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.

5% version. Greenish-yellow color with good fizz and just a bit of a head. Aroma of sour apple candy and alcohol. Taste dry and crisp, with some veggie notes and a bit of bitterness. Not very sweet, but kinda full.

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.

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.

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.

sweet cider aroma mellowed out a bit by slight pine hops. Taste is a sugary apple cider with an odd blend of pine/citrus hops.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sparkling clear pale yellow color with a slight green cast and a fizzy head that disappears quickly. The aroma is crisp green apple with a hint of citrus and pine. The taste matches the aroma, tart green apple with a touch of citrus, pine and grass. It sounds a bit odd but it actually works. Light bodied, fizzy, easy to drink, especially on a hot summer day. Overall, not bad, definitely worth a dry if you like sparkling cider.
