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.

brokensail (11600) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a golden amber color with a big white head and some spotty lacing. S: A nice bit of sweet tropical fruits and citrus on the nose along with a substantial caramel malt base. A fair amount of grapefruit notes and subtle pine. T: The flavor tends toward the sweet side initially, mostly caramel and some brown sugar. The hops come shortly after and have a nice bitterness to them. Some slightly bitter and slightly sweet grapefruit, too. M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation. Kind of heavy and chewy for an IPA. D: For a sweeter IPA, I found this one to actually be quite drinkable and enjoyable. A very nicely balanced beer.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2010 Growler thanks to thirdeye11. Pours with a copper body and a large tan head. Aroma is quite hoppy with some pine needles, mango, apricot and earth. Taste is really nice with caramel and a nice hoppy, pine like punch. Light bubbles. Really a solid IPA! Quite drinkable!
Lots of tangarine when rerating, pretty awesome.

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.

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
Draught at Opal Divine’s Freehouse, Austin, Oct. 18. Pours a clear deep gold with a small frothy white head. Nice hoppy and fruity aroma, a bit sweet as well. Flavour of resiny hops, grain and bready malt (7-). Decent bitter finish. Average bodied. I liked the aroma slightly more then the flavour but overall it’s pretty good.
