CO-FERMENTED WITH IDAHO 7, RIWAKA & EL DORADO

HOP EDITION CIDER

Hop Edition Cider

Careful selection of both hops and apples was paramount to this Hop Edition release. After a few trials and experiments, we found the perfect blend to champion the powerful citrus and grapefruit aromatics from the Riwaka hops with our signature clean apple flavour. 

Extra Jonathan apples from early in the season bought lots of crisp fresh apple flavours, which were further enhanced by the pineapple and tropical fruit of the El Dorado Hops. Our first time working with the Idaho 7 hop rewarded us with subtle herbal/black tea notes, which helped to round out and balance the fruit forward palate.

Tasting Notes

  • Citrus & grapefruit aromatics
  • Pineapple & tropical fruit
  • Herbal/black tea notes
  • Resin & pine needle
  • Rounded and fruit forward palate
