Hop Flood is a big scary bastard of an Amber Ale.
It stinks of toffee and tamarind and its armpits are sweaty with hop oil spicy bitterness.
You remember that über cool bloke that was never properly washed, always smelled a bit dirty, but you kind of envied as he seemed effortlessly cool and slept with everyone that you dreamed of?
Well he is this beer.
There’s a greasy resinous bitter tongue kiss that’s all tobacco and lemon and dreadlocks, and a sticky malt that’s the bedsheets you’ll need to wash in the morning.
Hop Flood is dirty and nasty and very sexy and I hate the fact that I love him so much.
