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 a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains well before eventually becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind on the glass.

S- Very sweet hop aroma that carries with it notes of Skittles (no kidding), lemon zest and orange citrus. Just great. Sugary but you can tell it's all the hops at work.

T- Doesn't taste as good as the aroma smells but what's there is a nicely balanced hop-to-malt ratio. Bitterness is mild and so is the malt backbone. Alcohol is very well masked.

M- Slightly sharp from the hops. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Nothing too amazing here except for that beautiful aroma. I guess the dry hopping had a lot to do with that since the same character isn't seen in the flavor.

A - pours a very hazy coper orange with almost a hint of peach color. Finger of near white dense head. Lacing and especially retention are fantastic.

S - lots of sweet and citrus fruits, mango, grapefruit, peach and pear type aromas. 95% citrus sweetness, 5% caramel malt type aromas.

T - lots of sweet fruits which balance amazingly with the bitter hoppyness. More on the sweet side (with the aformentiomed fruits) but finish and aftertaste have a nice almost resinous bitterness.

M - ideal. Medium bodied with decent carbonation somewhat smooth and very very drinkable.

O - lots of sweet fruits, more on that side rather than bitter although a great combination of both qualities.

22 oz bottle courtesy of fthomasl's dad pours a lightly hazed gold color with an ample off white head. Nice retention and lace.

Nose is tropical as fuck...juicy and grapefruit galore. Hops are just a melange of wet grass -> citrus -> tropical -> pine. Wet, juicy fruit deliciousness

Taste is bubblegum, tropical fruit, juicy fruit gum...wow, just an amazing mix of light malt and hop flavors. Wow...a truly revolutionary brew. Love it.
