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.

A BIG thank you to Rish in Californa for this beast of a beer.

Appearance: Pours a great looking hazy golden color, definitely unfiltered with a nice creamy head of foam.

Smell: The smell is very strong citrus, very forward and up front. I love it

Taste: So much flavor, so many levels in this beer, it is awesome and quite refreshing also. It has an awesome sweet, bitter, and piney taste. Nice bitterness but is not overpowering just perfect

Mouthfeel: Couldn't really ask for anything more, nice and creamy with good carbonation.

Overall just a great beer, one of my favorite IPAs I'm upset I can't get this here in Chicago. I was so impressed with Duet it's wonderful

from a bomber pours a hazy peach sunset color with a staying beige head and nice clinging lacing on the glass..smell is topical with mango and pineapple its mixed with citrus and pine hops ....tasty malts are in the background..taste is superb Amarillo and simcoe hops together make for a tropical hop profile that is just delicious it also has pine and grapefruit resins..sweet caramel malts round out the hops..mouthfeel is perfect for the style it fills the taste buds with loads of hops but never bitter just smooth drinkable and delicious..this is west coast this is a delicious ipa..one of my favorites
