471 IPA

During an hour-long pit stop in the City Tavern in Dallas, TX, my second India Pale Ale was 471 IPA, out of Littleton, Colorado's Breckenridge Brewery. It packed a mighty 9.2% alcohol--a double IPA for sure. My pint showed up filled with clear copper suds under an ample off-white head. 471 had a nose that was both bitter and juicy, with some pleasant berry notes. The flavour proved to be a touch too sweet for my ideal, but it had a really interesting profile that ran from sweet and fruity to bitter and boozy.

471 was a pretty enjoyable little ale. Too saccharine and strong to be suitable for session drinking, but a single pint really hit the spot.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
