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.

Bottle generously shared by Jason. Ooh, this was tasty. Bright amber orange pour with a lovely off-white head. Lots of fruity goodness. Hops were not too bitter or resiny. Nice floral notes as well. Light and drinkable. Would drink lots of this if I could.

Bottle shared by JCB. Thanks Jason. Pours an orange golden with a sudsy white lace. Nose is piney and citrus, with some light apricot. Big sweet malts and heavy hops highlight the flavor. Pretty darn good harvest ale.

My review got erased during posting...will try again later. Suffice to say, too much malt and not enough hop for a "hop harvest" beer. It has a balance similar to Alpha King, which is good, but I expected more for this type of brew.

22oz from StFun. Thanks, Josh. Very appealing from the pour right to the finish. A lush orange color, with a slight yeasty look to it, but an overall vibrancy of color. Thick head. The aroma is extremely floral, fruity, but with a subtle undertone of earthiness. While the soft floral notes do most of the work, there is enough bitterness in the flavor to give this real balance. Full bodied, strong finish, one of the better harvest beers I have had.

22oz bomber. Pours a nice golden amber with a small but dense white head. Aromas of pine, fruits, citrus, hops of course. Flavors are sweet caramel malts and hops, citrus and pine, nicely balanced and a very nice drink

Thanks JCB for sharing. Pours a hazy soft gold with a 1-2 finger frothy offwhite head. The nose is very hoppy, fresh and citrusy, grapefruit rind, mango, apricot, very pungent. The flavor is upfront and hoppy, citrusy, mild bitterness coupled with full flavor, citrus rind, lemonzest, develops an earthy maltiness with some warmth. Nice mouthfeel and soft bitterness.

22oz bottle from Badbeer. Pours hazy amber with a moderate sized white head that leaves good lace. Smells astringent and citrusy hoppy. Complex yet potent. Tastes sweet malty and big citrusy hoppy, nice balance, very tasty. One of the better wet hop beers that I have had. Medium body, good carbonation.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2010 Bottle from stfun. Thanks josh. Wierd troll on the lable. Reminds me of some old toy I had. About the Beer: Dark orange in color, decent head. Nice aroma of fresh simcoe hops. Taste is close to the nose, fresh hop taste. Not super bitter though. A tad bit sweet, malt presence, but a well balanced fresh hop IPA. There is a little fruityness in there, maybe from the gem hops. Great creamy texture, with a medium carbonation level. Good beer, thanks josh. Wish I had more dreadnaught to taste with it!!!

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a 1 inch off-white head. Citrusy grapefruit aroma loaded with hop. Lots of citrusy hop, but a nice malt balance. Medium finish. Great stuff.

Orange amber, off-white head. It smells like a dank funky fruit and hop filled cellar, the kind you want to swim in. Full and round on the palate but has a light airy feel at the same time. This beer is weird, crazy good weird. Wet stick hops are prominent throughout, they smell and taste like they could be smoked. Did I mention this beer is dank? Not a whole lot of fruit on the palate, very easy to drink. Cannabis lovers would freak out over this beer, too bad I quit.
