Notes: (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.

Pours a gorgeous, cloudy, glowing burnt orange color with smallish head. Smell is fruity, hoppy and strongly of dried apricot. Taste is fruity, hoppy and big on the dried aprictot flavor. Very flavorful and moderately bittered. Big hop flavor and with less bitterness. Medium to full body with soft to medium carbonation. This is a really well made IPA with big apricot flavor that drinks well. Easily my favorite 512 beer so far. Well done!

I'll admit I'm getting sick of huge citrusy IPAs, but this beer still holds up. Finishes well with a hop bite that's somewhat flowery. I expected more.

12oz bottled 7-17-20, opened 7-31-20.
3 finger off -white head of dense and rocky foam. Excellent retention with thick, sticky lacing left behind early.
Brilliant and glowing golden-amber. Very good clarity.
Thick rings of lace cover the back wall of the glass.
Hoppy nose - apricot, floral, pine, orange.
Big stone fruit flavor, apricot early turns into marmalade later. All the while floral and piney hop flavors are intertwined. Melon late. Hefty malt base carries it all along, no problem...light breadiness and a hint of caramel.
Soft mouthfeel, long lasting head provides a creamy texture on entry. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and lengthy bitter finish.
Outstanding.
