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.)

TPaliga (212) - Munster, Indiana, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Pours amber with thin fizzy head. Aroma is all piney resiny citrus hops with some sweet fruit. Sticky and big on the mouth with lots of bitter hops finish.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Poured a slightly hazy orange/gold with a short durable head and lacing. Intense aroma like holding a handful of fresh hops to your nose. I was expecting a hoppy blast in the flavor and itís there alright but this is more balanced than I thought it would be-drinkability high for the style but the strong bitterness in the finish slowed me down some. Good stuff.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 Bottle. Very good beer, especially for those that like their beer hoppy. Light orange in color. Very happy to get my hands on this small batch brew. I agree with a couple of reviewers in that the aroma fades after the first few sniffs and drinks. The great taste hits the roof of the mouth for sure, as the best IPA’s normally do. I’ll make sure to grab more than a sixer should I see this again.

There is a low hoppish aroma and a pour that is amber with an off white head. The flavor is hoppish with a strong piney and citrusy flavor. The finish is moderate with a slight hoppish bite.

blankboy (6226) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear orange with an average size somewhat-lasting white head. Lovely floral and funky hop aroma with pine and spruce -- smells great. Flavour -- whoa! Thatís HOPPY. Itís somewhat one-dimensional but it tastes great nonetheless. Medium bodied. It could have a little more going on but for what it is, a damn hoppy beer, I really liked it.

GregClow (2910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, tupalev & jerc - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Golden-orange with a moderate white head. Aroma - lotsa hops, sprucey and a bit vegetal. Flavour is very hoppy - I mean very, VERY hoppy - lots of grapefruit and spruce, not much else. I dig hops, so I liked it for what it was, but it could use some more malt and body to balance things out.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Clear appearance, cast in a honey-glazed amber-y hue, with prodigioius puffy, lacey foam above. Nice lookiní. Aroma is soft, piney, citric, pleasant, but muted. Candyish tones overtake bitterness. Appealing. Brisk blash of bitter on the palate, then caramel flavor rolls in, toffee, like a brief battle between hops and malt, this candyish sweetness muffling the bitterness. Interesting. Fruit bobs up again, but instantly enfolded by sweet caramel. An interesting combo, one I donít encounter in an IPA very often...but one that doesnít quite hold my in sway with itís charms for very long. Full mouthfeel, lot going on in the texture, medium to full bodied, tasty, complex finish, hangs long on the palate...but, alas, the flavor doesnít quite cut it all the way, for me. Still good, just not what I look for in an IPA. An accomplished ale, nonetheless. ( P.S: I had no idea the alcohol was so high when I first sampled it...kudos for keeping it hidden, but I have a feeling itíll kick in as I finish the bomber!)

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Very fruity, floral aroma with a light hop background. Unique taste is floral and hoppy w/ a sweet brown sugar note.

Rastacouere (6136) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2006
Clear amber pour, the head appears as a lasting foamy white cover. Rather alcoholic nose is more or less pleasant since itís very sweet, strongly malty. Oily orange flesh and juicy fruitiness constitute what the hops have to give. Piney palate with more oily hops to display around. Medium bitterness fights around the big, thick maltiness which procures a full body that could use a bit more carbonation. Might have more to say with less alcohol in the way.

Gorbalev (2943) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2006
Bottle shared with GregClow, Jerc, Hogtown Harry, and Blankboy, Harryís bottle. Medium yellow, small bubbly head. Interesting lemon spicy hop aroma - pine sol?? Taste is very hoppy, with a decent sweet light malt base. Tasted a little bottly, but that fades. Lots of lingering sharp pine-like hops. Enjoyable and simple, if not one-dimensional. Alcohol is well hidden.
