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.)

AndrewM (126) - Waco (Buckle of the Bible Belt), Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2005
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.

Oakes (12633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 10, 2005
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.

3fourths (8055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Slightly hazy golden orange color. Sweet pungent nose of pineapple and orange hop scents. Fresh and leafy sweet pine and juicy lemons and peaches. Very well made and even though itís a hop monster, itís more balanced than most doubles.

argo0 (11555) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 3, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 (2-4-06, 22oz bottle) Healthy off-white head atop a clear light amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, some cookie, caramel, floral. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, floral, cookie/caramel. The dry hopping is evident in both the aroma and taste -- hops strong but not overly bitter. Medium body that gives no hint of the alcohol wallop this beer holds. (7/4/8/4/15)

(10-3-05, draft) Clear amber body with white head, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, pineapple. Taste is medium sweet, pineapple, light grapefruit. Medium body, light resin. One-dimensional, but nice. (7/4/7/3/14)

antzman (315) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2005
22 oz bomber. This pours a light copper with a medium white head that clings to the glass. Sweet hoppy aroma. Excellent flavor that has quite a bit of hops in the finish. Very nice mouthfeel. This is a good Imperial IPA.

chilehead (186) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Pours dark amber with a thick head. Nose has cedar, green apples, and copper notes with, of course, hops. Mouth feel is rich and thick, a perfect match for the overall intensity of this double. Taste is not quite as complex as the best, but a nice brew nonetheless. Of course, Iím a sucker for imperial ipas.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Copper colored with a nice sized cream colored head. Quite foamy with different sized bubbles and nice lace. Aroma is a very spicy hop smell. Grapefruit and nice strong citrus hops. Hops mostly over power other aromas however a creamy malt is barely apparent. Nice bitterness. Strong sitcky resin hops. Grapefruit and other citrus; piney and full envelops the palate with bitterness. A decent strengty alcohol is present but it really is entwined well with the hop bitterness. It is not harsh and compliments the bitterness well. As it gets warmer some malts are emerging. A plesant sweetness is apparent up front and then is wisked away by the strong bitterness.

segfault (103) - Centennial, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Light amber, white head, tight lace. Spicy nose of hops and slight malts. Smooth mouthfeel. Starts with a sweet and toasty maltiness with tangerine and develops into a great hoppiness of the C-type as the malt fades. Leaves a short aftertaste of toasty malts and bitterness. Not as bitter as I expected, but very good.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2005
Bottle - thx goldtwins for grabbing me one. Orangey copper pour. Huge pine and citrus aroma, with some malty sweeteness in the back. More huge pine and citrus hop flavors, with a decent backing of sweet caramel malt. Big somewhat-harsh bitter bite at the end. For 9.2%, I felt the alcohol was extremely well hidden. Very nice IIPA.
