COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The (512) India Pale Ale is a big, aggressively dry hopped American IPA with smooth bitterness (~65 IBU) balanced by medium maltiness. 100% US malted grains, loads of hops, and great Austin water create an ale with apricot and vanilla aromatics that lure you in for more.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2011 My first rating of this in April 2010 must have been a less tuned up batch. This amazingly drinkable IPA has now become my favorite Texas session IPA. Pours bright yellow/orange with grapefruit mango nose. Lots of citrus and fruit in this one, with a perfectly lasting bitter finish. It’s not over the top, but is in my opinion, almost the perfect sessionable IPA of all the Texas craft breweries. Drink it fresh on tap and revel in a delicious concoction.

Poured on tap. Bright, pungent nose of citrusy hops. Color is a rich gold with very little head or lace. Taste -- grapefruit, grapefruit, grapefruit, but still in balance with a light malted toastiness. Drank quickly and was very refreshing.

On tap at Uncle Billy’s in Austin. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is citrus hops. The flavor is citrus hops with some nice caramel malts to add a little balance. Medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2010
On tap at Petrol Station. Darn good IPA. Hoppy, sweet malts, stickyness and a clean finish that leaves you wanting a few pints more.

(Growler) Pours orange with nice thick head and lasting great lace. Nose of oranges, bight hops with an oily body. Taste of oranges, lightly bitter hops that are very fresh and this is super drinkable.

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a cloudy orange copper with a medium white head that leaves good sticky lacing on the glass. The aroma is a peach and apricot. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet hop with orange and apricot and a nice bitter finish. Easy to drink a very well done ipa from (512).
