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. 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.

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!

auerbrau (3178) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Poured from a 22oz Bottle. Fantastic heavy resin aroma just leaps from the glass, giving visions of conifer forests, rosemary, aromatic oils, and citrus sugars. Awesome. Pours orange with super lacing white. Flavor comes as very sprucey, and warm. There’s that fantastic amalgamation into a warm, bready pine and unique grasses. Heavy on the dripping, resinous freshness. Some esters and yeast notes keep it alive and lend to the complexity. Malt has a good play to keep it in balance. And the hops don’t get overly bitter, which makes this beer such a winner for me. If you can build such tremendously complex and detailed hop flavor through utilization without turning it into a metallic, planty mess, it wins and that’s that’s why this beer is so nice. A fantastic, fresh IPA. Thanks for sharing this beer Sean!

Pours a clear copper with a 2 finger foamy white head and plenty of sticky lacing.Resiny, pine, citrus and tropical fruit with a touch of caramel in the background. Similar to aroma. Resiny pine, citrus, tropical fruit and grassy hop flavor with some sweet caramel and biscuit in the background. Good bitterness but still nicely balanced. Medium body with a bit of oily slickness and a slight bitterness that lingers.

22oz bottle. Copper color and clear. Light carbonation and a wisp of head. Great big fresh hop aroma that has pine and grassy notes. Just a touch of sweetness too. Very good flavor. Fresh hops with pine and hint of citrus peal and touch of earthiness. Jut a touch of grain sweetness for all the hops to play over. Semi-dry mouth feel with a medium body. These “wet hop” brews are quite good in that these is a solid amount of hops but they are in no way harsh, just clean bitterness.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 1, 2008
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.
