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.

neongolden (559) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
(Bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Dec 12 2014) Poured a slightly hazy fairly dark amber with a tan head of dense foam that dissipated slowly. Aroma has quite a bit of caramel malt, earthy, resinous pine, some citrus peel/pith, bit of grain too. Flavour also built around that quite sweet caramel body, and earthy, somewhat resinous pine hops. Citrus present but only lightly fruity, pith mostly, a little grapefruit flesh. Quite bitter from the middle on, pine persisting, some grain building, ending in a fairly dry and quite astringent finish. Medium, oily body with fairly high carb. I think this wasn’t super fresh and so the fruit characters to complement the sweet caramel, grain and quite piney bittering hops had faded. It didn’t really do it for me, but I think I was pretty palate fatigued by the time I had it too. Fresh bottle could be decent?

Desverger (2386) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle from Toft Vin, CPH - amber pour with off-white head. Sweet fruity and malty aroma and taste, citrus pithy hoppy notes, peachy, marmalade, pine needles, caramel malty backbone, some sweet toffee, twiggy hoppy bitter finish. Good stuff.

UXO (414) - CANADA - DEC 13, 2014
Pours hazy medium to deep amber with one finger of dense tan head diminishing gradually to a medium cap, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is pine resin, pithy citrus, caramel malt, earthy fruit. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (8/10) Medium to full body, soft carbonation, strong bitter finish. (4/5) So in the past couple of days I’ve seen Mikkel redefine pale lager, two students of his redefine pilsner, and now Jeppe is redefining amber ale. I might as well just throw out the damn dictionary. Basically, this is an amber that smells and tastes like a DIPA. I can live with that. (16/20)

RichTheVillan (3510) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy dark brown pour with a thin off white head, caramel and pine nuts aroma, taste has sweet caramel, some fresh hop with pine, a hint of grapefruit, decent stuff but maybe a little too sweet.

Bootlegger007 (70) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2014
Awesome, appearance was an amber colour of a murky sludge - like hops going for a swim, heavily hopped earthy aroma of grass and fruits, acidic at the back of the throat, such a bitter aftertaste, very enjoyable well balanced heavy ale

GJF (1275) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - DEC 10, 2014
On tap at sanctuary. Dark pour. A complex beer. It started out a little tart, but smoothed out as it warms. Layers of hop flavor. Finishes bone dry and bitter/slightly burnt flavored

ElManana (516) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2014
Pours dark amber with a little head. Nose is lots of peaches, some banana, hops, very fruity. Lovely aroma. Quite bitter taste, peaches but sweetness added to the mix. Lovely amber ale, very hoppy stuff.
