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: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

A - Pours a golden amber, almost clear, with a one finger white head, As the head dissipates there is a nice amount of lacing on the glass.

S - The first thing that hits the nose is citrus. It's delightful smell that only hints at the taste to come. There are also hints of pine in the background.

T - The taste is well balanced with only a hint of the alcohol. The variety of citrus notes are at the forefront with only a slight bitterness. There is a nice amount of malt also.

M - A medium bodied beer with a light malt feel.

An excellent IPA. This would be a regular with me if I was able to get it on a regular basis.
