Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: wagenvolks on 08-20-2010

Our 2nd Anniversary release is an Double IPA heavily hopped with over 4 lbs/bbl of Simcoe, Magnum, Nugget and Ahtanum. This is a big, malty ale with delicate hop and rich malt aroma, complex hop flavor and sustained smooth hop bitterness. Hops are added from beginning to end during the brewing process and, like most (512) ales, this one is made using over 80% USDA certified organic ingredients. Not to be missed.

Solid brew from my hometown.

Appearance was fine, although I'm not terribly particular about the coloration as long as an IPA doesn't start looking like a porter. It poured foamy but settled quickly.

Smell was not particularly bold. It didn't make me say "wow that's a double IPA." Hops were apparent and slightly citrus.

Taste seemed to almost deteriorate. It went from pleasantly crisp to lacking something. I almost feel that this is a Double at 9% that tastes like a single at 7%. It tastes like a very good IPA, but not as hoppy as something like Myrcenary.

Mouthfeel is good. Overall this is a beer that I would love to order again in a pint.

32 oz growler from Growlers.

Pours an orange color, lightly hazy, with a eggshell colored head. Aroma was citrusy, but had a fairly predominant pale malt sweetness. Taste was citrusy, with a little pineapple, and a somewhat yellow cake-like malt sweetness. Good slick oily mouthfeel, with a medium body and good carbonation.

Fairly tasty, but not quite wowing.
