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.

Cybercat (3475) - 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 (4130) - 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 (3341) - 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.

Marheb (2296) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
Une bière ambrée bouetteuse avec une arôme de céréales et de caramel principalement, pas la bombe houblonnée auquel je m’attendais. Des notes de houblons verts se faufilent mais j’ai pas bien saisi sa personnalité, mes attentes m’ont peut-être corrompues.

joet (2218) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Soft caramel aromas move quickly to pencil eraser cocoas soft bitterness. Lots of oxidative notes. Soft astringency. Rust and apple pie. Evening tang. Dark brown and cloudy. Not sure what’s up here.

alexsdad06 (5864) - Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle shared by Tmoney99 (Sept. ’12). Pours a hazy brown amber color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor are herbal, earthy, some fruity character, peel, toasted caramel. Finish has some grassy bitterness. Probably should have some more hop pop if you are going to call it Hop Flood.

rejtable (1416) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
Interesting. Pours murky brown and initially gushed after opening. Huge head that takes forever to dissipate and clumpy many finger beige lacing. Nose is candi sugar and rubber bands. Notes of candi sugar, some caramel, some raisin, resin. Taste is medium sweet and med/heavy bitterness that lasts a bit. Creamy body with an acidic bite and well carbonated.

wlajwl (4044) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Aroma is strong tropical fruit/kiwi, mild/medium sweetness and spices. The flavor is spicy yeast, tropical fruit, citrus, mild grapefruit/hop resin notes, malts, mild sweetness/sugar and a tangy/slightly sweet finish. One of the better Evil Twin offerings I’ve had.
