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.

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Pours a cloudy gold with a short white head which leaves a coarse lace. Medium, but very fine carbonation. Cut grass nose, medium body, minimally sweet. Pine, fruit and floral hops (in that order), toasty middle and finish. A good session IPA and one of the top beers in Texas.

MaltOMeal (1092) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2010
On tap at the Flying Saucer. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Nose was not impressive on this. May have been too cold. Not enough citrus. More an earthy, nutty aroma. Taste was earthy and nutty with some pine. Mouthfeel was dry and bitter. OK. Not impressed by nose, but a good texture in the mouth.

Tejas (882) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Draught > Gingerman. Not very familiar w/ these guys but if their other beers are anything like this guy then we’ll be close friends soon enough. Pretty much a grapefruit bomb which destroyed my tongue so it’s all good in da hood. Tasty! Ready for another.

Copper in color with a decent off-white head. Aroma is floral, citrus, hops, perfume and pine. Taste is of hops and floral with a good malt balance. Very smooth going down.

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.

degbert (1200) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2010
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.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2010
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.
