Alpine’s original West Coast-style single IPA is made with Simcoe and Amarillo hops to strike a harmonious hop balance. Duet pours a hazy straw color and is topped with bright white beer foam. It offers a blast of resinous aromatics with notes of evergreen pine, orange zest, and hints of cedar. Big hoppy flavors mingle with geranial notes, while hints of citrus fruit and an overall lingering piney quality lend a touch of complexity to an otherwise simple and delicious IPA.

Okay, I confess that I'm not 100% sure what dank, resinous, piney represent, I just know a good, hop-forward, balanced-bitterness West Coast IPA when I drink one. I'm an Alpine Beer fan and Duet is soli and recommended.
Strong hoppy dankness on the nose. Pours a very pretty golden copper color. Taste leans very heavily on pine flavors with some citrus undertones. Simple, but a West coast IPA that has been done very well
