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.

Appearance is a little lacking in clarity. Well balanced but I feel like I deserve more hops. Perhaps this keg is old? Otherwise decent.

Draft somewhere in my blurry visit to Austin. Definitely my favorite find in town. Solid, very citric IPA. Orange and amber, solid all the way around, definitely what Americans look for in an IPA. Well done. (#5239, 9/1/2013)

On tap @ Hopdoddy, SO-CO...Delicious! Lighter than some of the other local IPAs offered...The intent was not to over-load prior to the burger!! Back to beer: P: Served on tap in a chilled-goblet... A: Golden-orange, filtered, leaving a nice lacing 1.5" head...GREAT! T: Bright, clean nice hops up front...good tasty citrus (grapefruit), along with some other nice lingering pine notes.... P: Medium carbonation, medium bodied, great for the style :~) O: One of the best austin (or if you prefer TX beers)... I’ve had since moving to TX in April ’13....competes with the best of the NW IPA for sure...go ahead try one, it won’t disappoint...Bucket head ipa (thirsty planet brewing...which to be honest is getting a ’BAD-RAP’ at a rating of 89/74...they should at least be in the low ’90s...)...Also, lost coast ipa (Real Ales/in Blanco TX) does a VERY FINE ipa!!....Chasin’ cheers :~)

I featured this beer on an episode of Locapour: http://locapour.tv/austin/512ipa It’s a great beer. One of the must haves in Austin. You can find it around town at just about any place that believes customers deserve to drink great craft beer.

Appearance is a beautiful lions mane orange. Aroma is of fresh fruit. Taste is of apricots and peaches. Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated and then the bitterness fades in at the end and lasts for the aftertaste in which the apricot and peaches taste still remains. Overall a well balanced beer with a great fruity flavor and adequate alcohol presence. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Theydon_Bois (8692) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Tap at the Hey Merchant, Houston, 21/05/13. Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin off white head. Good lacing ensues. Nose is pale malt, hops, light vegetal notes, bitter orange. Taste comprises orange pith, caramel, sugars, hops, light pine. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish. Average IPA - entry level affair.

BMMillsy (1367) - Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Poured at Stubbs cloudy golden orange. Sweet light citrus aroma. Big on the bitter pine. Medium mouthfeel. A decent beer but a bit one dimensional.

zach8270 (3472) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 24, 2013
(draft @ The Esquire - San Antonio, TX) Hazy gold pour with a fluffy white head. Bitter and grassy hop aroma with some mild citrus. Flavor is definitely more the dry and bitter hop than the juicy citrus hops. Smooth however and easy drinking.
