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.

Pours a very nice hazy reddish brown with small amount of off white head that leaves speckled lacing. Smells like citrusy hops, and pine not over powering though. Tastes just like smell, the hops taste "soft" has a nice sweet malt backbone and lightly bitter aftertaste Palate on this one might be my favorite part - it’s thin yet velvety and mouth coating This is a very good beer, the flavors are all familiar, but different enough from usual to keep things interesting.

Got this thanks to Honkeybra. Crushed with Jakebra. Hops. Very nice. What’s missing? Something is missing. Not as full-bodied as I’d like or the balance is off or I just don’t understand wet-hopping...? Still damn good, but it should be better and I don’t understand what the problem is.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Bottle shared by Crosling. Poured a bright amber-orange color with a thin off-white head that faded to a ring. Aroma of fresh, leafy hops with some light pine and resin, as well as a soft undertone of citrus. Smooth, earthy entry leads into a moderately bitter, leafy hoppiness with some light pine and a light earthiness on the finish. Moderate carbonation, nice mouthfeel. Overall, a nice IPA.

3fourths (8639) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2008
2008 harvest ale. Pours clear red-tinted ruby colored body. Big perfumed dank melon and creamed orange, bright, wet, hugely green. Celery and sweet spinach, harsh, bitter, astringent, etc., assertive and aggressive, nearly impressive but a little too young and green.

Wonderful IPA - beautiful amber with grapefruity, piney nose with some mango. Lighter than Alpha king but with similar palate I thought - beautiful beer.

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 (3797) - 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!
