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.

Had this on tap at O'Brien's in San Diego in August 2009.

A: Golden copper with a nice white head.

S: Lots and lots of tropical and citrus hops going on with a little bit of pine.

T: Wow, much like the nose with plenty of hops in this thing. While I don't think that this is quite as good as O'Brien's IPA from Alpine, this simply solidifies the fact that Alpine is right up with Town Hall, Bell's, and Russian River as the best damn place to get an IPA from.

M: Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

D: Superb. I absolutely loved this one. Had at the same time as Nelson Rye and this one was definitely better. (Also had Exponential Hoppiness at O'Brien's that evening, and this one was definitely better in my book.)
