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.

poured into Boltcutter tulip.

reviewed from notes taken on 11/30/2012.

Appearance: golden bodied beer with 2 fingers of white head. Lacing is nice and thick coating the glass.

Smell: Pine and grapefruit. Cracker and bready malts. Citrus and tropical fruits. Fresh juicy smelling hops!

Taste: moderate bitterness. Pine, grapefruits, and orange peel. Fresh and clean tasting hops. Its almost polarizing to me because I almost feel like all 3 Floyds hoppy beers have the same hop profiles except the zombie dust that is...

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Any really good hoppy beer by 3 Floyds. Nothing that standouts out to me as special, but a really solid wet hop ale. I will take a 4pk Founders Harvest Ale any day because it tastes better and has a way better price point and you get twice a much beer for half the cost.

Review taken from notes- exactly 3 weeks ago.

1 pint 6 oz brown bomber style bottle. FFF label consists of artwork with a crazy looking troll with hops for hair. A princess and unicorn set off a rainbow background that's nothing but FFF in style. Poured into a nonic style pint glass.

A - hazy golden orange in color. Excellent frothy head that's a shade of white. Leaves the glass with a thick sticky ring of lace throughout the experience.

S - fantastic wet hop resin. Mostly citrus with big hits of floral and pine. A fairly oily hop aroma with a good malt backbone. Whiffs of orange, grapefruit, mango, grassy pine, and light pineapple with hints of sweet caramel.

T - big fresh hop flavor that starts out with a light floral flavor. Big bursts of citrus and pine resin quickly follow. Notes of grapefruit, lemon, pine resin, orange peel, and a variety of tropical fruits. Some pale malt with a touch of caramel sweetness balance the flavor in a class manner. Finish has a crisp bitterness with hits of spice.

M - smooth medium body that's thickness allows for a creamy and easy mouthfeel.

O - one of the best harvest ales using the wet hop technique I've ever experienced. Scratch that.. It may just be the best I've experienced. It's really a top shelf ipa and has all the class to leave you thirsting for more. I dont think FFF can do hops wrong and im to the point of claiming they dont do anything wrong .It falls in very well with a great lineup of hoppy brews from a great brewery. It's something I'll enjoy every year around this time.

22 oz. bottle served in a DHF signature glass.

A: Pours a semi hazy apricot color with a thick and frothy white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thick collar that leaves a ton of soapy lace down the glass.

S: Floral and piney, there is a nice underlying tropical fruit smells as well. The hoppy scents rest on a toffee and oaty malt backbone.

T: Bitter pine up front and throughout. Huge initial burst of resinous hops, there is some light floral notes and a kiss of citrus. Light grapefruit and a ton of sweet oat malt on the finish.

M: Medium bodied with a sticky mouthfeel. Nice medium-high carbonation level and sweet/oily hop finish.

O: Much more resinous and bitter than the nose would suggest. Overall it's a nice wet hop/harvest ale, but I'd pick up a Founders Harvest Ale any day.

Another big thanks to Pat for the bottle....

A- pours a hazy golden orange... huge froathy white head... dissolves leaving a symphony of white lace to the glass

S- big whiffs of tropical gum ball come to mind.. apricot, mango, pineapple slurry... grassy earthiness, sweet caramel as the back drop

T- light pine sap, sweet bitter tropical fruits.. sweet caramel, toasted toffee highlights

M- smoothy and creamy... prickly carbonation... dreaming creamy bitterness lingering...tropical fruits dancing on the tongue

O- its three Floyd's... turn up some metal... and drink... its an experience ....live it
