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.

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.

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.
