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.

maneliquor (3391) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dirty amber with a thick and sticky khaki head. Nose is resinous with sticky toffee, cooked pineapple, tropical punch juice, and an earthy grassiness. Smells appealing and very hop driven. Taste is much stickier and sweet than the nose alludes to. Very resinous and has a thick toffee like malt base. Booze is on show. Plenty of tang and salt with pineapple and lychee. Very earthy and almost dirty. Ok but not my style of amber

The_Osprey (2785) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2014
Keg at CBC Covent Garden. Murky cloudy red/brown with a small off-white head, very light lacing. Aroma is mostly toffee apple with some fudge and coffee in the background. Body is medium, lowish carbonation, smooth. Taste is rye, coffee, demerara sugar, fried samosa, resin. Nice, but a bit heavy on sweetness and astringency.

Cirrhosis (1248) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
Amber ale?? Really?? Not an strieght up IPA?? Ok sure what ever. Shyt be awsome for an amber (wink, wink it’s an amber not a IPA) Massive hop nose, gum, malty, and all that jazz. Gin and tonic is the shit......its the IPA of high balls. So drinkable!!! Kind of sweet, big bitter lingers. Hops just destroy the flavour if you try really hard you can kind of hit a choco malt. Hops are good, Gin is awsome, this is not an amber.

A very nice near IPA. The amber malts are paired well with the citric acidity of the hops.

edwardbass (613) - Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2014
12oz bottle. Dark red/copper color. Aroma is malt and pine hops. Taste could be better balanced, as pine hops dominate some citrus and some malt sweetness. Still, it’s quite pleasant. I swear there’s some rye in there based on the spiciness. A very good beer, definitely a sipper due to the intensity of the pine hops.
