Bomber from Beer Run. I believe this is the first time Iíve ever had a hopped cider. Pours a clear amber color with no head. Aroma of tart apples, apple skins, floral and peppery hops. The taste is tart apples and herbal hops. Medium bodied. Interesting, but I canít say Iím a fan of this concept.

Patrickctenchi (4394) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle: Clear, bubbly gold with a quick white ring. Apple.....and a very light caramel note to the scent. Taste is straight-up apple.....with a hint of grassy hops.....adds a subtle "beery" aspect at the finish. Pretty good.

[Bottle] Sampled at Cider Summit Chicago 2015. Yellow pour is clear in complexion. Fizzy, white foam head. Nose is of floral hops, apples and a mild funk. Flavors of dry cider, herbal hops, yeasty phenols and some grass. All in all, it came together decently.

OldMrCrow (2033) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle dated 7/21/14 so maybe not the freshest. Light yellow pour with some white foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Starchy apple nose with very little sign of the hops. Flavor is much the same, just a little bit of sweetness, no glaring flaws. Perfectly good cider.

Draft sample. Crisp apple, maybe the barest hint of hops (though I may just be imagining that). OK, but nothing really standing out from another above-average cider.

Frank (3139) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
This is a tasty cider with a subtle touch of hops. Is is perfectly clear yellow with no head. its nose is fruity and floral with some pine and earthy notes that seem to be from the hops. This is rather dry and not terribly flavorful but pleasant. It is slightly tart and very slightly resinous in the finish. A cut above soda pop style ciders for sure but a bit on the bland side for my tastes.

ben4321 (4330) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Location: 22 oz bottle from Hoboken Vine, 9/5/14

Aroma: The nose is clean apple, not particularly sweet, with some light spice notes
Appearance: It pours a clear apple juice yellow with a tiny, bubbly head and no lace to speak of
Flavor: The flavor is lightly sweet and lightly tart apple, clean flavor, simple, mild bitterness
Palate: The body is light, it is smooth and easy drinking, with a clean, light finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was quite solid. Its an easy cider for sure. Clean and drinkable. It doesnít get overly sweet or overly tart, it just stays balanced, simple, and clean. Thereís something to be said for that.

MrW (440) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2014
Sample at The Alibi Room, Vancouver. Aroma of ripe apple, a bit floral. Yellowish colour, no head when it reached the table, and no sign of any head before that. Taste was apple juice with some alcohol, hay. Sweet taste. Dry mouthfeel.

crossovert (8349) - Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2014
355ml bottle. No idea why every cider producer has to put cascade hops and only cascade in their cidr. Does have a hoppy nose, it is a sweeter and not that amazing cider htough.

michaelinwa (623) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle. Typical cider pour and aroma. I detect no hop aroma. This is balanced and very good, very easy to drink. Really like it, but it needs some hop presence to live up to the name.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2014
On tap at the Crow and the Pitcher. Aroma of green apple peel, light grass, and a light malt. Pours light blonde with great carbonation and a small lacing. Taste is crisp with light grass, green apple peel, and light apple juice. Great dry finish with a nice dry bubble. I like this very much.
