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.

Yorker (1344) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2014
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark amber with some sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are resin, pine, and grapefruit - with a bitter finish.

esox (1110) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2014
Bottled. Cloudy amber color, thick whipped cream head. Really fresh aroma ja citrusy and floral hop juices, pine creamy caramel and a touch of toasted nutty, slightly chocolatey malts. Really bitter, resinous bitterness dominates. Caramelly malts are well balanced. Some toasted grain notes add complexity. Delicious finish is a mixture of caramel and strongly resinous hop flavour. Medium body, smooth texture. Well done!

TBone (12991) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle at Rotterdam, Helsinki. Dark red-brown color, good creamy beige head. Aroma has lots of resin and piney. Medium-bodied to full-bodied. Lots of resin, almost licorice saltyness because of heavy bitterness. Some alcohol. Simple maltyness. Good but heavy stuff. And of course this is not "amber ale" but ipa/dipa.

egg (98) - USA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle on 8/11/14. Pours a dark amber/brown with a fluffy just off white head. Nose is hoppy like an IPA (more than many), citrus, pine. Taste is sweet, some caramel, tropical fruit, followed by some strong grapefruit bitterness. Really yummy.

Part of an IPA tasting platter. Good beer, but expected much better. 7% is not that high, but this one definitely tasted boozy. Do they use some sugar to up the alcohol? I can understand that with 8% plus beer, but this did not need to be so. It took away from the very nice nose that set the expectations high. Again, this is a good beer, but could be much better.

Bottle. Toffee malt and hay aroma. Brown with small head. Lightly sweet caramel malt and moderate bitter herbal/grass flavor. Nice.

JohnnyJ (4546) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber pour, with an off white head. Caramel, toffee, malty, sweetness, mild citrus, and finishes very sharp and bitter. High bitterness. I’m not enjoying it too much.

Pours opaque brown with an ever so slightly off white head. Light lacing. Aromas are a blend of piney hops and caramel malts. Again the tastes are an almost perfect blend of pine and caramel. Overall this is one of the most balanced beers I have drunk in quite some time. Maybe ever. Seriously.

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Very nice beer whatever style it is. Poured with a large long-lasting cream-colored head, plenty of lace, and hazy to cloudy dark amber color. Aroma is quite mild with Hop toffee and malt. Flavor is like aroma but much stronger and more rich. Excellent body. Super drinking beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
