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.

22 oz. bottle, special delivery from drewbeerme - thanks man! Pours clear deep copper with a moderate off-white head and spotty lace. Predominantly hoppy aroma with a nice toasty malt nose as well, light summeer fruits, floral hops and a spritz of orange peel. Grainy malts, nice hop flavors, floral and herby, with hints of citrus, a bit of resin in the finish and aftertaste. Mediu body gently tingly carbonation.

Bottle courtesy of pantanap (thanks!). Pours reddish orange with little to no head. Aroma is slightly abrasive grapefruit and piney hops. Taste is very bitter with some malt in the background. Palate is mediocre, nothing special. Finish is very bitter. I was expecting more from this one. Oh well.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Bottle shared by MaxxDaddy. Astringent grapefruit and pineapple aroma with a touch of crystal malts. Auburn pour with little head. Overly bitter flavor with muddy malts. Another boring 3F beer, if you ask me, more akin to an amber than an IPA. Really nothing special, certainly not 99th percentile.

Bottle at argo0’s xmas party, thanks BBB63! Pours golden brown, with a medium white head. Very hoppy (big surprise!), and malty in nose. Flavor is similar, bread, grain, and alcohol in aftertaste. Very good beer.

BeerandBlues2 (9465) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2007
22-oz bottle from SS ’07, holdenn. Pours clear and clean amber with an average, fizzy, off-white head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (cookie, straw, lightly toasted grain, caramel), heavy hops (pine, flowers, perfume), average yeast (sweat, dough) with notes of apple, pear, and wood. Medium to full bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation, and a bitter, dry finish. Long duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness.

WolfsBlood84 (172) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2007
22 oz. Bomber - A friend and I went to FFF’s brewpub on our brewery tour. We bought the first bottle of this season (Nov. 1). Pours a cloudy, hazy orange/amber color with great nearly white head. Aroma is incredible - very fresh smelling hops paired with all different kinds of citrus and other fruits topped off with a grassy/woodsy-ness. Fantastic. Flavor is nearly the same just a bit more subdued. Definitely one to seek out!

Tilley4 (218) - Huron, Tennessee, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Everything I could ask for in an IPA. Very hoppy yet balanced. Very crisp aroma of fresh hops, extremely pleasant. I couldn’t get my nose out of the glass. I had been waiting to have this one and it didn’t disappoint. Simply amazing. Wonderful fresh hop taste, a bit sweet with a nice bitterness to the finish. This is one of the top IPAs out there. I wish I could get this in Tn. It was worth the drive to Indiana to pick this up. Simply wonderful.

jcr (2187) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Outstanding — more complex, more balanced and more interesting than most IPAs. Small, off-white head atop a hazy light amber body. Big aroma of citrus, orange, grapefruit and lime. Notes of pine and pineapple. The flavor is light to moderately sweet, moderately bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body with a sticky texture. Juicy mouthfeel, like drinking a citrus/orange juice cooler. Dry finish. Comfortable carbonation. Very drinkable.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2007
22 oz. bottle: Coppery colored pour with a ring of foam. The nose is really fresh hops, bright and distinct. Sweet grapefruit, rose petal perfume and fresh oranges and tangerines. The body starts perfectly bitter, with loads more fresh hops to follow. A light caramel notes keeps the hop onslaught in check. Very easy to drink and perfectly balanced. This is a great IPA.
