Bottle at Meridian Pint. Clear yellow color, rare bubbles. Aroma of lightly dusty apple skins. Aroma of bittersweet apples, white pepper. OK. I donít get a lot of the hops character, unless itís the pepperiness. fiulijn (20427) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
Draught at St. Augustineís, VancouverTheydon_Bois (19200) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
Very pale blond color with almost no head. Some aroma of apple and plastic, light, and acidic; light hazelnuts. Dry and weak mouthfeel; light cider flavor, a bit of cider vinegar, with light acidity; the final is lightly bitter, vegetable.
It feels like drinking Swedish face ciders.
Tap at Breakside, PDX, 25/05/13.
Clear blonde with no head, carbonation evident.
Nose is apples, sugars, hint of booze.
Taste comprises bitter apples, earthy/grassy qualities, sugar.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, crisp dry finish.
Ok cider. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
Draught, St Augs. Pale green-yellow. Lots of alcohol taste, little bit of apple. No hops noted. Bit sulphury, big alcohol late and itís thin. Iím looking for a positive here but not finding one. mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
On tap at the Alibi Room for Camrapalooza 2014, pours a clear nearly white colour with a small white head. Aroma brings out dryhops and very dry apples. Flavour is very dry and hoppy, with dry apples, dry hops and little residual sugar. Very drinkable but low complexity. Decent.

Clear golden pour with a thin layer of white fizzy foam. Really nice fruity aroma, presumably from the hops? Citrus and floral notes, sweet apple, and a bit of yeast. The flavor is sweet up front with a dry finish. Floral and citrus notes, nice apple flavor, and a light tartness. Drake (13649) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bomber from Beer Run. I believe this is the first time Iíve ever had a hopped cider. Pours a clear amber color with no head. Aroma of tart apples, apple skins, floral and peppery hops. The taste is tart apples and herbal hops. Medium bodied. Interesting, but I canít say Iím a fan of this concept. Dogbrick (12932) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Sample at Stone World Bistro & Gardens in Escondido. Clear yellow color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lace. Apples and hops in the nose. medium body with flavors of apple and mild floral hops. The finish is fruity with an apple cider aftertaste. Slightly above average overall. crossovert (12666) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2014
355ml bottle. No idea why every cider producer has to put cascade hops and only cascade in their cidr. Does have a hoppy nose, it is a sweeter and not that amazing cider htough. j12601 (10993) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with no real head. Soft tart apples on the nose, a very faint hint of citrus and pine hops, though Iím certainly trying to find it. Just on the thin side of medium bodied, a touch herbal. Soft tartness into the finish. Not sure if the bottle is old or if itís just more of a subdued hop thing, but I really didnít get what I was looking for here. Decent enough I guess, but didnít live up to expectations.
