From 6-pack can. Only bought this for the giraffe in a space helmet on the front of the package haha. Straw color and sharp apple peel aroma. Very tart with sour green apple flavor. Caramel sweet but dry finish. Could drink a lot of these imperial ciders!

was excited when I saw the can design and the alcohol content. unfortunately finding it incredibly sweet, it leaves a mouthfeel I’m not into, and is in the higher price range for a six pack. the search continues

My all time favorite cider so far! Sometimes I chug it, sometimes I sip and savor. How can you not love this refreshing combo of sweet, tart, 8.5% buzz, with a clean finish!

It’s 8.5% ABV so it’s a little less fruity and just more powerful but not necessarily more hopped than an average cider.

Imperial-style cider with notes of caramel and tart apples. Deep golden color, full-bodied, with residual foam that lasts forever. A distinctive cider.

Nice amber pour with a sight orange tint. The aroma is apple and the finish is apple. It has some tartness too. It says that is it semi-sweet but it doesn’t seem overly sweet or overly tart, which means it has a nice balance. The finish is also clean with some fruity esters and nice body. It’s is really good apple based cider.

Imperial-style cider made from bittersweet cider apples. Great bittersweet apple flavor with some caramel and orange. Awesome price point too, at $7 / 500ml bottle.
