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.

Bottle at Brooklyn Diner. Sharp hop bite, plenty of citrus, grapefruit, nectarine, lime, minty notes, solid caramel malt base, dry hoppy finish. A very flavorful hoppy amber, maybe a tad boozy but nice treat for hopheads.

Vells (1404) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - JAN 7, 2016
Lovely amber with enough grapefruity hoppy kick, lovely malt background, caramel. Moderate to light sweetness with moderate bitterness, quite dry finish. Solid all the way

Ananasa hopsis ar iesala noti, saldes aromatā, bet garšā nedaudz savelk lūpiņas. :DD Patīkams

Well - buyer beware. I just noticed that this was bottled almost a year and a half ago. I gotta look at the bottles closer. The silver lining here is that the beer is still pretty good. My eyes are drying out. Bitter bitter bite, caramel, pine, spicy peaches, this is really fucking bitter. It’s got heat and tastes like a rye ipa. Time to play Galaga.

Love this hopped up Amber. Drinks like an IPA but loaded with notes of caramel and toast

eduardovl (1302) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 24, 2015
330ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a deep and slightly cloudy amber color forming a small but solid and cream tan head with excellent retention forming lots of thin and lingering lacings in the glass. S: Flowery and malty. Sweet caramel. Strong notes of resin and pine. Grapefruit and zest. T: Slightly sweet upfront that becomes quickly quite bitter. Strong bittersweet balance. Persistent bitterness. Strong notes of caramel malts and grapefruit. Great hops profile, a mix of pine, resin, orange zest, grass and hop cone flowers. M: Medium to heavy body. Average carbonation. Strong malty bittersweet aftertaste. Strong notes of pine and toffee. Persistent bitterness. O: Great drinkability. Excellent Amber Ale. Strong hops character.

douglas88 (8091) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2015
12 ounce bottle from Uptown Market. Pours a somewhat cloudy reddish hue, a big layer of sediment on the bottom. A big caramel and toffee nose. The flavor is soft citrus, big caramel, low bitterness though a very hoppy amber. Some toast. Quite easygoing. Solid. Four years ago this would have really stood out a ton.

Carolust (1) - Oaxaca, MEXICO - DEC 17, 2015 does not count
From bottle at some village in Puebla, Mex. Very kinda heavy hop flavor, not really an Amber Ale as tagged. Aromas of Peach, Passion fruit, some Mango and of course a carnival of hops dancing all around your glass and tongue..., Surprisely not a sweet beer like others from Evil Twin...!!!!
