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.

Pours dark gold with orange tints. Aroma, pop of citrus hops. Some orange and mango. A bit of pine. Taste- has a bit of mint on the front. Also kind of a little clover you'd pick from the yard and eat as a kid. Little more of those citrus flavors. Some bitterness in the end here. Doesn't linger. Finishes a bit sweet. Overall, fresh, and you can almost taste the whole cone. It has a warming quality to it. showed the harvest off well. (Born Yesterday was better though NYD)

On tap at Stone Tap in Hudson, Wisconsin. 12 oz. pour in a shaker glass.

Appearance: Color is a bright amber orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and a solid finger of off white head which settles into a thin creamy patch.

Smell: A juicy and earthy hop forward aroma with a scent of citrus fruit and pine. Big citrus hop scent of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, tangerine, passion fruit, mango, and pineapple. Earthy and floral hop scent of pine resin and grass. Malt hints of caramel and cracker along with yeast. A very good juicy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a very juicy and earthy hop driven taste with notes of citrus fruit and pine. Upfront citrus hop notes of orange peel, grapefruit, mango, lemon, tangerine, and passion fruit along with some pineapple. Earthy hop notes of pine resin and grass. Background malt notes of caramel, cracker, and grains with some yeast. A great juicy taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Juicy, oily, and drying.

Overall: A great Fresh Hop IPA. Big citrus fruit and pine hop flavor.

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!
