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.

jzzbassman (1523) - 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 (1171) - 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 (2136) - 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.

onceblind (5206) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2011
GABF 2011. Clear briliant gold, with a small fluffy white head. Smells strongly of citic and pine hops, on a semi-sweet background of light malts. Big bodied with just a little linger, and a little too imbalanced. Too much herbal/citric/floral hoppy bitterness without much malty sweetness to back it up. A little too "west-coast"

GODiSSOUTHERN (389) - Virginia, USA - NOV 7, 2011
The best Texas IPA I have tasted so far. Pours copper with nice white head. Citrus and tropical fruit. Very smooth hop flavor with just the right amount of malt backbone.

10.14.2011 - Houston, TX On Tap A tad sour overall but delightfully full of bittery hops. Well brewed and constant. Would definetly recommend it.

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
