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.)

22oz bomber. Hazy with a pink grapefruit juice hue. Large spotted white head. Strong citrus nose. Bready, wheaty with an underlining raspberry note. Sweet and sugary. Caramel and toffee. Bitter and citrusy. Lively and full. Grapefruit and woody. Finish is piney and caramel, followed by a tingling long bitter dry, sticky finish. The alcohol is really starting to shine through. As is the bitterness, and yet a small trace of caramel lingers throughout even into the long finish. The malts were initially dominant, but as it warmed and opened, the hops and the alcohol burn really started to permeate. And finally overrun the flavor and body. This is really quite tasty!

Bottled. Poured golden orange with a creamy head. Fruity notes to the nose and taste--orange, caramel, and a slightly floral character. A nice hop finish, not overly done. A well balanced brew.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2006
Any first impressions?
-A compact head thrones atop the orangey bronze clarity.
-Scattered oranges scent the resinous hop aroma.
-Well-endowed caramel maltiness hugs the complex wooden hop flavor.
-A sensuous body transports all flavors further into serious enjoyment.

What if you dig deeper?
-An expectedly important hop bitterness traces its way down the gullet, but amazingly doesn’t shout too loud.
-In the end, impressive balance is reached.
-Earthy hops and toasted maltiness work very well together.
-A Double IPA because of the alcohol and increased everything, but one which could be drunk for hours without reaching saturation.

Bottle; no date.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2006
Bottle. Hazy orange body with a big fluffy white head - good dense lacing. Resinous orange citrus and cinnamon/nutmeg aroma. Perky apple-themed caramel malt start with a nice layering of spicy, orange citrus hops on top; long resinous, bitter finish with dougy notes. A well-balanced and tasty IIPA.

pivo (2556) - GERMANY - APR 11, 2006
Sweetish dough nose, lovely amber color, tall spongy beige head. Maple syrup sweetness, powerful hop bitter across the entire mough. Full body. Good balance. Tasty, big beer.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 10, 2006
Bomber. Pours slightly hazy honey color with thin, creamy white head. The aroma is clean and hoppy with a great deal of sweet bread as well. The flavor has a smooth, even bitterness with lots of pine sap and some earth. Beneath the hops is some toast, raw grain, and a light hint of caramel. Pretty well balanced, mostly because, as many others have noted, it is not as aggressively hoppy as it claims.

MacDaddyOJake (274) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 10, 2006
I never got massive or redefining hops from this one. It was hoppy, but nothing close to some other hop-monsters that I have tasted. Not bad, but it was overly sweet and fruity I thought. It tasted reather like apple juice. Can’t say that I enjoyed it enough to get another one.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2006
This is an in you face ass kicking aroma coming from this. Tons of resiny grapefruity hops. Massive hops and a sheer delight to inhale. Very malty and a well balance job with the hops. Very nice

CMUBEERMAN (421) - - APR 8, 2006
pours a clear hazy orange...with little head. Aroma is crap...nothing to it. Taste is semi sweet floral hops...but also artificial sweetener. Flavor is floral hops...not much else. They really missed the ball on this one. Mouthfeel is watery and syrupy.

jazz88 (2550) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 2, 2006
Bottle. A golden color with a light foamy head. A grassy hop aroma with a semi-sweet malt grass earth flavor with a touch of cardboard. Dry at the finish, slightly warming, with a bitter aftertaste.
