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.)

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2005
Rusty orange colour, good carbonation, thin white head. Spicy aroma, well hopped, fragrant and floral. Flavour is very hoppy and ends with a mix of spice and bitterness.

csbosox (1216) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - AUG 8, 2005
22oz bottle. Served at 51.5° in my NB worthy glass. Got at Goebels liquors in Wichita, KS (best beer store in KS?). Pours golden orange with a small white head. The beer shows hanging dots when swirled. The aroma is perfumy, with citrus and a fair amount of pine. The beer is pretty malty, sweet, and very piney at first and the bitterness erupts a resionous bitter flavor into the back of the toungue. The finish is both sweet and bitter. It does have a pretty west coast amount of hoppiness to it. The sweet malt is not enough to offset the hops. The mouthfeel is substantial. The flavor could be a little more complex and developed, but this is a damn fine beer, Brecks best, and a very good IIPA.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Poured a nice golden hue, slightly opaque with a slight white head that sticks around until finished. Smells of hops and citrus...tastes of grapefruit, oranges with a nice malt backbone. Nice long finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Poured a slightly hazed amber color with a small off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, cut grass, and citrus. and orange peel. Flavor starts with malt and by the middle the bitterness showed as grapefruit rind and lasted through the long finish. Medium bodied.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Medium amber-orange color with a light head. Unfocused malty aroma with some peculiar yeast notesand resin. Sloppy malt and alcohol characteristics come through first and do ther best to beat away the fruity, floral hops notes. But these qualities are drowned out so that only bitterness remains. Fairly light-bodied in the end with mouth-coating bitterness.

FlacoAlto (3737) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 2, 2005
Pours with a three finger thick, frothy pale tan head that leaves a lacing as I drink my way through this beer. The beer is brilliantly clear and shows a brilliant copper red hue when held up to the light otherwise it is an orangish amber color. The aroma is thick and sticky with hops, which hit my nose as soon as I start to pour this beer. Notes of pine are at first evident, but then I get notes of bergamot, grapefruit, tangerine, and a herbal note which underlies it all.

The taste is hoppy from the get go; the hops are prickly and biting as the beer slides across my tongue. There are lots of herbal piney notes with a finish that is full of citrus fruit notes. The beer is slightly sticky on the palate with a malty sweetness that accentuates the ample hopping. The finish has a bitterness that lingers though is not all that bracing and there is a note of tangerine peels that lingers as well. Flavors of herbal pine are abbundant in this beer as well as a full suite of citrus fruits. This beer is pretty darn nice right now, I have not had a really hoppy beer for a while and this definitely hits the spot.

Indra (2570) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 2, 2005
22oz. bottle. Relatively slight but pleasant fruity aroma, some pineapple and orange alongside mildly sweet, toasty malts. Clear medium copper color with a fine, subsiding head and attractive, delicate lacing. Flavor is full of hop character, fresh, citric, juicy and piney, the bitterness slowly building throughout and culminating at the dry finish, with the malts providing only subtle hints here and there, a skeletal framework of sorts. Smoothly effervescent and oily on the palate with a medium-full body, yet surprisingly mild in character given its alcoholic strength -- which there is not much hint of save late into the bottle. As Breckenridge goes this certainly is an above average offering. We hop seekers are IIPA-starved in these parts, generally, after all...

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Light copper orange with a sticky cream colored lasting head. Good clarity. Big resiny "C" hop aroma with some malt character to back it up. Ouch. Not the flavor I was expecting. Not nearly big enough for style. Everything is blanced well, but I say it needs to be picked up a notch. It does roll over the tounge with a good sensation. Sticky, pleasantly astringent. If this came from a brewpub, it would be very nice. From a production brewery trying a special line, I expect more.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Nice deep copper color with a big white head and nice lacing. Aroma was some grapefruit citrus with herbs and pine. The taste though, just didn’t do anything for me - this was an adequate pale ale but not much more, I really expected a doozy of an IPA, but I ended up bored.

aracauna (2997) - Georgia, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Rich deep amber. Thick creamy head fadet, but leaves a good lace. Grassy, pithy hops over a rich, sweet malt. Hot from the alcohol. Bit unbalanced.
