COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On a beautiful summer night in July while peaceful Danes rocked at Roskilde Festival and sipped wine in their picturesque summer retreats, an apocalyptic tidal surge flooded the famous Ølbutikken in Copenhagen and drowned thousands of precious beer – Hop Flood is a bitter tribute to the heroic bottles that didn’t make it.

Dark red pour from draft at the Dawson. Off white head. Crazy hoppy. Bitter. Fig earth and grassy taste. Complex. Great beer. A lot going on in this

Enjoyed on tap at the mega Whole Foods in Chicago, IL. Appearance is a murky brown with a white dissipating head. Aroma of sour hops, smell is funky, almost like a hoppy yeasty smell which I'm not too much of a fan of. Taste goes down rich in a complex hop profile without being too bitter. Taste is the best part of this for sure, most easy drinking sludge I've had yet.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 Just ok for me. Tried a sample on tap at Bohemian Bull. To be fair I did try it right after the Femme Fatale Brett IPA. Pours a sort of pale amber/ brown- totally transparet. Looks somewhat wimpy in the glass. Not much head or aroma. Taste is the malty/ bread you would expect with this style. Light mouthfeel Better finish than normal with an amber brown (read, some finish and balance- not all sweet). Just can’t seem to get on board with this style. I should probably skip right over amber and go from Pale Ale to Porter. Better than I remember- on tap at Appalachian Vinter. Like an amber with something to it- definite hop presence and decently weighted body. Pours opaque reddish brown with decent head. Malt and hops play nicely. Really good beer for an average style.

On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. Subdued malt and floral hops. Slightly hazy golden-amber with full white head. Flavor is citrus and pine. Moderate stong bitterness with a semi-dry finish.

12oz bottle. Bottled on Dec. 9, 2013. Pours a murky brown/amber hue, with partials, and a light khaki colored head. Very faint aromas of malt bread, caramel, and herbal hops when cold. Weak aroma. As promised though, a flood of hops fill the mouth. Flavors of pine and citrus rind dominate, with a good amount of lingering bitterness on the palate. Like chewing on marijuana. It definitely relieved my hop itch, though aroma was a big disappointment for the price. If your craving bitter hops in your mouth, this is worth trying... Good hoppy palate. Though if your looking for the complete package, with amazing hop aromatics, this beer is a pass. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

12 ounce bottle. Hoppy with pine and citrus notes. Body is dark like an amber. Malt build there in the background. Slight fruit finish.

The Sampler, tap: Pours amber with a whitish head. Aroma is citrus, earthy hops, and some pine. Taste is pretty much the same... plenty of earthiness... very Danish in that way. Citrus is subdued and sort of melded into the other hop flavors. Quite bitter. I think we have come to the point where there is no difference between an IPA and an amber. Honestly, who could tell the difference.

Draft. Pours medium brown with lacing head. Nice hop aroma with some nice pine and citrus notes. Medium body, with a nice malty backbone. Nice.
