Availability: Rotating

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.

Having this right after my Nelson. Again ehammond1 is the fucking man and anytime you see him give him a highfive for me please.

A- Pours a medium orange/yellow with a 3/4 inch head that leaves a good amount of lacing.

S- Really nice floral notes here, slight pine/citrus hoppiness and some pale malts. Really solid

T- Wow this really blew me away. The floral notes perfectly translate to the taste and the other minor players in the nose (citrus/pine) come through much stronger and it all blends together PERFECTLY

M- Just like Nelson it's super smooth, love what Alpine does with their Mouthfeels

O- Holy crap Eric you have spoiled me terribly. Ever IPA Alpine makes is to die for. Might move out there just for the whalesbro

just an incredible beer. Perfection and balance define the palate. Has the right amount of hops, right amount of malt, and it has a silky smooth drink down the palate. There's a bit on the front palate and the concentration of flavor is so appealing and long Not sure what else you can ask from a west coast IPA.
