Review: Woodchuck Hopsation Hard Cider

woodchuck ciderVermont-based Woodchuck makes well over a dozen ciders. Recently we received this sample of Hopsation, a traditional apple cider that is infused with Cascade hops. As someone who’s hardly a cider fanatic, Hopsation is a surprisingly drinkable concoction. Some of that bitterness from a dosing of hops is just what that overly sweet-and-sour cider character needs, tempering things into a more balanced brew. While it’s not traditionally, overwhelmingly bitter in the way an IPA might be, it does have enough of a foresty/citrusy kick to elevate it above more typical, sugary, cidery fare.

    Has a unique cider flavour as you drink it bit with a lager after taste. This cider is half cider, half ale. For those who do not like the sweetness of a traditional cider and tend to like beer more, this beverage may be a good compromise.

    As someone who drinks mostly cider this is always a favorite to replace the overly-sweet or overly-apple tastes some ciders bring. As far as woodchuck goes, this is by far my favorite.
