Notes taken on 05/03/2014

A: Light caramel amber color with near perfect clarity. Half finger layer of smooth ivory cream comes to rest on top. Nice ample stay power with a few laced streamers and dots that decorate the glass.

S: Smells of gooseberry and kiwi fruit with a citrus lime twist. Crazy tropical fruits going on with a bit of melon and hop spice as well. Has some underlying sugary pale malts there. Not particularly pungent to me but nicely exotic.

T: Tropical kiwi fruit with gooseberry, pervasive green melon, lemon-lime, and some peppery spice. It moves into more earthiness and a distinct tea-leaf like quality. Sugary cracker malt bits help bind it all together. Lots of subtleties that start to fade out and forms into more traditional pine and grapefruit flavors. Has a nice high level of punchy hop bitterness however I find it well balanced in that the flavors are not really in your face. Nothing ever assaults the palate. Alcohol is really well masked too. This is really interesting to try. Sort of like Nelson at times but unique with more musky melon and herbal flavors.

M: Light bodied brew with a nice consistent frothy texture from the carbonation. Higher level of hop bitterness with a nice clean and dry finish. Not incredibly resinous but has a nice residue to it.

D: Stoked to have stumbled upon this one and give it a try. I can officially say I am fan of the Equinox hops. Has a solid mix of 75% tropical fruit, 25% earthy herbal spice. Not sure it flies as a standalone hop but I am positive we will be seeing lots more of this variety. Bittersweet feeling knowing that I have missed out on all the other Showers series.
