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.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - JAN 31, 2014
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.

mansquito (3416) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 17, 2014
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.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2014
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.

Cybercat (3341) - Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Comes out of the tap an opaque coffee brown with Avery thick tan head. A amber ale? Aroma is not strong but malty with a hint of caramel. Flavor is far better than what the aroma promises, malty and hoppy with firm caramel, earthy and nutty notes. Firm mouthfeel is quite lively and fizzy. Flood your palate with this one.

vyvvy (4000) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Pours murky amber with a beige head. The aroma has mushy toasty malt, baked bread, dry caramel, floral / perfume-like hops and some tropical fruit. It has a medium rough body with some minor abrasive carbonation. The flavor starts out with piny, floral and citrusy hops bursting out. There is also a good amount of dry toasted malt that comes off like dark baked bread that balances off the assertive hoppiness. The finish has resiny citrusy hops and dark bread sticking to the tongue and mouth. Really nicely done.

1FastSTi (3336) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Tap. Amber body with a creamy and rocky tan head and awesome lacing. Light pine aroma. The flavor is grapefruit and pine with some earthy dank. Juicy and yet lightly resinous. The palate is bitter and quenching.

sagmarium (75) - SPAIN - OCT 19, 2013
A murky dark amber ale with a thin brown head. In aroma, a nice biscuit malt with light vinous notes, close to a barley wine, with musky floral hops, very nice. In mouth, a sweet caramel vinous malt with grassy and floral hops, light orange pulp and mint...veering into barley wine territory, with nice treacles.
