Notes/Commercial Description:
A West Coast IPA that features Amarillo and Simcoe hops "in harmony," giving a light, floral aroma. Duet is nicely bitter with the perfect amount of malt concealed behind the hoppy goodness. Immensely drinkable, amazingly light on its feet.

Bomber poured into an oversized wine glass. Golden body with a light brass core. Lacing is sticky and has a long life.

Plenty of hops. The nose is stronger than the final result. Orange, earthy and a bit on the raw side. Finishes on the sweet end for my taste but overall its excellent.

Notes: After taking down 3 alpine brews in the past couple weeks I've found another reliable brewery to purchase from. Everything I've sampled has been at the very least solid and at the best stunning. Don't hesitate to purchase.

just an incredible beer. Perfection and balance define the palate. Has the right amount of hops, right amount of malt, and it has a silky smooth drink down the palate. There's a bit on the front palate and the concentration of flavor is so appealing and long Not sure what else you can ask from a west coast IPA.
