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.

22oz bottle dated 9/23/15 poured into a pint glass
A: Orange color with a solid one-finger head
S: Plenty of fresh hop notes - citrus, stone fruit, tropical fruit with malt underneath
T: Also quite fresh with citrus but more resin than the other fruits seen in the nose. Adds a bit of earth while keeping that malt backbone
M: Medium-bodied, bitter/a bit oily
O: Tasty, screams fall & fresh

A- An ever so slightly hazy copper liquid with a nice off white head. There is pretty good retention.

S- Some citrus, fruit including apricot, caramel, soap, and a huge load of flowers. Very aromatic and fragrant.

T- Very strange... for as potent as this smells, it is not nearly as flavorful as you would think. It is slightly bitter and very very clean. There is no depth to the flavor... not that it is a problem, just very strange.

M- Very smooth and clean. The cleanest beer I have ever had actually.

D- A surprisingly drinkable beer. It looks meaty, smells meaty, but drinks easy. Very strange and tasty. Worth a try for sure.

First time I've seen Broo Doo this year, so it must be relatively fresh, pending distributors being bad at their jobs or year old Broo Doo shenanigans. If there was a bottle date, of course, this wouldn't be a problem. Pours a light orangey apple juice color with a nice big cap of off-white head. The nose is piney and fruity hops and smells really nice. The taste is really interesting. It has the bite of a pale ale moreso than an IPA, but the hoppiness is really interesting. Floral and a bit fruity and piney. Very nice. Bitterness lingers a bit and ends a touch harshly, but in general, this is a really nice tasting beer. The malt hangs way in the background, though this beer isn't really dry either. The mouthfeel is balanced and with appropriate carbonation. The 7% is a bit of a surprise. Overall, this beer is an interesting, pale ale-like execution of the style that I would definitely have again. Be weary though, in my experience, fresh hop IPAs fall off much faster than their dried hop counterparts.

Pours a nice mid-copper color with great initial head and some decent lacing. Very strong hoppy scent, extremely bitter in the nose, but with a nice malt backing to keep it from being hop water; aroma like it's been extra hopped during fermentation; mostly citrus aroma with a slight pine undertone. Nice deep malty flavor, very citrusy with some nice floral hints, and with more pine tastes as it warms up; a good deep malt to go with it, slight hints of caramal. Goes down fine, with just a bit of roughness from all the hops. Great pale ale, a bomber isn't too much for one person with this brew.

Moderate golden color. Heavy sized head on first pour. Ok aroma-basically grassy hops with a piney/resin scent. Soild malt flavor with a moderate hop bitterness. Big hop flavor. Well balanced between the 2. A tad thin in places though that does not make for a bad beer. A lot of flavor for sure but at 7% I am expecting a bit more in all departments.
