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.

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.

tricksta_p (3258) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is rich caramel malt, biscuit, hops, pine resin, toffee, ripe fruits, bit toasted. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet and nicely bitter. Long bittersweet finish. Body is above medium. Nicely bittersweet Barley Wine-ish hoppy Amber Ale, good stuff.

Bottle into glass. Pours hazy amber with medium tan head. Aroma is strongly of hops with a long, strongly bitter finish. Probably the most bitter beer I’ve enjoyed to date.

polo_marco (302) - milton, Vermont, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Sweet malt some wood scent and smells of dark fruits. Dark reddish brown color with small off white head bit of lacing. Taste of sweet malts dark dank fruit with super bitter finish. Medium body with light carbonation. Very sticky for elder ale but love the complexity and it’s something different. Nice work.

DeliriumT (469) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2016
Pours dark brown. Aroma hits you in the face with dank hops. Very sweet bouquet. Flavour is full but very full on. Not perfectly balanced. Quite bitter but very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

June 20th, 2014 - The writers back at Eviltwin’s Brewery are doing top notch work on these labels, setting an environment and attitude for the beer before the head is even pierced by a top lip. And once out, the aroma tumbles forward with all the classic double IPA scents, heavy and sweet, but leaning more towards pine and oak. It is even more robust than many double IPAs in my review archive, and I like it, strong but poised. The flavor is a little less balanced, with a much more bitter approach. The bitterness takes over after a quick puff of sweetness on the front, and stays there, slightly stronger with each sip. I would have preferred a slightly tweaked balance, but for $3.55 I am pleased.
