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.

Rated based on notes taken 24 June 2012 -- Interesting cider made with hops. Hops not very noticeable.

bottle. Pale straw with minimal head. Slight aroma of hops, but I canít really taste them all all. Just a pretty average cider with reasonable balance of sweet and tart flavors. Not much complexity. Could definitely use a bigger hop addition.

12 oz bottle poured. Pours a clear transparent color with a nearly absent apple aroma. Figured the hops would contribute to the aroma a little more, but they play a small role in the flavor. Wish the hops added a little more. Very basic apple cider for me, though the flavor is good. Refreshing, and quite easy to drink. Just wanted a little more character.

Clear golden color with no head. Hops did add some bitterness to basically sweet apple cider.

Good cider, bold and flavorful. Sour apples, grass, little bit of hop, plastic. If is sweet like a starburst but balanced well by he ingredients. Sour. Not bad,

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 (2145) - 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.

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.
