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.)

Was over at my buddies when I had this and the only glassware he had was a small weizen glass. Color is an orange copper. Pours a thick tan head that is very complex. Leaves some really nice lacing. Smell is of carmel malts with earthy/pine hops. Taste is obviously hoppy. Floral pine notes and hints of carmel. I really couldn’t even tell that this was 9.2% abv. Mouthfeel is awesome. It starts out very smooth and then gets just slightly bitter. Finally, when it goes down, it is very creamy with a slight hint of bitterness. Very well carbonated. Overall, this is one tasty double. At 9.2%, this thing is very easy to drink. This is a well balanced IPA and it is not extremely bitter, which was a nice surprise. I highly recommend.

Sampled from a bottle at the Soho bar in San Antonio, Texas. Copper colour with a whitish head. Extremely hoppy! Lime, mandarin, grapefruit and resin all present. Some sweet maltiness with hints of caramel also, along with an earthiness and some spices. Long finish. A stupendous double IPA.

rustbucket0873 (348) - Krikville, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Pours cloudy orange to amber, with white head. The aroma is pine, grapefruit, sweet, caramel, malty, bread. The flavor is caramel flowed by sweet bitterness with grapefruit, malt and more caramel. Hides the alcohol but you can tell its there. The body is very thick. Overall good wiah it hid the alcohol more or it was reduced slightly

Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours gold with a white head. Nicely funky veg aroma. Dank and musty. Medium body, medium carbonation. Sweet, not overly so, with caramel pine, orange, some candy... Good.

Malty flavor with a lingering after taste. Was hoping for something a little smoother with less alcohol coming through. Wouldn't really call it hoppy.

Not what I was expecting from a double. Taste is super sweet with some heavy flavors lingering. Boozy through and through and lingers like a oak aged whiskey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big caramel malt and some herbal tea hop smell too. Taste is caramel malt, crackers, pine tar, and herbal tea.
