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.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99 (Sept. ’12). Pours a hazy brown amber color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor are herbal, earthy, some fruity character, peel, toasted caramel. Finish has some grassy bitterness. Probably should have some more hop pop if you are going to call it Hop Flood.

rejtable (1138) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
Interesting. Pours murky brown and initially gushed after opening. Huge head that takes forever to dissipate and clumpy many finger beige lacing. Nose is candi sugar and rubber bands. Notes of candi sugar, some caramel, some raisin, resin. Taste is medium sweet and med/heavy bitterness that lasts a bit. Creamy body with an acidic bite and well carbonated.

Aroma is strong tropical fruit/kiwi, mild/medium sweetness and spices. The flavor is spicy yeast, tropical fruit, citrus, mild grapefruit/hop resin notes, malts, mild sweetness/sugar and a tangy/slightly sweet finish. One of the better Evil Twin offerings I’ve had.

Lubiere (9427) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
A murky dark amber ale with a thin brown head. In aroma, a nice biscuit malt with light vinous notes, close to a barley wine, with musky floral hops, very nice. In mouth, a sweet caramel vinous malt with grassy and floral hops, light orange pulp and mint...veering into barley wine territory, with nice treacles.

TheHOFF43 (1672) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle shared by adnielsen. Pours a cloudy dirty red. Caramel shines through for sure, some hops as well. Sweeter than anticipated, decent hops on the tongue.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2013
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 (1411) - 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 (1474) - Near Buffalo, New York, 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.
