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.
12oz bottle pours out a pale crisp golden topped with a small white head. Nose is nice floral hops some citrus and the sweet apples. Taste is more of the nice hop bitterness goes good with the sweet apples. Travlr (25558) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 29, 2016

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2016 Wonderful aroma, very organic, plantlike, florally. Decent flavor as well. I like these "hopped up" Ciders.

Tap - Sweet Apple and hoppy nose. Flavor is a touch tart and funky with this combo, but it works. Light body and color.

Yellow pour, decent fizz. Big melony galaxy nose -- I knew it was something new school but couldn’t quite place it until I read the commercial description. Kind of a strange flavor, at first, but one gets used to it. Apple just a tiny bit sweet, hoppy without the heavy hop oils. Reasonably tasty stuff.
Bottle from Ale Jail. Clear orange pour with no head. Low apple tartness and it could be carbonated a bit more. The hop addition is nice though - melon notes. deyholla (11914) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2015
