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.

Light herbs and floral hops on the nose I sense a bit of chives, tangerines, caramel, grapefruit, watermelon and bitter lemon rinds. The front is floral with an herbaceous hops. The middle palate is caramel before it ends with a grapefruit bitterness and resiny pine. The feel is almost sessionable as it holds almost no astringency.

Poured into a nonic pint glass, the beer produces a creamy, foamy white head. A golden body with blonde hues radiates below with an occasional gas bubble. This beer has good clarity. 4.25

Delicious fruity notes, berry and pineapple, hit the nose first. Then some resin and pined up hops, which precede smooth caramel malt. 4.3

sThere's quite a blend of hop flavors going on here and it's tasty as all hell. Fruity notes of guava and berries, some pine, and a big dose of floral and earthy hops. 4.3

This beer is smooth as all hell, bitter through out, with a rush of carbonation at mid-palate. There's a slight spiciness and a light quality to this beer that are spectacular. 4.5

Alright, this beer is damn good. It's indisputable. Smooth like a pale ale with DIPA flavor and body. 4.35
