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.

Another good one from FFF. Fruit and citrus hops in the aroma and flavor. Hazy golden pour with off white head. Good bitterness.

aroma is not as overwhelming as i thought it might be, but still is delicious. darker ruby color bordering on that of an IIPA despite the low ABV here. VERY sessionable, this is relaxed. while not overly challenging, this remains interesting and overall fulfilling. unique amongst wet hop ales for its almost ’moderation’ from a brewery known for no holds barred with the green buds.

HonkeyBra (3523) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2008
22 oz Bottle from Binny’s. Pours a dark, hazy orange with a sticky white head. The aroma is amazing. Tropical fruits, bitter hops, grapefruit, caramel, grass, some citrus rind. Flavor is bitter at first, then fruity, with some caramel before a very bitter finish. Mouthfeel medium bodied and sticky, in a good way. This beer is so drinkable I wish I’d bought a case.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2010 [2008 release on draft sampled 10.22.08] Dark orange/amber pour with a medium off-white frothy head. Fresh piney/resin hop aroma. First taste is very very bitter and earthy, lightly sweet and floral. Pretty straightforward flavor, mostly bitter. Would also like to find a bottle of this. . . . . 8 4 8 4 15 . . . . . . . . . Bottle sampled 12.30.08. Pours a clear dark orange amber with a few bubbles and a small off-white froth. Fantastic aroma, fresh hops, piney resin, sweet, more citrus than on draft. Flavor follows, more earthy and bitter, floral, piney, lightly toasted sweet malts, a tad green. Flavors meld together really nicely and finish quite bitter, a bit soapy with notes of bubblegum. Medium bodied, fluffy carbonation, not really sticky, but more creamy. . . . 8 4 8 4 15 . . . . . . . .[2010 bottle sampled 12.28] mmm very nice this year! huge charge of centennial I think! woody piney sappy grapefruit, great body, great carbonation, fantastic beer!

22oz bottle thanks to Axilla for sharing. (last years bottle). Poured hazy copper in color with a medium sized beige head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of grapefruit, and citrus hops with caramel malt. Tastes of sweet ripe citrus, grapefruit, hops, caramel, and orange peel. Very nice smooth drinking harvest ale. Very enjoyable.

Poured into a Stone OG tulip glass. Appearance is hazy bright orange hue, big frothy white head dissipates to a thin layer, web-like lacing on the glass. Smell is big sour grapefruit with some floral and grassy tones, consistent with fresh hops, other citrus and light fruits. Taste is initially sweetened grapefruit hops with a nice orange background, some pine resin and grassy hops transition to biscuity malts, finishes dry and bitter. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, thick resiny texture coats the tongue, moderately high carbonation. Drinkability is high, this is a flavorful and sweetly hopped IPA with great balance, the alcohol presence is minimal and the wet hops add great character to the taste.

Bottle courtesy Kmeves and shared with my buddy Ian. Cloudy amber pour with a thick white head. Citrus, grapefruit aroma, very understated, not overpowering. Malty citrus taste, lots of hops, but soooo easy to drink. Don’t know if the hops were mellowed a bit by this being last years bottle, but the hops seemed just perfect. Very nice beer and great on a hot summer day.

[1306-20080418] 1pt6floz bottle. Fruity navel orange juice hops aroma with fresh light malty earth. Hazy, light orange red body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Juicy fresh navel orange flavour is nicely balanced. Medium body has a bitter background. Very nice, yummy hops. Love the label too: a troll in a sailor suit in front of a princess getting impaled by a unicorn in front of a castle on fire.

Totally awesome beer. I got in a bottle from Kahn’s fine wines in INdianapolis, IN. Smell is of amarillo hops. The pour is nice and thick. The taste is angled towards the hops with some nice crisp malt. One of their best. To me, this is easier to drink than alpha king as it doesn’t have the hop harshness from the chinook.

An old rating i finally got to entering. Aroma wash of straight hops. Seemed like every kind possible. Citrus, pine, earthiness, spice. Flavor was pretty hoppy and very very bitter. I wish this was year round and i cant believe its only 5.5 %. The aggressive hops could easily make like place this at 8 or 9%.
