Notes/Commercial Description:
(512) India Pale Ale is a big, aggressively dry-hopped American IPA with smooth bitterness (~65 IBU) balanced by medium maltiness. Organic 2-row malted barley, loads of hops, and great Austin water create an ale with apricot and vanilla aromatics that lure you in for more.

Smells like wet dog...and tastes like it as well. It's on tap at the Flying Saucer in Houston. Perhaps the lines were dirty or mot cleaned after the previous keg but this beer was undrinkable. I'll try again somewhere else. There's really not much more I can say about this beer.

Nutty-woody aroma... (but somewhat inhibited from smelling right now). Mild caramel flavors with a not so subtle nuttiness. Very light on the hops.. Mild bitterness that dissipates rather quickly. I want hops in my IPA, not pecans. I was convinced that this wasn't an IPA, but the 'tender swears it is!

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Served on-draught into a pilsner glass at a bar in Austin, Texas. Reviewed from notes. Cost was $5.00 USD.

A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.

Pours a half finger wide head of nice creaminess and thickness. Decent lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes.

Body colour is a semitranslucent semitransparent copper of average vibrance. No yeast particles are visible.

Sm: Floral hops, peach fruit, apricot fruit. Pale malts. Cream. No yeast or alcohol is detectable. A pleasant aroma of mild strength. The apricot is a highlight.

T: Floral hops, pale malts. Peach fruit esters. Cream. Pilsner malts. Balanced and subdued. Has a low intensity of flavour for the style. Average duration and depth of flavour. Not real complex or subtle. I do like it, but there's really nothing remarkable about it. It's got good cohesion.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Overcarbonated. Suits the flavour profile okay, but it doesn't seem custom-tailored specifically to it. Decent presence on the palate. Decent body.

Not oily, astringent, harsh, gushed, boozy, hot, or rough.

Dr: Drinkable, sure. It's certainly above average and is a likable IPA, but it's not world class by any means. I'll plan to revisit it for a more in-depth review; I did expect far better given its current high ratings. Hides its ABV well.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Hazy, dull dark straw color, white head that sheets the glass nicely with slow melting lace.

S - Citrusy hops with slight tang of pine, some soapiness, and fresh dough.

T - Rich and fairly malty (all thigs considered) with lots of hop bitterness. More pine sap than citrus. Some tropical fruit goin on too.

M - medium thick body with quite a bit of stickiness. Moderate bright carbonation.

D - This one grew on me. Not especially refined, but with plenty of good qualities and obvious craftsmanship.

3.5/5  rDev -14.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured at Stubbs in Austin. Pours a cloudy golden orange with barely any head in my pint glass. Sweet light citrus aroma, but not much else going on. Big on the bitter pine, and really highlights that aspect of the brew. Medium mouthfeel with lower than average carbonation. A decent beer but a bit one dimensional.

Serving type: on-tap
