4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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!

Pours a hazy rust orange. Has a strong malt, caramel, and citrus hop aroma. A heavy bossy with a strong malt, caramel, fruit and citrus hop taste. A lingering heavy malt and bitter hop aftertaste.

Great big hoppy aroma, citrus and floral nature. Flavor of light malts and mostly hops. Hop flavor was fresh and bitter.

Breckenridge Small Batch 471 is overrated in my opinion. Cloudy copper pour with a head that disappears a little too quickly. Aroma is light malt but not much else. Taste is piney, spicy with some sweetness. Not very balanced -- the over spicy hop notes ruin it for me. If you like a hop bomb, then maybe Small Batch 471 is for you.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear dark amber color, 1/2" foamy beige head cover, broken curtain of lace. Taste is strong sweet caramel malt that is interrupted by full-bodied citrus hops on the swallow, but the malt stays on course, sharing the finish with the hops. The finish also reveals alcohol, and, unexpectedly, mild sweet tea. A big-bodied brew, thoroughly enjoyable. Recommended.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Copper orange pour wht a small ring of white bubbles around the glass. Aroma is sticky malt sweetness and just a touch of bitterness. The body is full and syrupy with a lot of hop bitterness to the finish. Now I notice the alcohol. Potent, but unfortunately not very enjoyable.
