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.)

kramer (6293) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2006
22 oz bottle, via Secret Santa PhillyBeer2112. Pours a clear dark gold under a fine bubbled beige head two fingers plus in height. Minimal visible carbonation. Aroma is well balanced between sweet toasted and caramel malts and a floral hoppiness. Flavor is moderately bitter with some hoppiness up front, and all bitterness on the finish. The malt is in the background, but certainly makes itself known. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with fine fizzy carbonation. Slightly sticky on the finish. Overall not too bad, but I never would have guessed that this was a Double IPA. Though that also means that the alcohol was very well hidded for such a strong beer. A decent IPA but not a good IIPA.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-brown body with a small bubbly white head. The aroma has bread, sweet alcohol, and oranges that are yeasty and bountiful. Big, chewy, yeasty-flavoured body with bread malt and lots of orange-pulpy grapefruit hops. Adequate sweet malt providing balance.

nimbleprop (7763) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Poured a murky orange color with a semi-thick white head. Fruity, hoppy aroma. Initial flavor is citrus, sweet and a little syrupy. The finish is great, very clean and not at all astringent like other imperial IPAs. Not as hoppy as other small batch IPAs but the flavor is just as smooth.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 29, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2006 In the bomber bottle from Roof Bros. Amber copper in color with a serious density slightly off-white head. Aroma of a cherry and grapefruit little old lady fruit salad brought to a Sunday church dinner on the grounds. Thick malt sweetness that controls the hops dying to escape. Caramel and phenol in an unholy union. A hard beer to dispell, but remarkably smooth for an Impish IPA. UPDATE 11/2006: On tap at the Crescent Moon. Deep gold in color with a thin, but tough as hell head. Great lacing. Aroma of freshly cut yard grass and bushels of hops. An alfalfa sunshine smell like being in a haybale on a summer day. This is a smooth beer for such a high ABV. Nice amount of malt, but not over the top. Sweet, but neutralizingly sweet for the intense hop flavor.

IrishBoy (4141) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Bottle a present from Enniskillen, my son; Very hoppy aroma mixed with caramel malt; hazy copper with a few bubbles on top; flavor is nice hops and caramel in the background; with a sweet finsh that slowly trails into a mild bitterness.

Radek Kliber (7239) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 28, 2006
Bottle. Hazy, muddy amber with bright white top. Strong hoppy aroma, plenty of high alphas, medium malt base. Fruity character . Initially this beer feels quiet balanced malts and hops cooperate well. In the midlle hops do take over. Overall clean solid IPA.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Light copper color with medium sized off white head. Aroma has a fair amount of herbal hops, sharp caramel. Flavor is malty, bit of hops, somewhat thin, with a midly bitter finish. Just fair.

tmad (93) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Clear golden amber with an off white head. Citrus, grapefruit aroma, with a slight detection of pine. Taste of sweet grapefruit, a pleasant bitterness. This is truly a great refreshing alcoholic beverage with a well hidden high alcohol content, one of my favoroites.

tennisjoel (1401) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Bottle...Somewhat faint aroma for the style. Grapefruit hops and cookie malt are distinct in this brew. The flavor is an improvement. Not top notch for the style, but I still like it. Fairly smooth, more of a toned down imperial IPA. Very good and unexpected.

jtw (1161) - farmington, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2006
22 oz bottle that pours a crystal-clear amber with a light white head. a watery aroma with mostly resinous american-style hops aroma. but it seems like they managed to extract some hops bitterness without much of the associated hops flavor - a very soft and subdued bitterness and a sweet finish that feels dry from a medium bitter hops finish. ever-so-alcoholic and just not quite enough interplay between the malt and hops although both are present.
