Brewed by:
Breckenridge Brewery
Colorado, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.20%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Poured into a pint glass. Reviewed alongside Firestone Walker Double Jack.

A: Cloudy amber with giant particles and a two-finger, creamy, off-white head that lasted a long time and left a nice film. Great lacing.

S: Citrus, caramel malt. Nice.

T: Light to moderate sweetness and strong hop bitterness. Sweet caramel malt and citrus hops.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very smooth.

O: This beer looks incredible with huge particles and great lacing. It's really smooth too. I liked the look and feel of this beer better than the Firestone Walker Double Jack, but this beer didn't smell or taste quite as good at that one. Overall, I'd say it's a tie between the two.

Pours a hazy, golden-orange body wtih a very small white head that reduces to a white ring. I would have preferred a bigger, puffier head for this IPA.

S- Citrus, resinous, sweet and hoppy. Inviting.

T- Starts with some tart grapefruit notes, ends with a fruity, winey, hoppy aftertaste. Leaves some bitterness on the tongue which is faint and enjoyable.

M- Medium-high carbonation, little to no sign of booze, which is impressive considering the high ABV.

Overall, I enjoyed this brew. I nicely crafted IPA with some good complexity.
