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.

Clear, glowing gold with a firm stand of white foam that lays down rings of lace.

Mmmm...just outstanding from aroma to finish with floral citrus tones, aggressive pine, and background notes of wild flowers, herbs, freshly cut grass. The hops are bright and juicy, clean and crisp, bitter but not harsh. The malt is minimal and only serves as a canvas for the Humulus Lupulus. Nice and dry on the back end letting the hops shine even more.

One of the best IPAs I've ever had. The hops are aggressive, bold, and omnipresent, but polite in the sense that they never become harsh or biting. Simply fantastic.
