Availability: Rotating

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.

a beautiful golden/copper pour with 3 fingers of bright white fluffy head giving off ridiculous amounts of lacing while slowly dissipating.. lots of visible carbonation. a really pretty looking beer. the aroma of hops is blowing my mind right now. from a foot or so away i get a huge hit of simcoe, the closer to the nose it gets, i get a nice piney/grapefruity scent.. lots of sweetness/caramel. the flavor is simcoe up front, totally. the second i put the glass down after the first sip, i start tasting sweet malt and start getting floral hop notes and light refreshing grapefruit like citrus. a very nice refreshing ipa and quite honestly very mellow on bitterness for the aromatic hop bomb it is! a lovely beer all around, really happy i got to taste some alpine brews finally. the mouthfeel on this is MADE for summer. highly carbonated, medium body.. refreshing, but not lacking on flavor one bit. this is a damn great ipa.
