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.

Take this review with a grain of salt (or hops - lolz, damn, Raul, you slay), because this is wet hop beer and that season was like months ago (there is no bottle date).

Anyway, let’s get down to the nitty gritty.

All things wet. All things wet… (get your mind out of the gutter, my children). Yes. Ester Williams, that Phelps dude when he isn’t taking bong rips, Kelly Slater in a barrel… All said, the beer is still good and you should be too (good to your mama at least).

Ok, let’s go.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear orange-golden amber color with a small white head of foam. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time and leaving a bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is big of a bready and malty smell mixed with some squash like aromas and some light harvest fruits of apple and pear. Along with these smells comes a musty grassy and herbal smells, as well as some notes of pine and dirt.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and slightly grainy flavor that is paired with a touch of caramel sweetness. There is a big fresh hop taste upfront, being very green in nature with a sizable taste of pine, earth, and herb. As the taste advances the fresh hop gets even stronger, while the caramel sweetness fades a touch. Toward the end, the bready increases, and with a touch of mustiness and some hints of orange and pear, one is left with a nicely hoped harvest ale like flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body is medium in thickness and chewiness with a rather average carbonation level. Good for the style and the tastes, balancing well support of the flavors and a more easy drinking nature.
Overall – A nicely hopped up harvest ale. Quit tasty.

12oz bottle poured into a SA perfect pint glass

A- pours deep amber with a two-finger foamy and pillowy white head that retains forever

S- smells of resinous pine, zesty citrus peel & floral hops, with some malty biscuit undertones

T- bright and zest orange peel up front is quickly complimented by some resinous pine. Mid-palate brings out some doughy sweet malt before giving way to a blast of floral hops. The finish gives notes of orange marmalade and pine

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that turns creamy into a smooth finish

O- solid example of a classic west coast ipa, bright and well balanced

Undated bottle. Perhaps bottled 9/1/23 per other reviews and instagram.

L: Pours a dark orange that is less than clear. Short but stubborn white head. Very pretty splotchy lacing.

S: Muted aromas of sweet caramel malt. Typical fresh hop aroma is absent.

T: Malty sweetness up front. The hops appear in the middle. Finishes dry and bitter.

F: Medium mouthfeel and carbonation.

O: Gets better during the sip, going from sweet malt to bitter hops. The beginning is unwelcome, the middle is encouraging, and the end is nice. Perhaps an unfair comparison, but the fresh hop character - in both aroma and taste - is nowhere near Washington and Oregon fresh hops IPAs. The lacing is terrific, though.

On tap:
Mid amber and pretty clear after the chill haze subsided. Lacing is ok, but the recuperation ability of the head is more impressive. Nose is the sweeter side of floral citrus with a spicy sensation thrown in. Inhaling more deeply, an earthy to piney aroma squeezes in. First sip showed the qualities of a mid-2010 IPA with a medium plus malt backbone that avoids sweetness and a piney bitterness. After a few sips to adjust, I get more of the citrus that the nose exhibited, mixed nicely with the green pine from the first sips. Finishes pretty dry and bitter - in I way I appreciate.

Bottled 9/1/23; drank 9/24/23 @ the Yarchives.

See-through dull orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice off-white head; a thick curtain of tree-rung lacing remained.

Fresh pine orange citrus & faint orange peel notes in the nose.

Medium thin mouthfeel. Strong pine, weed resin, mild caramel & orange peel flavors.

Too resinous & pine-y for this timid soul...but wet hop apologists are sure to love it.

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.
