Review: Envy – Apple Wine with Hops by Rev. Nat’s Hard Cider

Sweetness: Dry

ABV: 10.20%

Cider Maker’s Description

I was always envious of brewers and thier hops. For this drink, we used Hops in the boil, Hops in the whirlpool, Hops in the fermenter and Hops in the brite. This Beast of a cider is more akin to beer than apple juice.

Though he prefers sweets in solid forms, he does enjoy semi-sweet to sweet ciders responsibly when the mood strikes. Learn more about our Chief Cider Curator here.
