Dry Hopped Cider
A unique twist on traditional hard apple cider. This unfiltered, extra-dry cider is generously dry-hopped with Citra hops to blend subtle bitterness and lemon zest hop aroma, with refreshing fermented apple cider flavours. (from Caskapalooza 2014 at Edmonton’s Craft Beer Market)
Made from fermented apple juice, cider comes in a number of varieties. English cider is dry, with fruity, tannic qualities and low carbonation. This can be found cask-conditioned in England. Normandy is another major cider-producing region, with a sweeter, more effervescent, very complex style. Ciders produced elsewhere are often sweet, simple beverages for mass consumption, though there are some good English-style ciders in North America and Norman-style ciders in Quebec.
