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: 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!
Lots of tangarine when rerating, pretty awesome.

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.

When I first tried this brew I was expecting hops, this was because in austin there are a lot of hop heads. This one to me is more of an east coast or british style ipa. The hops seem to be different than your normal west coast 4 c hops. Overall a nice representation of what Ipa can be.

Aromas of citrus, pine, and all around floralness. Tastes of citrus, pine, floral, lighlty earthy, and some caramel. Had a lighter sweetness to the bitterness.
