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.

3.78/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours an orangeish, light hazy gold. Nice tan head, great lacing

S - Very airy which is off-putting, citrusy light hops slightly dry and resinous

T - As it smells but much more citrusy hops, very airy, resinous, mildly sweet from caramel malts

M - Light bodied and refreshing for sure

O - Airy, not as intense flavoring as I would have liked but definitely an easy drinker.

I had a duet earlier for the first time and found that very airy as well - perhaps hold/lots of temperature changes/or light damage. Will re-review when I have the opportunity to try another of each
