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.

This is the second time I've had this beer and this first time seemed more fresh than this. It reminds of Pliny or Sculpin in the fact that if its not perfectly fresh, its a different beer altogether. This is substantially bitter in a good way. Floral and hoppy.

I agree with a previous reviewer who said this tasted like honey and nectar. I believe that is what a little age has done to transform this. I can't really remember the exact differences with this compared to the fresher version, but the former had more citrus and less bitterness. Still enjoyable, just make sure yours is fresh.
