Brewery: Equilibrium Brewery
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Other Notes: Hoppy · Bitter · DIPA
Brewer Description: Vulgar Display of Flower is a tribute to an aggressive yet balanced assault on the senses. It blends East-meets-West coast DIPA with our own Equilibrium twist. It is dry, bitter, piny, resinous, yet remains smooth, juicy, and drinkable. This concoction displays the hop flower’s assertive yet delicious nature with an #EQjuice finish.

Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 6th January 2022, poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A hazy deep orange colour, with a just over one finger white head that dissipates fairly quickly, but left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Juicy, orange juice, grapefruit rind, resinous, piney, with some tropical fruity apricot notes.
Taste: Lightly bitter, citrus peel and rind, orange, grapefruit, grass, resinous, piney, and a tropical starfruit, papaya finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: It’s not one of my favourites from Equilibrium, but it’s definitely good and worth a try.
