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.

I have drunk a lot of IPA's and even had Pliny the Elder which is considered a top of the line IPA. This IPA was among the best I've ever had; I can honestly say it may be the best. I was traveling in CA and stopped at Stearn's Liquor mart and picked up a bottle of this. This is one of the smoothest IPA's I've ever had, yet bitter and a outstanding IPA... if you ever get a chance to get a hold of this IPA I'd advise you to buy it. Only issue with it is that I live in Kentucky and this stuff is made in CA... I need to find a way to get a hold of this stuff here locally.
