Hopping Mad Cider – Central City Brewers & Distillers

From Central City Brewers & Distillers in Surrey BC comes their first foray into Ciders with their “Hopping Mad Cider” a cider that has been dry hopped.  The cider pours a light yellow colour with a very small white head.  The aroma consists of mild apples and maybe a hint of floral hops.  The flavour is of tart and sweet notes from the apples with a hint of hops and almost a champagne finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.5%.  I am not a cider fan but I would not turn this down if offered.  I would almost have to admit that this is quite tasty.  I think this will probably be popular with the craft beer fans out there.

Commercial Description:  Hopping Mad Dry Hopped Apple Cider is a dry-sweet cider blending Yakima valley hops with fresh pressed apples from the Pacific Northwest. Hopping Mad Dry Hopped Cider is cold fermented from scratch, using Northwest Apples, Yakima Hops and a special yeast. The dry hopping process used adds a nice hop aroma onto the dry sweet, cider, complementing the cider’s natural tart flavour.
