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.
By every appearance on their website, this beer went out with two different names (perhaps to avoid regional conflicts with other brands?) But the labels are nearly identical: hopped apple and hop'n made apple. In either event, it is a standard cider with a slight influence of hops, but not a dramatic improvement. The core problem (no pun intended) is that the cider itself isn't so good, perhaps because they're using standard apples from today's market rather than the traditional cider apples that produce great cider flavors...

bottle, old rating - Clear yellow-gold pour. It smells mainly of apple juice. The flavor is sweet apples and ehh.... maybe a little hops in there but you really have to be looking for it. As many others have noted, it's not much. It's okay as a regular cider. Just don't get excited about the hops addition. obguthr (7013) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2017
Store bought apple juice aroma. Clear golden. Apple, fairly neutral. Light body, smooth. Unremarkable. olenickj (119) - Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2017
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. Larry_Duffman (645) - - FEB 9, 2017
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.

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.
