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.

Gorbalev (3000) - 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 (585) - 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.

blankboy (6462) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2008
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.

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2008
2008-04-18. Lightly hazy orange body with a modest off white head. Very nice aroma of sweet orange or tangerine citrus is really quite nice. Flavour has similar citrus, but there is a bit more resin, and moderate bitterness throughout. Average palate is fuller than average. Not as in your face as some of their other products, but this is really flavourful and nice. Bottle from trade with chicagodri

Poured slightly hazy golden orange with very fine, thin head. Aroma is strong of citrus, especially grapefruit. Hop character is strong and earthy with a great bitter finish. FFF always does great things.

pepsican (1505) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 11, 2008
hazy orange with a small white head. Strong citrus aroma. Flavor is pineapple, grapefruit, peaches, mango, hops, etc. Although the hops have fallen off a bit, they still come through and the backdrop is very nice in this one. Mildly bitter finish.

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - APR 11, 2008
Darker yellow with an off-white head. Huge aromas of pineapple, pine, mango, and other citrus. Just beautiful. In the taste I got pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, and peach; so much citrus and excellently balanced. Medium carbonation and a little less than medium bodied. Best wet hop beer I’ve had. Another great FFF’s beer!

Thanks PEPSICAN for this brew I supplied. Great bear, smell of pineapple, grapefruit, dankness. Taste of the same. Am I at 75 characters yet?

tompete (233) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2008
Bright yellow/orange with a fast disappearing white head. Bright orange, citrus and grapefruit aroma - amazing. Followup on the flavor is right on par with the smell. Very well balanced with the malt - citrus flavors. A very refreshing beer.

WeeHeavySD (3361) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bomber via trade with Motortoddhead. Shared with my girlfriend Cyn. Pours ornage with a foramy tan head. Nose is piney hoppy and has some new zealand citrus in there as well. Taste is big on the citrus and nicely crisp and still fresh. I don’t think this has diminished much since it was fresh fresh. Good harvest IPA.
