Have you ever had an India Pale Ale (IPA) that is just amazing? One that is bursting with hops but still very drinkable and enjoyable? If you have, you know what I mean. If you haven’t, or even if you’ve never head of IPA, that’s ok because I’ll show you what I mean. IPA is a beer style that celebrates hops, a key ingredient in beer. Some IPA’s are often tamed and subdued. Not the (512) IPA. Fashioned in the great Northwestern style born in Seattle and thriving down though Portland and into Northern CA, the (512) IPA will be a rich copper colored medium bodied ale with smooth bitterness that balances a medium malt character topped off with an earthy bouquet of pungent hops flavor and aroma. After growing up in San Antonio and spending five years in Austin, I spent 10 years on the west coast where I learned what hops can really do to beer. When a sufficient amount of hops is used at precisely the right time during the brewing process, the bitterness, flavor and aroma can come together to create an amazingly enjoyable taste profile. (512) IPA will showcase domestic hops, domestic malted barley and American ale yeast in a combination sure to be a local favorite in no time.
