If their debut beer, the double IPA, caught the attention of the country's beer geeks from their very earliest days, the arrival of the Hopped Our Red helped bring the Reeves' clans talents to a wider audience.

As the name suggests, it's another beer in which hops are very much to the fore, albeit with the malt characters – toffee, caramel, biscuit – given greater prominence.
