Breckenridge Brewery - 471 IPA

Going to a tweetup at a brewery on Thursday, so I'm thinking, "Shit, I'd better update the blog!"

Fortunately, I just picked up a six pack. Part of Breckenridge's 471 Series, this double IPA  is a small batch, limited edition brew. It's availbale year-round, but only in limited quantities.

9.2% ABV

Brassy, amber color. Very slight haze. Modest carbonation visible. Delicate, egg white head. Sticky lacing.

It has a light, airy aroma. Mildly spicy hops and  sweet, bready malt. 

Taste & Feel 
A nice blend of sweet and hoppy. Spicy hops hit first, accompanied by a carbonated burst. It has a medium body and clean mouthfeel. The middle has a sweet caramel flavor with a hint of yeasty bread, followed by a crisp, citrusy hop finish.

Pretty tasty. I'm happy I picked up six.
