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.

another alpine bottle shared by ritzkiss. thanks eric!

22oz bottle. sampled jan 1/2010.

pours pale orange with a touch of haze, but mostly clear. the big fluffy white head drops fairly fast and leaves lots of lace behind.

aroma is good. grapefruit. bit of pine. orange and tangerine. white bread. bit of cracker. light alcohol.

taste is nice. powdery hops. grapefruit and orange. bit of pine. white bread and cracker. alcohol. medium bitterness level.

mouthfeel is good. just over medium carbonation level. medium body.

drinkability is good. well balanced. solid malt and hop presence. i can't say i was blown away by it, but it's definitely good stuff!
