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.)

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2013
12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a mildly hazy copper color. The head is a 2 finger offwhite shade. Theres some respectable texturing and retention to be found in the latter. S: The hops here are very earthy and floral in their tone, and also features a minty touch reminiscent of 90 Minute. All in all, though, the hop profile here doesnt particularly strike my fancy, nor does the malt backbone. T: Its a bit maltier than I expected. Im not sure if its the age or whatnot - I just know the hop profile here isnt that powerful. At first, a touch of floral hops open things up, and before the boozy, sweet finish hits, I notice an enjoyable - but sadly vague and mild - midtaste of tropical fruits. Some floral hop qualities also return on the back end, which rubs me the wrong way combined with the mild booziness and strange umami tones. M: I think this one is too heavy and sweet in texture. Its not *sweet* per se (in terms of flavor), just lacking the necessary dryness to cleanse and refresh the palate. That, and it brings out the crap aftertaste more strongly. O: Not a great DIPA, and I dont think this one has the excuse of being an old bottle, either. Certainly nothing to drainpour, but there are too many great DIPAs out there to seek this one out again.

Purchased the first time I saw a four pack at a local HEB. Glad I did. Out of the bottle it comes a super nice hazy orange liquid putting up a thinnish white top. The nose is resin with some caramel. Tasting it I get a moderate hop kick, maltiness, surprising for an IPA and a toffee-like sweetness. The bitterness is present throughout. I detect the 9.2% abv lingering in the background. Brewer should be proud.

From tap at brewery- the pour is clear, copper in color with a full bodied head. The aroma is bright, clean, slight grass notes, citrus, and a little sweetness. The taste is hoppy, notes of vanilla, citrus, malts are strong but not the prevalent flavor. The mouthfeel is thick and smooth, almost creamy. The finish is bitter, but quickly dissipates to a slight sweetness. Overall a great DIPA.

Bottle - looks lovely, orange copper pour with a sticky ivory head. Great nose, pine, much resin, sweet citrus, like orange frosting. Medium bodied, plenty of citrus with a tropical edge, a nice bitter breadiness rounds it out. Great beer and very drinkable for the abv.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Smyrna, GA. The appearance is a nice orange color with a large white head. The aroma is citrus and the taste is a great hop/alcohol DIPA mix.

Really hoppy. Has a nice aroma but is a little intense. Still real tasty and worth trying.

It pours a golden orange that is actually more on the orange side. There is an off white moderate head that does produce a fair amount of lacing. It has aromas of Grapefruit and apricot with bread and caramel in the background. There is also a hint of spruce. IT is very sweet up front and bitters while in the mouth. There are grapefruit and apricot flavors with bread and caramel. It has a moderate feel with a moderately bitter finish that is fairly long lasting. Overall it is moderately bitter with strong fruit flavors and moderately malts on the low side.

Enjoyed on tap at Ale House in Grand Junction, CO. I didn't take tasting notes, but remember this being a pretty strong high ABV imperial IPA with lots of citrus. Overall pretty good, would have again.
