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.)

blankboy (7395) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear orange with an average size somewhat-lasting white head. Lovely floral and funky hop aroma with pine and spruce -- smells great. Flavour -- whoa! Thats HOPPY. Its somewhat one-dimensional but it tastes great nonetheless. Medium bodied. It could have a little more going on but for what it is, a damn hoppy beer, I really liked it.

GregClow (3290) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, tupalev & jerc - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Golden-orange with a moderate white head. Aroma - lotsa hops, sprucey and a bit vegetal. Flavour is very hoppy - I mean very, VERY hoppy - lots of grapefruit and spruce, not much else. I dig hops, so I liked it for what it was, but it could use some more malt and body to balance things out.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Clear appearance, cast in a honey-glazed amber-y hue, with prodigioius puffy, lacey foam above. Nice lookin. Aroma is soft, piney, citric, pleasant, but muted. Candyish tones overtake bitterness. Appealing. Brisk blash of bitter on the palate, then caramel flavor rolls in, toffee, like a brief battle between hops and malt, this candyish sweetness muffling the bitterness. Interesting. Fruit bobs up again, but instantly enfolded by sweet caramel. An interesting combo, one I dont encounter in an IPA very often...but one that doesnt quite hold my in sway with its charms for very long. Full mouthfeel, lot going on in the texture, medium to full bodied, tasty, complex finish, hangs long on the palate...but, alas, the flavor doesnt quite cut it all the way, for me. Still good, just not what I look for in an IPA. An accomplished ale, nonetheless. ( P.S: I had no idea the alcohol was so high when I first sampled it...kudos for keeping it hidden, but I have a feeling itll kick in as I finish the bomber!)

Enniskillen (2046) - Salinas, California, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Very fruity, floral aroma with a light hop background. Unique taste is floral and hoppy w/ a sweet brown sugar note.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2006
Clear amber pour, the head appears as a lasting foamy white cover. Rather alcoholic nose is more or less pleasant since its very sweet, strongly malty. Oily orange flesh and juicy fruitiness constitute what the hops have to give. Piney palate with more oily hops to display around. Medium bitterness fights around the big, thick maltiness which procures a full body that could use a bit more carbonation. Might have more to say with less alcohol in the way.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2006
Bottle shared with GregClow, Jerc, Hogtown Harry, and Blankboy, Harrys bottle. Medium yellow, small bubbly head. Interesting lemon spicy hop aroma - pine sol?? Taste is very hoppy, with a decent sweet light malt base. Tasted a little bottly, but that fades. Lots of lingering sharp pine-like hops. Enjoyable and simple, if not one-dimensional. Alcohol is well hidden.

jercraigs (10060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2006
Golden amber, moderate fluffy white head. (3+) Nice hops, bit of resin, light grapefruity. Aroma seems to fade a bit after the initial pour. Pleasant hoppy character throughout, lightly leafy grapefruit, very muted resin. Lacks complexity but is fairly quaffable. Average palate.

roacheater (43) - Alabama, USA - JUN 23, 2006
oily, hoppy, smooth on the front end, complex and bitter on the back end. easily the best brew ive had from this company. theres so much going on here that i can hardly believe this is a breckenridge product. if i see more of their "small batch" line around ill try it for sure.

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2006
Bottle (650ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and tupalev - my bottle. Clear light amber with a large foamy-rocky off-white head. High sharp sweet sprucey hop aroma, with floral and funky hops too, light malt. Taste is very hoppy, a slight hint of metal, mildly fruity malt pretty much surrenders to to grapefruit pith bitterness in the long finish - decent I2PA body, quite astringent, pretty balanced for an I2PA considering its really pretty simple - it has a surpringly sweet finish, but very nice.

noelcb (271) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2006
Pours dark amber with generous white heads which fades with sone lacing. Aromas of fruit -- apples, citrus and peach -- up front overtaken quickly by astringent grapefruit hops, a bit of biscuitty malt and alcohol. Taste is huge grapefruit hops, very bitter, over sweet malt, herbs and spice. Very carbonated but refreshing. Full bodied. Bitter dry finish.
