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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Mmmmm this is one tasty, clean IPA. Good combination of floral and citrus goodness with a hint of dank Hoppyness.

Overall this a great beer that is hop forward with a bite if bitterness but leaves the palate pretty dry so you're ready for another sip.

I would say if you like simcoe or Amarillo hops you'll like this. Or if you just like hoppy clean IPAs with just a bite if bitterness you'll dig this.
