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.

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

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 18, 2012
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.

Deep orange pour, nice thick head. Aromas of grapefruit and pine. Balance is very good with a clean finish. One of the best IPA’s from TX

jzzbassman (1522) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Tap at Gingerman Ft. Worth. Pours orange with a firm white head. Grapefruit aroma, with some florals. Earthy hops, light sweetness with a bit of bitterness, more like an aggressive APA but very drinkable.

jbeatty (1098) - New York, USA - DEC 28, 2011
On tap at Ginger Man Austin. Nose is thick with piney grapefruit hops, fresh, light biscuit malts on the end. Taste mirrors the nose, with juicy grapefruit, light sweetness, and long bitter piney finish. Medium body, a little dry. Could use a little more malt to balance the resinous hops, but overall a decent IPA for those seeking a good hop kick.

rougeau13 (2025) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Pours hazy golden-amber with puffy head that laces all the way down. Aroma is grapefruit and floral hops. Taste is grapefruit and floral hops. Bitterness is mild, and so is malt and sweetness. Medium bodied, nice IPA.
