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.

Good head, off white, great lacing, dark brown. Sweet hoppy aroma. A little sweet, nice bitter finish. Really smooth and very easy to drink.

Bomber. Very opaque mid brown and inviting looking. A substantial tan head. Big malts in the nose with hops right behind. They are all over the place with complexity. Hops hit the taste buds first with an all out assault. Huge citrus bites, just huge. Bitterness is almost off the chart. All of that malt is just over powered here. Thete is so much here to like and nothing to dislike. My only knock is that it is so over done.

[500ml bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk] Slightly hazy reddish amber. Piney hop aroma. Nice body for 7%, more caramel on the flavour than the aroma. The trouble is, after a while it becomes sugar and not much else. Needs work on the balance, I think [06072012]

Wow, fantastic beer. A brown pour with khaki head around the edges. The aroma is solid hops, but with a nutty base. The taste follows with warming hops blended wonderfully into a nutty brown ale base. Some bitterness, some hop brightness and pineyness, Medium mouthfeel, and easily drinkin’. Enjoyed this one - its my kind of beer.

DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Draft at Thirsty monk. Pours brown with an a quarter inch of khaki foam that leaves a slight amount of lacing. Nice hoppiness on the nose that becomes more prominent as it warms. Lots of hops on the tongue with a small hint of roast malt that comes through in the finish. Interesting interpretation of the style.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2012
In bottle. Pours a dark golden amber colour with a thin beige head. A lovely hoppy aroma of pine, pineapple, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2012
500ml bottle from Ridgewood Wine & Beer, Raleigh. Thick pour, dark orange and creamy looking, quite potent. Malts and tea in the nose, almost like a downshifted Double Bastard. Body was a little odd, somewhat oily in places, gritty in others (especially the finish). Excessive tea and grass in the flavors, making the beer seem a bit too disjointed overall.

Huge, very fine & dense yellow-cream head, turning fluffy over well-carbonated, fully hazy amber beer. Punch of beautiful C-hops, citrussy; cakey background with waffle syrup; dry hopbales. Some dark malts, (chocolate)cake or waffles, and a hoppy-bitter-citrussy finish. Dark fruit too, as slighlty unripe black plums; breadcrust. Feels quite carbonated, viscous and (hop)oily. At least medium bodied. Quite good balance, the hopoverdose notwithstanding. Nice one. Let it be bitter - I always preferred Lisdoonvarna on Roskilde anyway...
