4.35/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: This beers pours a beautiful golden color with a slight bit of haze. The head is bright white that quickly dissipates.
Smell: I love the smell just wish it was a little stronger. I smell alot of tangerine,pineapple and a little bit of orange rind. It has plenty of great tropical smells to it that says--CITRUS!
Taste: Where it is a tad light in smell it makes up for in taste. This stuff tastes like pure bliss -- tropical -tropical. It has a great tangerine taste to it along with orange and a little mango for good measure. Once it warms up a little more it i get a little biscuit flavor to it. It is slightly bitter but really smooth on the back on the back of the tongue and pretty dry on the finish. Love it!
Mouthfeel: It has a perfect amount of carbonation and delivers those tropical flavors perfectly.
Drinkability: I could drink this all day --every day. I have been drinking hopslam alot in the past week and i actually can say i prefer this more than this years hopslam. I have had hopslam from the beginning 6 years ago and this years although good i think i like this session worthy beer much better and look forward to the case of bottles i bought. Can't wait to try the Pure Hoppiness I got along with the Duet.

22oz bottle received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Justin!
Poured into a imperial pint glass, formed a 1/4" off-white head over the clear golden brew. Head slowly fizzles away, with lasting lace. Aroma is all about the citrus.
Taste is moderate sweetness to start, which is quickly overpowered by citrus hoppiness in the middle, and cruises through the close with pine and ample but not overpowering bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is easy. Excellent brew, and shows how we can have plenty of hops character and flavor, yet keep the bitterness under control. Bitter is nice, but bitter for bitter's sake gets old. None of that here.
