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.)

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.

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 (908) - 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.

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.

Bottle. Dry, sweet and hoppy. Pours dark amber with a nice head. Nose is citrus and hops. Taste has some nice malt sweetness with great hop bitterness.

Poured from the bottle of a 4-pack into my antique "Old Style" 7 ounce bar glass my late father probably stole from a local gin mill. This one was all over the place, one drink tasted sweet, the next bitter, and a bit gritty at the finish. Being a double IPA I was expecting it to be more bold, but instead was quite drinkable, and more pleasing to the tongue than most of the strong beers I’ve had. Usually I would say I wished it came in a six pack but I think for my own protection I’m glad they did a 4 on this one. If you like being really buzzed without all the pesky liquid bloating that 72oz. of beer might cause, then run out and get yourself a 4 of the 471!

12 oz. bottle. Pour is a vibrant orangish gold, hazy with a finger of off-white head, which dissipates to a a tight lacy ring. Aroma is huge citrus with ripe orange, pineapple and grapefruit. Nice earthy hops in give nose as well. Flavor is sweet with ripe tropical fruits and a spicy, sneaky bitterness which comes after a few seconds. This is definitely a floral DIPA but has a nice earthy bitterness to balance out the sweet citrus. Nice dryness in between sips, just a trace if bitterness and sweetness lingers to make you want the next sip. Pretty good stuff.

Light amber with long lasting frothy white head. Rich resinous aroma. Taste- rich malt and ample piney, resinous hops. Caramel, dark fruit malt notes. A decent 2IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
