Ekuanot® is one of the newest hop varietals released and has been received with much acclaim. Released in 2014, Ekuanot® (formally Equinox and HBC 366) has surged in popularity and growing acreage. The ridiculously high oil content (2.5-4 ml/100g!) and desirable aromatics have lead breweries of all sizes to flock to this hop. Great for all beer styles but definitely featured in IPAs and other hop forward beers. Ekuanot® is described as having aromas of melon, berry, orange peel, lime, papaya, pine and fresh peppers. Try it in your next batch and see what flavors you find!
