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.)

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Clear amber body with a quickly diminishing white head. Citrus, pine, whole grains, licorice-esque alcohol, lots of caramel, some mild acitiy and a hint of grapefruit. The body is smooth and drinkable, but a bit heavy with some residual sweetness and plenty of alcohol. The flavor starts fairly sweet and turns mildly bitter toward the finish. The lack of substantial bitterness makes me think this may not be exceedingly fresh. The flavor is nice as there is a decent malt profile before tasty, yet mild, hops proffer pine, citrus and subdued bitterness. While enjoyable, not excellent.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Shared a bomber of this with Duane right after I had a bottle of DFH 60 minute IPA. Some malty aromas floating around in the glass, as well as some hops, but nothing stood out. Some malts up front, but the finish was less hoppy than I expected it to be. Well balanced though, with a nice medium mouthfeel.

barleyPops (1141) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2006
bomber picked up at Piccadilly in Champaign and shared with illini08. a grassy pine aroma with a hint of malt. poured a slightly hazy copper color with an off-white head which settles to a thin layer of lace. alcohol is hidden well but there could stand to be a bit more malt in this one for my tastes. a good but not great IIPA.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Bottle. Pours amber with some slight haze. Aroma is fruity, with some notes of citrus and caramel. Flavor is pretty much all hops with very little complexity or balance from the malt. Mouth feel is resiny. Finishes dry, bitter, and oily. If you want hops and thats it, this is a beer for you. If you want a little more complexity, this will fall short.

sloth (2443) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Medium sized offwhite head, good retention and lace thats sticky, web like. Lightly hazy gold hued brew with a peachy glow. Nose is fruity, citrus, resiny with a bit of fried wiring in there. Med/full body, resiny, lightly chewy, nice texture. Tongue is greeted with heavy pine and citrus notes, caramel malts along for the ride, grapefruit clinging to my palate, oiliness is kool! Finish is lightly sweet, fruity, juicey and sticky. A nice IPA! Props to The_Beer_God for this trade.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2006
Hazy amber color with a moderate somewhat rocky light beige head. Heavy citric aroma and lightly over-ripe fruit, including pineapple and peaches with just a touch of brown sugar. Light mild malt start, followed by a simple fruit syrup flavor. A mild acidity overtakes the mouth in the finish just in time for a burst of alcohol to show up and scorch the nostril hairs. This does nothing for me, no complex malts, no hops tramping about. Tastes like a hyped ale without any balance. This one just confuses me. The alcohol thins things out in the finish and the whole thing just becomes a simple sugar and hops soup.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - JAN 4, 2006
after trying this i am surprised to see the abv so high and now it makes since they call this a double ipa. never thought it really tasted tike a double. but i guess if you bost a 9% and are hoppy then yes. we had ours at the breckenridge denver location. quite a surprise, most of their beer are decent but not out of this world. nice pine grapefruit solid bodied palate with a fuzzy earthen grass nose. prost baby!

I didn’t know how to describe this, but "a big sweet mouthful" is a great way to describe it. Amber in colour. Head disappears quickly.

Pours orange/yellow with fluffy white head which laces nicely on the glass. Nose is citrusy and hoppy. Smooth mouthfeel. Orange and citrus flavors dominate the light malta character. Well balanced bitterness in the finish.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Orangey and lemony aroma. Soft, starchy malt body - way too thick. Sticky pine cones littered with flower petals. Little depth or complexity here, just extra malt and hops. Fairly bitter finish. Amazingly unexciting for an IIPA.
