Formerly known as Equinox, Ekuanot™ was developed by the Hop Breeding Company and first released in 2014 as HBC 366. Used for aroma and flavor in IPAs, sours, wheat beers, and other styles requiring strong flavor contribution from hops. Ekuanot™ has been featured in many single-hop beers. Its high oil content (favoring myrcene and humulene in particular) make it a good candidate for late, whirlpool, or dry hop additions. Ekuanot™ is known for delivering a complex array of aromatics, suggestive of lime, apple, melon, berry, cedar, papaya, bay leaves, eucalyptus, clove, sage, and tobacco.
