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.

Poured from bottle into tulip: Pours amber with a nice white head with decent lacing. Aroma of slight caramel, resin, floral, and malt. Flavor is very dry resin / pine hops, a tiny bit of sweetness, and almost no trace of an amber caramel that I was expecting. It really is a nice European style dry resiny IPA, but I’m not getting the amber-type notes that I would expect (think Nugget Nectar or Red Wheelbarrow). Good beer but could have been great.

Bottle. Amber with lots of floaty bits big light tan head and great lace. Aroma is strong earthy and spicy hops...more English I was expecting. Flavor follows with deep and round bitterness dominating light fruity sweetness. There’s a soapiness throughout. Feel is watery and not so lively but the bitterness is mouthwatering. As labelled.

Such love for this beer. It’s a mega US-style amber with loads of fantastic hop flavours and might be more correctly called an imperial IPA. The hops are so very, very smooth

12 oz bottle from Redmonds. Dark copper amber, huge frothy off white head. resiny, syrupy pine nose. Flavour follows the nose, sharp bitter hops. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Nice balance of bitter hops and sweet malt in the finish.

Not completely convinced on this one. Looks like an amber. And if try real hard, you can get some amber ale flavor as well. But otherwise, this is more of a resin-forward hop bomb, bitter like a stronger IPA. If it had less resin-ness and a bit less syrupy mouthfeel, I would like it more.

The aroma makes me think of cheese and crackers. The hop flavors and big head are pleasing although I found the palate a little oily for my tastes. Over all a very fine beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Aroma is lots of grain with a sour grain bite in the finish. The bitter is all in the taste but it’s more of a sour bitter than a hoppy bitter. Closer to sour tea. Interesting but a little off putting.

Keg @ Drygate. Dark brown, not much head. Resin aroma. Strong sweet hop & malt flavour. Bitter sweet caramel malt aftertaste. A strong American style bitter.
