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.

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.

Pours a burnt orange with a thin head that dissipates quickly.

Smells of orange, hop resin, bread, and booze.

Taste is similar to smell. The hop resin and bitterness linger on the back of the tongue which help balance the sweetness of the malt. Also, some citrus, grass, and a good amount of alcohol.

Medium body and carbonation.

Overall a delicious IPA. Definitely a great way to end the night.
