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.
Serving type: growler
