Reid (2022) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2014
22 oz bottle from "Trader Joes" in Salem OR $5.49 Light gold beer with carbonation strings and an initial small bubbly white head..lasts 10 seconds. Aroma of semi-sweet cooing apple and some floral hop. OK Taste same as the aroma maybe the apples are now more granny smith and the hops mingle well. Mouth feel not the greatest due t the sweetness it becomes cloying at the end. If this had been a drier cider it would have helped. Ok cider the hops kinda work.

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

60minuteman (989) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2015
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,

Patrickctenchi (4514) - Cox’s 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.

troyc (2862) - Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2015
[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 (2078) - 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.

DCLawyer (1743) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2014
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 (3222) - 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 (4444) - 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 doesn’t get overly sweet or overly tart, it just stays balanced, simple, and clean. There’s something to be said for that.

MrW (444) - 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 (8604) - 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.
