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 Řlbutikken in Copenhagen and drowned thousands of precious beer – Hop Flood is a bitter tribute to the heroic bottles that didn’t make it.

Garrold (4362) - 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 (3020) - Helsinki, 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.

Draft. Pours copper with an off white head. Sweet toffee malts, plenty of flowery bitterness, and lighter toasted bready notes. Not bad.

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.

Very good looking beer. A thick long lasting head. Deep aroma. I got caught off guard with the bitterness. Wow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Muggus69 (2142) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2014
12oz bottle Nice looking copper body, slight haze, tight beige head. Hop dominant aroma; leafy, unripe tropical fruits, pine & citrus, with a nutty, toffee malt backbone. Sticky resiny texture, drying, perhaps a touch boozy, moderate carbonation. Once again, hops take the upper hand here - sappy, woody, spicy, some tropical fruit comes through. A touch of nutty malt in the mix, somewhat overshadowed, big bitterness lingers. Would be nice to see some more maltiness to this, otherwise quite good - lots of hops!

Toasty, roasty, malty fun! A whole sleigh full of spruce too. Also, it got me lyrically tanked. Two things up.

Dark amber colour, off white pillowy head. Aroma - dank hops, sweaty, citrus, roasty. Taste - bitterness is quite high, earthy roasted malts and some citrus fruit flavours. Ok

NosirIwont (2368) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle. 7.0%. No ’best before’ date; bottled on 04.09.14. Pours a cloudy, deep amber with a tan head. Good lacing. Fat hop aroma, fruity and malty. Bread note as it warms. Heavy flavour; more fat hops, dark fruits and malt, with a light tart note. Rather bitter (pine) hop finish with a lingering alcohol burn and a hint of coffee (!). Overall pretty good; well-balanced with a good hop/bitterness profile: Certainly lives up to its name; not like the last beer I had which claimed to be all about the hops. 07.11.14.
