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.

While it was super hoppy and had a great aroma, I wasn’t too enthused with it. I drank a few and it did go well with the Brewer’s Pie. Unbalanced, but what you’d expect from a fun experiment in hop-overload-ness. I hope they continue with this Harvest Ale tradition!

Pours a rich orange with a nice robust white head. The aroma is very powerful. Fruity, hoppy, very much like a Dreadnaught. The taste is surprising in comparison to the aroma. I was expecting to be overpowered by it. That was not the case. It’s very smooth and appropriately bitter. Nice beer.

Bottle provided by kmweaver. hazy amber body with a small beige head. The nose is lightly sweet with lots of cotton candy, apricot, tangerine, light grapefruit and a touch of caramel. The flavor is lightly sweet, moderately bitter with cotton candy, caramel, light pine, grapefruit and tangerine. Medium body is soft, almost chewy with moderate carbonation.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Poured from a 22oz bottle and served in a shaker. This beer poured a mostly clear amber with a lasting, one finger beige head. Some very nice, sticky lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of sweet and spicy citrus and pine notes, and also some sweet, lightly roasted caramel. The flavor included a huge hop profile that was smooth and not overly bitter or astringent. Huge notes of grapefruit rind were followed up and balanced out by some caramel and toffee. The drink was medium-bodied with mild carbonation providing a soft mouthfeel. A very tasty IPA/harvest ale.

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.

Bomber from BBB63! Nose is piney, floral, citrusy hops; copper with a big straw head; flavor is mild hop bitterness, a light fruitiness, and some caramel; finish is slightly bitter. Good IPA but not great!

Smells very citrusy... big-time grapefruit and oranges. Actually it smells a lot like Hopslam. Pours a deep copper, with a nice head. Taste is kindof tough. It starts off citrusy, but finishes way too harsh. It drops off where Hopslam finishes.Overall, not bad though, and definitely a good IPA.

Bomber via trade with Motortoddhead. Shared with my girlfriend Cyn. Pours ornage with a foramy tan head. Nose is piney hoppy and has some new zealand citrus in there as well. Taste is big on the citrus and nicely crisp and still fresh. I don’t think this has diminished much since it was fresh fresh. Good harvest IPA.
