This beer is brewed during the hop harvest with a portion of unkilned or “wet” hops fresh off the vine.

Thanks to Tattorso for including this in a trade!

Pours copper/amber with an off-white head that descends to a very thin layer. Some trailing lace slides down the glass.

The smell is of grapefruit, perfumy pine, pineapple, tangerine, mango, peach - very fruity, with a spiciness and a hint of caramel. Not necessarily powerful, but very nice. Complex in its tropical fruitiness.

The taste is of citric/grapefruit and tropical fruitiness - mango/pineapple. Spicy with a caramel backing. Finishes fruity and dry.

The feel is effervescent with a creamy medium body.

"Wet hopped" and well hopped, though certainly balanced.. Very smooth with a pleasant aftertaste. A very enjoyable brew.

Three Floyds BrooDoo Harvest Ale. "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 brewhouse in one day! BrooDoo also uses the best American malt money can buy. Enjoy!"

What do troll dolls in sailor suits, princesses, unicorns and rainbows have to do with a Three Floyds Harvest Ale? Perhaps it's best not to ask.

Slightly hazy, golden hued, slim, off-white head.

Aroma, grassy hops, citric hops, tropical hops, hoppy hops. Bright, bitter, and lovely.

Taste: All that and more on board the palate. Fresh, bitter, fruity, and juicy. Medium bodied, long, bitter finish. Just enough malt to hold the balance, but plenty of room for the fresh hops to shine. A touch of sweetness creeps out, but pithy, citric, little bit o'piney bitter hops hold center stage.

I like this one, but I'm thinking I had this bottle too late in the game, for it seems the freshness should have been more forward, more pronounced. Still good, still delicious, however, it feels a touch faded, if only from 3 to 4 months time.

A- Cloudy light orange on top on an inch tall white head. Average lacing.

S- Citrus front and center. Might be my favorite part of this one.

T- Grapefruit. Piney hops, caramel malts. Deliciously drinkable.

M- Slightly thin it seems. Carbonation isn't as noticeable as I feel it should be...but what do I know?

D/O- This drinks awesome. Not too bitter, not too sweet. Putting down a bomber of this would be child's play. Thanks to PTMcB for sharing!

Was accidentally served this instead of Surly Wet - guess that makes it the ultimate blind test. Served in a pint glass.

A - Underwhelming look. Small amount of foam with some light haze and a thing ring. Hazy orange color. Nothing special here.

S - Served a little too cold, but with plenty of citrus and tropical fruit hops, some light pine and lemony bitterness, and well-balanced caramel malt.

T - Taste has lots of grapefruit and piney hops, with a good healthy doughy backbone. The residual bitterness is quite light. Well-hidden ABV. This is a beer where I'd totally give it a 4.25 if I could.

M - The texture is even better on-tap, with a great enamel-melting dry finish, some oiliness, medium viscosity, and moderate-low carbonation.

D - An easy-drinking, well-balanced East Coast style IPA. The bitterness is just right for my liking.

This beer pours a apricot orange in color with a very light off white head. It's moderately cloudy for an IPA/Harvest ale. It smells excellent. There are very bitter hops upfront followed by a whole lot of citrus. I'm detect orange, grapefruit, and lemons. It also has a nice and sweet malty backbone. The flavor is definitely of bitter hops. The malty sweetness follows but it isn't nearly as strong as in the nose. A good amount of alcohol finishes off the taste, which is surprising for only being 7.5%. It drinks pretty crisp and the carbonation attacks your taste buds. It gives me cotton mouth. It's pretty drinkable but it's nothing too special as far as Harvest ales are concerned.
