Hopped and Bothered: Angry Orchard Iceman
Well, its been a while since I’ve blogged and to make up for it, here is a beer/cider review. I'm also thinking about doing a podcast in the future so there is that. :)
Alcohol content: 10%.
It pours almost with the consistency of maple syrup. The fragrance is astounding. Beyond the spiced and sour apple, you get brown sugar, vanilla, all-spice, toffee, caramel and a hint of cedar and oak. Its a sticky sweet, like a ripe pear, sticking to the roof of your mouth. The acidity does not drown out the alcohol burn, and the sweetness never compromises the flavors.
Its an astoundingly sweet and rich concoction. There’s even a bit of honey in the finish. Well worth your time.
Buy if: you have no excuse. For a good price, get it at Costco. Its roughly $3 cheaper.
Overall: my favorite hard cider. Period.
