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.

Good head, off white, great lacing, dark brown. Sweet hoppy aroma. A little sweet, nice bitter finish. Really smooth and very easy to drink.

With a name like Hop Flood, you’d never expect the color this beer shows when poured; a deep muddy amber-brown! You’d also never expect to find suspended colloidal-like yeast "asteroids" floating in space! Now the pond-scum, whipped cream head covers the secrets of this marvelous, unique brew! The nose is redolent of skunky hops; good, I like this...but butterscotch notes also ensue...the taste is a symphony of wonderment; the mouthfeel insanely perfect! Layer upon layer of multideminsional flavors ebb and flow like a great symphonic masterpiece! This is a thinking man’s brew. The hop component of this beer reminds me a lot of last years Stone black IPA...what a cool beer; digging’ this!

Wow, fantastic beer. A brown pour with khaki head around the edges. The aroma is solid hops, but with a nutty base. The taste follows with warming hops blended wonderfully into a nutty brown ale base. Some bitterness, some hop brightness and pineyness, Medium mouthfeel, and easily drinkin’. Enjoyed this one - its my kind of beer.

Bottle. Big muddy pour ... deep, dark and woody. The aroma carries a bit of varnish. This drinks with a gigantic character ... thick, chewy even. The woodsy bitterness is the predominate aspect of this brew ... with a thick-as-stone malt backdrop. Good stuff, worthy. (#4754, 8/30/2012)

Bottle. Looks great, dark red with a thick yellow head. Aroma is intense, very resinous, some raisins, toffee, figs and pine. Taste is also very resinous, toffee, pine, slightly biscuity. Full bodied and fairly bitter. I didn’t want this to finish. One of the best amber ales I’ve had

DocLock (7745) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2013 Bomber from Capone’s. Pours very turbid burnt sienna toward ruby with 3-finger fluffy off-white head that laces copiously. Nose is intense piney resiny hops, with a substantial caramel malt bill, plus spicy cinnamonny tangerine and pineapple notes. On the repour, the head takes an odd but firm shape. The flavor is caramel malty...very malty and on the sweet side, then the big piney tangeriney hops hit the palate and balance things out nicely. The mouthfeel is dense, hefty, and very complex, and finishes like a dense hoppy barleywine with more smoothness than, say, something like Hog Heaven. This beer is solid.

A - Cloudy amber-brown, finger of frothy tannish head. Fades fairly slowly. S - Pine and grapefruit hops, sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, nuttiness, a touch of fruity yeast. T - Grapefruit, pine, and grassy hops, some lightly resiny bitterness, sweet caramel and lightly bready malts, brown sugar. M - Medium bodied moderate carbonation. Smooth, dry, bitter, sweet finish. D - Nicely balanced. Good hoppy brown ale.

Prokroustis (685) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - APR 4, 2013
Dark murky red/brown doby with a rocky light brown head. Strong hoppy aroma with pine, grapefruit, bread, toast, caramel, brown sugar. Full body, ideal carbonation. Great heavy bitter flavour with lots of pine, grapefruit, as well as brown sugar, peach and a hint of chocolate in the sweet undertone. Great.
