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.

Davros (2029) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 27, 2014
Pours dark amber with a small head. Nose shows sweet caramel malt with a bit of a bready note. Some spicy and piny hops. More rich malt as a flavour. Loads of pine and spicy hop again. Finishes with an aggressive, sharp bitterness. Great moderately high carbonation.

RexTalionis (2614) - FINLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle. Deep copper with thick off-white head. Sweet ripe berries, bit of maltyness, sweet tea leafs, bit vinous notes. Somehow like dipa in a way actually. Nice though. Sweet berries with bit of bitter greens, blood grapefruit and hints of damp smokyness in taste. More of dipa sweetness towards the finish with lots of muted but quite nice hoppy notes coming through.

Marstonlad (468) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours reddish brown with a little head. The aroma displays citrus fruitiness with some tropical notes; orange, zest and pine feature. Taste is initially sweetish, later drier. Hoppiness is strong and the bitterness medium to heavy in strength. The initial sweet maltiness makes the overall impression similar to double IPAs. Dry, very bitter, grapefruit-flavoured finish. The palate is medium to full bodied, the carbonation moderate and the texture oily. Overall a very potent amber ale that is closer to DIPAs than its style counterparts.

suprchunk (2342) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Dark, hazy, chunky brown pour. Small off white head. Little lacing. Piney aroma with some nutty malt notes. Bitter up front. Malty and piney. A bit of a bitter resin-like bite in the back.

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 20, 2014
On tap @ 10 East - Aroma - pine needles, grassy with some floral hops lurking around Appearance - clooudy amber body, 3-finger off-white head, good retention, average lacing Mouthfeel - medium bodied, medium carbonation Flavor - grapefruity bitterness, medium caramel malts with some cashew like flavors. Finish seems more lemony than anything. Overall - good hop profile through out the beer, no flaws picked out. Nothing extraordinary, but a good beer.

Ratman197 (10208) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2014
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a hazy reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, grapefruit, pine and light earthiness. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, grapefruit and light pine with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

thornecb (4539) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Pours dark amber into a snifter. Soapy head recedes leaving spider lacing. Stale caramel aromas. Thick and juicy with caramel and dark resin upfront turning to nutty toffee before the earthy bitter finish. Brewed 6 months ago....perhaps a little too much age on this one.

dwyerpg (4652) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 28, 2014
This is super hoppy in the first sip but is also incredibly dry. The Amber Malts just don’t quite mix right with the dryness. Not what I hoped for.

elbernays (625) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 28, 2014
Pours deep ruby red with off white foam head. Aroma is full on - grass, wood, blue cheese, feet, nut, vegetable. Flavour is mild chewy toffee sweetness, with bitter cabbage water finish. Dry wood earthy aftertaste. Lots of body and full of flavour. Nice.

"Talk about a blending of styles. I expected an iPa til I poured and a rather thick darker shade of brown ale came out. Hoppy, yes. Malty, yes. Tons of roast, pine, spruce, a hint of toffee and grapefruit. Very interesting beer. Hard to class. I put this in as a brown, because, well, it’s brown. BA has it as a brown. RB has it as an amber (shouldn’t it be amber or red if it’s classed as an amber?) and others have it as an iPa. Idunno. Put it where you like, I say it’s a decent hoppy brown."
