Notes/Commercial Description:
This brew uses several varieties and multiple hop additions to the kettle as well as a large "hop back" to give the bitterness and aroma a start. Plenty of dry hops finish it off and give a big hop bouquet.

Bottle thanks to ScottO!

A: A bright golden color with a huge, creamy white head.
S: Huge citrus aroma at first. This differs from Duet because it has more of a pine resin aroma and a scent of caramel. A bit floral as well.
T: Big pine resin at first, followed by caramel and citrus. Grapefruit, tangerine, peach and some light floral flavors. This is a lot more bitter than Duet.
M: Medium bodied with above average carbonation.
O: Fantastic IPA, but I'll give the edge to Duet. Extremely drinkable pair of IPAs.
