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.

Absolutely tremendous IPA. Full bitterness without the extreme hops and malt of a DIPA. Good amarillo orange flavours, and grapefruit. A bomber was a satisfying fill. Generous white head, above average mouthfeel. Good carbonation, balance.Thanks Augustgarage.

Light herbs and floral hops on the nose I sense a bit of chives, tangerines, caramel, grapefruit, watermelon and bitter lemon rinds. The front is floral with an herbaceous hops. The middle palate is caramel before it ends with a grapefruit bitterness and resiny pine. The feel is almost sessionable as it holds almost no astringency.
