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.

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.
