3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. It poured a hazy light golden color with a white head. The aroma was of tart floral apples. The taste was similar to the aroma with more tart apples and a nice tart finish of moderate duration. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
5% version. Pours clear light gold, slight head. Aroma is candied apple, barest hint of flowery hops. Taste is much more tangy, some noticeable bitterness, though no clear hops flavors, doesn’t hang together all that well.

I wouldn’t say this is a more hopped cider - it just doesn’t come through for me. Mostly the same apple in the aroma and flavor, some tartness. Not too different from their others.

Mint, grass, apple, and airplane glue nose. Clear pale yellow. Flavor is more dominated by apple with mint on the edges. Artificial greenapple candy flavor initially with more natural and drier (but still sweet) apple notes afterward. Light body, highly carbonated.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Trader Joe’s. 5% version. Clear golden in color. Nice apple nose. A pretty good balance between sweet and tart. Crisp apple cider with a little sweetness. A woody sort of finish. Not much in the way of hops.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of the rare Cider’s that I really enjoyed. The hops are just strong enough to transform this into more than just a Cider.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Clear, low carbonation, but there are some bubbles. Interesting aroma, I get a lot of grape, and I also get grape in the flavor. On the dry side, some sulfur, and a little apple flavor.
