I saw that Alpine was offering this fine IPA and had to go get it. Me and 3 empty growlers in tow made the short trek this weekend and it is always worth it when I come home with a beer this good.
A: Golden/amber/orange pour that sits below a nice off-white single finger head layer. This fades quickly to a patchy remnant of what it was only 30 second ago.
S: Sweet pine hops, with familiar citrus notes. Noticeable grapefruit and juicy orange peel aromas.
T: The pine notes and citrus translate to flavor. While distinguishable, the flavors are not overwhelming and provide one of a kind, assertive IPA profile.
M: Flowing and smooth. Flavor is apparent, but not overbearing. This beer holds a lot of flavor with how smooth and flowing it is.
D: Duet is an amazing west coast IPA. I'm happy to have access to it when it is brewed. A testament to its drinkability is how I am sitting here finishing the whole growler without hesitation.

I’m glad to say that this, my first taste of an Alpine beer, lived up to the hype.
It pours a golden-tan with exceptional clarity. I get a great citrus aroma and some light piney notes. There’s a lively citrus flavor and a light bittering on it. I enjoyed this repeatedly when I found it on tap. An all around well done IPA that hits all the right notes.

A: Pours more of a gold color but when resting in the glass it is gold with a slight orange hue, leaves a frothy head that takes awhile to vanish, leaves some nice lacing on the glass as well
S: A perfect balance of pine, tropical fruits, grapefruit, slightly sweet malts, and a hint of bitterness, fantastic smell to this brew.
T: Up front you get a lovely greeting of pine sand grapefruit mixed, then it transitions to those lovely tropical fruits, and finishes with a perfectly balanced mix along with the perfect amount of bitterness. This beer is so well balanced and flavorful, it is absolutely outstanding!
M: Superb mouthfeel, so light crisp and refreshing, leaves your mouth a little dry which leaves you begging for more! So drinkable as well!
O: This beer is phenomenal! Get your hands on it!
