3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
