COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nestled at tbe base of the Cascade mountain range is one of the most fertile and productive growing regions in the world -- the Yakima Valley. This valley grows fifty percent of the apples in the United States and seventy percent of the hops. Tieton Cider Works Yakima Valley Dry-Hopped Cider is a tribute to the part of the world that we call home. Our fresh pressed juice comes from apples grown in the Pacific Northwest. We created a unique method of dry-hopping that juice with our custom blend of three hops. Pair this cider with chilis and salsa, sweet or spicy flavors inspired from all parts of the globe, or simply a ripe Brie.

500 ml. bottle from Jungle Jims (Fairfield); shared with Boo. Aroma: Semi-sweet, slightly tart cider base with well balanced hop notes that have grapefruit peel, lemon and is also lightly floral. Appearance: Mostly clear pale yellow pour with very soft carbonation and virtually no head. Flavor: Semi-dry up front with grapefruit underneath; midway through lemon comes in with a matched increase in the sweetness; the finish is mostly dry, lightly tart and slightly floral. Palate: Light body, slick texture, very soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Excellent hopped cider; recommended all around.

Iím a fan of dry hopped ciders and this one didnít disappoint. The hops add a subtle bit to the already dry character.

The hops mostly come through in the aroma, making it smell nice. The flavor is of light apple with some crispness and not too much sweetness. Decent stuff.

Bottle, pale, light yellow pour. Fizzy, no head. Aroma is crisp, clean, faint Apple, a bit of light yeast spice, and a bit of earthy hops. Taste is clean and crisp as well. Light red delicious apple, a bit of light honey, a quick drying bitterness comes and goes, a bit earthy. Definitely from the hops. Champagne like. Very enjoyable cider. Not a sugar bomb by any means. This is real cider.

500 ml bottle. Served in a pint glass, the cider pours a clear straw gold color with about a quarter inch white head that fizzled away quickly. Pretty much no lacing at all. Aroma is nice, the cider smells like green and sweet apples, and some floral/grassy hops. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but thereís some mustiness and apple skin flavor noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís coating with a low/moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good cider, Iíll have to try some of their other ones now!

Bigger part of a 500ml bottle. Pale, clear yellow color. Minimal ring of off-white head, no lace. Great bright citrus aroma, definitely get some of the hop there. Some mild lemon, a bit of earthiness to it, apple peel, and apple. Medium body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Nice more dry finish. Satisfying light bitterness. Satisfying, balanced cider. Fantastic to enjoy with my lamb meatballs.

Bottle at CiderWISE, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Nose is dry and floral, with dry apples and a musty quality. Flavour is quite musty, with earthy notes, medium sweet apples, and light floral hops. Very well-balanced. The musty floral notes are situated well and in gold harmony with the apples. Nice.
