Breckenridge Brewery in Denver, Colorado. This is a Double IPA that is not a mainline beer; however it got enough attention to be bottled. So the bottle tells the story. Why 471 you ask? I think it's not coincidental that they are located on 471 Kalamath Street. How about you?
Orange citrus and pine aroma, with sweet malt in the background. Very nice. The flavors start out quite sweet with plenty of orange and pineapple. Those flavors stick around only for a short moment at which point a flood of pine tree and black pepper spiciness rushes in. The beer gets progressively more bitter until the end. The 9.2% alcohol starts to show its teeth right at the end with a little burn and drying power. Dry and quite bitter finish. Repeat a bunch of times until all 12 ounces are gone and you have a big smiley on your face. Not particularly balanced as sweet and bitter both have their own days in the sun, but I think both aspects were delicious and played off each other nicely. Constructive criticism is that the alcohol could have been masked a little more, but despite that, I really liked this beer. Solid! Check it out!
