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.

bigwesticle (37) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Appearance is probably my favorite part of the beer... nice reddish brown pour with an almost pinkish head. Good hop smell initially but the roasty malt comes through as well as it opens up. Smells like Stone SSR. Roasty bread and subtle hops, mostly caramel malts. Decent stuff.

andrepintado (2140) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle from beergium. I think the cap had a problem. Dark copper color. No head. Medium sweetness, low bitterness. Aroma is malty, hoppy, spicy. Must retaste.

ciocanelu (353) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 9, 2015
Murky, dark amber color with beige head. Caramel and some earthy hops, sweet at first but gets pretty bitter in the finish and lingers in the aftertaste. Not bad but nothing really special.

gegwilson (2379) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle in Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Deep amber with a nice big frothy cream head. Fruity aroma with peachy notes. The flavour is spicy with rye, toffee, stewed fruit and pine hop. Bitter finish. Tasty.

martin00sr (1809) - Haderslev, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2015
Hazy dark amber, with beige froth. Strong hop and caramel aroma. Flavour has solid bitterness along with floral hops and caramel, even hints of licorice. Long and very bitter finish. Dry and medium bodied. Good one.

IslandHaole (1159) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Green hops, floral with pine and cookie dough sweet malt. Hazy caramel colored with tan head. Sweeter malt up front with toffee flavors quickly give way to bitter hops that seem to get even more bitter the longer it stays in your mouth. An Amber Ale that has OD’ed on IBUs! Has a minerally aftertaste, almost like putting a penny in your mouth.

Psytron (1633) - Turku, FINLAND - OCT 5, 2015
Smell of hops, mango, grass. Deep bronze colour, high beige head. Aroma of hops, spruce. Very bitter. Dry palate, flat carbon. Doesn’t taste like an amber ale, doesn’t look like an amber ale. But good nonetheless.

jamestulloch (2462) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Ruby body with a thin off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma of candy, pine, burnt sugar and stewed tea. Flavour is both rich and bitter - notes of wood, candy, caramel and juicy hops. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A really good beer, delicious flavour. Would love to try on cask.

minutemat (2911) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2015
355ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours deep brown with moderate tanned head. Aroma is hoppy resin and malt. Taste is true to the cause. Amber malts, hoptastic and a bit sticky in a good way.

Kita (1596) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours clear brown with medium creamy tan-like head, soft visible carbonation and many floating yeast particles. Aroma of mango, papaya, passion fruit, berries, caramel, pine with mild medicinal note. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel and toasted malt, follows by dried fruits acidity with grassy notes, warming mouthfeel and heavy bitter finish. Full body, creamy texture and lively carbonation in palate. Bold, bitter and brutal...

tia (1433) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle lurking in the back of the fridge. Copper color with decent head but lots of floaters. Smells of caramel and indistinct bitterness. Initial flavor is kind of off sweet, which is not so good. The underlying bitterness is nice.
