471 IPA

Delighted to find this on tap at the Taco Mac in Austell.
11.2oz pour which is a huge bonus because it avoids the conversation about NOT pouring the beer into a frozen glass!
Very light, orange pour with excellent sticky, white lace. Unfortunately served waaaay too cold so you have to wait for this one to wam up a little. It’s a shame theat they keep getting the temperature of these pours wrong at TM because although I don’t really mind waiting a bit, after that time lapse, the head and its appearance suffer some. Ho hum.
Tasting notes are pretty identical to my earlier tasing of the bottled version. The alcohol is still amazingly well hidden, and there is a fresh hop sweetness about this beer that makes it one of the easier American DIPA’s to quaff – alaraingly so at an ABV approaching 10%.
Everytime I drink this I love it, I would like to think it will become a draft staple in this parts but I doubt it will last. A little to sophisticated for around here with its tiny little glass!
