Let me start at the end and work backwards.

I could drink this stuff until I fall of the chair. This is exactly the sort of beer that I like to sit down with and drink all night long. It's got plenty of character and bags of flavour. There's a vague hint of citrus but not too overpowering, and the hops don't hit you in the face. I like a hoppy beer but not purely for the sake of it - there's got to be a reason and a malt balance. If I was given this in a blind tasting I might almost call it Belgian, although I'd know that it wasn't.

(512) is one of the best reasons I can think of for living in Austin.

On tap at the Plano Gingerman. The beer pours an orange-yellow color with an off-white head. The aroma is strong on the orange hops with some caramel malt mixed in. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of orange with some piney hops mixed in. The strong caramel backbone keeps the bitterness level low, but still allows all of the hop flavors to come through. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Dark gold (6+) draft pour with no cap and no lace; good clarity. Pineapples aroma. Pineapples and light hop flavors. Medium lite mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Overall, a light, juicy, tropical fruit linger That is quite enjoyable.
