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.

Lukaduke (1735) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Pours a deep rusty brown color with a finger of off white foam that settles quickly. On the nose its alot of earthy malt with hints of citrus and pine. On the palate this beer has big malty flavor but not so much sweetness... a rich black tea earthy bordering on graham cracker towards the bitter finish makes a great base for big bitter hop notes of pine, citrus and grapefruit !

Bottle shared by Butters. Thanks! Pours a murky brown color with a medium sized frothy head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big resin and herbal hops with toffee malts. The taste is herbal and resin hops. Faint caramel malts. Lingering bitterness. Thin-medium bodied. Decent.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2012
September 18, 2012 - on draught at Blue Monk. Murky reddish-brown with a smallish creamy/foamy tan head. Smells like a not-boozy American barley wine - tons of dry leafy resin bitterness, some alcohol; very malty, but not really sweet, maybe a hint of cocoa powder in there; dry (7+). Taste follows, even more bitter, maybe a little lactic sourness. Thick, solidly carbonated, finishes dry and leafy, and the bitterness doesn’t ramp up, it fades a bit - easy to drink.

Tmoney99 (10073) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear dark hazy amber hue with medium frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy aroma of earthy hops and malt. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced flavor of malt and earthy hops with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

b3shine (4408) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle to snifter (thanks tmoney99). Looks solid; a cloudy amber with thin beige lacing. Smells and tastes well-sweet and a little golly. Good, but I’d like to see a little more hops, given it’s name.

mcberko (5352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a dark amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is a mix of both potent caramel malts and a resinous hop blast, with some notes of dark fruit and brown sugar as well – very inviting nose. Flavour is very deep and robust, with loads of dry caramel malts, lots of resinous hops, some dark fruits and some earthy notes – finishes very dry and fairly hoppy. Full-bodied and highly flavourful for the style – certainly one of the best amber ales out there.
