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.

Pours a deep golden color with decent head and lace. Nose is grapefruity grapefruit with grapefruit on top of a touch of tropical fruits and a touch of malty goodness. Taste is harmony for sure. Great showcase of two lovely hops. Bitter grapefruit is the lead role, and it reminds me how amazing it is that these flavors come from hops and barley. Doesn't seem out of balance. Medium light body that finishes a little oily. Looks like a lot of other reviewers find it thin, but I think it is quite nice. Very very nice ipa from alpine.
