4.34/5 rDev -1.8%
Bomber to a snifter, no dates
Pours a clear vibrant golden orange with a finger of foam. High carbonation coming form everywhere, good lacing and really good retention on the foam. Looks pretty good
Smell is of earthy citrus hops, strong notes of grapefruit backed up with some pine and mandarin. A bitter sweet malt with notes of caramel and bread finish in the back with a little bit of alcohol
Taste is pretty close with the aroma, strong earthy mandarin and grapefruit with some floral and pine notes. Caramel malt that is a bit less sweet than average, finishes with a touch of alcohol
Feel is pretty bitter moderate body, leaves a very dry stinging finish. By far my favorite feel from an ipa
Overall a great beer I'll need to trade for again someday. Super jealous of San Diego

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

Poured 22oz bottle in New Belgium globe
A-Golden copper and clear. Big off-white head good retention and lacing.
S-Earthiness, pine and caramel upfront. Vague grapefruit and citrus. Was expecting an explosion of aroma, but not quite.
T-Caramel malt upfront. Sturdy bitterness that follows throughout, some piney notes, light citrus and sweetness that fades into a dry finish.
M-Medium bodied, well carbonated. Nice minor sweetness upfront but drys up at the end, love my IPA’s dry.
O-Overall nicely refreshing. Was looking for a more assertive hop flavor and aroma, but all in all an easy to drink and refreshing beer.

Thanks to Orthodoxkardia for this one.
22oz bottle pours a bright golden amber color with a 1/2 inch of head. Lots of lacing. Hoppy aroma with a mix of floral and citrus hops. The taste is sweet floral bitterness with some light citrus notes. Fair amount of toasty malts. More flowery hops at the finish with some citrus peel. Some grassy notes as well. Medium bodied. Overall, this is a really good IPA.
