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.

Served on tap at The Holy Grail Pub in Plano, TX.

A: Pours a hazy to cloudy amber with a finger tall white head. The head dissipates quickly leaving a thing ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass only. Small amounts of lacing present.

S: Lots of hops - citrus, grass, grapefruit, and pine notes are present.

T: Complex flavors - grassy, pine, and citrus hops but not super intense. Well balanced and definitely not too hoppy. Proper amount of bitterness and a nice flavor profile.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation but slightly on the thin/watery side.

O: Very easy to drink, likely because the hops and bitterness are not too intense and over the top. Pairs very well with spicy food as both accentuate the flavors of each other.

This is my all time favorite IPA. Hands down. I am so proud that it is coming out of my hometown. I am just bummed out they aren't bottling this yet. I need to be able to drink this at home, take this with me on trips and ship it to my beer nerd friends.

I've had this at tons of bars all around town and even at the brewery. Consistently good.

Appearance: A beautiful hazy golden orange hue which radiates from the glass like the contents of the pulp fiction briefcase.

Aroma: Citrus, grass and beautiful Rio Star grapefruit.

Taste: Not at all light on the hop end. It's big and bitter with not too much citrus/grapefruit (which I think ruins a lot of IPA's). I'm guessing cascade hops, would love to know what(else) they're using. Wonderfully complex. Some great pine and grassy flavors. Creamy and inviting. Nice dry finish

Mouthfeel: Beautifully effervescent, a well balanced beer, not too weighty and not at all thin.

Overall: Perfect. If only they made a session version which I could drink all day. My standby beer at bars around town. I have been drinking this since it first hit the taps and am not tiring of it whatsoever. The one beer to seek out for you out of towners!
