471 Small Batch Series Beer
471 IPA. Aggressive Hoppiness

Hoppy? Brother, 471 IPA redefines hoppy. 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.

1. Breckenridge 471 IPA Poured from a 12oz bottle into a dinner glass, Beer is a super-murky deep golden color with a distinct orange tint. Head is very rich, and though it recedes fairly quickly, it leaves a film on the surface of the beer which is silky in nature. SMELL, rich, sweet frothy malt character up front, accented by pine-and citrus flavored hops. Almost a vanilla-type smell as well. No detectable esters, very well hidden for a 9.2%. Awesome.

TASTE: Beer is thick on the tongue as the carbonation expands, there is a beautiful cornucopia of flavor that barrages the tongue. Grassy citrus hop flavor, a touch of vanilla, toffee-like malt. Aftertaste is surprisingly mellow, and the beer rinses cleanly.

2. Breckenridge 471 IPA Poured into an imperial pint glass, color was a slightly orange darker amber. Had a 2 finger off white head that faded to nextto nothing in about 5 minutes. The little later left some great lacing’s on the side of the glass. Aroma was slightly fruity that intermingled with a bitter hops. Also picked up slightly traces of a spicy vanilla. Taste was remarkably balanced. Started off hoppy with just a taste of lactose, become more malty, and then finishing up with hops again.  Felt nice and solid in the mouth. Slightly creamy with a tad of tingle on the tongue at the end. Overall a great beer.
