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.

jackl (4299) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Tap @ Ginger Man, Dallas. Clear deep amber color with a medium off-white head. The nose is light peach and sweet syrup, some light grains and seagrass. The taste is light orchard fruits, light dry grassiness with a decent bouncy malt presence. Not bad. Easy-drinking with a medium body and prickly carbonation. Overall, a nice IPA.

Steve_0 (2532) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Tap. Poured a clear copper with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, tangerine, and light caramel. Taste is sweet grapefruit, tropical fruit, and light caramel. Starts out hoppy and bitter and ends that way, as well. Could really benefit from more of a malt presence. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Pretty good IPA, but could use some refining. Not bad.

Draft. Amber, slight orange hues, light white head. Pine in the nose with sweet malt. Oily across the tongue with sweet caramel malt. Balanced but assertive hops on the way out. Good beer.

high_on_hops (582) - Burlingame, California, USA - MAR 20, 2012
On tap. A dark gold color with a foamy off white head and lacing. A hoppy aroma with some pine. The flavor is strong hops up front, with a soft, slightly sweet middle and a strong bitter aftertaste. A smooth body too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiveacestx (538) - Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2012
On tap at Eno’s Pizza - amber with a light colored head with lacing. Not the most obvious IPA I’ve ever had but the hop presence was there in a dry sort of way. Average smooth body and a dry finish.

Clear amber with a medium sized off-white head and some lacing. Floral and caramel in aroma and flavor. OK, mild.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2012 Location: Draft at Flying Saucer Austin, 2/18/12

Aroma: The nose is citrus and floral hops, some caramel, and a little pine
Appearance: A cloudy orange color with a thick, creamy, lasting white head and fairly heavy
Flavor: The taste is fairly sweet, pretty well balanced, with a decent hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it is fairly creamy, with a smooth body and a dry finish
Overall Impression: This made for a nice IPA. I enjoyed this one quite a bit. It was probably my favorite of the local IPAs I tried on this trip to Austin.

Draft at Fort Worth Flying Saucer. Huh? Maybe I missed something or caught this on a bad night. For me it was non-descript and lacking hop influence. Okay but not a great IPA for me.
