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.

TheHOFF43 (1771) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle shared by adnielsen. Pours a cloudy dirty red. Caramel shines through for sure, some hops as well. Sweeter than anticipated, decent hops on the tongue.

Dark copper in color with a huge foamy tan head. Malty, nutty, and a bit sweet with an earthy feel. Fairly dry, hoppy, and a bit bitter in the finish. Nicely balanced.

RW80 (1156) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2015
12 OZ bottle. Appearance: Murky amber pour with a small off white head. Aroma: Piney hops, resin and caramel Taste: MOderate sweet caramel with quite some piney bitterness, also resin and som citrus. The finish however contains also some cofee and roasted tones which add further bitterness to the allready piney bittereness. Medium body, average carbonation. Decent Amber ale but for me to unbalanced and focussed on bitterness.

tomekk1978 (811) - Ząbki, POLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Aromat: tosty, karmel, melanoidyny, lekkie utlenienie. Są także nuty chmielowe w postaci owoców tropikalnych i niewielki alkohol. Barwa: mocno bursztynowa, raczej czerwona, w stronę miedzi. początkowo względnie klarowna, choć z niewielkimi drobinkami. Piana ecru, drobno pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanej wielkości i względnie trwała. Ładnie oblepia szkło. Smak: wyraźne nuty słodowe - karmel, tosty, melanoidyny, jednak z niewielką słodyczą. Jest natomiast lekko kwaskowy posmak, chmielowa kontra i alkoholowa nuta. Goryczka w okolicach średniej, drażniąca, ale niezbyt długa. Pełnia średnia plus, umiarkowane do wysokiego wysycenie, odrobinę szczypiące w język, trochę śliskie odczucie na języku i alkoholowo-goryczkowy finisz.

procraste (124) - FRANCE - APR 29, 2015
Faut pas déconner ... Il s’agit bien d’une IPA ou alors mon palais a bien pâli ! Assez asséchante et pointue en attaque ... Finalement agréable mais pas d’un abord aisé. Une petite pointe de rondeur ( Ha ha !! ) ne serait pas de refus ! Une certaine complexité que j’ai du mal à décrire ... Un côté résineux aussi.
