Breckenridge Brewery
Colorado, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Pours a hazy copper to orange body with golden hues beneath the velvety white head, which dissolves quickly but maintains a consistent, sticky lacing around the glass.

Generous pine and citrus hops float from the glass including grapefruit or pineapple followed by a nice balance of sweet malt.

The flavor is similar with a more lasting malt profile and a tasty, tongue coating hop resin that includes the citrus and pine notes previously mentioned.

Medium to fuller in body with medium carbonation and a lingering resiny finish.

This is a nice balanced beer and the 9.2% abv is buried in here. The hop bite is nice and offset by the sweet malt towards the back of the tongue. Well done.

My wife picked this one up as a surprise, and what a treat this is. Looks and pours like a Two Hearted, if you know what I mean; all coppery, and dark and cloudy and yummy. Smells of sweet, somewhat roasted malt with floral and fruit hops, and not much pine on the nose. Taste is very good and balance, rising sweet malt at first, and then hops and bitterness that runs and runs...great sustain here. Mouthfeel is right there, and alcohol is contained with the profile, and carbonation is fuzzy and fussy and lovely and everything. I really like this brew.
