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 from a 64oz. growler from The Sugar Shack / Wholefoods, Sugarland, TX.
Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Poured fairly aggressively and ended up with about 2 1/2 finger off white foamy head that diminished pretty quickly. Color is translucent honey.

S: A faint apricot nose, not overpowering aromatics here.

T: Again, some apricot, citrus up front, followed by nice malt middle and dry pine finish,(not a bad thing.)

M: The carbonation is light to moderate with plenty of bubbles streaming up from the bottom of the glass. Nice peppery finish.

O: Really nice IPA that hides the ABV(7%) well and is easy to drink. Another nice offering from our neighbors to the West of H Town.

3.6/5  rDev -12.2%

Served on tap into a nonic glass.

A- Poured a dark orange with a soapy off-white head that left minimal lace.

S- Pungent grapefruit, pine, and some light caramel malt. Pretty aromatic.

T- Big grapefruit and sweet caramel malt notes, quite a bit of soapy notes and moderate bitterness.

M- Soft carbonation, lighter bodied, and a slightly watery finish.

O- A decent IPA. I didn't care so much for the soapy notes in the flavor and the watery finish, but a decent drinkable IPA.
