BEER INFO

Brewed by:
3 Floyds Brewing Co.
Indiana, United States
3floyds.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

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.

Modest finger deep head, the bubbles are large and loose so there is swift evaporation, just off-white color, the lacing is fat yet without strong stickiness. Warmly opaque liquid, full orange color that is not quite amber, plenty of yellow around the rims and glass bottom, sizable amount of larger bubbles spread throughout. Wet pine needles, on the dank side, lots of herbal and earthy matter, some cocoa and caramel but a surprising lack of citrus scents as well as muddled pineapple, peach, mango fruit, as a result hits your nostrils like a blunt object. Full-bodied, the carbonation gives it some lift and separation during the mouth entry but it quickly becomes like getting stuck in a beanbag chair. Honey, molasses and caramel add flavor more than actual sweetness. The orange, pink grapefruit citrus gains breadth in the mid-palate and helps the pineapple, apricot, peach fruit get some spring in its step. The grassiness and toasted bread crusts lends bite and a slightly more erect posture at the end, peppery too. Still, more resinous than drying or bitter with a malty, buttery blanket to tuck you in. The heaviness fatigues the palate.

A - Light Gold
S - Fruits/Bread
T - Fruit/Bread with a fairly strong hop overtones.
M - Light & crisp in the mouth.
O - Certainly has that signature FFF taste, but seems a little more raw and less refined than some of their similar offerings.
