Thornbridge Halcyon

Thornbridge Halcyon

Thornbridge describe themselves as a "collaboration of innovation, passion and knowledge" and they are spot on. Their beers are not pasteurised or filtered and are the epitomy of raw craft beer at its finest. Jaipur is their most well known but the rest of the range really stands up to the test too. Beer Hawk loves their beer!
Style IPA
Country British Beers
ABV 7.4%
Serving Temp 6-8 °C
Bottle Size 330ml
A golden pour with a fluffy white head and abundant tropical aromas. A little pine on the nose too and an undertone of citrus. The taste is resinous and piney with plenty of citrus, with some mango. You’ll also detect some sweet biscuity elements, and a refreshingly clean and bitter finish.

Product Reviews

  • Top class

    Review by Alex

    Beautiful shade of mildly cloudy orange, sweet citrusy aromas and the taste offers bitter refreshment at first then a lasting palate full of pineapple and grapefruit. After one sip I put this in my top ten beers! (Posted on 13/01/2018)

  • Hoppier than a kangaroo on hot sand

    Review by Marit

    Thornbridge at their best – a light, citrusy British DIPA. Strong US influence and well executed, Pours a light blond and explodes with hops. Excellent beer! (Posted on 19/12/2017)

  • Delicious

    Review by Rich

    Not too heavy on the mango, but it cuts through this rich IPA very nicely.

    Order more than one... (Posted on 13/07/2017)

  • Brilliant

    Review by Trott

    Pours cloudy orange with thick foamy white head. Aroma is fruity, citruses and some grass, straw and malts as well. Taste is moderate bitter with citrusy mouthfeel. Medium to heavy body, slick to creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. (Posted on 30/06/2017)

  • Quite bitter

    Review by Beer Baron

    A nice, bitter double IPA - one of my favourites. Very drinkable and a pleasant bitter aftertaste lingering on the tongue. (Posted on 27/06/2017)

  • Bitter Kick, Drinkable

    Review by Ness

    Great IPA. Refreshing and such a easy drinker. Love this brewery. (Posted on 17/05/2017)

  • Love this

    Review by Mart

    This must be the best IPA I have tried so far. It kicks in immediately, beautiful strong bitterness all the way, with citrus hop aroma, refreshing, enchanting, impressive (Posted on 08/05/2017)

  • Hard to beat

    Review by Beebo

    A very nice double IPA that firmly sits on the bitter side of this beer type. A taste of citrus peel and pine that gave a very pleasing drinking experience. It had a strong mouthfeel and richness and a low level of carbonation. This is a beer that is complemented by food and a world a way from the sweet and fruity double IPAs from other brewers.

  • One of my favourites

    Review by MH

    Punches at the IPA heavyweight. Lovely hop aroma, bursts with flavour, sticky toffee, intense bitterness. Trifle soaked in alcohol. Madeira wine. Keeps working the tastebuds with different hop notes of summer hay, marujauna, lychee. Malty sweet, sugar and spice. Nice (Posted on 08/02/2017)

    Review by Danny

    Oh Thornbridge, you never fail me. Wonderfully balanced for a double IPA, hoppy bitter and slightly fruity. Wonderful (Posted on 27/01/2016)

  • Belting

    Review by Llamaman

    Thornbridge make some excellent beers, but this one really smashes it out the park.
    A perfect IIPA.

  • Truly imperial

    Review by Dan Mac

    This is the mother of all IPAs - dangerously easy to drink considering the high ABV, superb. (Posted on 23/12/2015)

  • Cracking IPA

    Review by Chunks

    Enjoy all beers from Thornbridge and this one does not let down, cracking taste, not a session beer however a few of these of an evening and will be a good evening (Posted on 09/12/2015)

  • NOT over rated

    Review by Tim the RAT

    This is gorgeous, Thornbridge genious! (Posted on 30/11/2015)

  • Still top of the pile

    Review by howzat

    A summer holiday in the States this year saw me drink so much IPA I ended up going right off that style of beer altogether. Thankfully there is always Halycon to go back to and restore my love of IPA. If it's not the best beer in the world, it is certainly in the top handful. (Posted on 11/11/2015)

  • Goes down perfectly

    Review by Nick S

    Superb. The best IPA known to beer-kind! (Posted on 06/11/2015)

  • So drinkable

    Review by wreck

    Really drinkable strong IPA. Perfectly balanced, crisp, hoppy and bitter. Thornbridge come up trumps once again. Great stuff. (Posted on 23/04/2015)

  • Quaffable

    Review by TheRPer

    Surprisingly quaffable for a strong beer. Hoppy and refreshing taste and fruity on the nose. Thornbridge never seem to disappoint! (Posted on 14/03/2015)

  • The best of the best

    Review by tehhaz

    The crown jewel of the Thornbridge line up - no mean feat considering the brilliance of some of their beers. The flavours are so beautifully balanced that you could drink it all night, though at 7.4% the head might not be quite so beautifully balanced the next morning! (Posted on 22/02/2015)

  • Great IIPA

    Review by Ay Pee Horne

    Corner shop sweets nose, with plenty of hops to hint at what's to come. Crisp, refreshing and incredibly juicy. Strong stuff, not one for an afternoon sit-down session. (Posted on 25/11/2014)
