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.

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

Pours a slightly hazy bright orange with bright white head. Left its mark down my glass.

Very inviting aroma of pineapple and grapefruit with some dank pine sap.

Juicy pineapple, grapefruit and orange peal dominate the taste with some dank hops. Keith Sweat... Wet!

Medium body with moderate carbonation. This bomber is disappearing REAL quick. Very easy drinking

Overall, a fantastic harvest ale. Wet, dank, juicy and very easy drinking. Fantastic

22oz bomber poured into a snifter.

A- Pours a cloudy orange color with a half finger of a white colored head. The head dissipates slowly.

S- A real nice smelling IPA. Lots of citrus and floral notes on the aroma. Grapefruit, orange and mango are most notable in the smell.

T- Starts off bitter, with piney hops shining through in the taste more than any. Some citrus is there as well though. Finishes with some sweet malts.

M- Medium bodied, bitter and hoppy with a dry finish.

One of the better wet-hopped IPAs I've had this season.

Thanks to Pmoney for this one

App- I liked this color. It was almost a pure orange and when you look at it, it was almost a clear peach like color in the center. A small 1/2" head that faded pretty quickly and only had a couple dots of cling on the side of the glass.

Smell- It was fairly sweet on the nose, with a bit of werthers original candy and then went into a good hoppy note with some cream and a bit of a paired earthy grass note. Overall, a nicer aromatic beer that didnt go overboard with a giant hop kick or a malt bomb.

Taste- Its a very nice IPA. Its one of the better wet hop beers that I have had. It took away some of that large caramel bite that some have and instead tamed down the earthiness and went with a more citrus, sweet and creamy hop flavor. A good amount of balance to it and fairly hidden 7% makes it quite enjoyable.

Mouth- A pretty solid medium body with a good medium creamy carbonation on the back. The finish is the creamy hops and a tinge of residual booze.

Drink- I thought it was good. As I said the flavors work well together but dont really compete all that much with eachother. The more I drank the creamier it became and then finsished it rather quickly. I would say as I did before. Best wet hop I've had.
