(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.

On tap poured into a shaker pint glass. Beer pours a orange color, lightly hazy, with a finger of loose white foam head. Head dissipates a little after a few minutes with some minor lacing. A bit of carbonation floating up every now and then.

Nose is grapefruit and orange peel, and light pine hops combined with toasted malts.

Taking a sip, mainly bitter grapefruit pith, with the sweeter citrus and pine fighting to come through. Mid tongue, light toasted and caramel malt sweetness through to the dry finish with lingering grapefruit.

Light to medium body with gentle carbonation. Easy to drink IPA, but lacking the fruity hop flavors I enjoy.

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.
