Review: Imperial Hop & Stalk by 2 Towns Ciderhouse

Sweetness: Semi-Dry

ABV: 8.00%

Cider Maker’s Description

An outrageous amount of Citra hops, locally grown Crimson Red rhubarb, and fresh-pressed NW apples create a trenchant hard cider with huge floral, citrus, & passion fruit notes. The outspoken dry-hopped character of this cider is best when fresh, so make sure to exercise your Stalk Hoptions before they expire!

Tasting Notes / General Impression

Full bodied, great summer cider. I could sit and session this cider, but after the first bottle I don't think I would pick up on all of the subtleties.

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.
