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!

Light chestnut color pour. Moderate hoppy smell but flavor is maltier than a normal IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a brown colour, taste is malty and toffee like, an ok beer but a bit of a dissapointment and uninspiring

Smooth textured light copper coloured ale with a disappearing bubbly head. Has a good identifiably pale ale aroma with a small fruitiness. It’s more stubborn in its flavour and has a graininess. Slips down the palate with ease.

([email protected] Bar’s Bristol Beer Festival) Amber with a beige head with medium lacing. Malt and caramel with a medium/light body. Ok to Average.

500ml Bottle: best before 14 May 2013, poured into my Abbot Ale glass tankard on 12 Aug 2012. Chestnut brown and clear body: on top a huge foaming crown of off-white bubbles. Solid hop nose with mild malt undertones: an understated aroma, but got stronger as the beer warmed (I’d cooled it in the fridge). The taste was interesting: hop bitterness countered by some malty sweetness (caramel and toffee notes): The body was well balanced and the 5% ABV suited the brew nicely. I’ll certainly have this again if I see it.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks Tomer G. VEry clear copper with a thin white film. Sweet, malty, a little honey aroma. Rich, delicate bitter taste, malty and round. Smooth, light body, a little sweet finish. OK.

Swaroga (2213) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 18, 2012
50cl bottle. Clear brown, filtered with small to medium white head. Nose : caramel, grains, some nuts. Fruity banana , orange and peach. Watermelon. Sip : low density , oily texture with tingling carbonation. Little sweet cake, with interesting bitter taste. The bitterness is a good balance between delicate coffee and dominating grapefruit. And I must confirm it’s easy to drink. Great blend. It’s a big shame it’s just so little alcohol in it.

2.7
Jonb5 (545) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2011
Half pint. Copper colour, very clear. One finger head which the beer retained well. Light corky soapy hoppy smell. Very bitter, light smoky fruity aftertaste. Medium mouthfull. Overall ok but not world class.
