Thanks Gabriel for the bottle!!
A Christmas Eve treat. Pours clear light amber with a lofty head that slowly falls. Smell is tart fruity hops somewhat floral. The taste is similar with tart fruitiness, it is floral with a malt backbone. It ends tart, dry and mildly bitter. The body is thicker than I would have expected...almost medium, The carbonation is very nice, crisp though not overboard. Overall a nice English IPA

The pint I had was taken at the Wetherspoons in Bewdley: really enjoyed it, sweet hops? A good golden hue with a heavy white topping which gave some impressive lacing on the UK pint sleeve the beer was hand pulled into.
Another fine beer from Hook Norton.
