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.

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.

Bottle. Pours cloudy brown. Big head. Nose is candy sugar. Taste is very sweet. I need to find this again and try it.

StefanSD (2014) - Lakeside, California, USA - APR 15, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a small biege head that has good retention. The aroma showcases ripe grapefruit and some musty melons. The taste is bitter hops forward with grapefruit and pine set in a malt base that has caramel and a bit of cocoa. The palate seems just a bit gritty and the carbonation is lively. Finishes long and bitter. overall: Decent beer.

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - APR 12, 2014
Pours a deep amber with a creamy off white lacing head. Aroma of caramel., citrusy and herbal notes. Flavor of tea, caramel and mixed citrusy hop notes.

drsordr (890) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle pour dark amber brown with lots of floaters. Nose light citrus and lots of caramel malt. Slight vegetal. Taste bitter up front, followed by minerality and malt. Mostly caramel and toffee. Hops only coming through in bitterness. Maybe a bad sample, not very enjoyable.

Scrapersnbeer (1431) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2014
Very strong grapefruit aroma, dirty malt underneath. Stained deck lumber brown. Sharp bitter flavor with a resinous bathed, semi-sweet malt contrast. Like a much lighter version of the black IPA’s flavor wise. A little sticky, not too carbonated, but very dry finish. The most bitter amber ale I can remember.

Leafs93 (1603) - Dunmore, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Pours burnt orange with a medium off white head. Aroma is citrus, resin and a touch of caramel. Taste is bittersweet with a sticky finish, more of the malts come through on taste then aroma. Medium bodied with lingering bitters.

unclemike (2180) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Deep golden color, hazy, with a huge white head, lasting well. Fresh very hoppy fruity pine aroma. Good mouthfeel. Flavour is fresh and hoppy, fruity, piney, dry and bitter. Well lasting dry bitter finish.

OPIE788 (259) - Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber color with a lasting tan head. Bright floral hop aroma. Nice floral hop flavor up front with a slight malt backbone and a bitter hop finish. Really nice beer.

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 14, 2014
12 oz. bottle just short of 4 weeks from the bottle date. Cold stored. It pours a dark amber red color with a tall, orange head. The aroma is full with dark maltiness, subtle brown sugar, pine, floral hops and mild pineapple. The flavor is very hop forward and bitter with pine and dank with strong, almost inky bitterness and enough malt sweetness to back it up. The subtle hop fruitiness melds well with the sweet, fruity malt. The finish is a bit too punishingly bitter for my tastes, but otherwise this is a fine amber that packs a big punch.

BOSSbrewer (1308) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Pours a clear amber with three fingers of fluffy off white head. Aroma is grapefruit and pine. Flavor is hoppy bitterness. Caramel. Balanced. Medium bodied. Nice beer.
