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.)

12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a mildly hazy copper color. The head is a 2 finger offwhite shade. There’s some respectable texturing and retention to be found in the latter. S: The hops here are very earthy and floral in their tone, and also features a minty touch reminiscent of 90 Minute. All in all, though, the hop profile here doesn’t particularly strike my fancy, nor does the malt backbone. T: It’s a bit maltier than I expected. I’m not sure if it’s the age or whatnot - I just know the hop profile here isn’t that powerful. At first, a touch of floral hops open things up, and before the boozy, sweet finish hits, I notice an enjoyable - but sadly vague and mild - midtaste of tropical fruits. Some floral hop qualities also return on the back end, which rubs me the wrong way combined with the mild booziness and strange umami tones. M: I think this one is too heavy and sweet in texture. It’s not *sweet* per se (in terms of flavor), just lacking the necessary dryness to cleanse and refresh the palate. That, and it brings out the crap aftertaste more strongly. O: Not a great DIPA, and I don’t think this one has the excuse of being an old bottle, either. Certainly nothing to drainpour, but there are too many great DIPAs out there to seek this one out again.

Bottle from Chevy Chase Beer and Wine. Nice amber body with medium head. Nose is hoppy, yeasty, pine. Taste is lots of hops, pine, cactus. Nice caramel notes in there. Enjoyable.

I love this beer, the taste is pleasurable, not hoppy. This is a great barbecue beer, refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Delicious IPA right here! Drank from 12oz bottle, has a nice citrusy, slightly hoppy aroma. Very fragrant smell ;) Really great flavor as well! Instantly reminded me of Stone IPA. Very well balanced hoppy flavor, slight citrus taste, with a slightly malty finish. After tasting it I would have never guessed that this beer is 9.2% Would definitely buy this stuff again!!

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 07528B15. It has an amber colored and heady pour. Some haze. A bit of roasted malts on the nose but quickly overtaken by the floral and cantaloupe fruitiness. Medium to heavy body. Quick sweetness and then more abundant bitterness that lingers to finish. For 9.2% this drinks easy.

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.

Solid DIPA. Sweet malt mouthfeel with hop spice, pine, and citrus notes. Nice bitterness and alcohol burn. Pretty big and chewy.
