Brewery: Equilibrium Brewery x The Eighth State Brewing Company
Style: New England / Hazy Triple IPA
Brewer Description: Super Fractal Phoenix Set uses a simple grain bill of 2row and our specific fractal fermentation profile. For Phoenix Set we used our hand selected Citra and Idaho 7 in the whirlpool and a dry hop of hand selected Citra and Galaxy along with Sabro and Strata at an even higher hopping rate than Batch 1. Super Fractal Phoenix Set pours an opaque yellow tangerine and has a big citrus nose. The flavors are a unique blend of tropical fruits, big peach, citrus, “our melon thing”, passionfruit, coconut and an underlying dankness. This beer is extremely aromatic, crushable and smooth with an BIG #EQjuice profile that might just leave you seeing beautiful shapes and spirals.

Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 20th January 2022, poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A hazy murky slightly dark orange colour, with a one finger white head that had good retention, and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrus pithy, candied orange, mandarin, melon, with light mango notes.
Taste: Juicy, citrus, zesty, pithy, tangy, lightly bitter, orange juice, melon, mango.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, smooth, full bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: Very easy to drink with wonderful aroma and flavours, and the alcohol is well hidden that it does not seem like 10.5% ABV at all. Also love that it’s not too sweet and has good balance.
