Tap at Draught House, Austin, TX.
Pours cheddar orange with an aroma of apricot-infused grapefruit. Flavor is Sunny Delight grapefruit and orange juice. Average mouthfeel. This beer wants to be good, and I’m sure it will be as more batches are made. Keep it up.

I am really wanting to say good things. So happy to have another brewery in town and would very much like to meet the brewer. The pint I had and even more the one my friend ordered had a haze beyond a chill haze I’ve seen before. Think perhaps the filtering was off or this keg had way too much yeast that made its way through. It definitely lessened the experience as though the yeast didn’t overpower the hops, it sure did make the whole a funky battle.
Please work on this and I’ll keep my fingers crossed and keep coming back to see what’s happening.

Pours a radient dark orange a bit cloudy with a small frothy head. Aroma is a good mix of hops and citrus fruit mainly tangeries and apricots, a bit bitter, but it mellows in the finish. It’s got a good full hop flavor that mixes well with the fruit. Nothing special, but also well made IPA.

Pours a gorgeous, cloudy, glowing burnt orange color with smallish head. Smell is fruity, hoppy and strongly of dried apricot. Taste is fruity, hoppy and big on the dried aprictot flavor. Very flavorful and moderately bittered. Big hop flavor and with less bitterness. Medium to full body with soft to medium carbonation. This is a really well made IPA with big apricot flavor that drinks well. Easily my favorite 512 beer so far. Well done!

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2011 Pours dark amber cloudy and golden. Small head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy. Flavor is malty and hoppy and taste a little mediciny. The taste has some leafy woody notes at the onset.
This is a good fall beer on a cool cloudy, misty day. Body is medium and finish is tart
Rating reflects cask version now.
On cask at the saucer. Copper colored with a large off-white head that lasts as long as it takes me to finish the pint. The nose is bitter resinous hoppy with some pine and bland malt notes. The taste is sweet and bitter hoppy with some citrus. It has a good carbonation and initial pinch but is medium bodied overall. The lace reminds me of fun times. The finish is deliciously a lingering bitter.
