4.39/5 rDev -0.7%
Bottle poured into an IPA glass
A - Big golden straw color with a solid two finger head that lingers. Lots of carbonation.
S - Dankness, grapefruit, a little citrusy, not a heck of a lot of malt in the background. Very hop forward.
T - Hops! Grapefruit forward with some dankness. A touch of citrusy hops with just the right amount of bitterness. Crushable.
P - Prickly with a nice bitterness without being overdone. Active carbonation on the tongue. Dry finish.
O - Much better than Nelson imo. The taste and mouth on it are pretty spot on for a DIPA. It's quite dry without much malt presence.

Bomber to a snifter, no dates
Pours a clear vibrant golden orange with a finger of foam. High carbonation coming form everywhere, good lacing and really good retention on the foam. Looks pretty good
Smell is of earthy citrus hops, strong notes of grapefruit backed up with some pine and mandarin. A bitter sweet malt with notes of caramel and bread finish in the back with a little bit of alcohol
Taste is pretty close with the aroma, strong earthy mandarin and grapefruit with some floral and pine notes. Caramel malt that is a bit less sweet than average, finishes with a touch of alcohol
Feel is pretty bitter moderate body, leaves a very dry stinging finish. By far my favorite feel from an ipa
Overall a great beer I'll need to trade for again someday. Super jealous of San Diego

A BIG thank you to Rish in Californa for this beast of a beer.
Appearance: Pours a great looking hazy golden color, definitely unfiltered with a nice creamy head of foam.
Smell: The smell is very strong citrus, very forward and up front. I love it
Taste: So much flavor, so many levels in this beer, it is awesome and quite refreshing also. It has an awesome sweet, bitter, and piney taste. Nice bitterness but is not overpowering just perfect
Mouthfeel: Couldn't really ask for anything more, nice and creamy with good carbonation.
Overall just a great beer, one of my favorite IPAs I'm upset I can't get this here in Chicago. I was so impressed with Duet it's wonderful
