COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppy? Brother, 471 redefines hoppy. 471 is a small batch, limited edition ale that was created by our Brewmaster to separate the weak from the strong. 471 is a double IPA, that combines Pale, Munich, Caramel-30, Carapils and Torrified Wheat malts, with Chinook, Centennial, Simcoe and Fuggles hops. It has a big sweet mouthfeel, followed by more hoppiness than you've ever had at one time. Enjoy. (Available at Breckenridge Pubs and Restaurants and bottled as 471 Small Batch Double Hopped IPA.)

I never got massive or redefining hops from this one. It was hoppy, but nothing close to some other hop-monsters that I have tasted. Not bad, but it was overly sweet and fruity I thought. It tasted reather like apple juice. Canít say that I enjoyed it enough to get another one.

This is an in you face ass kicking aroma coming from this. Tons of resiny grapefruity hops. Massive hops and a sheer delight to inhale. Very malty and a well balance job with the hops. Very nice

pours a clear hazy orange...with little head. Aroma is crap...nothing to it. Taste is semi sweet floral hops...but also artificial sweetener. Flavor is floral hops...not much else. They really missed the ball on this one. Mouthfeel is watery and syrupy.

jazz88 (2564) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 2, 2006
Bottle. A golden color with a light foamy head. A grassy hop aroma with a semi-sweet malt grass earth flavor with a touch of cardboard. Dry at the finish, slightly warming, with a bitter aftertaste.

mkgrenwel (576) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - APR 1, 2006
Bottle shared by IMthe Optimator. Very light nose of caramel and bits of cirtic and floral hops. Flavor is light as well, with some fruitiness. Reminds me of a caramel apple. Very little hop flavor, but ample bitterness. I guess there just isnít enough other flavor there to match the bitterness. Even as a standard IPA I would call this weak flavored.

DYCSoccer17 (3355) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 1, 2006
Bottle shared by IMtheOptimator. Sweet candy sugars in the aroma, with a serious lack of hoppiness in the nose...this does not even resemble an IPAís aroma. Slightly floral hops are appreciated. Smells more like an English barleywine. Transparent, filtered copper color with a foamy light tan/khaki colored head. Not a fan of the filtration at all. Sweet malty caramelized flavors to start--turning a mildly floral hopped flavor. Slightly bitter and ethanolic finish. Tastes much more like a barleywine. Breckenridge only wishes this beer was as aggressively hopped as their website claims.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - APR 1, 2006
Bottle courtesty of secret santa. Poured amber with a creamy white head. Bizarre aroma of maple syrup, apple, pear, a touch of hops. Flavor is light citrus and pine, with some slightly sweet grainy malt. Seems to have more bitterness than actual hop flavor.

RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2006
I was not a fan of this stuff. It was actually a big disappointment. This was so syrupy/sticky/sugary that I couldnt get past it. Hoppy? I donít think so. This was a very pathetic attempt to create a heavily hopped beer. Very little IPA style came through. Sampled on tap at the Flying Saucer in Houston.

Nice copper color with a medium frothy head on top. Intense hay nose - kinda sweet. Marple Syrup taste first with a nice long lasting grassy aftertaste.
