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 lbutikken in Copenhagen and drowned thousands of precious beer Hop Flood is a bitter tribute to the heroic bottles that didnt make it.

Bulk_Carrier (4744) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - DEC 22, 2012
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.

Bottled. 15cl sample. Old note. The aroma has caramel, pine, citrus, quite some fruit. Dark coloured beer with a medium sized off-white head. The taste is moderate bitter with caramel sweetness and piney hops, citrus, fruit. Medium bodied beer.

Maris (1450) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2017
From a 355ml bottle on 4/2/2017. Pours a murk amber with the barest of heads. The nose features some caramel and fruit notes. Taste wise, this is big and assertive, coming across as bigger than 7%. Theres lots of sweet caramel and brown sugar, with a hint of fruit as well, but its defined by huge, assertive, lingering, resiny hops (Hop Flood is indeed an appropriate moniker). Full bodied with average carbonation. Damn this is good stuff. Big, complex, challenging and extremely satisfying. Probably better classified as an American Strong Ale. Another top flighter from Evil Twin.

Bottle- pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is malty, flowery with a bit of sugar. Taste is malty with an astringent hop hit which slowly fades to a roast burnt sugar and hop finish.

ANZUShophunter (390) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2017
From bottle in Belgian ale glass. Pours an opaque mahogany with a frothy tan head. An earthy malty aroma leading into rich taste broad in both malt and hop profile. A nice lingering bitter finish.

Lovely stuff this. Loads of sweet caramel, toffee, biscuity malts... Bit of pine and resin, low bitterness. Dry finish. Lovely.

VueltaBirrista (88) - Murcia, SPAIN - DEC 3, 2016
El aroma es complejo, afrutado y con una importante carga de pino. En boca entra muy dulce al principio, con la malta tostadita muy presente. Pero poco a poco se va tornando amarga, hasta que una riada de lpulo te sorprende y es entonces cuando comprendes el por qu de su nombre. El final, amargo y seco, es muy duradero. Una grandsima cerveza.

biir (1145) - Berlin, - NOV 21, 2016
Bottle - hazy amber color, nice creamy head. Taste is barrique-like: Old red wood, slightly sour, red berries. Quite sweet, toffee. Finish is medium bitter. Its a decent beer but not my style. Wouldnt have it again.

thegreenrooster (4238) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Pour is a dark brown with a large white head. Aroma is a sweet malt with a faint whiff of hops. I can tell this is going to be malt heavy. Flavor is a dark malt with some dark fruit like a sunmaid raison. There is no date on the bottle so I dont know how old this is. There is not much hop presence but the malt used has a decent flavor.
