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. Aroma hits as soon as the cap was off. Pours a light orange with 2 finger head. Very nicely balanced brew. Reminded of Two Hearted Ale but a little smoother. Toffee and malt finish. Incredible brew from Three Floyds and one of the best beers I’ve had. Cannot recommend this enough. I am awaiting next October already!!!!

Outstanding. Exceeded all expectations and set a very high bar for wet hopped IPAs. The aroma is truly incredible: ripe, pungent sweet orange sherbert and grapefruit - lemon zest - bitterness from pine, lemon rind and grapefruit oil. The taste was a great surprise because it was much more bitter than the assumption I had after the very sweet aroma - grapefruit peel, lemon zest, and pine. Cannot come up with any complaints on the look and feel - great pale off yellow creamy head.

Damn near perfect India Pale Ale. Nice subtle notes of nuts, toffee, orange, and pine aroma. Very well balanced with a lot of beautiful hop flavor. Nice carbonation, well hidden alcohol, and super interesting brew. I’d gift this to ANYONE.

fabulous beer! aroma’s the best with a nice blend of caramel, malt, fresh hop. the mouth is a bit off where bitterness leaves some sharp edges. very drinkable tho.

An old rating i finally got to entering. Aroma wash of straight hops. Seemed like every kind possible. Citrus, pine, earthiness, spice. Flavor was pretty hoppy and very very bitter. I wish this was year round and i cant believe its only 5.5 %. The aggressive hops could easily make like place this at 8 or 9%.

Totally awesome beer. I got in a bottle from Kahn’s fine wines in INdianapolis, IN. Smell is of amarillo hops. The pour is nice and thick. The taste is angled towards the hops with some nice crisp malt. One of their best. To me, this is easier to drink than alpha king as it doesn’t have the hop harshness from the chinook.

22 oz. bottle from FFF in Munster. Pours golden orange with a foamy, almost white, head. Fresh pine aroma that fades to grapefruit. The taste is perfection; bitter grapefruit rind, fresh cut grass, and hints of pineapple and tangerine. Certainly bitter but also well balanced. Just about perfect in terms of an IPA.

Pours hazy light amber with 2 finger head and great retention. Aroma is SUPER fresh hop resin glands, fresh hop "cheesiness", citrus, a backbone of toasted malt. Taste is just how it smells; abundantly hopped and fresher than fresh. Body is medium, frothy, oily, finshes dry and resiny. Overall, this is the freshest and best fresh hop ale I’ve had. Absolutely INCREDIBLE!!

This beer tastes great. Awesome fruity aroma. Drinkability is off the charts! Smooth, smooth, smooth. To sum it up in one word : delicious My only beef is the price. $8.99 for a measly 22oz. It would be more appropriate to sell this 7%abv offering in 6 pack. 4 beers while sitting at home shouldn't cost near $20 This company caters to rich college kids. The three floyds brewery is a tourist stop. Nick Floyd needs to increase availability of his product. Dear nick buy some bigger tanks alredy! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
