3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle purchased at 7 Eleven, Kittery. The aroma shows weak citrus, subtle pine, and apple juice. The flavor carries just a touch of the hops. Mild citrus with a wisp of pine. Just like the original cider, this dry hopped variation is lighter bodied. This does show a little more character than the standard cider. Respectable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear gold from the bottle with bubbly carbonation but minimal head or lace. Smells like beer, hoppy and pale, like an old school pale ale, but tastes like cider, a bit of a mind fuck. Definitely not my style.

Keg at BD Shoreditch, London. It pours a clean light golden color with a minimal white head. Aroma is tangy tart with notes of lemon pine cones apples and grass. Taste has some tangerine and grass alongside more traditional cider notes of lemon and baked apples. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, nice one

Bottle poured and split. Pours a clear pear color with no head. Subtle hops and sweet apple aroma. Hops balance out the apple sweetness very well. Makes for a very nice, easy drinking cider. Nice!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650 ml bottle. Clear straw-golden body with lively carbonation and a medium sized white head that disappears almost immediately. Aroma has wood, yeast, hay and some green hops where the apples starts in the background but becomes a bit more pronounced after a while. Flavor is fruity apples, quite much grassy hops, yeast and some kind of bitterness that’s remind me of eating older hop pellets – ie more grassy and wood and less fruity or floral. Medium body and slightly harsh bitter aftertaste. Definitively drinkable and interesting, but as this is my first hoppy cider I don’t really know what to expect. I was looking forward to some more fruity hops here. Have to try some other ciders in this style.

Bomber. Aroma of champagne, apples, and a little funky. Pretty straightforward. Apple cider with some piney hops. Tasty but not very complex.
