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.)

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.

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.

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. Iím 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 IPAís Iíve had the pleasure to sample. This ale is amazingly easy to drink for having such a high alcohol content. Delicious!

Pours straw colored with hoppy aroma and off-white head with great retention and good lacing. Spicy hop taste. A little musty. Maybe too old? Would like to compare with a fresher version.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2008 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Hazy, orange ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The hoppy, earthy nose is of pine, caramel, leather and black cherries. Moderately bitter flavor... grapefruit and pine needles with a blast of caramel. The alcohol is evident and warming, but not overbearing. Full-bodied and oily with medium carbonation. Finishes bitter-sweet and grassy. World class brew! Thanks to growler for sharing his bottle with me!

This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of foamy mostly lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind a carbonated slightly hazy caramel brown colored body and a good lacing. The aroma contained nice caramel hop notes. The mouth feel was tingly and hoppy initially with a caramel hop finish. The flavor was strong in the finish with a large caramel hop note.

2005 bomber. . Citusry aroma with orange notes predominating. Definitely hop-loaded. . . .. Copper pour, big airy lt tan head - good retention. . . . ....Malty start. Fruity, hoppy middle with bitter finish. Tangy. . . .Medium body, but coats the mouth almost too much. . . . .A tasty IPA, Lots of interest in the hop department. Quite malty, a bit sweet with a firm mouth-coat.
