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.

GreatDane1632 (1116) - Alabama, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Rated based on notes taken 22 Sep 2012 -- zero notes, just a rating. 5.0 on untapped means business. But I have to adjust for inflation.

BVery (8056) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Tap at Petrol Station. Murky lighter orange pour with a white clingy head. Oddly mild aroma given the big fruity hop taste in this. Quite good - wish the aromatics were stronger.
