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.

Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the close. Solid hoppy amber.

12oz bottle. Dark red/copper color. Aroma is malt and pine hops. Taste could be better balanced, as pine hops dominate some citrus and some malt sweetness. Still, it’s quite pleasant. I swear there’s some rye in there based on the spiciness. A very good beer, definitely a sipper due to the intensity of the pine hops.

kbudd19 (571) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle. Red amber pour with three fingers of thick creamy head. Hoppy aroma, malty sweetness, some pine, some citrus this does not smell like a dull amber. Taste, lots of hops, but not overbearing, some malty sweetness, some lemon citrus, and a crisp clean finish that is not overly bitter. Overall, its not your typical amber but good lord this is tasty, loaded with flavour and very refreshing, I could drink a lot of this on a nice summer night.

harrisoni (13565) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2014
On tap at Mother Kellys London. Clear mahogany colour lasting dark beige head. Amber malts give balance and a little sweetness to the big hops. I’ve always liked this American Amber style of beer. Some light coffee in the malt. Decent bitterness on the finish. Maybe not super fresh here and I can imagine fresh its amazing. Certainly bitter and hoppy balanced with some good malt. Just a little oxidised by the journey maybe. Good hop burp on the finish.

blankboy (6018) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a dark amber with an average size lasting frothy beige head. Some lacing. Nice catty, hempy aroma, resiny, citrusy and spicy as well, along with bready malt, light alcohol, some fruit, grain and light vegetal notes. Hoppy flavour along with caramel malt, some alcohol, grain and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied. Didn’t blow me away but pretty good.

reebtogi (4144) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
355ml bottle pours a hazy amber brown color with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains with flowery and herbal notes. Taste is a bold grapefruit and pine bitterness with a grainy malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Big on flavor, this is not a typical amber ale, I rather enjoyed sampling this one.

DrSilverworm (6282) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2014
On tap at Dutch’s. Keg filled 4/8. First pour from the keg is very hazy amber brown color. Lots of thick clouds of yeast in the body. Thin bit of off-white head, leaves some loose bits of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Some caramel malt aroma, some toasty malt, and spicy hop malt flavor, lightly earthy hop. Light bit of floral citrus, but overall the hop profile is predominantly resiny and spicy. Bigger bitter taste. Light sweetness. Ok bitter hoppy amber ale. Indeed, hops show more in bitterness than aroma. Interesting, assertive stuff, though.
