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.)

Pours a bright, coppery/orange with a longstanding, fluffy, off-white head that falls in peaks and laces with authority. Intense pine aroma to start, revealing some artificial florals (deodorant) amidst acrid urine notes. Flavor finds the hops losing their intensity within a watery body. Malt sweetness creeps in, but alcohol flattens it out (itís a good alcohol kick, thoí). Bitter finish is pine resin to the point of being chemical with a honey sweetness to take off most of the edge. Definitely not a "top of the line" DIPA like DFH90, 3FDreadnaught or Avery Maharaja.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - MAR 10, 2006
light golden color with a small head, but with nice lacing. Sweet malt smell, and hoppy but not flowery or citrusy like some IIPAs, but more earthy. Taste sweet malt, leather, dirt(but not in a bad way...okay call it earthy!) with a bitter dry finish. A drinkable IIPA but certainly not in the high echelon. ..."more hoppiness than youíve ever had at one time"? well, maybe not, but Iíll forgive the commercial description for now.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - MAR 8, 2006
The bottle poured a slightly hazy amber-orange colored beverage with a large, creamy off-white head that was mostly lasting and left excellent lacing on the glass. The aroma was complex with a light malt presence represented by notes of straw; the moderate hop presence was evidenced by notes of grass and grapefruit; and the yeast, by notes of leather. The body was medium to full with lively carbonation and a creamy texture. The finish was long with a slight astringency and light alcohol warmth. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and the finish was lightly bitter. This one was a real pleasure to drink.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - FEB 27, 2006
(bottle) Hazy orange-gold with only a small white head. Some lace. Rich hops aroma (pine). Citrus hops predominates the flavor, but some malt, vanilla in there as well.

Sincere (145) - wichita, Kansas, USA - FEB 26, 2006
Pours a dark yellow, opaque, with a very thick head that leaves ringed lacing. Smells like vanilla and hops. Very active carbonation. The taste starts off sweet and crisp and ends very bitter and skunky. I enjoy the beginning much more than the end and aftertaste that lingers quite a while. Still a decent brew.

Skycast (7) - Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2006 does not count
It is slightly murky with a large white head upon pouring. A wonderful hops aroma assaults your sense when it approaches your nose; if you love hoppy beers, this is very enticing. This initially has a strong malty flavor and finishes with a nice hoppy bite. Not the best heavily hopped beer Iíve had, but not the worst either. The texture is a little too "thick" for the flavor.

JorisPPattyn (7969) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2006
Slowly receding white rim over clear orange-amber beer. Hops, typical C-hís but all the same restrained, well balanced by biscuit-like malts. Very perfumed but in the best, discreet way. Bitterish taste, nowhere extreme, grapes, sweet and dried but just before the raisin stage. C-hops and their TASTE without excess metallic bitterness. Slick MF, slightly oily; medium to full bodied. Nice, better as expected for this brewery, pleasant surprise at the Essen 2006 International tasting.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2006
By far the best beer this brewery bottles. Huge Pacific Northwest hop signature...grapefruit/citrus/pine resin...and some floral notes as well. Somewhat lighter malt presence than I would have liked, but still quite enjoyable. These would certainly be considered good session material.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2006
I was surprised at the strong abv, skillfully hidden beneath a generous helping of grapefruit, pine, and a bit of the floral hop scents and bitterness. The caramel malt flavors helpbalance out the taste, perhaps more than one would desire in an IIPA. Very good, but it suffers by comparison to the many BIG brews of the style out there. Still, great faire for the hophead that is me.

A first taste this beer as a bit of a bitter bite which is not cool. However, as more is consumed, that bite goes away, and you are left with a wonderful hoppy bear that goes down smooth. Not the best, but not bad.
