Maybe was a bad choice by me to rate what this is, me not being, a hophea. Interesting nose but just really weird in the mouth with the hops mixing with the cider. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from Bishop Cider. Light pour. Aroma is sweet and apple. Taste is pretty much slightly less sweet a cider. I want to say that I could smell hops a little, but if it weren’t on the bottle, I’m not sure I would have been able to tell you it was hopped. Cavie (4805) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is a little sweet, light hops. Flavor is sweet, hoppy, dry with a tingle over the palate.

Pours light gold. Smell floral AT first then a bit metallic with subtle Apple. Taste is slightly drier than average and thin apple flavor. Not really much hops in flavor at all and in the aroma they fade quickly. A bit watery. Decent but not as good as I hoped with less hop character and thin.

A really good cider, I thought. Tart and little bitter, with some heavy green apple flavors. joet (2662) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Was ready to really like this. Galaxy is one of my favorite hops and this looked like a good authentic take on cider. Instead this was very sweet with almost no discernible hop character. This cider seems to be fairly simple with little time spent developing, drying out and without much apple flesh or wild character -- no tannins, little floral aroma, no touch of balancing tartness. So what I tasted was a hopped cider without apples and without hops. Very disappointed and hoping for so much more but this tastes a lot like Ace, Woodchuck or other quick commercial cider made from concentrates and devoid of any Basque or Somerset complexity.

Bottle - Apples, some vegetative herbs and some sweetness. Clear gold with no head. Sweet apples, peach, some light tartness and a nice finish. Although nice, I don’t get the hops unless it is herbal notes in the nose. Reid (2622) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2014
12 oz single from a small convenience store in Keizer.
$1.39. Different label but obviously same cider.
Pours a light golden colour and has a fair sized white head( for a cider)
Nice aroma of semi-sweet apples and floral hops..
Taste is sweet but not nearly as sweet as the usual cider..the hops take the edge off the sweetness..like it says getting melon,peach,apricot..and floral hop.
Palate as usual with ciders broders on the cloying but its OK.
Nice drink actually. joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 17, 2014
22 oz. bottle. It pours a typical apple juice color with a disappearing white head. The aroma is nice with lots of apple a little peach and summer fruit with light florals. The flavor is nice and refreshing with apples, peach, melon. A sweet, fruity drink without much complexity, but good.
