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.

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 (4698) - 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"

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.

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

50belair (2507) - Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2011
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 (7154) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.
