CINCINNATI — Angry Orchard announced the national release of Angry Orchard Green Apple hard cider. The cider, which will appear on store shelves this week, has the tartness of a green apple and is the first year-round style of Angry Orchard hard cider made with American apples, the company said.
"With its bright, fresh apple aroma and notes of honeydew melon and kiwi, Angry Orchard Green Apple is a refreshing and complex cider balanced by tartness characteristic of green apples," said David Sipes, cider maker for Angry Orchard. "For Green Apple, we explored apples from a few different regions, but we ultimately were inspired by the flavors found in culinary apples grown in Washington State. These apple varietals boast a fresh apple flavor balanced by unmistakable apple tartness, perfect for our Green Apple hard cider."
Angry Orchard Green Apple is available year-round in six-packs for a SRP of $7.99 to $9.99. Other hard ciders made by the company include Angry Orchard Elderflower, available in April 2014, and Angry Orchard Cinnful Apple, a seasonal cider available during the colder months of the year.
