Day #181 – Breckenridge 471 Small Batch IPA

July 1, 2011

Just got back from a vacation and had a lovely hoppy beer waiting for me.

Breckenridge 471 Small Batch IPA


Breckenridge started making small batches of different styles of beer several years ago, and this is their big IPA version. It is so big in fact that it is classified as an Imperial IPA. The ABV is at 9.2% and I am glad I’m splitting this bottle with a few people!

This beer pours a clear golden orange color with a foamy white head. Looks quite nice.

The aroma is quite hoppy. Wet drippy hops with resin, syrup and some woody notes. Smells quite hoppy.

Flavor is very orange, like big orange peels. The hops provide a gentle bitterness with a huge citrus flavor. Man this is nice! I am down with this beer.
