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.

Bulk_Carrier (2889) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - DEC 22, 2012
It pours a dark cloudy brown .A foamy one inch off-white head forms and slowly dies to a film coating the top of the pint. Sticky lacing clings around the sides of the nonic. The smell has the hops up front with some light caramel and nuts coming more so in as the beer warms. The taste takes all of the previously mentioned flavors and adds a nice clean sweetness with a tinge of alcohol. The mouthfeel is about a medium with a nice smooth creaminess surrounding the mouth and tongue. This is moderately drinkable. Overall, I like this and would come back to it.

IslandHaole (1137) - 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 (1611) - 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 (2347) - 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.

Kita (1548) - 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 (1346) - 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.
