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 courtesy Kmeves and shared with my buddy Ian. Cloudy amber pour with a thick white head. Citrus, grapefruit aroma, very understated, not overpowering. Malty citrus taste, lots of hops, but soooo easy to drink. Don’t know if the hops were mellowed a bit by this being last years bottle, but the hops seemed just perfect. Very nice beer and great on a hot summer day.

[1306-20080418] 1pt6floz bottle. Fruity navel orange juice hops aroma with fresh light malty earth. Hazy, light orange red body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Juicy fresh navel orange flavour is nicely balanced. Medium body has a bitter background. Very nice, yummy hops. Love the label too: a troll in a sailor suit in front of a princess getting impaled by a unicorn in front of a castle on fire.

Totally awesome beer. I got in a bottle from Kahn’s fine wines in INdianapolis, IN. Smell is of amarillo hops. The pour is nice and thick. The taste is angled towards the hops with some nice crisp malt. One of their best. To me, this is easier to drink than alpha king as it doesn’t have the hop harshness from the chinook.

An old rating i finally got to entering. Aroma wash of straight hops. Seemed like every kind possible. Citrus, pine, earthiness, spice. Flavor was pretty hoppy and very very bitter. I wish this was year round and i cant believe its only 5.5 %. The aggressive hops could easily make like place this at 8 or 9%.

My 100th IPA!

Thanks go to sprinkle for this brew. Poured a cloudy bright amber with a creamy/frothy off-white head. Fresh hoppy aroma of bitter pine and lemony citrus, very refreshing and very typical of FFF. Flavor follows with lots of bitter pine and grapefruit rind hops, just a touch of sweetness, finishing dry and quite refreshing. Mouthfeel is a tad light. Has the hop and flavor profile of a bigger beer but feels rather on the light side, making it sort of floating in a stylistic quagmire between IPA and APA. Very pleasant with excellent hop flavor though a few shades shy of mind-blowing.

22oz bottle. Dark golden color with a small white head. Grassy, sharp pine hop aromatics. Vegetal, earthy hoppiness with a tinge of candied pineapple. Moderate malt backing with a slick sweetness. Caramel and residual grass and citrus in the finish. Mouthfeel is a light medium.

Stinky aroma, but in a good way. Fresh cut hops. Vegetal aroma. Interesting beer, like smelling and eating grass. Not my favorite hop combination here. I preferred Surly bitter brewer to this beer, while others thought this brew was superior. Each to their own. Thanks to ElGaucho for letting me sample this at the bigfoot vertical tasting I hosted.

Orange color. Low carbonation. Very nice hop aroma, lots of grass and wildflowers. A little bitter, but full bodied hop flavor. Some sweet malt. Thanks to Elgaucho for sharing.

Very nice hoppy pale ale. Amber/orange pour with a small white head. Aroma is of lots of citrus hops. Taste is very citrus that finishes well. I could drink a lot of this.

Pours a pretty hazy orange with a large off white head. Aroma is heavy citrus and hoppy. I get lots of orange and pine. Hoppy goodness! Very drinkable.
