On tap at the Plano Gingerman. The beer pours an orange-yellow color with an off-white head. The aroma is strong on the orange hops with some caramel malt mixed in. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of orange with some piney hops mixed in. The strong caramel backbone keeps the bitterness level low, but still allows all of the hop flavors to come through. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

A: Pours a slightly hazy dark red color. A two finger white head forms that sticks around for a minute. The foam recedes to a ring that sticks throughout. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: Big citrus aromas up front. Grassy and floral hops that is lightly herbal and tea like. Very green up front. A great caramel, bread, and biscuit balance lingers on.
T: Follows the nose. Lots of citrus hop flavors. Grassy, floral, and herbal. A nice sweetness of caramel balances everything out. A substantial, but not overpowering bitterness lingers. Just every so slightly astringent though.
M/D: A medium body that is perfectly crisp and dry. Smooth at the same time. Very textured. Really easy and refreshing to drink. I can quaff several of these with ease.

A very nice APA. Ranks up there with Pecan Porter and the Wit as their best go to year round beers. Really enjoyable and highly recommended.

Served on-tap at the Crown & Anchor Pub. Pitcher into a standard pint glass.

(512)'s Pale pours a deceptively hazy amber-orange body with a big, fluffy head that doesn't budge for quite some time. Minimal lacing, but that's likely a result of the glassware. Enticing aroma, with fresh fruit and piny hops dominating. A modest backbone of biscuit & caramel malt makes an appearance, but the sweet, lighter yeast & hop notes are the showcase here.

Flavor falls a bit outside of the Pale Ale style, as a lengthy hop bitterness pushes the IBU's into the IPA range. Malts taste a bit roasted and slightly burnt, but a floral hop kick and sweet fruit notes of mango and apple make for a tasty flavor profile overall. However, the body is a bit on the thick side, and although it's well carbonated, the bitter finish wears at the drinkability. Overall, a decent Pale Ale by an up-and-coming Austin brewery. Made for some easy drinking on a hot May afternoon.

Pours a nice cloudy orange amber color with white head and some nice lacing. Smell is fruity malt and very lightly hoppy. Smell of dried apricot, and some yeasty musty funk to it. Taste is moderately hoppy with solid bitterness and a fruity apricot flavor. Perhaps some vanilla or some unexpected musty flavor. Medium bodied and average carbonation. Solid pale, but a bit odd tasting.

On tap at (512) second anniversary party, 28 Aug 2010.

Served in a ~12 oz. TWO glass. Small light tan head. Minimal carbonation. Dark copper color, somewhat cloudy. Aroma is light, caramel and a little resin. Moderate caramel and citrus throughout. Sligh bit of resin too. Light to medium body. Moderate ethanol.

Refreshing light lingering bitter finish.

Reviewed 12/6/2009 (draft @ Flying Saucer, Houston, TX):

Pours a turbid orange colored body, creamy white head, lasting. Cirusy hoppy aroma. Some pine, and some dryness. Creamy taste. Some hoppiness but balanced pretty good. Some dryness, and nutty fruitiness too. Hoppy and tasty.

A- Full orange color almost borders on red. Solid lacing from a solid head

S- Very fresh hop aromas with no distinct flavor but leaning towards grapefruit more than pine

T- Full flavor that lasts for as long as you could want it. Not too sweet, certainly not too bitter for a hophead

M- Pretty heavy feeling for a 5.5%ABV pale ale but remains refreshing with a silky carbonation

O- Solid beer with some of the freshest hop flavor I've had in a long time
