Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a large off-white head and a hazed golden body. Aroma is grassy, caramel, and tropical fruits (I love amarillo hops). Taste is grassy, bitter, with tropical fruit notes. Creamy carbonation. Very nice!

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. Hazy light orange in color with a fluffy white head. Aroma of light fruity hops, with a good deal of malt coming through, some honey - definitely not a great start. Taste: High carbonation and grainy malts get astringent and somewhat harsh on the palate. Hop character is somewhat muddled with the malt character. Harsh on the palate - hop bittering is moderate. A definite dissapointment compared to some of the other single hops I’ve had from Mikkeller.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
20100301 11.2oz bottle from State Line. Medium amber with massive beige head of large, aggressive bubbles that are mostly lasting fading eventually to a creamier, rockier froth. Aromas are very floral, somewhat herbal (basil), cigarette-ashy, and tinged with some acetaldehyde notes. Body is light, heavily carbonated, astringent, but comes around with nice pithy bittering in the end. Light fruity yeast flavors round out some basically light cracker malts and grapefruit and floral hop flavors. Tough to get past the green apple, punchy eff, and grainy astringency, making this beer a bit too tiresome to finish.

Bottle brought to Paul’s new year tasting. Golden orange pour with white head. Pine, citrus, pineapple, grassy notes. Had a strong aftertaste. Not my favorite single hop.

Bottle from City Beer. What can I say? I am not in love with Amarillo hops - I think they are the bad kind of cheesy and that stops them from refreshing me. So this rating doesn’t reflect how much I enjoyed this bottle, but how well made I think it is (and probably it’s a bit low). It was at least 2 weeks old when I had it which is not optimal, but if you like Alpine Duet you will love this.
