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.)

Caramel colored with giant, bubbly head. Sour grapefruit overpowers the aroma, which also hints at more perfumey hops. An overwhelming sourness fills the mouth at first sip - a wall of grapefruit that eventually gives way to a nice, malty middle. The sourness carries through though, well into the finish. Somewhat cloying as well. This is pure hop juice and not much else, but I guess thatís the point? I wonder if some cellar time might subdue the hops a bit and let some of that nice maltiness come through.

THis is definitly one hell of a beer. Hoppy as hell with tons of bitterness. Also seems to have a somewhat syrupy sweetness in the background. While certainly a respectable beer, i cant really see myself buying it again. Flavor is almsot too intense too truly enjoy all the way through, so it ends up wearin on you near the end.

Man this is a one pony beer! Looks ok in the glass. Kind of murky but not too bad. Resinous head, very lacey. Nose is out of this world man. I love floraly IPA and this guy meets the freaking mark. Flowers go on and on and on. Malts are sweet smelling with a bit of a spicey bitter kick but all in all man the nose on this one is where itís at. Flavors die off and are bland. Donít even remotely live up to the nose. Not at all. Too sweet, not bitter enough. Palate is pretty standard.

Bottle, thanks rlb for sharing. Aroma was very piney a light wheat background. Pour was a amberish hue. Flavor was good, sweet at first but the hops really battled back. Palate was ok but the bitter tinny finish left you wondering. Overall ok.

A decent IPA that pours yellowish amber. One dimensional hop flavor. Taste reminds me of hot waffles and syrup (extra points) with subtle floral notes. Iíd drink it again, but not if I can get Stone or DFH.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2008 Bottle. Medium sized ivory head with fair lacing, fine, small and medium sized bubbles, transparent, carbonated, and an orange hue. Aroma was malty, caramel, hoppy and sweet. Flavor was sweet, very hoppy, dry, and bitter. Just way too hoppy for my palate. Smooth, hoppy mouthfeel.

looked and smelled great. pale copper, slightly cloudy, very little head. lots of sweetness to the aroma, and that reflected into the front end of the flavor, but the wheat backbone didnt have enough strength to offset all the hops. the bitterness was a little too much at the end, but still, a very enjoyable beer, even though i dont think this would make it into the IIPA category if i was the judge...a little more of a standard ipa.

Pours a transparent orange with a nice fluffy off-white head. Aroma is like mild mandarin oranges. Flavor is much more intense than the aroma. Flavorís like no IPA Iíve tried yet... very interesting. Not terribly bitter, but absolutely full of flavor. Alcohol is well hidden. I could drink this again. Purchased at Grapevine in Austin.

Hazy golden-amber colour. Fruity, earthy aroma with lots of fuggles. Fairly big hop flavour, albeit without a massive corresponding bitterness, with the earthiness of fuggles and foresty PNW varietals.
