Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

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.

Bought a 4 pack, drank from a snifter. Interesting for an IPA, but very good. Good bourbon undertone, but it overpowers the hops a little too much. Definitely worth a try.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle to snifter.

A: Burnt orange with a small white head. Unfiltered.
S: Orange, grapefruit, cinnamon, slight pine.
T: Sweet oramge and grapefruit. Fruity aromas waft into the nose. Slightly medicinal.
M: Medium. Sweet and bitter finish.
O: A little on the sweet side. Sticks around a little too much.

Orange/medium amber in color. Chill haze, and a pure white head which leaves 360-degree rings of lace in its wake. The aroma is a delicious combo of lemon tart, honey, and juicey orange slices. Medium-high resinous hop bitterness makes this an unmistakeable IPA, although there also exists a caramel and honey sweetness which is unusually strong for the style. The medium-bodied, creamy mouthfeel highlights the malt more than the hops, but the bitterness still manages to make it it to the finish. A sweeter, lighter DIPA, this beer, while tasty, is a touch too tame.

I get a strong bourbon smell and somewhat of a bourbon taste that, in my opinion kills some of the hoppy flavor I was hoping to get. This is a good to very good beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Smyrna, GA. The appearance is a nice orange color with a large white head. The aroma is citrus and the taste is a great hop/alcohol DIPA mix.
