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.)

Botlle, Good citrus and floral aroma. Copper body with off white head. Citrus flavor along with some bitterness. Sticky texure in the body and this was cool and crisp on the palate.

12 oz bottle. An IPA - good and worth more than I payed for it, but in the end - an IPA.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2006 Upon opening of cap a earthy hoppy smell wafted out. Pours a gold-copper colour and the scent has sweet caramel and earthy hoppyness intermingled together. Head is light, delicate and lacy. Definite hops flavour (as it is a Imperial IPA) with a sweet sugaryness and a flavour of amber ale. Not as bold as I would expect from an Imperial IPA but the flavour has a lot of elegance- would be a good Double for drinking on a mellow night with a friend. Taste is appealing to the palate- not overly bitter and invites further tasting. Overall a great beer with a unique flavor but seems to be lacking in bold character- it is reminiscent more of a regular IPA than a Double...

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2008 Draught at Falling Rock, Denver. Clear orange coloured with a medium sized off white head. Fruity aroma of grass and pine needles with notes of hops and grape fruits. Fruity flavour of hops and grape fruits with notes of caramel, liquoric and pine needles. Dry hoppy finish.

An orange beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with nice caramel notes combined with grapefruit, leading to a dry hop juice end.

Ah, this is so good. This is a very well balanced IPA. The pour is a a nice orange/rust color with a nice fluffy head that leaves good lacing. The small is sweet, piney hops and bread dough. The taste follows exactly, with a great balance of malt and hops and some of that yeast dough in the aftertaste--which I like. 9.2%? You would never know it when drinking it. A great product from Breckenridge.

Very nice. Very strong too. In fact perhaps the most striking aspect of this beer is it’s absolutely hidden alcohol content. I didn’t look and drank the whole pint-six. Now it’s time for bed. ;) Smells very piney, and the hop bite is strong up front but never delivers the dry bitterness I associate with the ’over hopped’ super IPS everyone seems to want to put out. My only complaint is the beer has the usual long finish of an IPA but leaves me wanting something. It hints it is gonna develop, but it doesn’t go as far as I want it to. Still, I like this one a lot. a great SPECIAL IPA when I don’t mind getting whalloped by the alcohol. ;)

(05.26.06) One pint, 6 oz brown bottle from DiCarlo’s, Mundelein, IL. Poured clear orange with small white head. Soft carbonation. Hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied double IPA that starts with light malt sweetness and citric (grapefruit) hop flavors. Finished with light hop bitterness. Well-balanced beer with firm malt foundation to support a hoppy profile. More hop flavor than bitterness. This is one delicious drinkable ale and I enjoyed it with pizza.

Bottled. Lightly hazy, golden peacy pour with a medium cap of foamy off-white head. The nose was mellow for the style, but pleasant with rich toffee, grapefruit, juicy pears, and a hefty dose of perfumey hops. The flavor was a bit sharp and muddled... bright alcohol and almost metallic bitterness... toffee and caramel base... juicy fruits and piney bitterness surrounding. Balance felt a tad heavily-skewed to the alcohol... and the bitterness was too sharp. Still good, though... could’ve been really good.
