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

This celebration of the hop harvest has intense tropical fruit, citrus and spicy accents that showcase the complexity of the hops we all love.

Had this on 2012-11-09 in Danville, KY

A - Pretty clear orange with a 2-finger off-white head that fades quickly and leaves just a little lacing.

S - Lovely. TONS of fragrant pine, very dank, very floral, and some citrus. A big, appealing aroma for sure.

T - Again, plenty of pine, which I quite like. Followed by some moderately sweet and lightly roasted malt, orange flesh then orange zest. The sweet flesh and increasingly bitter zest linger long into the finish, where a bit of alcohol makes an appearance. There's also a nice, spicy hop bud/vegetal flavor impregnating the whole experience.

M - Medium body and carbonation yield a substantial feel. It's resinous and fairly prickly. Definitely a feel I like in an IPA.

O - It knocks you over the head more than some wet hopped IPAs but sometimes I like out-of-balance, wake-up-your-taste-buds-in-a-big-way experience. Not as perfect as Zombie Dust but certainly equal to highly-ranked peers in the wet hop IPAs.

bomber poured into my FFF teku glass.

a - pours amber in color with a pinky or so of coarse, cream colored head. after calming i get a thin film and thick chunks of lacing in the glass.

s - strawberry, tangerine, raspberry, grass, toasted bread. smells like beer candy!

t - bready with a resinous, piney slap to the back of the tongue. has notes of grapefruit, herbs, and a subdued honey like sweetness, but sadly, none of the awesomeness found in the nose. finishes very dry.

m - medium in body with adequate carbonation. co2 profile is a little on the coarse side though.

o - a solid beer and quite enjoyable, but the nose got my hopes up just before the taste smacked them back down. gives other fresh hop ales a run for their money, but i think i prefer founder's harvest ale over this. worth seeking out though.

22oz bottle thanks to thebigredone. Poured into FFF pint glass. Weird label for a beer, but I don't judge a beer by it's label.

A- Pours a nice slightly brown yellowish golden with about a finger's worth of frothy white head. Nice carbonation of consistently rising small bubbles.

S- Very fresh greeny hops dominate the aroma profile mixed with some pine, floral accents, and light caramel malts lurking in the background. A little bit above average aroma strength.

T- Again greeny hops that have a little bit of a pine taste balanced nicely with light caramel/toffee malts. Finishes with a light bitterness and even more greeny hops that linger as an aftertaste for awhile.

M- Very smooth and drinkable, nice carbonation, goes down very easily.

O- This was a fantastic wet hop and one of my favorite beers from Three Floyds. This is exactly what a wet hop should taste like. Very fresh green hops like they were just picked, very nice aroma, awesome taste, and very easy to drink. If you like very fresh greeny hops then I highly recommend this beer.

22oz. Bomber poured into a tulip

Three Floyds Broo Doo pours an deep orange color with about a finger of head. It smells of citrus, grassy hops, but not as intense as I thought it would be. The taste are mouthfeel are really good. A thicker body adds to the sweetness of the malt with nice bitterness to balance it all out. Overall another winner from FFF.

First had: part of a Nov. '12 bottle share.
Thanks to Ray (baybum) for bringing this one out!

Poured an amber-peach color, fairly effervescent, with a fizzy white head; just a bit of retention and lacing. Nice fresh hops in the nose, citrus and pineapple. Taste was dominated by fresh juicy hops, orange, grapefruit, pineapple, fresh-cut grass, and a solid bready malt base in the background for just the right amount of sweetness to take the edge off of the hop bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation. This was a well-done IPA indeed; not amazing, but just overall solid and drinkable. I'd definitely go back for it again.

Served from a bomber into a Three Floyd's Teku glass

This is my second "wet hop" beer in two nights, and I love this style. Definitely has a juicy taste. I can taste some citrus hops and very smooth creamy feel to it. I like this beer. I will admit, I'm kind of a Three Floyd's homer, but this beer is fantastic. I'd buy this again.
