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!
