Equilibrium Fractal Zappa

Brewery: Equilibrium Brewery
Country: USA
ABV: 6.8%
Style: New England / Hazy IPA

Brewer Description: (from Untappd) We wanted to explore the concord grape notes that Zappa offers so we went with an exclusive Zappa whirlpool and dry hop hop bill. A hazy yellow pour opens up to aromas of pineapple, grape jelly, and nerds candy. Flavors of assorted citrus kissed with purple grape drink, dank sticky icky, fresh cut grass, and pinot grigio grape skins finish clean with an earthy pointed hop bitterness and a splash of #EQjuice.

Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 13th September 2022, poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A hazy orange colour with a one finger white head that had pretty good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Pineapple, mango, orange creamsicle, grassy, dank.
Taste: Light to moderately bitter, orange peel, mango, grape jelly, melon, dank, grass.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: My first impression wasn’t too good, but as it warmed slightly, it did improve quite a bit and had an especially enjoyable aroma.
