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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Uma experiência interessantíssima essa Hop Flood: é uma cerveja complexa, que muda bastante ao longo do tempo. A recomendação é beber devagar e sentir essas mudanças (no meu caso, especialmente, ela estava um pouco gelada no começo, o que ressaltou ainda mais essas diferenças)
Cerveja marrom escura. creme bege de média duração. O aroma inicial é intenso, de lúpulo fresco, cítrico, com poucas notas do malte, que vão ficando cada vez mais marcantes, com resíduos de caramelado e açúcar mascavo. O sabor é amargo, com forte presença do lúpulo, doce do malte, frutas escuras. O amadurecimento revela uma presença de madeira e deixa o frutado cada vez mais em segundo plano, sobrando só o amargor e adstringência. É uma cerveja de corpo médio pra alto, com sabor marcante e persistente. Complexa, possui baixa drinkabilidade, mas é uma cerveja extrema.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
