A Note on This Beer
“Equilibrium has emerged as a premiere producer of New England-style IPA.” @HopCulture
When Equilibrium’s Pete Oates decided to quit his scientific day job to start a brewery, it was like a big, delicious gift to hopheads everywhere.
Pete’s knowledge of all things liquid (a PhD is in water chemistry!) combined with his love for craft beer, has helped his crew create some of the most popular brews in the country.
And today, we’re offering all of you hazefiends an opportunity to taste two exceptional IPAs from Pete's rockstar team!
Fluctuation Double NEIPA ranks #30 for IPAs in New York State, and is one of the Top 150 Hazies in the country according to BeerAdvocate!
Pete and his crew harnessed the bright bounty of 100% PNW Citra Hops to craft this top-rated IPA. They coaxed out some serious flavor from these cones: it sings with tropical notes of tangy passion fruit, bright mango, juicy pineapple, and lush lychee. But, the real succulent kicker is the huge, hazy flush of sweet peach.
Of course, Equilibrium wouldn’t be crowned one of the best if they didn’t balance this fruity hazebomb with a dank, pine-sap bitterness, soft, smooth mouthfeel, and barely perceptible 8.1% ABV!
Next up is Enso, a special Imperial IPA near and dear to Equilibrium. It takes some of the brewery-favorite characteristics of their other IPAs, and rolls them into one amazing brew.
Galaxy and Citra Hops create a pineapple, orange, and lemon sorbet aroma, while adding tantalizing tropical flavors of bright passion fruit, drippy melon, and juicy peach. Additions of lactose alongside Equilibrium’s signature “EQjuice” hop treatment build an extra creamy, lime push-pop flavored finish.
Finally, the brewers used a tried and tested grain bill borrowed from Equilibrium’s smoothest sippers for a soft texture and thirst-quenching drinkability.
These brews don’t come wrapped in a bow, but they would make an excellent present for your favorite hop-fiend friend. Or, just treat yourself to a tasty 2-pack — every hop-lover should try an IPA from this amazing crew.
