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.)

This one of the best IPAs I’ve tasted! Not a lot of head to it but what’s there lingers on and on, and is white and foamy. The color is a cloudy golden amber, almost opaque but not quite. The aroma is sweet, a little fruity, grainy, and very pleasing. It tastes sweet, a bit sticky at first, but the hops take over quickly and it becomes citrusy and bitter. It finishes that way too, and the bitterness is like grapefruit peel on the tongue. I like this one very much and I hope the "small" batch is big enough for me to find it again!

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2008 Re-rated RRBF’08. Beer is clear, medium caramel-brown. Head is small, white, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing but lasting.<P>The aroma is malty with light/moderate notes of caramel, toasted bread crust; Hoppy with light notes of dried apricot, grapefruit oil. moderate note of resin/pine; Trace miscellaneous note of chewable vitamin C tabs.<P>The flavor is heavily bitter, light/moderately sweet, lightly acidic with a very long, abrasive, heavily bitter, lightly/moderately sweet, lightly astringent finish. Unbalanced and abusive on the palate.<P>The body is medium, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively. Find this quite a different beer than my last tasting.<P>

Orig. rating: 7/4/7/4/14.<P>Bottle to a snifter. Beer pours a murky, medium orange-amber color with a white, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing head that leaves scant lacing on the glass.<P>The aroma is hoppy, but not so hoppy that all of the other aromas are obliterated: Malty with moderate notes of cookie, caramel and toasted grain; Heavily hoppy with vivid notes of grapefruit, dried apricot, resin/pine, herbs and chamomile flowers; Moderate-to-heavy yeast notes of damp basement and horse blanket; Miscellaneous aromas include a moderate-to-heavy note of black tea and trace notes of peaches and honey.<P>The flavor is heavily sweet and moderately bitter with a long, moderately sweet, moderate-building-to-heavily bitter, lightly acidic finish the bears a nice alcoholic warmth down to the tummy.<P>The body is light-to-medium, the texture is watery and the carbonation is average.

bottle. LIght clear orange coloring with healthy egg white head. hops, skunked, earthy aroma. Hops, grassy, pear, carbonarted taste with an interesting bite. The bite is similar to drinking a Reisling? Very unique. Agree that its better than most Breck beers but nothing too special.

Draft (Imperial Pint) at Breck brewery on Blake St. Poured amber / orange with a little head that left lacing. This was just alright for me. A little too sweet for what they’re calling a double IPA. Medium body, and better than most of the Breck beers. I enjoyed it, but would not seek it out.

9.2% you have to be kidding. Very hoppy but not overelly bitter. Can detect more grapefruit than alcohol and the grapefruit is not overpowering.

frankenkitty (2014) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2006
Pours a bright, coppery/orange with a longstanding, fluffy, off-white head that falls in peaks and laces with authority. Intense pine aroma to start, revealing some artificial florals (deodorant) amidst acrid urine notes. Flavor finds the hops losing their intensity within a watery body. Malt sweetness creeps in, but alcohol flattens it out (it’s a good alcohol kick, tho’). Bitter finish is pine resin to the point of being chemical with a honey sweetness to take off most of the edge. Definitely not a "top of the line" DIPA like DFH90, 3FDreadnaught or Avery Maharaja.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - MAR 10, 2006
light golden color with a small head, but with nice lacing. Sweet malt smell, and hoppy but not flowery or citrusy like some IIPAs, but more earthy. Taste sweet malt, leather, dirt(but not in a bad way...okay call it earthy!) with a bitter dry finish. A drinkable IIPA but certainly not in the high echelon. ..."more hoppiness than you’ve ever had at one time"? well, maybe not, but I’ll forgive the commercial description for now.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - MAR 8, 2006
The bottle poured a slightly hazy amber-orange colored beverage with a large, creamy off-white head that was mostly lasting and left excellent lacing on the glass. The aroma was complex with a light malt presence represented by notes of straw; the moderate hop presence was evidenced by notes of grass and grapefruit; and the yeast, by notes of leather. The body was medium to full with lively carbonation and a creamy texture. The finish was long with a slight astringency and light alcohol warmth. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and the finish was lightly bitter. This one was a real pleasure to drink.

(bottle) Hazy orange-gold with only a small white head. Some lace. Rich hops aroma (pine). Citrus hops predominates the flavor, but some malt, vanilla in there as well.
