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.

Amber (9) pour with off white head; decent cap and retention; heavy lacing. Bitter hops and slightly earthy nose. Light bitter earthy hops moderated by lite caramel malt base. Medium plus carbonation and medium lite mouthfeel. Overall a solid IPA with lite bitter linger.

It now can be confirmed how much affect water has on beer. There is a twang to this beer that I get from many beers in Michigan....the description of this beer has vanilla....which I get....but don't like in ales. Stouts porters...no problem. In any event I don't know what it is in the water that gives some beers this weird twang but anyhow...this beer poured a clear golden with white head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent is ripe fruit. The taste is apricot with weird twang. The Mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall I don't like the twang.

It's been a long time coming. Last I enjoyed a 512 IPA was 2013. Had a couple pints today in Houston. Muted gold pour, neither hazy nor clear. Aroma of crisp citrus, light floral notes and a little earth. Taste is on the balanced side of kiwi, apricot, orange rind, bready malt and tea. Nice bitter finish rounds out an excellent balanced experience. My palate has come a long way since 2013 but this beer is still a favorite.
