Notes: We start off with a giant base off of oats and wheat and use CO2 extract, Citra Incognito, Citra LUPOMAX, and our hand selected Galaxy and Vic secret T-90s on the hotside followed by an insane amount of Citra LUPOMAX, our hand selected Citra, Galaxy, and Vic Secret T-90s for the Double Dry Hop.

Experiments and Enlightenment pours an ELECTRIC yellow with aromas and flavors of tropical passionfruit, papaya, cream sorbet, pineapple, melon, and key lime. Soft and crushable, this beer is straight smoothie juice with a velvety and creamy mouthfeel and an extreme #EQjuice finish that will leave you enlightened after experimenting with multiple sips.

Well, another ambitious brew from Equilibrium. They do aim for high quality brews.

This one pours a little milkier than all those hazy IPAs. Very light color. The aroma (stench) is totally dirty underwear (what you are shooting for with this style). It tastes a bit on the yeasty side of the malt and hops overload. It is a big, wonderful mouthful of chewy hazy IPA goodness.

Recommended. A poor value at $6.42/can.

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy pale whitish yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a thin collar around the edge and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of lime, lychee and passion fruit are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional notes of pineapple.
M: It feels medium-bodied and juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer drinks very easily considering its strength.

Sweet tropical hoppy, slightly malty, and hint of earthy-citrus nose on this one! Taste follows with a sweet and slightly malty, orange-tangerine citrus, and slightly earthy bitter finish...as it warms, a little malty-nuttiness starts to appear. This is really soft on the palate and enjoyable to drink...this is really good!

Pours a vibrant, opaque yellow color with a fluffy but short lived head. Has an enticing aroma that I can't describe well so I won't. Taste is pineapple, tangerine but the hops really shine through with a bit of dankness. It lures you in like a Siren. Velvety mouthfeel with a lot of lacing - probably the best Equilibrium beer I've had to date. Quite enjoyable.

Pours a turbid pineapple color with a dense, creamy white head that provides beautiful lacing. The nose is rife with exotic citrus aromas - passion fruit, papaya, pineapple, and lime.

The passion fruit and papaya are forward on the taste, and there’s a healthy amount of pineapple and lime flavors as well.

The mouthfeel is medium and soft, per the style. A delicious Citra juice bomb, IMHO.
