Equilibrium Super Fractal Julia Set

Brewery: Equilibrium Brewery
Country: USA
ABV: 10.5%
Style: New England / Hazy Triple IPA

Brewer Description: (from untappd) The Julia Set is named after the French mathematician Gaston Julia. This complex set exists as a by-product of the Mandelbrot set and was devised while studying complex dynamics during the early 20th century. This set of complex numbers can cause drastic changes in the sequence of iterated functions.

Tying this into the newest beer of our series, we scaled up from Fractal using a super simple grain bill of 2-Row and our specific fractal fermentation profile before intensely hoping it with a Mosaic and El Dorado whirlpool and a dry hop of Citra, Mosaic, Strata and El Dorado.

Super Fractal Julia Set pours a vivid hazy yellow with an aroma of tropical citrus, ripe red berries, and candied lemon peel. Big flavors of navel orange, mango, stone fruit, currants, and berry come alive in a dangerously drinkable and smooth #EQjuice finish. The quest to have you seeing spirals and weird shapes continues.

Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 21st April 2022, poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A hazy orange colour with a big three finger beige head that had good retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Tropical and citrus notes, pineapple, guava, orange juice, lime zest.
Taste: Juicy, tropical and citrus fruits, mango, pineapple, guava, orange, lemon zest, with notes of melon. Nice bitterness on the finish with ever so slight booziness.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium to full bodied with soft to moderate carbonation.
Overall: A very easy to drink NE Triple IPA that’s very juicy and has a nice bitterness to it, and doesn’t feel like 10.5% ABV at all.
