471 Small Batch IPA471 Small Batch IPA
Notes: 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.

Nothing stood out for me. Average ipa with acholoic notes. Was too bitter.

Strong initial flowery flavor that dissolves into a mid-tone maltiness that's uncharacteristic for a double IPA. The finish is neutral. A good double IPA overall but confusing in some of its flavors.

Poured into snifter from bottle. Very nice amber color. Floral hoppy aroma with hints of spice and carmel. Tastes of hops and carmel, very smooth feel. overall an excellent ipa, one of my favorites

This beer reminds me of of the hard to get double IPA's Pliny the Elder, a good example.. this has a sweeter flavor, a bit of caramel to it. I would have to do the blind taste test. I don't taste any grapefruit citrus, by the second bottle of this stuff it is evident Breckenridge Brewery has got a very rich tasting beer on their hands. In sum, this is a great IPA, if not it is certainly in great beer territory. Very damn good.

A: [3.50] The bottle lists the ABV (9.2%). There is also a date code for (08/30/2016). So this one is a bit beyond peak freshness. The beer is a dark amber color. It has TONS of floaties in it. It forms a pretty minimal white head.

S: [3.50] Peach, alcohol heat (a little like rubbing alcohol), pine, pineapple.

T: [3.75] I get the peach from the nose. I am not getting the alcohol heat (at least not early). Also picking up the pineapple. Also hints of lemon rind. After a while getting some sweetness from the malts,

M: [3.75] Above medium body. Slight bitter at the end but not too dramatic.

O: [3.50] This is a decent beer. I think you could develop this flavor at 6% ABV - but still it does the job. The flavor has some depth and balance. The nose had a bit of a raw alcohol scent - but it didn't impact the flavor at all. Not one I'd seek out, just due to the high ABV relative to the flavor output.

I thought this Double IPA was overall decent.

Look: semi-clear copper with a thin bubbly white head.

Aroma: grapefruit, caramel, pine

Taste: Good malt backbone, caramel, pine, grapefruit, but a tad medicinal, I was hoping for more hops, and the alcohol was noticeable.

Feel: Medium body. The alcohol is noticeable. I think it was a good beer but not top notch.
