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.)

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.

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.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Pours a deep autumnal amber with a loose white head that does stick around for a while. Aromas are heavily malty and caramel with some piney grapefruit in the background. The body is med. heavy. The flavor is heavily sweet with a good dose of piney hops but nothing over the top. The finish is med. bitter but not drying at all. I am really surprised that this rates this high. Good beer? Sure. But this is not a IIPA, it is an American strong ale. I’m glad they listed ingredients. Munich and Cara-Pils have no place in an IPA much less a IIPA. Pliny, which to me defines the style, actually has dextrose to thin the beer out, and these guys are using cara-pils???

Greets witha wonderful aroma. A medium hoppyness dictates the palate, with a long lasting mild bitterness, just the perfect amount. A medium body is slightly sticky and very drinkable. A small frothy head follows post of the way down.

Not blown away but this was good. Very bitter and a tad unbalanced. Better than brecks normal fare.

Absolutely one of the finest IPA’s I’ve had the pleasure to sample. This ale is amazingly easy to drink for having such a high alcohol content. Delicious!
