Equinox comes to us out of HopUnion's Hop Breeding program in the Pacific Northwest. Our initial impression is that it reminds us of some of our favorite American varieties, with a lot of citrus and tropical fruit underscored by a pleasant herbal character. The citrus is brighter in this one, more lemon-lime than orange or grapefruit. The bitterness is present but not
harsh, imparting a slightly resinous, pine-like flavor. The finish is also bright and cooling witha touch of spice. We get the impression of mint,but the growers notes actually reference green apple and green pepper.
