COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop’n Mad Apple’s bright, juicy apple flavor is complemented by floral notes from the Strisselspalt hops and tropical notes from the Galaxy hops. These hops are added to the cider post-fermentation, a process known as “dry hopping” in craft beer, giving it a fresh hop aroma and pleasant dry finish, without the bitterness.

Pour is champagne color with no head. Aroma is nice but more sweet and apple no hops. If you like sweet and apple you will like this. Not something I would drink again but it’s not bad it’s just not what I want to drink.

Store bought apple juice aroma. Clear golden. Apple, fairly neutral. Light body, smooth. Unremarkable.

Bottle. I would expect something titled "Hop’N Mad" to have a strong hop taste, there really isn’t any. Tastes like an okay semi-dry cider, no real hop aroma either of note. Drinkable but not fantastic.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours golden. The aroma is apples and grain. There may have been a very faint hint of hops. The taste was tart apples and grain. It was dry and not overly sweet like many ciders are. I liked this. This had a better balance than most ciders. The talk of hops was misleading though.

Good granny smith apple aroma with a hint of hops at the back end. The description promised a hop profile, but there is none in the flavor. It’s a straight up cider. It doesn’t taste bad, but it falls short of delivering on it’s promise. If you like ciders you will love this. If you like hops you will be disappointed.

Bottle pour. Clear very pale. Aroma is very sweet green apples. Light body. Sweet with a very light bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12-ounce bottles from a Angry Orchard variety pack. This one poured a bit paler than the others. As someone who is not huge on hop flavors, I was surprised at how much I liked this one. It adds a little different flavor without being overpowering. Not my favorite, but decent anyway.

Not great. Not a lot of hops, tastes like all their other ones. Overly-sugary, watery-apple beer.

First of all, I can’t smell or taste any hops here. Aroma is cigarette tobacco, apples. spice. Flavor is apples and a little bitterness. If you have to have cider and there’s nothing else, it’s ok.
