Somewhat hazy, golden orange in color. Dank. Dry. Resinous. Pine, grassy and grapefruit zest & pith. Big bitterness. It's ok. Guess I'm not a huge fan of Equinox hops on their own.

this one was alright, no where near as good as the Vic Secret variant though. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange, foamy head that dissipates into a ring around the glass. very subtle aroma, but definitely nothing but citrusy tropical hops. taste is actually very different from smell. get some nice grapefruit up front, but immediately a bready malt flavor comes through. the flavors fade quickly and you are left with almost no after taste. feel was very good, especially for the taste. not a bad brew, maybe I just don't like equinox on its own.

Pours a pale straw in color with a finger of fluffy white head. Aroma is muted but I get some tropical and citrus notes with a bit of pale malt in the background. Taste is interesting, it starts on a positive note with a melange of resiny pine, grapefruit, and tropical fruits but then takes a turn with some harsher herbal and straw notes. The herbal flavors linger a bit in the aftertaste and, for me, lessen the experience. Good mouthfeel and carbonation. Overall this beer is of course simply a vehicle to showcase the Equinox hop and given my experience here I can say I'm not a huge fan. It's not a terrible beer by any stretch but the herbal hop notes just are too prominent for my tastes.
