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!

Bottled at Ølfestival, Århus, 2008. A golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel, and so is the flavor, leading to a bitter finish.

Leighton (22301) - 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.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2006
Cask (handpump) at The Pig & Fiddle, Bath. Gingery colour. Certainly not a hop monster but there’s plenty of robust, spicy, earthy hop character in a British style. The mouthfeel is quite smooth. Whilst its clean and crisp, I felt it could use a bit more bite and attack. Still pretty decent.

2.7
fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle from Maruhn, Darmstadt
Hazy amber-copper color; small-sized creamy head. The malt and hop arma, very light, is covered by a stronger smell of vegetables and cabbage, not rare in English bottles; also, refined white sugar; somehow perfumy. Still, the aroma is better than the flavor, where there is just some dry and dusty caramel (how can they rate the sweetness 4.5/5.0 on the label???), and more vegetables. Low bitterness. Confused.
