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.

Tried this at the bottle share that sprung up at the Swamp Head Bottle Drop. Pours light yellowish gold with a fluffy white head on top. Aroma of huge pineapple, grapefruit, other citrus notes, lemon peel, sweet honey from the malts. Awesome. The flavor is even better. Huge pineapple sweetness up front followed by bitter pine and grapefruit, some grass, and big lingering citrus notes throughout the palate. Super light bodied, easy going, and medium plus carbonation. I wish I could have this every day.
