In this cider blog, we are going to get into another cider from Woodchuck Hard Cider. The cider that will be feature is their Cider Cellar Series Dry Hop. If you have read my blog posts the last few days, you know the history of Woodchuck Hard Cider. If you have not, please, read those blog posts to get to know cider company. Let us get into the cider.
It has a see through and clear golden color without a head on it. The smell has cider, apple, and hints of citrus. The taste has a sweet cider notes and then turns into citrus hop notes. The aftertaste is a bitter hop finish. It is a drinkable cider to most but to me it is a sipping cider.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Woodchuck Cellar Series Dry Hop represents our imagination at work. We start with our original small batch hard cider. Then add an aggressive amount of Cascade hops to impart rich hop flavor and aroma. This extensive dry hopping process infuses the cider with crisp citrus and pine notes. The smooth apple character of our signature hard cider balances perfectly against the bitterness of the hops. A truly rare and very limited treat straight from the Woodchuck Cellar. Cheers!
Here is a description from their website (www.woodchuck.com):
Woodchuck Dry Hop is the first cider in our new Cellar Series line. Infused with hops, Woodchuck Dry Hop brings a new unique flavor to the cider category and it represents our dedication to pushing innovation in hard cider. Like all of our styles, Dry Hop is naturally gluten-free.

Closing out the tab, I saw this cider and I thought this will be pretty interesting. I am a huge hop head so I had to pick this cider up. Woodchuck made a dry hopped cider. I love the color and aroma this cider has going on in it. The drinking experience is extremely different and unique. I love it. I was pretty stun and impressed with this dry hopped cider. To me, the dry hopping gives my hop head something in a cider. I recommend this cider if you want something a little different and unique then a beer or normal cider. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
