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.

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.

bottle - Pours copper with a one finger white head. It smells of hops (duh) with citrus and a touch of pine. The flavor is intensely hopped with enough malt backbone to keep it from being overpowering. It’s full bodied and very full flavored, especially for a regular IPA. Excellent brew.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 19, 2008
22oz bottle. Pours a brilliant mostly clear blood orange with a light, frothy off whit head. Spotty lacing was left on the glass. Big time aromas of pine and citrus. The Simcoe hops are really prevalent in bothearoma and flavor. Great bitter finish.

inkubus27 (269) - highland, Indiana, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Smells very citrusy... big-time grapefruit and oranges. Actually it smells a lot like Hopslam. Pours a deep copper, with a nice head. Taste is kindof tough. It starts off citrusy, but finishes way too harsh. It drops off where Hopslam finishes.Overall, not bad though, and definitely a good IPA.

Similar to Hopslam, pours a dark red-orange coloration. Slightly hoppy and floral. Good beer but there are better IPAs. Got so drunk I saw a troll running through some green fields. Oh wait that is just the label.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2008 I think I got this from my 3F hookup mreusch. (Thanks Matt!) Nose is hoppy and pineapple like an IIPA (as I knew it would be!) Color is beautiful copper with a thin halo of an off white head. Flavor is a bit understated, with the nose overwhelming. A bit sweet and bready in the middle, and the finish is dry and just the slightest bit bitter. For an IPA, this is a very good beer. But I have to say, after the aroma, (and from 3F) I expected a bit more flavor. Still nice brew.

Hazy apricot in color. Thick, big-bubbled cap of foam persists as it clings with each sip. Orange peel, cantaloupe, stewed peaches, pinesap, and a touch of mango line the nose. Fluffy yet considerably chalky carbonation. Unfiltered. Initial burst of mango is echoed by a crunchy and well-defined toffee-glazed nutty malt sweetness. Bright drops of peach candy fuse seamlessly with vibrant grapefruit acidity to delay the inevitable resinous onslaught which stops just short of overtiring the palate. Spicy bite of hops snugly nestles into the palate to deepen the more lustrous and well-rounded medley of soft citrus and tropical fruitiness. Hops are extremely oily yet far from brash despite the high concentration of tongue-numbing resins. Alcohol is never a factor and things are well-attenuated. Negligible oxidation has rendered the hops slightly dull as they have begun to take on a cheese curd and plasticlike quality. Still, the hops possess enough refinement and succulence, and the sweet malt enough cleanness as well as definition to retain a ridiculously high quaffability. Finishes softly acidic and peach laden, yet with a deceptively powerful bitterness of grass and orange peels. Extensive dry-hopping yields a plethora of flavorsome citric hip burps. Maybe a bit yeasty and the bitterness somewhat brash and overly resinous, but mostly clean, focused and bright, the way a hop-centric beer oughta be. Three Floyd’s is impressing me lately.
