Equilibrium dHop 5

Brewery: Equilibrium Brewery
Country: USA
ABV: 8.5%
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Other Notes: Hop . Science . DIPA

Brewer Description: (from website) dHop5 is a 8.0% DIPA that supersizes one of our favorite Equilibrium IPAs: Fractal Citra/Galaxy. We scaled Fractal’s grain bill, water treatment, fermentation, and super sized the hop bill of citra and galaxy. dHop5 pours a milky yellow releasing aromas of passion fruit, peach, lime, and pineapple all integrated with a sorbet twist. The taste is a bright creamy tropical flavor that is dangerously drinkable and balanced with our signature #EQjuice finish.

Intro: A 1 pint can, with no canned on or best before date, but should be released on 20th October 2020. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy orange yellow colour with a two finger white head that had good retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, passion fruit, pineapple, peach, mango, grapefruit, lime, citrus rind and pith.
Taste: Juicy, melon, pineapple, papaya, peach, lightly bitter, grapefruit, lime, orange, with notes of grass.
Mouthfeel: Slightly creamy, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: A nice and easy drinking NEDIPA, although the melon flavours were perhaps a little strong for me.
