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 shared by sliffy @ cbus X. Orange pour with an off white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, pale caramel malt. Flavors of citrus, light bready malt, grapefruit, pine. Medium body, hoppy/malty with a bitter/malty finish. If only we got this instead of that damn Behemoth.

22oz bottle from iowaherkeye. Thanks Joey. Poured a clear dark orange color. Head was thick, sticky, and off white with good retention and lacing. The malt and hops were well balanced in the aroma. I smelled citrus, potato chip, and crushed pine needles. Smooth, medium bodied mouth feel. Delicately sweet on the tongue with mild to moderate hop bitterness of about 4 out of 10. The flavor palate included distinct newly mowed hay, orange, and toffee elements. There was also a bit of sweat. Strange mix of flavors, but still pretty good.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Slightly hazy orange beer with thin head. Big fresh grapefruity hop aromas with some spice to it as well. Really fills the nose. Flavor is sweet and floral hops. Bitterness is surprisingly well checked. Finish is smooth with some piney bitterness to boot. Very fresh and easy drinking.

Poured a clear light orange-copper color with an off-white head. Great fruit flavor and aroma. Citrus and pine hops hide the malt flavor beneath. Mildly bitter finish with a light to medium body.

Thanks a lot of iowakerkeye for the bottle. Hazy, light copper orange body with a light khaki head. The aroma is massive grapefruit with caramel and vanilla ice cream. The taste has some rich caramel and grapefruit. This is surprisingly smooth, not at all what I expected. Nicely balanced with lots of almonds in the aftertaste. The body is lightly carbonated. A solid brew.

Bottle I believe from eithcubes. Big beastly aroma of orange and bubblegum. Poured a not so appetizing cloudy yellow color. Flavor was rather quick with a bit of caramel and a bitter hop finish. For a straight IPA this is pretty good.

Thanks to hopdog for the bottle. Color of copper with off-white frothy head. Nose of citrus and sweet fruit. Flavor was hoppy up front with strong notes of pineapple juice. Body is medium with a clean hoppy finish.

22 oz bottle. Slightly hazy orange pour with a nice head. Aromas were sweet hoppy citrus. Flavors moved more to the green and floral, pine like side of the hops. Still some citrus in there though. Very fresh flavor in the hop profile. Very tasty IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 Courtesy of fordest. 650 ml bottle shared with fordest and padrefan. Poured a copper-orange color with a generous white head. The aroma was dominated by sweet citrus and pine. The flavor did not follow the aroma in that the sweetness I picked up in the nose never really materialized in the taste. The taste was very hops forward with grapefruit, oranges, bread and pine. The mouthfeel was medium and complex-- a very satisfying malt quaff. The finish was short and clean with biter hops lingering and then dropping off suddenly. Overall: a superior IPA, I’d drink this every day if I could. Recommended.
