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.

This is one of my favorite readily available IPAs from Austin. 512 makes one of the most reliable out there, wish it was available in cans or bottles. It pours a nice deep golden color, with just enough pine and citrus on the nose. On the palate it is somewhat floral, but the malt is present enough to balance it out. A solid IPA.

Draft - Peach and huge tropical fruits. Cloudy orange with a thin beige head. Perfumy and fruity with a light bitterness. Very fruity and fun.

On tap at Hay Merchant Houston. I had heard great things about this, but honestly was underwhelmed. It was maltier than I like my IPAs. Not a great aroma. Just ok.

Draft into a shaker. Hoppy and sweet aroma. Slightly cloudy gold with thin white head. Nicely balanced. Hoppy but not overpowering. Orange, grapefruit, pine. Very smooth medium bodied. Clean finish.

Draft pour average golden. Nose great mango and fruit hop. Some sweetness. Taste grapefruit up front. Citrus and mango with tropical fruit hop. Balancing mid palate sweet. Pleasing bitter through the finish. Fairly thick mouth feel.

erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2014
Very hoppy, sharp grassy and citric hops, some more resiny ones, crisp biscuit malts. Sharp bitterness too, but I dig it a lot, it just works in this American combo, with my smoked bbq meat. (On tap at Stubbs BBQ restaurant Austin)

On draft. Faint aroma of soap. Slightly bitter, no particular flavors. Lots of malt. Meh.

On tap. Poured a nice clear golden yellow with white head. A very well-made, crisp, clean IPA. Clean PNW-ish pine flavor, a little early. A little unbalanced on the hop end, but what do you expect from an IPA? Nice beer.

Karibourgeois (3) - - NOV 23, 2013 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 Cloudy orange pour. Strong hoppy initial flavor with a slightly spicy finish.

Appearance is a little lacking in clarity. Well balanced but I feel like I deserve more hops. Perhaps this keg is old? Otherwise decent.
