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.

My review got erased during posting...will try again later. Suffice to say, too much malt and not enough hop for a "hop harvest" beer. It has a balance similar to Alpha King, which is good, but I expected more for this type of brew.

Bottle from Clint (starcross) -- cheers, buddy! My main two impressions from this beer were 1) Lots of wet hop aroma and flavor, and 2) pretty full caramel sweet malt taste. I’m a bit hit-or-miss with wet hops -- I find them to be fresh but not as flavorful -- but this is really well done. Very sweet for an IPA, but still really good!

superspak (4569) - Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2015
22 ounce bottle into signature teku glass, bottled on 9/24/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, peach, apricot, mango, lemon/orange rind, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy hop earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent bitterness after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness; with increasing dryness and bitterness through the glass as more hop oils linger on the palate. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky/resinous, and creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming lingering after the finish. Overall this is an incredible harvest IPA. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Bottle from Big Red Liquor, Indianapolis. Pours a clear orange body under a large white head that reduces with a high pillow of foam. The aroma is heavy with malty bread and caramel with traces of perfume and pine. Flavors are not as strong as the aroma, yet still display complexity. Notes of tangerine, orange popsicle, cream, vanilla, bubblegum, subtle caramel; all swirling around with a pleasant resinous hops presence that does not overpower the other flavors. Light/medium carbonation and medium body. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every offering I’ve tried so far from Three Floyds and this is no exception.

Pretty typical good fresh hop pale ale. Not as pungent as something like Alpha King but still solid.

Hazy yellow orange, with a half inch of dense white head. Aroma is full of tangerine and perfumey citrus. Taste is the same, but lighter than expected, with fainter floral notes, and tangerine peel. Thanks, Janet! (Werewolf DUI day)

Nice aroma of peach, grapefruit, bubblegum. Taste is grapefruit, passion fruit, caramel, tangerine. A very nice bubblegum after taste. Also, a very bubbly mouthfeel.
