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.)

one of my all-time favorite brews. not super-super-hoppy (like, say, stone’s ruination), but it is hoppy enough and has a great aroma and taste. highly recommended!

Alcohol with a nice lingering bitterness. It goes to your head very quickly. First double IPA I?ve had. Somewhat malty.

Always gotta have this when in Denver during GABF, awesome peach citrus nose, great over top hop fresh flavor without working too much into it. Such a big pleasant hoppy brew A+++++

Sampler @ Brewpub. Now we’re talking! Well blended aromas of pith and peachy sweetness with a hint of juniper. A little to the set side on the flavor, but the best one of the bunch.

Luvystypotables (675) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Aroma of malt and hops. Amber colour with a short lasting white head. Taste of hops and malt bread. Viscous feel with a very bitter finish.

vandc01 (79) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Poured from a 12oz bottle - with no date on it. Aroma - very orangey aroma - not my style, let’s see what the taste brings Appearance - Hazy orange color. Taste - hmmm, not my forte. Perhaps it is the age of the bottle, or maybe. Palate - lingering taste, might be the best attribute of the beer. Overall - Possibly too old for me, but overall too orangey for me. M

DocJitsu (969) - Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Pours an amber-golden color with a short, quickly dissipating off-white head. Good balance of malty and hop characters. Big body. Smooth with a fudge of some carbination burn. Drinks like a DIPA. Malty, but not too much. A very good balance between the malt and hop flavor profiles. Pretty good.

nakedwhendrunk (2182) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a deep hazy orange color with a one finger soft foamy white head that dissipated within about a minute. The lacing was spotty and messy. The smell was dried grapefruit peel with a light bitter lemon and it acted upon a light oily earthy hoppiness. The taste was somewhat sweet and somewhat bitter at different times throughout the beer. It never seemed combined and thorough. The palate consisted of a delicate bitter hop base (yes, I say delicate, whoah, delicate for an DIPA, yikes, where’s the harshness I long desire for). However, I must admit the oiliness came in on my tongue to make it somewhat slick. Overall, interesting DIPA, would I have this again? Honestly, with all of the DIPA’s on the market, I don’t think I’d seek this one out but probably wouldn’t turn it down if this was all that was offered.

Etched glass bottle. Backlog. Pours amber off white head. Nose/taste of caramel malt, citrus, grapefruit and dryish resin. Medium body.
