Single Hop Series “Ekuanot”
Tasting Notes: Fanø Bryghus’s “Single Hop Series” is a continuing series of ales brewed to showcase the aromatic and flavor profiles of individual hop varieties. Brewed as either a Pale Ale or a NEIPA style, each recipe uses a single hop variety, in this way the beer drinker has an opportunity to develop a clearer understanding of the unique properties that each hop variety possesses and even how to recognize those flavors in more complex recipes.
Ekuanot™ (formerly HBC 366) was commercially released in 2014 as “Equinox” by the Hops Breeding Company
in Yakima, and subsequently renamed due to trademark issues. It has intense and unique fruity and citrus notes including melon, berry, citruslime, apple and papaya. Ekuanot also contains some spicy, green pepper note. This hop brand has high alpha acids content and high essential oil and is known for its vibrant yellow color during its early growth in the spring.
