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.

Bottle from ebay purchase. Sampled with Stegosaurus. Thin hazy orange pour with big aromas of floral hop and pine with a splash of citrus. The flavor was really smoothly balanced and for a regular IPA it was really good considering I like Imperial IPA’S. Really good. No strong after taste it goes right into business and finishes clean.

Let me start by saying that in my opinion this is about as good as an IPA can get. Had this on tap a couple of years ago and was just simply in awe. This rating is from a fresh bottle courtesy of therealbastard: Pours a beautiful golden amber with small white head. Pine needles immediately explode to the forefront in the aroma followed by tremendous amounts of floral notes. The taste can be summed up by just saying Hoptastic, pine and grapefruit...juicy hops. Not quite as good in a bottle but absolutely delicious nonetheless, If I could drink this fresh year round I would be a very happy man!

mcmd (310) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 4, 2008
22 oz bottle bought at a nearby liquor store DLD "08 in Munster. Pours a golden orange with 1 1/2 finger head, dissipates to thin film slowly. incredible nose of peaches and apricots, similar to alpha king but much stronger aroma. Taste a perfect balance of apricot hops and malt, nice and crisp with a slight bitterness at the finish - very smooth. Nice beer, I could drink this all summer. Wish I would have obtained more.

I love these Harvest Ales. Pours dark amber in color with a nice rocky two inch head. Spotty lacing is left on the glass. Smell is bittering hops. Taste is juicy bittering hops with a substantial malt backbone for support. As easy drinking of an IPA that I’ve ever had. Smooth, and juicy on mouthfeel. I could drink a ton of this stuff.

pours hazy orange, slight head disipates to a ring of tiny off-white bubbles. aroma is peppery, musty, citrusy, hoppy. flavor is spicy, peppery and bitter. finishes astringent and bitter. not unappealing, but a bit too musty overall for my taste.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle (22oz). Shared with blankboy, jerc, mabel, and tupalev - bottle courtesy of J&K. Thanks, Jer!!! Orange-amber pour, cloudy, with an average head. Aroma of fresh orange/citrus juice, lush and restrained sharp citrus hops - simple and VERY appealing. Tasted just as it smelled - hoppy, citrusy and crisp, juicy and decently malty in the finish. I found the body a touch watery, but not distractingly so, nicely astringent and carbonated, and the finish was medium-long and softly bitter - really well put together, not a hop monster at all.

Gorbalev (2906) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle shared with Jerc, Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, and Mabel, courtesy of Jerc. Dark orange, good sized white head. Nice but mild fruity aroma. Godo taste - mild hopd, nice fruity malt balance. Earthy. Really solid and drinkable. A good low key IPA.

Lothore (542) - California, USA - APR 26, 2008
A- Pours a clear, sunset orange color with a small, frothy white head. S- Very hoppy with a deep malt background, piney hops, sweetness invades the nose towards the end. Smells a lot like Alpha King only a little hoppier. T- Taste is surprisingly tame begins with grapefruit hop notes, moves on to sweet caramely malt and ends with a bit of hop bitterness. M- This is my main beef with some of the 3 F’s brews. I think this beer and dreadnaught are a little undercarbonated. Make it seem too creamy for an ipa. Just my opinion. D- This is an incredibly drinkable IPA. Marketed as a "harvest ale" so I don’t know if three floyds was specifically looking at the IPA category but this could be easily sessioned.

Bottle (22oz) shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev, jerc & mabel -- courtesy of jerc. Pours a hazy dark orange with an average size lasting creamy white head. Aroma’s sweet but nice and hoppy, a good amount of citrus & resiny hops. Flavour’s hoppy and malty along with fruit and some light sweetness. Average bitter finish. Medium bodied. Simpler then most of their other beers but it’s nice and enjoyable.
