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.

Pours a golden honey color. Light haze with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves spotty lacing on the glass with each sip. Just a beautiful looking beer. Aroma is citrus forward. Super citrus- grapefruit, tangerine, some tropical fruitiness, mild pine and grain. Taste follows the nose with a wonderful citrus burst and a piney, mildly bitter finish. Malt bill is very minimal and really highlights the hops although it detracts from the mouthfeel a bit. A little lighter bodied than I would prefer for an IPA, which makes it feel like you could drink it all day, and sometimes I do. Overall this is a world class IPA and one of my favorites.

Very good IPA that falls just short of being amazing. Great representation of the style.
