Served in a Devil's Backbone willibecher.

Big thanks to brundo4 from the Spring Has Sprung BIF for this bottle!

And I thought those damn troll dolls were outlawed... This brew pours a clear copper amber with over a finger of ecru froth on top, which leaves some good, thick lacing behind as it dies away. The nose comprises sparkling pine and grapefruit, as though champagne comes in such flavors, and Salerno butter cookies (you know, the rings? Delish.). The taste holds notes of hoppy pine and citrus, with the majority favoring the former, and a nice caramel in the background. Just as an IPA ought to be. The body is medium, with a moderate carbonation and a crisp, dry finish. A model, if not altogether exceptional, IPA.

Brought up the river from my brother Hopapocalypse...anybody else out there been trying to get Three Floyd's in Ohio and unable to get it. Well, my bro delivered with the goods and let me in on the place carrying their stuff. He surprised me with a Broodoo to share and a 3F's Dreadnaught, althought we weren't able to make it to their Annivesary party we were still having a fine time reconnecting this one and sharing it. Pours a slightly hazed peach glowing amber with a bright orange highlighted body, head is fine whitevery thick and well formed with the fresh wet hop oils making so much sense. Aroma is full of citrus a touch of bubblegum and booming with tropical fruit mango/pineapple to be exact super hoppy aromatics coming out. Flavor has fresh hops exploding with vinous herbal citrius and tropical fruit notes, again a nice sugary coated malt presence joins the party to balance out the raw wet hop profile. Big bone dry bitter hop finish is great, the kind of hops I whole heartedly enjoy. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slick hop oil texture gliding across the palate with each swig, finishes with a clean citric hop bitterness. Overall an excellent harvest and definitely one of my favorites out of the gate really good drinking beer as long as your splitting 22's with good company.

Thanks to Tattorso for including this in a trade!

Pours copper/amber with an off-white head that descends to a very thin layer. Some trailing lace slides down the glass.

The smell is of grapefruit, perfumy pine, pineapple, tangerine, mango, peach - very fruity, with a spiciness and a hint of caramel. Not necessarily powerful, but very nice. Complex in its tropical fruitiness.

The taste is of citric/grapefruit and tropical fruitiness - mango/pineapple. Spicy with a caramel backing. Finishes fruity and dry.

The feel is effervescent with a creamy medium body.

"Wet hopped" and well hopped, though certainly balanced.. Very smooth with a pleasant aftertaste. A very enjoyable brew.

A- Cloudy light orange on top on an inch tall white head. Average lacing.

S- Citrus front and center. Might be my favorite part of this one.

T- Grapefruit. Piney hops, caramel malts. Deliciously drinkable.

M- Slightly thin it seems. Carbonation isn't as noticeable as I feel it should be...but what do I know?

D/O- This drinks awesome. Not too bitter, not too sweet. Putting down a bomber of this would be child's play. Thanks to PTMcB for sharing!

This beer pours a apricot orange in color with a very light off white head. It's moderately cloudy for an IPA/Harvest ale. It smells excellent. There are very bitter hops upfront followed by a whole lot of citrus. I'm detect orange, grapefruit, and lemons. It also has a nice and sweet malty backbone. The flavor is definitely of bitter hops. The malty sweetness follows but it isn't nearly as strong as in the nose. A good amount of alcohol finishes off the taste, which is surprising for only being 7.5%. It drinks pretty crisp and the carbonation attacks your taste buds. It gives me cotton mouth. It's pretty drinkable but it's nothing too special as far as Harvest ales are concerned.

Three Floyds BrooDoo Harvest Ale. "A seasonal ale that glorifies American hops. BrooDoo is brewed using fresh green "wet" hops picked right from the vine and put into our beer vats, from vine to brewhouse in one day! BrooDoo also uses the best American malt money can buy. Enjoy!"

What do troll dolls in sailor suits, princesses, unicorns and rainbows have to do with a Three Floyds Harvest Ale? Perhaps it's best not to ask.

Slightly hazy, golden hued, slim, off-white head.

Aroma, grassy hops, citric hops, tropical hops, hoppy hops. Bright, bitter, and lovely.

Taste: All that and more on board the palate. Fresh, bitter, fruity, and juicy. Medium bodied, long, bitter finish. Just enough malt to hold the balance, but plenty of room for the fresh hops to shine. A touch of sweetness creeps out, but pithy, citric, little bit o'piney bitter hops hold center stage.

I like this one, but I'm thinking I had this bottle too late in the game, for it seems the freshness should have been more forward, more pronounced. Still good, still delicious, however, it feels a touch faded, if only from 3 to 4 months time.

Thanks goes out to beerwolf77 for this brew.

22oz. Bomber

Pours a nice cloudy dark golden yellow color, nice carbonation, nice little creamy off-white head, with some nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is hoppy, with some malts, citrus, and pine notes. The taste is slightly sweet, a pretty nice hoppy note, with some nice malts thrown in, citrus, and some pine notes. Medium body, slight chewyness, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Drinkable, a pretty tasty IPA.
