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.

At the Brewery. Kevin and Nate put on a cask conditioned IPA just for our homebrew club. Life is sweet!

Poured a seven finger belgian style head of foam. Yes there were some foaming issues here. But no big deal. They weren't trying to serve a bar ful of people...
Smell: Quite a bit different than their regular IPA which I just had a pint of. The yeast is much more apparent than the hops here. More of a bready , yeasty character along with the Simcoe/ Cascade nose. Very nice aroma.
Taste: Nice hops , citrusy piney, along with the malty breadiness of this.
Moutfeel: Very creamy mouthfeel. Did I mention that this was poured out of a guiness tap -- sort of a poor man's sparkler?
Drinkability: tried to have another but the keg quickly ran out. I love IPA's and I love them on cask even more.
A wonderful beer. If you see it on cask DO NOT HESITATE!! Order 2 pints and you'll be glad you did.
