Seems like Equinox and Columbus would compliment each other greatly.


Smelled like a bunch of different fruit trees planted in a field of cannabis.  ;)



Now this, this is desirable. The next time I hear someone say they smell cat pee in a complimentary way, I'm going to freak.

I'm really liking them and they go well with the other hops. I used the Equinox at a higher proportion and it has a nice fruity flavor and aroma.

I love Equinox and I love Citra, but I didn't like them together that well. They kinda clashed to me. As the beer got older, it started getting better.


Oh boy...just bought a # of Equinox to do a 50:50 with Citra in a couple of brews.  Berths Brewery seemed to like the combo so I figured why not as I love them individually...

That wouldn't happen to be in your backyard now would it?

Paul, I just looked back at my recipe. It was equal parts Equinox, Citra, and Amarillo. My fault. After 4-6 weeks on tap, the combo started to melt together. I can't describe what I didn't like about it, I just know it wasn't my favorite. That doesn't mean it was bad though.

I truly think that Equinox is as versatile as Centennial. I think it has a juiced up centennial-like profile with an added dimension of resin. It just has such a high oil content that it can tend to dominate if it's not held in check.

Citra and Equinox might work really well together for you.... Remember, I'm the weirdo that hates mosaic  :P

Good point - forgot you didn't like Mosaic.  Weirdo

I've read plenty of first hand accounts. As for fruit trees, I've been around several of those.  ;)

I'm the same way. I want to like it, but I just taste a bail of straw with a hint garlic powder.

Out of curiosity guys  - was this on one bag of hops, also commercial Mosaic beers? I guess I've been lucky, I always get a fruitier, less catty version of Simcoe. Sometimes I get a bag of garlicky hops from a variety I normally love. Supposedly harvest related.

I believe its referred to as the mosaic "snarl".

Every.single.one... Homebrew and commercial.

Victory DirtWolf is brewed with mosaic... That's the only one that I've liked.

commercial/ microbrew only for me...that has deterred me from brewing with it.

Will have to try the victory and see.
