COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available bottled year round.
Originally released as a special as Brunel 200 IPA for the Brunel Birthday Celebrations in April 2006.

Brunel and his fellow engineers challenged our sense of what was possible, and in doing so changed the face of the world. Brunel IPA is a clean tasting, dry and hoppy, authentic recipe India Pale Ale. Amber in colour, full bodied with a bittersweet finish…perfectly engineered!

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 27, 2006
Pint pulled at The Railway in Putney (London), clear amber with a small but thick and creamy white head. A well combined malt and hop aroma, with the floral hops slightly dominant. A good bitterness and dryness all the way through the mouth (not to strong)) with a subtle hoppy flavour.

peter48er (177) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2006
Cask stillage @ The Freshfield Hotel Formby 2006 Beer Festival/ An IPA showing some of the strength other so called IPA’s lack. Dry, hoppy with a bitter aftertaste. Full bodied despite being pale in colour. Very moreish.Strongly Recommended.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2006
Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Fairly fruity earthy hop aroma with some sulphur - personally I could have done without this. Enough malty body to remind you of the strength with a refreshing hop finish.

harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2006
Cask handpull at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. This beer is on Wetherspoons spring list of guest ales, so should make its way round to everyone. Copper colour with thin off white head. Good earthy hop. Warm malts in mouth with touch of chocolate. Smells like an orchard in autumn. Lots of good white flesh fruit, earthy bitter, drying hop finish. Very tasty. Full in mouth with heavy dose of Fuggles and Goldings on the end.
