Can to chalice. Huge thick head, hazy orange color. Big fruit aroma, tropical fruit taste with mango, orange, melon. Incredibly smooth. Amazing juice bomb. Scary drinkable - can't tell at all this is 8%+. One of the best beers I've tasted in recent years.

Latest batch, worth mentioning as there have been tweaks and adjustments to this beer along the way, as the wizards of EQ get this beer perfect.

The darkest Flux iteration for sure,tannish orange, very turbid with a few chunks, killer thick two finger off white topper that leaves bas relief lace behind.

Full strength aroma, and then some, featuring, sweet and bitter orange, mango, floral notes, doughy sweet, and other unidentifiable tropical and citrus notes.

Full strength taste, with all the flavors of the aroma centered around some killer mango notes that create a wonderful flavor go around as the beer opens and warms. Just the right amount of pith bitter in the finish to keep this juicy masterpiece on the rails.

EQ's trademark super soft but not watery body, low carb., thick with hops and malt body but super refreshing and easy drinking, and a juciy finish that is clean as a whistle. There is zero alcohol presence.

What can I say except if the rest of the country is lucky their locals will take notice of what EQ is doing and try to provide it to their neighbors like EQ does for us here.

Pours a cloudy deep yellow color with a thin foamy head. Head retention is decent. Lacing is very good. Having a hard time with the aroma. Not very strong. More of a tropical fruit aroma. Guava, maybe pineapple predominate with some mild piney resin. Nice juicy taste. I get some guava, maybe melon and mild pineapple. Some good bitterness on then end; maybe even a little peppery. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Treehouse is my house brew...so I knows what I speaks of...This is tasty--- Ive liked other EQs like MC2, but havent been wowed before Fluctuation.... All the usual flavors for a NE IPA are there, and then there's a melon, guavaish note that I personally really enjoy---reminds me of an early Curiosity, 11 or 12 I think.....

Hazy orange right out of the can..looks like the sludge at the bottom of a bottle of OJ
Smell is grassy with some very nice citrus overtones..pineapple, mango and guava..taste is citrus as mentioned before..super smooth for an 8% abv beer, no bitterness at all....easily the best equilibrium beer ive had and one of the best ipas ive had all around..exceptional beer..if you love NEIPA's..seek this out!!
