4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is malt, candy, hops, tropical fruit and pine. Appearance is reddish brown, light brown head. Taste is very malty, much like a barleywine, but finishes with a crazy ass bitterness like over-steeped black tea. Mouthfeel is medium body and crisp carbonation, a very bitter aftertaste. Overall, this is a beer that doesn’t know what to call itself. Decent, but weird.

355ml bottle from Cornelius. Pours murky amber-brown with a thin clotted cream head. Massive resinous hop aromas, plus caramel. Taste is very bitter, as you might expect, some almost tea-like tannins. More resin. Oily mouthfeel, but the massive bitterness cuts through it. Long bitter linger.

When I cracked this sucker open, I thought I was heading for an IPA. It calls itself an Amber yet despite the darker than average colour and provocative malt presence, this here is an IPA-ish creature that I am glad exists. Lots of brown bread, toffee and cracker malt snap unionize with punchy citrus and floral hops. Brazenly bitter to boot, Hop Flood smacks of audacious flavours and wrestles a bad mood with it’s 7% ABV. Head for days on this pup, lacing all the way.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a clouded dark brown with a one-finger light tan frothy head that retained well and laced OK. Carbonation medium and fine. Aroma of slightly sweet caramel, faint molasses, slightly roasted malts and no obvious alcohol. Taste initially sweet then passes quickly to a moderate to strong persistent bitterness; alcohol well hidden. Medium body. Creamy mouthfeel. Smooth and clean with a lingering moderate bitterness.

Bottle at Brooklyn Diner. Sharp hop bite, plenty of citrus, grapefruit, nectarine, lime, minty notes, solid caramel malt base, dry hoppy finish. A very flavorful hoppy amber, maybe a tad boozy but nice treat for hopheads.
