Notes: 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.

Bottled 9/9/2022. The first thing that comes to mind is "IPA flavored". This is solid all around from start to finish. There is nothing special, to me, that marks this brew but if I saw this available on tap I'd be thrilled.
Medium to thick bodied on the palate. Sticky hop bitterness with a mix of pine and citrus. If you know you don't like IPAs then this will not change your mind. But! If you know you like the style then this is one to throw into the mix of options. I generally prefer a lighter flavor and mouthfeel but I do like this beer.

12oz bottle. Etched on bottle neck is 'BOTTLED 09-09-22'. Seasonal 2022 release. Notes on label: "BrooDoo Harvest Ale is a seasonal ale that glorifies American hops. BrooDoo is brewed using fresh green "wet" hops picked right from the vine and put into our beer vats, from vine to brew house in one day! Enjoy!".
Slightly cloudy, pale gold colored body. One finger of creamy white head. Partial sheet of lacing on non-drinking side of the glass.
Aroma is resin hops, citrus and pine.
Taste follows the nose, and presents as a good malt base flavored with grapefruit and pineapple, with a good undercurrent of pine. Long lasting hop dominated aftertaste.
Medium plus mouth feel. Crisp and sticky. Very good carbonation.
Presents as a top notch fresh hops brew.

6 oz mini-snifter draft pour at Lures Bar & Grille. This is an excellent wet hop IPA, with aromas and flavors of citrus and pine atop a caramel malt base. The 7% abv is well-hidden. Next time I will definitely need to get a full pour/bottle of this beer.

This was good but....sigh...again I'm just not that impressed with their hoppy stuff at all. This once again just tastes like any 3 Floyd's IPA. not any super noticeable nuances.

Bottled 9/28/21

It’s always a treat to find a new-to-me 3 Floyds beer at my local. They’ve been slowly creeping up since they started distributing to Mass last year. This is their annual wet hop IPA, a perfect time of year for it. Let’s pop this baby open

Pours a cloudy orange gold with 3 fingers of creamy off white head that slowly fades to a cap and leaves nice rings of lacing

The hops in here are so vibrant, but the balance of them against the bigger malt bill is really nice. I’m picking up on aromas of ruby grapefruit, brown bread, caramel, piney hops, white pepper, and orange rind

The same balance exists in taste, but it slightly favors the intense hops. On the front end of the sip I’m tasting resinous hops, white pepper, bready malt, orange zest, and light toffee. The swallow brings notes of pithy grapefruit, dank weed, piney hops, pepper, toasted brown bread, and orange zest

A medium body pairs with gentle prickly carbonation, resulting in a crisp and sharp beer. Finishes dry with a firm bitterness

This is a damn good beer. Just what I needed for this type of night. It holds its weight against the other wet hopped beers though skews more towards the hoppy side of things than the others

Poured from a bottle at fridge temp. Pours a nice murky orange, but not hazy. Just opaque. Minimal white head.

Nose: Overall, the nose was fairly "light". Oranges, pine, tropical fruit, and grapefruit peel. Very refreshing and crisp.

Taste: Wow - much more flavor on the taste than predicted from the nose. A nice resin bite hits upfront. This is quickly followed by grapefruit peel, vanilla, pineapple, and bitter hop notes. Hoppy, but smooth. Easy drinking! Refreshing.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Overall, a fantastic IPA. I'm very happy to have tried it!

Bottle received from @fbarber in the NBS BIF #14. Poured into a pint glass. It pours a hazy, bright golden apricot color with 2 fingers of creamy, egg white cap and extensive, thick lacing. A fragrant nose featuring lemon peel, grapefruit, pine needles, and a whiff of tangerine. There's also a strong smell of malt in the background. The taste opens with strong hoppy bitterness and resinous pine. In the background there is tart lemon and grapefruit and a hint of sweeter orange. The toffee malt adds depth and some additional sweetness as the ale warms in the glass. It has a great mouth feel: moderately thick and creamy with fairly lively carbonation. And at 7% ABV it's an easy drinker. I'm so happy to have tried this. While we get 3 Floyds distro in New Jersey, it's limited to the year-round offerings and often they aren't fresh. I've had much better 3 Floyds success with BIFS and trades.

Three Floyds is newly distributed to MI so I gladly snagged a sixer of this, especially since there seems to be wet hopped ales lacking in my area. No date seen but assumed fresh (duh).
Poured into a tulip glass. Looks deep golden yellow, bone white head and awesome sticky lacing on the entire glass as the beer goes down.
Orange and citrus aromas, peel, pith and flesh. Pine needles round it out.
Taste is similar. Oranges, grapefruit and lemon zest, floral notes too. Light caramel detected but this is all hops. Big sticky and thick feel. Astringent and building finish.
For as long as this one’s been around my first go at it was impressive. I had three in a row because it was so tasty! This feels and tastes like a classic, old school IPA. Well done and surely a beer I’ll look forward to every year.
