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.

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 (1454) - @ $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.

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?

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.

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.

Bottle: Thanks to renhed for sharing. Light copper in color with a sizeable cream head. Floral and citrus hop bomb compliments some wheat notes and light malts. Nice, crisp mouth feel, not too thick. Grapefruit, wheat and both floral and piney hops wreck the palate, very smooth and refreshing. Good stuff.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Golden color. Smell of grassy hops, citrus, malt, orange peal, pine and caramel notes. Tastes the same. Very nice IPA that I was waiting to try and finally found.

So after tasting their other offerings, this one just doesn’t stack up. Is it fair to compare this with Alpha King & Dreadnaught, probably not but it’s impossible not to. Crystal clear mandarin body with a small white head that doesn’t leave lacing but instead a sticky glaze on the inside of the glass. Very hop forward, this one just doesn’t bring the complexities of its counterparts.

I love the fresh hopped stuff, and I would have assumed FFF would knocked my socks off. It was good but didnt go that far. Very organic and citrusy, but it seemed a little thin and 22 oz was alot. Maybe just a pint or 12 oz would have been good. Nice to try, but I will stick with Alpha King.
