Nothing like a Sunday afternoon to get caught up on the piles of Blu Rays, comics, and beer reviews. Sunday provides a certain quality to my beer articles, maybe because I work on Monday, so I’m paying more attention in my rapidly depleting time today. Saturday night didn’t seem like the time to pay attention since that’s prime time for the new Tomb Raider. Regardless, I found this on the shelf at Liquor Barn and it’s review time for Broo Doo.
Brewed by Three Floyds Brewing Co. & Brewpub
Style: American IPA
Serve at 45-50°
Enjoyed from a DFH Signature glass
A: Pours a hazy golden apricot color underneath an inch of off-white head. Nice retention and spotty lacing.
S: Wow. Is it normal for a hop bomb to be bursting with cotton candy notes? After the powerful sweetness, the typical Three Floyds tropical notes come out. Grapefruit, pineapple, mango, citrusy, resinous hops. Plenty of malt with an herbal mossy aroma.
T: Candied pineapple, mango, juicy grapefruit, caramel with a crisp bitterness to finish.
M: Smooth, thick, and creamy, low carbonation. Very nice.
O: I know most harvest ales should have been enjoyed months ago, so I can only imagine what this would have been like much earlier. Still, this is a delicious beer even this late in the game. Fans of Three Floyds might consider this a lesser IPA given their hop-heavy nature. It’s well worth the money.
