3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting. Pours clear gold, champagne colored with minimal head and a requisite champagney level of carbonation, although not quite as much bubbling. Nose was apples, tart, mild hops. Tasted crisp, dry, like a cider/white wine/champagne triple hybrid, and a dry finish. Interesting.

Pours a pale, clear golden color without foam. Aroma is clean, crisp and refreshing with notes of oakand bitter apple pulp. Flavor is natural apple juice amd pulp unsweetened. The body is very dry. I can’t find the hops except for maybe making the.whole beverage a little more bitter.

Poured from a 12ounce bottle, thanks to Mike. Apple, spicy, fruity hops, vegetal, winey. This is interesting, I did find the hops to be a bit out of place.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
