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.

Served on-tap at Ale Arsenal in a DFH IPA glass.

Two fingers of thick head with lots of effervescence. Clear gold.

Smells like a pine forest. More lush and fresh than astringent. Aromatic and ensorcelling.

Smoother and less hoppy than anticipated. Round and balanced. Malty with a deceptively strong undercurrent of earthy spicy hops. Gentle finish.

Smooth and unremarkable.

A good beer, but perhaps shy of a great one. I've not had the greatest luck with spline kegs; will look for a bottle.

A - clear golden-amber with 2" of thick white head. Leaves 1/4inch and sticky lacing.

S - Floral, resiny pine.

T - floral, dry, earthy, pine, some astringent grapefruit peel

M - very smooth, somewhat oily,, sticky, chewy, medium bodied

O - A very well executed yet simple IPA. Light body with a hint of malt and a nice but not overwhelming floral/pine hop presence. Easy to drink but nothing to write home about.
