Equinox IIIPA

Equinox is the time when the sun is directly above the equator and the hours of day night are exactly the same across the world. A moment of perfect solar balance in a time of instability.

Sorachi Ace hops are a hop that was developed by Sapporo in Japan back in the 1980's. It was not a raving success due to it's 'odd' profile. The nose is vanilla oak, and when you drink it you get flavours of orange, lemon zest and coriander. 

I first tried an IPA from Mountain Goat probably 10 years ago and was blown away! I have tried to get my hands on it several times before, but due to its limited availability was never successful. So imagine my excitement when I got my hands on some!

We kept the base flavoursome and clean with a little haze and body to support 10g/L of Sorachi Ace. The result is really refreshing and complex, to the point of confusing... But very drinkable for a IIIPA.

Get your lips around it!
