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.

Bottle in Minneapolis picked up in KC. Pours a bit hazy reddish brown appearance with a brown head. Chocolate, light caramel, somewhat piney, fairly spicy, decently fresh aroma. A little chewy, toffee, brown sugar, caramel, somewhat piney/woody hoppy flavor. Not super fresh but not bad.

coldbrewky (1431) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle supplied by UDBeernut in not so surprising visit. Barleywine nose. Body of Newt. Malt malt hops. Elastic body. Mellow and understated. Make me wanna dance like Art.

UDBeernut (1822) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle split with some doucher. Pours amber with a supple tan head. Nose is of major malt, caramel, slight nod to pine. Taste follows this mold with a body that is full. To me, this, is a beer that is like SN Bigfoot Light.

Bottle at Borefts 2012 - Bodegraven. Pours cloudy amber with a creamy beige head. Rich pine and caramel in the nose. Big sweet flavor with sticky, piney hops, ripe fruit, dry caramel. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sturdy resinous finish with loads more pine, ripe berries, further caramel. Pretty nice amber ale.

50belair (2456) - Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle. Amber pour with a white head. Unbalanced with bitter medicinal hops running the show. Decent body and carbonation. A little on the dry and in my opinion in need of a more substantial malt backbone.

brnandersen (2011) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 19, 2013
66 cl. bottle, brewed by Westbrook Brewing. Dark, amber colour with a huge, dense lightly tan head. Fruity aroma with citrus, pines, grapefruit and, floral hops. Rich caramel and chocolate malts. Taste is bitter. Medium body, creamy texture. Finishes bitter with citrus fruits, resins and rich malts. Very nice amber.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - APR 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2013 Poured cloudy, dark caramel brown with a super tall head that would not fall. Left craggy rocky lace. Frothy and sticky. Nose is pine and grapefruit, deep caramel malt, brown sugar and as it warms some nuts and pear. Nose is delightfully sweet and tempting. Taste is piney, nutty, caramel, dry toast. Pear and fruits all sensualize the perfect toasted sugar and bitter that caress the palate in the finish. A little alcohol and char. Ends dry with a touch of oily resin and a lasting sweetness that stays right under the bitter. This was a real treat.

Color: dark brown beer with medium carbonization and medium ivory head. Smell: hops, spices, malt, barley, caramel. Taste: strong taste of hops with nice malt. Amazing complexity. Aftertaste: hops, wet bitterness, and malt.
