U.S. Ekuanot T90 Hop Pellets, 1 Pound sealed bulk package

Formerly known as Equinox and HBC 366, Ekuanot was an attempt to keep Warrior's high AA content, gain some of the better traits of it's wild father variety, and coax a better yield out of the crop.  Released in 2014, Ekuanot was the product of 13 years of experimentation and monitoring.

Formerly Equinox, this hop variety is super fun!  Co-humulones are a bit high to make it an awesome bittering hop, but the complex flavor, leaning towards papaya and berries with a fun and distinct chile pepper characteristic, this is my go to for anything outside of the box, such as a Jalapeno Blonde or spicy, habanero blueberry stout!


Ekuanot has a complex and unique character, making it an ideal variety for single hop beers, bittering additions with a pithy, green chile kick, and sweet, tropical fruit characters in late and dry hop additions.  This variety is ideal for S.M.A.S.H beers, and for pushing forward the fruity aromatics of other hop varieties.

Aroma and Flavor

Expect complex arrays of pithy orange, lemon-lime, and tropical fruit with distinct hints of papayas and berries.  In dry hop additions, Ekuanot lends a distinctly sweet-mid palate flavor that can enhance fruity characteristics and even lean towards hints of herbal notes, woody cedar, and subtle, fresh cut hay.

Possible Substitutes for Ekuanot

Ekuanot is another truly unique hop, and as such there is no real substitute.  There may be a blend that comes close, perhaps involving Mosaic, El Dorado and a tropical forward New Zealand variety, but testing is still in progress.
