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.

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2014
330 mL bottle from the Crowfoot Co-op liquor store in Calgary, served in a stem glass. Pours slightly hazy orange-caramel with a small beige head that remains and leaves a trace of lace. The nose has moderate citric, resinous hops paired with English style malts. The flavour is moderately bitter with resin and citrus. Toffee and bready malts come through as well, but are flooded out by the hops. The finish is long and hoppy with prominent spice. On the palate it is medium in body with a dryish, acidic texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a nice hoppy brew with nice resinous notes. 2014-09-10

Bottle@ølhus københavn. Mahogany hazy. Really strong piny resinous nose with a bunch of dark, almost barley wine-y, raisin figsy caramels. Dark sweetness, quite bitter, leaving a pleasent bitter finish, with slightly chocolate caramel burps. Dark bready, foresty herbal. Flavourful, potent.

hawthorne00 (2511) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle. Amber with a large beige head that’s well retained. Aroma of kumquats, grapefruit, pine, bread crusts. Sweet bread crusts and caramel monstered by pine and citrus. Rather bitter at the end, where it’s a little peppery along with the lingering citrus. A bit like Bear Republic Red Rocket.

A great beer. Huge caramel and pine notes in the aroma and flavor. Lots of green and piney flavors backed by a sweet malty bill. Very nice.

Plusieurs particules en suspension, dont des résidus d’houblons, nagent allègrement dans une bière trouble aux teintes ambrées. Une mousse pas tout à fait blanche flotte au-dessus du verre assez longuement. Malgré l’âge de la bouteille (6-7 mois), les houblons frais explosent au nez. En effet, les agrumes et le gazon fraîchement coupé pénètrent les narines sans crier gare. Ces houblons s’activent de nouveau en bouche, en y allant d’une attaque citronnée intense. Les céréales légèrement caramélisées offrent un équilibre intéressant avec l’amertume assez soutenue, spécialement en finale. J’aurais aimé la déguster pus fraîche, mais n’empêche que c’était très agréable.

manuelMTL (136) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
From 355 ml bottle in a tulip glass. Pour is dark, slightly hazy amber with a frothy pale head. Nose is strong bready malt with a hint of chocolate and dark fruits. Smells quite boozy. Pine bitterness punches in with the first sip. Strong bitterness almost like espresso aftertaste. Some grapefruit notes and malty sweetness are there too. It’s amazing how this beer is still highly drinkable with such a dominating bitterness. It definitely deserves the name Hop Flood!

Niksko (370) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2014
Pours a dark amber with some fine off white head. Nose is very fresh and juicy. I get some passionfruit, fresh orange, brown sugar, some biscuity crackeryness. Flavor is very bitter grapefruit, some caramel (regular and a hint of burnt caramel), a good whack of pine. The finish is of pine and grapefruit peel and very bitter. Medium bodied. Stupidly hoppy, with little accents that make it interesting.

Flowery aroma with a caramel color. Malty background with a hop ending. Hops lingers for a long time.
