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

From bottle. A deep red-amber with a thin off-white head. The aroma is grapefruit, caramel, resin, pine. A dense flavour profile of grapefruit, caramel malt, pine, medium sweetness. A dry and very bitter finish. Brings some class to the style.

islay (1054) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2014
2 oz. or smaller pour, from a 12 oz. bottle at St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Consumed on 6-7-14. Pours a hazy brown/amber with taupe/beige head. Honey sweet aroma features scents of resin and pine. Alcohol noticeable in the aroma. Quite dry, piney, dull taste. Pineapple flavor. Soft in the palate. Medium body. Not bad, but it bores me.

rbrazell (1568) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from CBX. Very deep amber pour with a bubbly off white head. Resiny, dank hoppiness with notes of pine with a balanced caramel malt back bone in the nose. Malt balance falls out on the tongue with more bitter dank hops spilling onto the palate. Medium bodied and smooth carbonation. One of the only good ones for this very boring style.

maneliquor (2989) - 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

pintbypint (2537) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
12oz brown bottle. Amber pour, a bit unclear with some floaties. Creamy tan head, good lacing. Nose has citrus, pine and caramel. Taste has some caramel, earth, citrus and pine. Finish is earthy and piney. Bitterness lingers. Medium body. A nice hoppy amber.

Osprey87 (1362) - WALES - 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.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice easy drinking Amber ale. Big alcohol flavor this was flavorful. Interesting and easy beer.

Cirrhosis (1192) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (7895) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2014
Keg at the Cask, Pimlico, 27/05/14. Hazed marmalade orange/dark amber with a well appointed beige covering that retains well. Nose is caramel malt, bitter hops, light booze, red grapefruit, bitter citric rhythm. Taste is caramel malt forward, pine coating, bitter grapefruit, candied sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the close. Solid hoppy amber.
