Let me begin by saying I am not a fan of the regular line-up of Breckenridge beers. They seem simple, safe and pretty unremarkable. 471 changes my mind however. A nice, rich honey color sitting lazily in the glass. Good lacing; it says I was here and left my mark proudly. The aroma is remarkably subduded for a heavy-hitting DIPA. Smells like hops, but not pungent hops. It is sort of a distant, echoed growl that warns you of the dangers should you enter this dragon's lair. Mmmm. I like the wyrm. Rich, full sweeter malt flavors with rigid hop backing. I would call it 'malt-centric' without caring if that is a real word or not. Reminds me of Stoudts DIPA in a good way. Drinkability is delightful for a nearly 10% abv. Drinking this without knowing yourself could result in awkward apologizes in the morning. That said, nice job Breckenridge.
