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.

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.

Bomber courtesy of inkubus27. Pours a hazy orange with a 2 finger head and spotty lacing. Nose is nice – sweet citrus, malt and pine. Palate is pink grapefruit, malt with just a bit of a hoppy bite. Creamy mouthful. Pretty mellow IPA – more so than I thought it would be coming from 3F. This one is definitely sessionable, as it’s a solid, every day IPA with low ABV. It would be one of my go to beers if they sold it here.

hotstuff (4874) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Bottle. Small ivory head that mostly diminished, fair amount of lacing, transparent, very little carbonation, and an orange hue. Nose was caramel, hoppy, citrus, pine, grapefruit, and bitter.Ditto for the flavor. Medium in body. Very quaffable, not overly hoppy, would drink again and worthy of a try.

Wonderful,juicey, orange like hops envelope your nose,as orangey as I’ve ever experienced. theres probaly some malt in the background,but I’m content just to bask in the fragrance of this hop field located in the middle of a Florida Orange Grove,flavor does not dissappoint, like biting into a tart orange hopping, that fades into a pleasant bitter finish,malt is not a factor,just a hair on the thin side ,so you don’t mistake it for an Imperial anything,bitterness gets a little aggresive at the finish. Man do I love these Harvest Ales,and nobody does it better then the Midwest Brewers

This beer has the GAYEST label I’ve ever seen. Come on now, a troll doll with a princess, unicorn, and rainbow in the background? WTF!!! The beer pours to a bright glowing amber body with a creamy white head. The aroma is very hoppy with what I thought was cascade, amarillo, and centennial. Perhaps that’s the Pacific Gem hops shining through? Very clean aromas. The flavor is hoppy but has some harsh notes around the edges. Sweet and bitter catty, floral, and grassy hops. Bitter pungent medium bodied palate. Thanks Todd for getting me this beer! (Simply wish it was better).

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Bottle thanks to JohnC. Pours orange with a very small almost non-existent head. Aroma is sweet and resiny. Malt backbone is substantial but perhaps a touch too sweet, almost syrupy. Hop flavors are in abundance, fruity, flowery and citrus, but with less aromatic character. A nice, interesting beer.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Pours a clear amber topped by medium off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma of orange, grapefruit and pine (maybe a hint of passion fruit). Flavor is medium sweet, grapefruit, pine,orange. Medium chewy body. Somewhat short pineapple bitter finish.

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.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2008
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.
