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.

On tap into pint glass.

A- Light orange cloudiness, a good 1 inch of frothy, white head. Decent carbonation and lacing.

S- Fruit and floral in a big way. Wheat and honey combine with a touch of pine, but they all take a huge backseat to the citrus smells.

T- Holds true to the nose, deliciously balanced fruits and grain, no bitterness or bite. Notes of grapefruit, mango, orange peel, all followed by a small grass and malt presence. Very light and smooth.

M- Good amount of carbonation. Very smooth tasting with a loftiness that makes it dangerously easy to consume. Light bodied for an IPA in a really good way.

O- Alpine has yet to let me down. This is another one of the best IPAs out there. I can't say enough good things about this company. Duet has juicy and refreshing character that appeals to the hop lover.

Long on the malt, balanced on the hop. A good palate cleanser. Not a staple.
