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.

Misc.: N/A

Poured a caramel amber color with two fingers (when I got it) of white head. A perfect amount of lacing on the side all the way down and good retention on the top all the way down.

Smelled tons of delicious bitter hops right up front. Got grapefruit, lemon, tangerine and orange peel.

Tasted tons of hops like the smell. Citrus grapefruit was leading the way, but also got tastes of pine, resin, floral, tropical and mango.

Light-to-medium body. Oily-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.

Just a fantastic IPA, probably the best one I’ve ever had. Absolutely loved it.
