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!

Davros IX (494) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2017
2016 catch up - A "British" IPA, but with more than a hint of flavour from the USA with some floral hops coming through. Overall a very nice beer.

3.7
Grumpelmies (364) - GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Amber/orange. Small creamy long lasting head. A fair bit of lacing. Aroma of citrus fruits and oranges. Taste is mostly fruity: oranges, tangerine and a hint of grapefruits. Some honey-like maltiness. Bitter and dry finish. Rather strong carbonation but very refreshing and easy drinking. The hoppiness is not as in-your-face as most modern american style IPAs but rather subtle and delicate. Really nice.

Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2017
Bottle at home in Hackney - sourced from Ocado. Pours clear copper-gold with a modest, foamy white head. The aroma has lightly toasted malts, dry caramel, some ripening citrus. Light sweet flavour with notes of toasted grains, a little flinty minerality, moderate leafy bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with light astringency, more leafy hops, toasted grains, a little husky bitterness, aged citrus rind. So so overall.

3.4
nihtila (3912) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 24, 2017
Keg at Marriott hotel Bristol. Pours clear red. Nose is malty, light fruits. Tastes red fruits, citrus hops, light bitter grassy, quite gentle in hops. Decent balance, easy.

3.6

Cask, quarterly ale, 1/2 pint, hand-pulled at Hengler’s Circus, Glasgow on 31 Jan 2017, grassy, citrus aroma, amber with a thin bubbly white head and thick lacing, orange, barley sugar flavours, sweet, viscous.

john44 (3400) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Feb 2010 - Amber in colour. Very Fruity; sweet citrus-orange. Malty; caramel, almost a sugary syrupy sweetness. Hoppy; grassy hops. Very sweet citrus fruity malty throughout. Certainly not an IPA. Quite tasty. Very drinkable. (2010-02)

3.4
Fullpintofbeer (439) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle @Cabin, Bristol Airport. Small white head, golden colour, clear. Aroma of grapefruit peel, but not too intensive. Bitter taste, long finish, soft carbonation, medium body. Not bad, quite refreshing.

2.8
ipabr (232) - Somerset, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2016
Floral, earthy, spicey, oily, metallic and minerals. A good showcase of old UK hops.

2.9
ndburns (190) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2016
500ml bottle from Asda. Clear brown with small bubbly head. Malt and summer fruits dominate the aroma. Quite sweet up front, malty fruity flavors, but a strange finish that I don’t much care for.

3.4
danlo (3237) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2016
500ml bottle. Amber colour, white foam head leaving lacing and fruity malty aroma with a metallic note. Taste is bready malt caramel, sweetish, and citric earthy hop bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry tangy bitter finish. Quite drinkable.
