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. October release.

Bomber poured into shaker. Beer is clear orange with near-white head that settles to a thin cap and leaves some legs on the glass. Aroma is citrus and floral hop notes with a faint nut and caramel malt thread. Flavor is medium-high citrus and floral spice bitterness with minimal mid-palate sweetness. Medium bodied, oily and creamy, soft carbonation, with a bitter finish. Didn’t have that fresh punch that Founder’s harvest did, but really good overall.

No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is crystal clear with an orange-amber hue. The head is short with average retention, settling into a sparse white coating with a foamy white ring.
Aroma: The aroma is strong on the pour, pushing its way to my nose which is a foot away. The aroma is bursting with citrus, I get orange juice and pink grapefruit along with some pine tar and a mild floral presence.
Taste: This is surprisingly balanced from everything that I’ve read about Three Floyds. The body is sort of nutty with a mild sweetness with a spicy hop presence strong during the mid-taste and a orange soda like flavor on the finish with a pine bitterness presence. There is a bit of caramel by the finish which balanced the pine out a bit. The finish lingers a moment of pineapple and a sort of dankness, god I hate that word but it makes so much sense sometimes.
Palate: Full-bodied, sort of soft texture. Very nice.
Overall: This is a juicy IPA that I very much enjoy. I really like everything about this beer, but something isn’t clicking. This is a worthwhile buy though and I would buy it once a year if I lived in distro.

Bottle shared at Atlanta Beer Fantasy Football meetup. This one was just fresh and juicy and really got my attention. Nice citrus, tropical fruits with a known but caramal backbone that does take a backseat. Great nose of sweet citrus and tropical fruits, apricots. Love it. Nice slick mouth. Yessir.

Bomber pour. This IPA is very fresh with great resin qualities and a superb hop/malt balance. The finish is extra clean and crisp. Just an outstanding fresh IPA.

Loved this. Off gold pour with plenty of white head. Dank nose of hops, citrus, and tropical fruit. Taste follows the knows with a a nice sweetness from the malt. Probably a top 5 wet hopped beer for me.

italianjohn (2289) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Solid orange/golden pour with a decent off white head and sticky striped lacing..... Aroma is of juicy fruit and bitter in the nose, citrus and floral hops with some sugary west coast qualities ... Decent carbonation ... Taste is of juicy sugary malts, lots of juicy citrusy hops, orange and tangerines, and some piney hops ... Finish is dry very bitter and sugary with a nice malty backbone. .... Very west coast like with some fresh flavors ... Not as earthy as most fresh hops come off as but excellent nonetheless

Bottle thanks to HighWine. Nose full of hops. Some tropical notes but mostly citrus. Very clear orange color with large white head. Very fruity hop expression in the flavor without being obnoxious. Soft. Sweet malt honey notes balanced well. Great beer. Semisweet finish with a lingering bitterness.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark orange with 2 fingers of thick white head. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit with a decent dose of pine. Taste is medium bitter. Pine, grapefruit and floral notes. Medium bodied with a thinner than expected texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, pretty good.
