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.

mcberko (5368) - 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.

TheRealMGD (549) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle from 99. Cloudy brown pour with a short, brief beige head leaving moderate lace. Nose is mostly medium-roast malt, dark fruit and pine hops – like a hoppy barleywine. Medium-heavy body with light, fine carbonation. Mouth feel is smooth and somewhat heavy for an amber. Dark fruit, pine, chocolate, grapefruit, walnuts, dates and toffee. Finish is medium, mostly sweet but with some grapefruit. Quite good, with a great malt profile, but a bit on the dark/heavy side in aromas and the hops are too attenuated after the journey.

luttonm (2069) - Belgrade, SERBIA - SEP 7, 2012
Draft at The Pine Box, Seattle. Deep rose amber, tan foamy head. Big worty, boil of hops and oil. Roasty malt. Big sweet pine hops on first sip. Warming malts. Quite tasty, nice bright beer.

GandGKevin (912) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Toffee and nut aromas. Nutty malty flavors. Not much in the way hops. Overall not bad but also not very hoppy.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2012
This should be called malt flood. Mahogany body with a thin, off white head. Cola like aromatics and the palate shows both nutty, brown and caramel amber characteristics. A bit of hops on the finish. Extremely high carbonation.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 08/30/2012. The beer pours a dark amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and sweet malt. Medium body with flavors of herbal hops, caramel malt and fruit. The finish is hoppy with some resin and malt in the aftertaste. Above average overall.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle. Big muddy pour ... deep, dark and woody. The aroma carries a bit of varnish. This drinks with a gigantic character ... thick, chewy even. The woodsy bitterness is the predominate aspect of this brew ... with a thick-as-stone malt backdrop. Good stuff, worthy. (#4754, 8/30/2012)

Daytonbeer (582) - Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Pours brown with small head. Not impressive to look at, but great to smell and taste. Aroma - toffee, bread, and grapefruit. Taste - brown sugar, citrus hops, pine hops. Very nice.

22oz bottle. Large beige head atop cloudy dark amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, herbal, grapefruit, caramel, light chocolate. Taste is sweet, caramel/bread, grapefruit, spicy/herbal, some chocolate. Medium body, some resin, surprisingly drinkable.
