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.

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).

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2010 Growler thanks to thirdeye11. Pours with a copper body and a large tan head. Aroma is quite hoppy with some pine needles, mango, apricot and earth. Taste is really nice with caramel and a nice hoppy, pine like punch. Light bubbles. Really a solid IPA! Quite drinkable!

From draft at the Austin Flying Saucer on October 24, 2009. (512) IPA has a slightly cloudy amber color, an almost smoky moderate hop aroma, and a thin, silky, soapy head. With clean hop flavor with hints of light pit fruit, this beer is extremely pleasant, great as an every day drink.

Had on tap at a random bar with Cavie while visiting Texas. The beer had a nice flowery aroma, but I get diacetyl.
