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.


  • Nearly clear, light yellow color


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


  • cistrusy hops, fresh cut grass 


  • hop forward, sour


  • astringent / drying


  • Long dry finish 

Tasting Notes / General Impression

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

Matthew favors dry hard ciders with body and leans towards traditional English styles, and he’s also developed a serious appreciation for hopped ciders and creative flavor infused ciders. 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.
