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.

Bomber courtesy of sprinkle -- thanks!

Pours a glowing beautiful clear orange with a nice white head. Great fresh-hop aroma: leafy and green, a bit of mint, a little bit of pine resin but not cascade levels thereof. Lovely juicy hop flavor - peach and grapefruit, a bit of pineapple - mild malt sweetness, tender bitterness massaging the tongue on the finish, again that fuzzy summer mint leaf, soft bitter oils. Supremely drinkable, never too sweet, never too malt-driven, gorgeous at 5.5%.

What a splendid IPA! One of the best I’ve had in a long time.

15 DEC 07, Southeast YeHa. 22oz bottle. Aroma of fresh hoppy goodness. Flavor of clean malts, some tobacco, and lots of bitterness.

Bottle from UghSmash. Pours a hazy orange with a touch of brown and a thin head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel malt, and oranges/tangerines. The flavor has awesome hops. Softer than normal grapefruit notes accompanied by oranges, flowers, and herbal/minty hops. A small amount of balancing malt. Nice and resiny. Pretty dry mouthfeel. A little peppery as well. Medium carbonation and a medium body. A damn fine IPA! High Tide used to be my favorite fresh hopped IPA, but I think this takes the cake.

22 oz bottle. Hazed olive orange with a beige froth. Nose is pink grapefruit, caramel and orange peel. Medium body, juicy and resiny, balanced nicely with soft carb. Taste of mandarins with lemon tartness and a peppery finish. Good one.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Pours clear with an orange hue. Fluffy white head that quickly settles to nearly nothing. One thick ring of lace. Wonderful fresh hop aroma. Very complex fruity flavor with pineapple, mango, caramel & malts. Nice clean finish!

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Pours a clear orange color. Really a good looking brew. Agressive resiny hop aroma. Medium citrus hop flavor. Lip smackin finish. Pretty solid beer.

Ughsmash (7159) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Bomber. Poured brilliant medium orange with a creamy cap of beige head. The aroma was strong and juicy with a delightful blend of hoppage (pine, grapefruit, and some mango represented).. sweet caramel backing with a big of grapefruit meat.. there were just some sharper boozy notes at the back that shouldn’t be there considering the ABV. The flavor was along those same lines.. pale malts, toffee, and caramel support very green pine, grapefruit, and pear bitterness.. starts off juicy, but the combination of high bitterness and rougher alcohol notes on the back. Medium-bodied with higher carbonation across the middle with high bitterness.. again, rough on the finish.

Clear dark amber color with a tall, lasting beige head. BIG fresh hops aromas. Back to Christmas, a fresh cut frasier fir is sitting in my glass. Hints of licorice and grapefruit also floating about. Pale and toasted malts come out as this sets. Starts with a sugary hop tea. Light caramel and pear flavors seep in. Middle is loaded with green hops. Finish is mildly sweet with caramel coated hops. I seem to see a reoccurring hops note. Linger really feels and tastes like I am sucking on a just picked hop cone. Great, not quite, but I like the fresh hop idea that really does translate. They accomplished, what I think were their objectives.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Deep golden in color with lacing remaining once poured. The nose was very fresh with scents of grapefuit, fresh cut grass and herbs. In the mouth it is fresh and light with good body and a little richness in the midpalate. This would be a very nice beer in the summertime.

Aroma is perfume- like, if Calvin Klein made eau de pine tree and juicy hops. Flavor is more subtle than may 3F brews- sweet and grassy with a bit of peach. A bit of tea maybe. Excellent!
