The Grasshop-Ah Cider (dry hopped) from Colorado Cider Company in Denver, Colorado pours out a very pale gold in color with good clarity and is topped with a one finger, bubbly white head from a heavy pour that immediately dissipates. On the nose, this is very fragrant with a wonderful bouquet. Herbal, citrus, floral and apple aromas flood the nose. In the mouth, the apple cider flavor is prominent with the herbal-grassy hop flavors and the lemony citrus elevating the cider flavors to new heights. Light bodied. Well carbonated. No lacing. Crisp, clean mouthfeel. Good flavor on an extended, tart, dry finish.
A different cider that works well. The hops and lemon grass really add a level of complexity. If you like cider I think you will find this very enjoyable. Recommended.
