I got this bomber as one of many beers from Gcurlow in the Secret Santa BIF. Thanks Grant.

Broodoo has a hazy, golden-orange body with a soapy off-white head that doesn't have the greatest retention, but leaves some pretty good sheets of lacing.

The nose has a distinctive, juicy hop aroma with grapefruit and pineapple coming out, with a good biscuit aroma from the malt in the background.

A little bit of biscuit flavored malt comes through, but that is followed by a ton of hops. There is a bit of bitterness, but not too much. A bunch of grapefruit and a bit of pineapple. The slight biscuit flavor pops up again toward the finish. Overall, this is a pretty good American IPA.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly creamy, with just a touch of an oily feel toward the back end.

Broodoo has some pretty solid drinkability; a pretty good IPA for sure.

Odd color almost pink. Nice head large in nature with sticky sticky lace that lasts forever.

Awesome hop character in the nose. Very floral with juicy citrus notes. Grapefruit, apple, starfruit, rose petal with a light malty affair.

Great flavor light in body yet full in flavor and mouthfeel. Very floral with other citrusy notes. Bready malts balance things nicely. Good carbonation keep things fresh and tingly on the tongue. A IPA I could drink for hours on end.

got this one from OHLRangers as part of secret santa '09. thanks ed!

22oz bottle. sampled feb 6/2010.

pours deep orangey amber with just a touch of haze. the thick dense cream coloured head drops very slowly and leaves a thick layer of lace as it falls. and i gotta say, FFF labels are usually cool, but i especially enjoy the wacky treasure troll on this one.

aroma is great. rich caramel and toffee. multi-grain bread. biscuit and cracker. touch of grain. grapefruit and a bit of resiny pine. orange and tangerine. all that combines together and reminds me of a lightly aged american barleywine - well integrated, slightly mellowed, but still entirely delicious. bit of alcohol.

taste is good. most of the players from the aroma are here. caramel and toffee. multi-grain bread and biscuit. touch of cracker. light grapefruit and slightly resiny pine. orange and tangerine. bit of alcohol. it still reminds me of an aged american barleywine in the way that it's meshed together, but it's definitely lighter as i'd expect from an ipa. it's interesting, the slightly mellow and meshed aspect in an ipa, yet it doesn't seem to have diminished at all.

mouthfeel is great. just over medium body. slightly below medium carbonation level.

drinkability is great. the depth and complexity is great, and i can appreciate that it's excellently balanced without seeming to have lost anything. it's not the typical biting in-your-face hop character that i usually expect from three floyds, but still bold and dominant in other areas. great stuff. i'll definitely be looking for more of this one!

Nothing like a fresh harvest-hopped ale at the start of the season; luckily, that’s what the next beer in my Three Floyd’s monthly beer quest is. I’m glad I got it on the first of the month, too – it’s good to know that a beer this hoppy just came out of the brewery less than a month ago. Plus, the label's pretty awesome: troll dolls, unicorns, and rainbows. Gotta love it.

A: Ok, maybe it’s the kid-friendly label, but I’m getting a gummy bear color from this pour (orange Haribo, to be exact). Nice shine, anyway. The head is silky smooth, nearly white, with a filmy retention that never leaves. Smooth lacing all around, and we’re looking good.

S: Ah, those hops; those flowery, potent hops. On a bed of explosive pine, superbly juicy fruits and pungent flowers sock the palate, almost bringing a tear to my eye. It’s earthy, sweet, and crisp – what more could you ask for? Even the malts, which are definitely not the stars of this show, are a rich caramel treat. I can feel my mouth watering as a peppery spice finishes this one out. Just great!

T: Smooth, clean taste, though not as good as the nose would lead me to believe. The malts aren’t very sweet or thick, shuffling across the palate without much of an impression besides some dim grains. The hops provide a smooth bitter taste, but they fall flat for being so fresh. And, like little crystals of dryness that just dissolve on your tongue, the aftertaste pops out from the hops and decreases exponentially as time goes on. I like the taste, I really do – I was just expecting more from this brew.

M: This is an odd one – it feels flat on the first sip, but froths up as you hold it in your mouth. It’s a decent feel for a brew like this, but nothing more.

O: Very drinkable, but definitely not my favorite IPA. In the nose, it’s a smash hit, but it’s only a little above-average when it comes to the ever-important category of taste. If this has done one thing for me, though, it’s made me excited for the new season and all the harvest ales that are bound to come out. To hops!

Bomber via trade thanks to dug.

Pours clear golden-amber with a medium-sized white head that lasts and good lacing.

Sweet aroma, with honey and pale malt along with citrusy hops and tropical fruit notes.

Nice flavor, although the hops are a little less prominent than I expected. Hop character is mainly citrusy with orange and pineapple. Lots of honey malt sweetness.

Mouthfeel is pretty standard for an IPA. Medium body and carbonation, some hop oils.

This is pretty good, but it's one of the few FFF offerings I've had where I wasn't THAT impressed. Drinkable at least.

Incredible purity and vibrancy in the nose, pure hop glory. Notes of herbs and weeds, but also has some nice citrus and fruit notes as well. Trying to pick up malt elements iin the flavor is tough, with only light notes of biscuit. Flavor is dominated by juicy, resinous, fresh hops. No brewery makes a hoppy beer like 3 Floyds. They utilize hops so well. Possibly the best fresh hop beer.
