangerine hues and one and a half fingers of head.

S - Sweet grapefruit, light pine, some passion fruit, orange, lots of citrus, something that smells like Fuggles hops. Very nice and refreshing.

T - Resiny bitterness and citrus which quickly gives way to a malty sweetness, almost honey-like, and then a bit of bitterness on the backend. This doesn't seem like a 7.0% beer. Tasty.

M - Medium. After a few sips I can already feel my saliva getting thicker but it probably won't bother too many other people.

D - One bomber bottle is enough, I think, but this is so tasty I think I could polish off another one.

Overall a really great offering from Three Floyd's. Delicious, great aroma, the only thing that bugs me is the mouthfeel a bit but I think that's more of a personal issue I have with IPAs, APAs, and any other thick, bitter beers. Don't let that stop you from trying it though.

Poured from 22ox. bomber into rounded glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy orange-copper with about a half-finger's worth of head, settled after a mildly vigorous pour. Head is off-white, frothy and bubbly. Streams of carbonation buzz about the exterior of this brew. Only the shadows of my fingers can be perceived through the body of this slightly murky beer. Head recedes to a ring around the glass as the brew fades, leaving behind only the slightest traces of lacing on the glass. 4.75/5

Smell: Fresh, citrusy hops burst out into the nostrils on first whiff of this brew. This is the kind of piney, citrusy friend of ours that we know and love, just fresher than usual. Smell settles fairly swiftly after the pour, though maybe my nostrils are already numbed by even just the aroma of the hops in this concoction. A distinct orange strain remains throughout this fresh hop beer. 4.25/5

Taste: Lush tropical citruses and piney, resiny hops don't as much attack as much as flood over the taste buds. Noah would have to build a second ark to float through this sea of fresh, sticky hops. Yet the flavor and bitterness, although very forward and present, is not anywhere close to overpowering. The bitterness starts off on the almost-heavy side but subsides to a wonderful bouquet of floral hops and a just-right sweet, toasty malt backbone to complement the citrus aromas. Just a bit of dryness, a light lingering bitterness, and a juicy orange flavor brings you back for another sip. Bitterness subdues and blends beautifully with the citrus and sweetness as the beer warms. 4.75/5

Mouthfeel: bitter and sticky from the freshly harvested hops, though not as lip-clinging as other harvest hop ales I've had in recent weeks. A bit creamy and smooth on the way down, especially for a bitter-forward harvest ale. Medium carbonation does not inhibit the drinkability at all. Just a little sticky around the lips. Just right. 5/5

Overall: Another fantastic brew from the boys at FFF. Hop-forward yet not so in your face that you can't have a few of these (though they do come in 22oz.-ers, so I wouldn't recommend more than one in a sitting!). Great balance of slightly dry bitterness and juicy sweet malts to keep the drinking easy and the tongue feeling. Too bad this only shows up in October. 4.75/5

Pours out a real nice yellow in color. Can't see through the beer. Head was a tiny, white, and had little retention.

Smell is muted but seems to be tropical forward. There seems to be some caremal malts in the background that adds sweetness to the nose. Taste is more piny (85%) with a little tropical (15%) as far as the hop bill. There's still a little sweet caremal in the background but it really takes the back seat to the pine.

I'm assuming this must be an older bottle so take from that what you will. It seems the Three Floyds that pops up in Hudson, WI is sometimes older. Given they say October release and I just got this in the store today and its the first time I've seen it, one can only assume it must taste better fresh.

Bought at three cellars in south milwaukee.

Pours a DEEP orange/yellow color. So deep that it really doesn't change through the light. The opposite of clear, whatever that is... perfectly cloudy? AMAZING colour! What is the score above perfect? Looks like fresh hop syrup... incredible.

Smells of fresh hops, mango, grapefruit. This is the smell of the model ipa.

Taste is incredible clean. Amazing IPA. All the juicy hop greatness you want, with none of the off flavors put off by various other IPAs. Great stuff. Could drink multiple bottle of this, even considering it comes in bombers.

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.

Tons of sediment in the bottom of a bomber. Split this one with a friend. Sweet bubblegum smell when poured in a glass. Started off mostly bitter with a slightly citrus, slightly sweet taste. Gets better as it warms, citrus taste really comes out and the unappealing bitterness fades. Not a bad beer overall, but there was a heavy spicyness that felt like I was drinking a shot of pepper with my beer. Very offputting.

Three Floyds Broo Doo pours an deep orange color with about a finger of head. It smells of citrus, grassy hops, but not as intense as I thought it would be. The taste are mouthfeel are really good. A thicker body adds to the sweetness of the malt with nice bitterness to balance it all out. Overall another winner from FFF.
