Westerham Brewery Hop Rocket (4.5%)

I’m really impressed by this little Session IPA.
It’s crammed with flavour and has a big solid body to boot.
Pouring a bright amber the aroma is lemon curd and pine needles, and taking a swig you are initially met by the big round malt body.
Biscuits and bread crusts, honey, caramel and toffee drizzled doughnuts make for a smooth chewy brown sugar rich backbone.
The hopping – and we are not told which hops are used, only that they are citrusy and piney – bring, um, citrus and pine, some freshly chopped garden herbs and a slap of nettle stings to the long dry finish.
