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.)

ThisWangsChung (747) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2013
12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a mildly hazy copper color. The head is a 2 finger offwhite shade. Thereís 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 doesnít particularly strike my fancy, nor does the malt backbone. T: Itís a bit maltier than I expected. Iím not sure if itís the age or whatnot - I just know the hop profile here isnít 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. Itís 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 donít 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.

Not overly impressed with this beer. Aroma is grain not hop. Taste is more sweet thickness with a slight hop bite that fades into grain. Overall not over whelmed or impressed with this beer.

Really boozy. Like almost dominates the aroma here. Some subtle tropical fruit but lots of alcohol. Really kind of overpowers this one for me. Taste is matly and almost syrupy sweet. Not much else going on. I was excited about this one but it was just kind of a boozy mess for me.

joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Cloudy orange amber color with a frothy off white head. Aroma of resin hops and brown sugar and some vanilla. Flavor of citrus hops, sweet malts, slight resin and alcohol. Not sure this one is good enough to justify the 9.2% abv. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear orange-amber with a frothy beige head, lasting and lacing. Aromas of toasted malt, caramel, citrus, and pine. Flavor is caramel and toasted malt upfront citrus, and pine on the back end, light dark fruit underneath. Full bodied, oily with some warmth on the end. Lingering citrusy fruit notes.

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