Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: SteveO1231 on 12-31-2005

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.

thanks to AndrewK for the Cali goodies!
a-golden bronze, pretty clear, white pillowy head. dense leaving nice lacing
s-bitter orange, grapefruit, light pine
t-spicy! the grapefruit and pine are back with a bit of barnyard funk. strange. lemony too. pretty balanced overall.
m-a gentle tingle, medium body. still, can't get past that funk. weird
d-good not great. i prefer nelson for sure but this is pretty good. that little funky taste was the turning point for me. it distracted from the other good notes, maybe i got a goofy bottle.

Appearance: Iridescent orange, much less head than I expected, same goes for the lacing.

Smell: Malt, citrus, grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, mango. Perhaps I got an older bottle, but the hops are a bit more subdued than I expected.

Taste: Very clean, similar to the aroma, but a bit lacking, lots of pine and pine resin

Mouthfeel: Smooth but a bit thin.

Drinkability: Similar to two hearted, etc.

Definitely a notch below pure hoppiness in my humble opinion. Needs a "bottled on" date.
