Green apple and hop aroma. More floral s it warms. Very nice. Taste is best described as a cider IPA. Tart apple flavor with some hops. Very unique. I enjoyed it.

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.

Clear pale straw pour with a fizzy head that fades to a ring. Aroma is sweet apple, green apple, and grassy hops. Taste is green apple, pine, grass, and sweet apple. More tart overall. Dry palate. Hops are there but in the background.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ultra-pale yellow body with a fizzy pour. No apple detected in the nose, but
Cascades produce lovely citric aromatics and piney notes late (if I didn’t know better I’d think I was sniffing a nice APA). Semi-sweet cider is definitely the profile of the flavor and the hops add a pleasant tangerine aspect to it. Crisp, light and a real easy-drinker after a day of yard work. ~~~~~ Single 12 oz. bottle from a mix-a-six, Mariano’s, Oak Lawn, IL
