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.

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

Bright sun yellow with a slight orange hue about it, an inviting IPA for sure.

Smells of citrus, melon, and hop deliciousness.

Huge wave of cantaloupe at first sip, with other tropical notes namely grapefruit, passionfruit, and guava.

Mouthfeel is hoppy and tropical, very refreshing and perfect balance.

Overall I enjoy Alpine Nelson more, but still a fantastic IPA and I only have one other Alpine brew notched into my belt to compare it too so take that with a grain of salt.
