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.

probstblueribbon (3700) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep copper with floaties and a full reddish-tan head. Aroma: Strong peppery, dank, dark hops, nice rich caramel/toffee malt, so peppery and dank. Palate: Medium+ body, fairly soft carbonation Flav.: More of the same...very spicy and peppery, dank, caramel, toffee and burnt sugar, blood orange too; off-dry with big bitterness and a long, richly malty and peppery finish.

Serious stuff!

Turboninja (478) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Strong, bit too sweet and bold aroma with peach, caramel and floral hops. Dark brown/orange with light natural white head. Strong taste with peach, mango, pine and caramel. The amount of hops changes the taste to somewhat sweet and also palate feels like soft sugary ball rolling in your mouth. Medium taste spectrum and looong aftertaste with pine and guess...hops. Full/medium palate with medium/low carbonation. Slightly watery on background. Overall, bit too sweet, other vice perfect!

Dark mahogany body, offwhite head. Cookie caramel malt, some herbal dark hoppiness. Flavour is intense, much hops and malts.

domienS (250) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - NOV 27, 2014
Pours a clear red brown beer with a medium, fine, beige head. Smells piny, hoppy, some caramel, some grass, small chocolate hint. Tastes really bitter. Leaves a bitter palate, very full and non alcoholic beer. Great beer but a little to piny for me.

Garrold (4111) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Hazy, thick amber. Loads of yeasty lumps. Filmy, off white head. Huge, chewy, resinous, minty, fusty orange hop. Equally big, caramel, grainy, toffee malts. Ripe banana thing going on, not to any detriment. Bit of soy sauce. Taste is chewy sweet. Light dry. Big, resinous, piny bitter. This is tasty stuff. Palate is heavy, oily, and chewy. Finishes big, resinous, piny bitter, with a sickly sweet close, that matches well. Very reminiscent of Dirty Bastard, but with a pile of greasy hops on top. Really tasty. Sort of beer you need to be in the mood for, mind you. Lovely.

Tide (2927) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from Alko. Brown color, beige head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, floral hops, pine, mango and resin. Bitter finish with grapefruit, hops and pine. Very nice hoppy brew, although pretty far from amber ales in terms of color and taste.

blipp (8030) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Draft. Pours copper with an off white head. Sweet toffee malts, plenty of flowery bitterness, and lighter toasted bready notes. Not bad.

S_Side_Smitty (704) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Pours red-brown with a thin white head - tons of yeast floating around in this one. Atypical red ale aroma with sweet smelling malts. True to name, this is a nice red ale flooded with bitter piney hops. The hops hit you immediately then the syrupy and malty sweetness kicks in for the mid. Finish is bitter, bitter, bitter. While the flavors to me are not specific, this red ale is awesome - especially for hop lovers.
