A: A very cloudy, medium copper. An average pour produces three fingers of thick, rocky foam. the head is long lasting and sticky.

S: A moderate citrus hops that is kind of flat quickly followed by a medicinal note that blends with a grassy dry hopped aroma. A bit of tropical fruit comes though in the hops aroma after it warms. There isn't much malt aroma what little is there smells of clean sweetness. There is light fruitiness and moderately-light alcohol aroma.

T: The moderately-strong tropical fruit hops flavor and strong hops bitterness are front and center on this beer although they are muted showing signs of age. The malt provides enough malt to support the hops and brings a light caramel flavor. There is a little bit of an herbaceous note and a light alcohol sweetness. The balance is fairly bitter and the aftertaste is of citrus hops and lingering bitterness. A slight bit of phenols come through in the flavor as well a slight vinegar flavor.

M: medium bodied with a moderately-strong carbonation. There is a light hops rerived astringency.

O: Well even after the flaws that could be from an infected bottle I might try and find a fresh bottle of this in the future because the underling beer is still pretty good.

Been picking up a bottle of Evil Twin here & there since they randomly began showing up & I've been a bit underwhelmed to date. But hey, I like hops, let's try another. My glass is half-full. 12 oz. bottle.

Pour is a ruby orange with active carbonation & enough floaties to warrant a fine particle filter. The nose is, well, not there. Really. I can barely distinguish the air in the glass from the air floating all around me. Srs.

Hop Flood would be a great first beer when you got out of prison, or came out of a coma. Hop bitterness does indeed flatten the palate, but there's not much to back up that flattering first impression. Leafy hops, lingering aspirin, harsh bitterness. Took half of this small bottle from my wife & that's plenty.

A very one-note beer. The arms race that is ever-increasing IBUs has to have something to back it up, otherwise you may as well go lick a lemon, without the taste. Mediocre.

I was expecting a much different beer. Not the crisp hoppyness I enjoy normally. Lots of malt flavor reduce the true character of the hops. That said there is still a well rounded flavor that is different and kept me sipping through the whole bottle. Not a bad beer, but not in my personal style wheelhouse.
