(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.

a – strong C-hops. Grassy. caramel bleeds through. smells great.

a – off white head lingers and laces. beautiful orange/copper. no detected haze.

f – strong hop flavor without puckering bitterness. excellent malt backbone for what seems as an aggressively late hopped beer. some caramel sweetness. grassy.

m – well carbonated. medium body. maybe a bit of astringency but very slight.

o – this is what an American IPA should be. great hop flavor from late additions. strong dry hopped nose. enough gravity to balance the IBUs.

This was my first experience with an IPA on Nitro. We shot an episode of Locapour at Craft Pride in Austin while they were featuring (512) IPA on Nitro.

You can check the episode out here to get a sense of the experience: http://locapour.tv/austin/512ipa

I have been a huge fan of this beer ever since I moved to Austin back in 2011. It was on of the first local Austin craft beers I had upon my arrival. Not only is it a great IPA but it can be found at just about any bar or restaurant around town that takes beer seriously.

The Nitro experience was wild. (512) IPA is very hoppy and has a very sharp finish that I would describe as almost peppery. But, the Nitro presentation rounds that out with a creamy texture and allow you to experience the beer in a whole new way. The flavors are there...they just feel different.
