Bottle into a flute glass. Aroma is super fresh granny smith apples with grassy and slightly floral hops. Taste is sweet honey crisp and juicy golden delicious. Really can pick out all the apple varieties. For the hops taste is mostly light floral with a pleasant dry crisp finish. Very persistent palate. Totally great.

Clear golden pour with a thin layer of white fizzy foam. Really nice fruity aroma, presumably from the hops? Citrus and floral notes, sweet apple, and a bit of yeast. The flavor is sweet up front with a dry finish. Floral and citrus notes, nice apple flavor, and a light tartness.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with no real head. Soft tart apples on the nose, a very faint hint of citrus and pine hops, though I’m certainly trying to find it. Just on the thin side of medium bodied, a touch herbal. Soft tartness into the finish. Not sure if the bottle is old or if it’s just more of a subdued hop thing, but I really didn’t get what I was looking for here. Decent enough I guess, but didn’t live up to expectations.

Draft at Burp Castle. Now here is something I haven’t tried yet - hopped apple cider. Light and dry, a fairly bland cider mixed with resiny hop flavor. Not bad, but I was hoping for something a little more exciting.

A really distinct aroma that marries dry apple with a floral hop. Pours a super light yellow with slight bubbling. Taste is very potpourri like. More apple than hops.

the couple of hopped ciders i have had i have enjoyed so- .. . pours a sacagawea coin gold .. . good foam .. . wow, very clean and refreshing .. . has a nice light dryness .. . not awfully complex but enjoyable none the less .. . . my friend once left his baby girl in his local pub. He now knows the distance from his house to the pub can be run in 57 seconds!

Crystal clear, very light golden coloured body with a pale glow and no head at all - not even a soda head that dies quickly. Aroma of mint, cardboard, funk, old washclothes, wet towels and not much else. Light-bodied; Minor taste of alcohol, granny smith apples, a touch of yeast, some light sugars and not much else. Aftertaste is fairly similar - some nice apple sweetness, but no depth nor complexity, this one is pretty one-dimensional and not in a great way. Overall, not really worth trying and definitely not worth searching out for - nor spending a lot of money on. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Falls Church (Tyson’s Corner), Virginia on 31-October-2012 for US$3.49 sampled at home in Washington on 11-November-2012.

Bottle. Pours an average cheddar yellow with a nose of Wrigley’s spearmint gum. Flavor is apple juice and Wrigley’s spearmint gum. Nice mouthfeel until the chalk essence sets in. Nice cider; unlike anything I’ve tasted before.
