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.

22oz from a trade, thanks augustgarage! Always there to oblige my hop cravings...

A- Gold, a snowpeaked head that isn't going anywhere. Beer color is actually pretty much a dull gold, but the head is ivory white.

S- Smelled the hops from a mile away. Floral, citrus, no bitter or pine hops, mild mild grapefruit. Smells like Pliny, actually. Ah, west coast IPAs. Mild pale malt is there, adding to the awesome bouquet. Wow.

T- Follows the nose. Bitter, though, more bitter than I would have thought. Still, the orange peel, flowers (lilac?!) and other assorted hop awesomeness comes in right behind it. The malt is nowhere to be found, but that's fine with me... I'm here for the hops!

M- Crisp, clean, with a flavor that explodes in your mouth. Perhaps it seems like I'm gushing over this beer, but I am really digging it.

D- High. If I could, I'd drink a growler of it. Awesome beer, A great flavor profile and a smooth drinkability makes this a no-brainer for anyone looking for some hops. Very enjoyable.

EDIT- I have gotten a bunch of bottles of this since my first review. I am in love with this beer. One of the best from the West, no doubt about it.

Very good IPA that falls just short of being amazing. Great representation of the style.
