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 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.

Leighton (9883) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2013
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.

50belair (1857) - Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle. Amber pour with a white head. Unbalanced with bitter medicinal hops running the show. Decent body and carbonation. A little on the dry and in my opinion in need of a more substantial malt backbone.

brnandersen (1672) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 19, 2013
66 cl. bottle, brewed by Westbrook Brewing. Dark, amber colour with a huge, dense lightly tan head. Fruity aroma with citrus, pines, grapefruit and, floral hops. Rich caramel and chocolate malts. Taste is bitter. Medium body, creamy texture. Finishes bitter with citrus fruits, resins and rich malts. Very nice amber.

pinkie (427) - New York, USA - APR 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2013 Poured cloudy, dark caramel brown with a super tall head that would not fall. Left craggy rocky lace. Frothy and sticky. Nose is pine and grapefruit, deep caramel malt, brown sugar and as it warms some nuts and pear. Nose is delightfully sweet and tempting. Taste is piney, nutty, caramel, dry toast. Pear and fruits all sensualize the perfect toasted sugar and bitter that caress the palate in the finish. A little alcohol and char. Ends dry with a touch of oily resin and a lasting sweetness that stays right under the bitter. This was a real treat.

Color: dark brown beer with medium carbonization and medium ivory head. Smell: hops, spices, malt, barley, caramel. Taste: strong taste of hops with nice malt. Amazing complexity. Aftertaste: hops, wet bitterness, and malt.

CanIHave4Beers (2911) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 4, 2013
Pours a deep red with a big loose-ish head and lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma has lots of rich caramel & a light roastiness... Kind of herbal and citrusy but not especially hop focused in the nose, much more about big malt character.

The flavor is not as sweet as it smells, it’s plenty bitter, and has some nice piney hop flavor. The malt is pretty dominant here as well, some light chocolate, some nice caramel... but not really in an annoying or over sweet kind of way.

The palate is prickly and overall this is an enjoyable beer.

Prokroustis (668) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - APR 4, 2013
Dark murky red/brown doby with a rocky light brown head. Strong hoppy aroma with pine, grapefruit, bread, toast, caramel, brown sugar. Full body, ideal carbonation. Great heavy bitter flavour with lots of pine, grapefruit, as well as brown sugar, peach and a hint of chocolate in the sweet undertone. Great.

May 2012. Pours copper color form the bottle with a tan head. Aromas are resin, caramel, spice and grapefruit. The finish has a little sweetness blended in with the bitter tones.
