Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Snorkel glass.
Bottled 09-28-16.

Appearance: Clear, filtered light orange body, with a 1/2 finger's worth of head, from a semi-aggressive pour. Head has a soft pillowy look to it. Tons of lacing!

Aroma: Plenty of citrus: orange and grapefruit. Pineapple. Some soft pine needles.

Taste: This has a lot going on. Grapefruit and pine, some papaya sweetness and some pineapple, without the acidity. All the flavors are soft and compliment each other without one dominating more than the other.

Mouthfeel: Full mouthfeel without being abrasive. A nice amount of carbonation.

Overall: A truly awesome beer, but coming from 3 Floyd's there was no doubt about that! Love these wet hop ales! They can be so complex and yet simple at the same time. This is one of those delicious beers that you don't want to end or the bottle to stop flowing.

Huge thanks to Hopgoddess312 for this one!

Big Thanks to Hopgodess312 for this 3F beauty.
Pours sunburnt orange in hue. Puffy white head leaps upward, and settles to a finger or so. Nice, sticky lacing.
Smell is sweet citrus at first with a hint of sweet acidic pineapple. A bit of pine sap comes through as well.
taste is much more complex. The cities comes through more specifically as tangerine, the tropical notes are pineapple meets mango. But then a nice peach comes in as well. Juicy, wet, spot on ripe peach. Then a bit of green vegetal. And again a hint of pine going in the direction of dank. The malt comes through lite and sweet. Nothing is over the top.
Mouthfeel is full enough, finishes between creamy and slick.
A very well-rounded "wet" harvest IPA.

22 oz bottle poured into pint glass bottled on 9/28

A: Huge head soapy small bubbled and White. Body is a slightly hazy burnt orange and amber.

S: lots of pine, aggressive spiciness almost a little Italian seasoning. smells like vines that are new.

T: Very nice soft pine, vine tastes, a touch of fruit, resin

M: Medium to slightly fuller beer is a touch creamy on the finish.

O: Excellent Harvest ale. That spicy Italian seasoning smell is different. Has a nicely aggressive green taste to it very good beer.

Deep yellow to amber in color, mostly clear. Ample off white head with very good retention. A pleasant but not overpowering aroma. Floral, grassy, spicy, faint tropical fruit notes. Nice malt character as well. Taste follows exactly, floral, grassy, spicy. Floral notes linger, along with some moderate bitterness. Medium-light body, moderate carbonation. Very nice fresh hop IPA from FFF.

Pours a nice yellow with minimal white head. The nose belies danker hops than the palate actually affords. The palate is more pine-dominated than the nose would lead one to believe. A nice med-light mouthfeel accompanies a decidedly solid nose and palate. Overall, a strong offering, if not quite on par with the other exceptional fresh-hop beers to be had out there (here's looking at you Founder's Harvest). Worth trying, an enjoyable drink, but not one that justifies bomber pricing.

Drunk on 10-8-16 from bomber dated 9-28-16. Fresh stuff! I think Broo Doo is best enjoyed with a background of other 3F hoppy ales in mind. What 3F does better than any other brewery, IMHO, is create a lot of such ales but still establish excellent contrast between them. Broo Doo is easily distinguished from its brethren. It has a crisp, light look that aptly telegraphs the crisp, light body. Very drinkable. The hop profile is green 'n' mean with a bracing bitterness that sneaks up on you on the finish. 3F avoids the temptation of over-hopping this; it's just the right amount. Further, the hops have that unified-yet-complex feel that is characteristic of so many 3F beers. Malt is light but amply present. This brew is a real treat and something to look forward to in early fall. A favorite harvest ale.

Enjoyed on tap at 3 Floyds. Purchased bombers to go.
I did expect it to be a bit more "juicy" than it was. However, very easy drinking ale

Had on tap at 3 floyds. Pours the color of apricots with flecks of golden sunshine. Had a 2 finger head that left great lacing on the glass. The fresh hops were right there in smell and taste. Exceptionally well balanced. Would drink this daily if I could.
