Triple X aggressively hopped cider collaboration announced

Hamilton, ON – One of Ontario’s first “aggressively hopped” ciders was announced this week as part of a collaboration between Clifford Brewing, West Avenue Cider Co., and Revel Cider.

It is, essentially, a hard cider version of an IPA, they describe, budded Triple X Cider.

“Adding dry hops is a common used technique in craft cider making but in this case the
crew employed hopping techniques more akin to the brewing process, bringing the cider up to near boiling temperatures and adding high alpha acid hops at various times to extract high levels of hop bitterness.”

It employs Galaxy, Citra and Hop X from Clear Valley Farms.

Triple X Cider launches Tuesday, September 8 2015 at WVRST Beer Hall in Toronto, and then available at other craft beer and cider-focused bars, including Brux House in Hamilton, Porter House in Toronto, and Woolwich Arrow in Guelph.
