Indiana, United States

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.

Drunk on 10-8-16 from bomber dated 9-28-16. Fresh stuff! I think Broo Doo is best enjoyed with a background of other 3F hoppy ales in mind. What 3F does better than any other brewery, IMHO, is create a lot of such ales but still establish excellent contrast between them. Broo Doo is easily distinguished from its brethren. It has a crisp, light look that aptly telegraphs the crisp, light body. Very drinkable. The hop profile is green 'n' mean with a bracing bitterness that sneaks up on you on the finish. 3F avoids the temptation of over-hopping this; it's just the right amount. Further, the hops have that unified-yet-complex feel that is characteristic of so many 3F beers. Malt is light but amply present. This brew is a real treat and something to look forward to in early fall. A favorite harvest ale.

Enjoyed on tap at 3 Floyds. Purchased bombers to go.
I did expect it to be a bit more "juicy" than it was. However, very easy drinking ale

Had on tap at 3 floyds. Pours the color of apricots with flecks of golden sunshine. Had a 2 finger head that left great lacing on the glass. The fresh hops were right there in smell and taste. Exceptionally well balanced. Would drink this daily if I could.
