Hops with this beer give only bitterness. I couldn’t find any variety hoppy flavors(I know it’s an amber ale!) It’s too bitter for me though.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 33cl. Nice copper amber ale, nice white head. Nose is nice, mainly honey / toffee. Texture is dry, bitterness is strong and very astringent, a bit disturbing.

God damn you, Evil Twin. When you said ’Hop Flood’, I didn’t realise you were going to be so fucking literal about it. I left a third of the bottle on the kitchen bench. And it’s good beer! So that’s a third of a good thing I missed out on, which at Australian prices is enough to buy a house (not in Australia, obviously - somewhere else). Anyway: the beer. Looks good (the stuff in the glass, not the stuff on the bench - that looked sad). Murky brown, great length on the head. Lots of brown sugars in the nose, plus some Pacific hops. Lovely thick palate. Chewy toffee notes, raisins, some alcohol burn and lip-smacking hoppiness. This might be about the best example (albeit hugely atypical) of a beer style that usually leaves me cold. Here’s to Double Ambers, hold the sugar. (330ml bottle from Leura Cellars, May 2016)

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle. Murky amber color with a small yellowish head and lots of sediment. Aroma and taste of hops, caramel, toffee, and more hops. Taste is complex with a good amount of sweetness that is overbalanced by the bitter qualities of the hops. Medium full body.

Bottle from Perfect Pour. Nice dark amber body with little head. Nose is barley, roasty, sweet. Taste is nice and malty and spicy and toasty and milky up front, warms up a bit and nice maltier, almost chocolate finish. Really good stuff. A flood of hops!
