look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A 1 pint can, with no canned on or best before date, but should be released on 20th October 2020. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Appearance: A hazy orange yellow colour with a two finger white head that had good retention and left lots of nice lacing.

Aroma: Fruity, passion fruit, pineapple, peach, mango, grapefruit, lime, citrus rind and pith.

Taste: Juicy, melon, pineapple, papaya, peach, lightly bitter, grapefruit, lime, orange, with notes of grass.

Mouthfeel: Slightly creamy, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: A nice and easy drinking NEDIPA, although the melon flavours were perhaps a little strong for me.

Growler into pint glass. Pours a cloudy amber with a coarse, fluffy, off=white head. Initial impression is in-your-face grapefruit, orange, mango, and caramel - lots going on here! Mouthfeel is fairly thick and very juicy - perfect for a DIPA. Alcohol is very well hidden. Finish is juicy and spicy. Excellent DIPA!

L-Grapefruit juice.....1 finger head that leaves thick lacing......hazy, juicy, cloudy

S-loaded with hops.......citrus, mostly grapefruit and lime, some passionfruit

T-hits the spot........very juicy and refreshing........strong notes of the aforementioned passionfruit........grapefruit is also up front......some pineapple sweetness to balance the citrus bitterness........lots of orange juice pulp

F- very drinkable....carb is spot on for the flavor........ABV is well hidden

O-wish I bought more than a 4 pack.....very good

Released 4/7/18; drank 4/21/18 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque yellow/orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice eggshell head; a thick curtain of tree-rung lace.

Pineapple, green apple, caramel & dry grass notes in the nose.

Creamy medium mouthfeel. Pineapple & cream flavors up front; dry grass & mild caramel notes in the nose. No booze heat.

A bit odd for the style; it's more complex if not as immediately satisfying. Good, not great.

Hazy golden orange color with full head. Heavy citrus nose with slight dankness. Very juicy and hoppy - mainly orange and apricote with light malty finish - well balanced. Very, very drinkable. Too drinkable? Love Equilibrium DIPAs.

16 oz can, purchased at the source yesterday...$20 for a 4 pack...canned 11-2-17

Pours the expected turbid and inviting shade of lighter yellowy/orangy. L uxorious and frothy off white cap, and leaving loads of fine sheeting all over the glass.

Fruity/yeasty/juicy nose

Complex and super tasty, with more juice/yeasty goodness...notes of oranges, banana custard, a hint of ginger and white pepper...delicious...go trade for some if ya can
