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.

Draft... Medium orange, great tope head, cap covers forever, great lacing... Smells nice, oranges, lots of citrus notes, but hopes take a back seat until a light pine finish, needs a touch more balance to be awesome... Super bitter and hoppy, no malt or sweetness, so its a a180 from the nose, I like it a lot but again if balanced would be world class

On tap at the Flying Saucer in H-town. Hazy burnt orange pour with a white head. Fruit and hop aromas. A real nice IPA with tropical fruit and citrusy hop aromas supported by a sturdy caramel malt backbone.

On tap at flying saucer Houston. P hazy chestnut with a soapy white head. Nose is grassy and citrus hoops. Sweet but balanced. Taste is similar with a touch more pine SAP than the nose. Like this beer a lot and understanding why it has been deemed a "staff favorite". Drinkable but complex!

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 4, 2011
On cask at petrol station. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a bit of citrus but is mainly full of dank pine and earthy notes. Flavor begins with a nice citrus note that is overtaken by resinous pine with a bit of a dank note.

On tap at some bar in Austin, TX (not Ginger Man). Deep orange color with frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit hops and sweet caramel malt. Taste is quite bitter with a nice sweet balance. Mouthfeel has moderate carbonation and smooth, finishes dry. Very good IPA.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Another tap offering from the Ginger Man in Austin, TX. Slightly hazy light amber with a short and stubborn cream white head. Modest citrus aroma with some fresh baked biscuity notes. More citrusy hops in the flavor along with some spicy herbal character, mild caramel, vanilla and a stiff set of malt rails. Full and refreshing texture and a dry, mildly bitter finish. Overall a nicely balanced and very drinkable IPA.
