Brewery: Equilibrium Brewery
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Brewer Description: (from Untappd) Using our Fractal fermentation process, we combined a simple 2-row base malt bill and a whirlpool of Mosaic and Idaho 7 before a dry hop of HBC586 (“mango hop”), Mosaic, and Strata. Pouring a bright mango yellow, aromas of mango smoothie, cannabis, and hop fields lead you to flavors of clementine marmalade, passionfruit, pineapple and mango smoothie, red currants, and weed all wrapped up in a chewy mouthfeel. This tropical medley has a saturated flavor with a balanced dank and earthy #EQJuice finish.
