Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell: Strong aroma. Pineapple and citra hops forward. Medley of tropical fruits.
Initial Taste: Medium bite from carbonation and acidity. Hop sensation and taste quickly noticeable. Candied pineapple. Some bitter notes.
After Taste: Fruits become slightly sweeter. Some fruits like kiwi and orange become more prominent. Creamy and tangy finish that lingers.
On ice: Carbonation reduced dramatically. Flavours reduced but overall smoother as hops taste and sensation are also reduced.
Additional Notes: The Tropical Hopped from Coffin Ridge is a remarkably well-balanced cider amongst all elements. It’s sweet and fruity and it still has some bitterness and grunt from the hops. While the pineapple is the most noticeable fruit, all fruits work in harmony with one another and they create a sweet, authentic fruit punch experience. Fruit flavours taste very fresh and juicy from start to finish.
