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.)

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 isn’t enough other flavor there to match the bitterness. Even as a standard IPA I would call this weak flavored.

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 IPA’s 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.

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.

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 don’t 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.

This one of the best IPAs I’ve tasted! Not a lot of head to it but what’s there lingers on and on, and is white and foamy. The color is a cloudy golden amber, almost opaque but not quite. The aroma is sweet, a little fruity, grainy, and very pleasing. It tastes sweet, a bit sticky at first, but the hops take over quickly and it becomes citrusy and bitter. It finishes that way too, and the bitterness is like grapefruit peel on the tongue. I like this one very much and I hope the "small" batch is big enough for me to find it again!

Head is small, white, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing but lasting.<P>The aroma is malty with light/moderate notes of caramel, toasted bread crust; Hoppy with light notes of dried apricot, grapefruit oil. moderate note of resin/pine; Trace miscellaneous note of chewable vitamin C tabs.<P>The flavor is heavily bitter, light/moderately sweet, lightly acidic with a very long, abrasive, heavily bitter, lightly/moderately sweet, lightly astringent finish. Unbalanced and abusive on the palate.<P>The body is medium, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively. Find this quite a different beer than my last tasting.<P> --<P> Orig. rating: 7/4/7/4/14.<P>Bottle to a snifter. Beer pours a murky, medium orange-amber color with a white, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing head that leaves scant lacing on the glass.<P>The aroma is hoppy, but not so hoppy that all of the other aromas are obliterated: Malty with moderate notes of cookie, caramel and toasted grain; Heavily hoppy with vivid notes of grapefruit, dried apricot, resin/pine, herbs and chamomile flowers; Moderate-to-heavy yeast notes of damp basement and horse blanket; Miscellaneous aromas include a moderate-to-heavy note of black tea and trace notes of peaches and honey.<P>The flavor is heavily sweet and moderately bitter with a long, moderately sweet, moderate-building-to-heavily bitter, lightly acidic finish the bears a nice alcoholic warmth down to the tummy.<P>The body is light-to-medium, the texture is watery and the carbonation is average.

bottle. LIght clear orange coloring with healthy egg white head. hops, skunked, earthy aroma. Hops, grassy, pear, carbonarted taste with an interesting bite. The bite is similar to drinking a Reisling? Very unique. Agree that its better than most Breck beers but nothing too special.
