Review: Yakima Valley Dry Hopped Cider by Tieton Cider Works

Review Date: October 30, 2016

Sweetness: Dry

ABV: 6.90%

Cider Maker’s Description

The Yakima Valley is known worldwide as a premier apple growing region and a prominent source of hops. We have chosen a select blend of traditional and exotic hops to marry with our cider. This blend of hops produces an aroma of fruit-forward nuttiness followed by a citrusy palate.

Appearance:

  • Nearly clear, light yellow color

Carbonation:

  • Not much carbonation on pour, just some large bubbles in the center

Aromas:

  • cistrusy hops, fresh cut grass 

Taste:

  • hop forward, sour

Mouthfeel:

  • astringent / drying

Finish:

  • Long dry finish 

Tasting Notes / General Impression

Before I knew it, the bottle was empty. I'll try to get notes next time.

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.
