330ml bottle served in a pint glass.
A: Pours a deep and slightly cloudy amber color forming a small but solid and cream tan head with excellent retention forming lots of thin and lingering lacings in the glass.
S: Flowery and malty. Sweet caramel. Strong notes of resin and pine. Grapefruit and zest.
T: Slightly sweet upfront that becomes quickly quite bitter. Strong bittersweet balance. Persistent bitterness. Strong notes of caramel malts and grapefruit. Great hops profile, a mix of pine, resin, orange zest, grass and hop cone flowers.
M: Medium to heavy body. Average carbonation. Strong malty bittersweet aftertaste. Strong notes of pine and toffee. Persistent bitterness.
O: Great drinkability. Excellent Amber Ale. Strong hops character. douglas88 (9633) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2015
12 ounce bottle from Uptown Market. Pours a somewhat cloudy reddish hue, a big layer of sediment on the bottom. A big caramel and toffee nose. The flavor is soft citrus, big caramel, low bitterness though a very hoppy amber. Some toast. Quite easygoing. Solid. Four years ago this would have really stood out a ton.

From bottle at some village in Puebla, Mex. Very kinda heavy hop flavor, not really an Amber Ale as tagged. Aromas of Peach, Passion fruit, some Mango and of course a carnival of hops dancing all around your glass and tongue..., Surprisely not a sweet beer like others from Evil Twin...!!!!

33 cl. bottle. Dark amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma and flavour of hops, peach, spice, malt, caramel and straw. KansaiBeerLvrs (5378) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 8, 2015
Bottle from Sake no Taniguchi. Now this is an Amber Ale~!
Evil Twin Hop Flood 7%
Pouring an intriguing reddish brown that sucks in the light in such a way as to hint at black with a thick beige head of foam. It’s got a big resinous hop bouquet, malty caramel and some boozy heat.
The taste is bitter pine bark, a bit herbal and huge underlying caramel syrupy sweetness. I could honestly see many people mixing this up with a double IPA. Nice stuff.

Bottle from beergium. I think the cap had a problem. Dark copper color. No head. Medium sweetness, low bitterness. Aroma is malty, hoppy, spicy. Must retaste. ciocanelu (2957) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 9, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Murky, dark amber color with beige head. Caramel and some earthy hops, sweet at first but gets pretty bitter in the finish and lingers in the aftertaste. Not bad but nothing really special. gegwilson (3803) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle in Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Deep amber with a nice big frothy cream head. Fruity aroma with peachy notes. The flavour is spicy with rye, toffee, stewed fruit and pine hop. Bitter finish. Tasty. martin00sr (4441) - Haderslev, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2015
Hazy dark amber, with beige froth. Strong hop and caramel aroma. Flavour has solid bitterness along with floral hops and caramel, even hints of licorice. Long and very bitter finish. Dry and medium bodied. Good one. IslandHaole (1299) - Misawa, JAPAN - OCT 11, 2015
Green hops, floral with pine and cookie dough sweet malt. Hazy caramel colored with tan head. Sweeter malt up front with toffee flavors quickly give way to bitter hops that seem to get even more bitter the longer it stays in your mouth. An Amber Ale that has OD’ed on IBUs! Has a minerally aftertaste, almost like putting a penny in your mouth.
