  • Pours opaque with a brown center. Made me think of oxygenation. Inch of white foam. Lacing is sticky, thick, and coating. Thin, frothy coating covers the beer.

    Aroma is orange forward. Sweetness. Pineapple, dank, apricot, peach, green, and grassy.

    Taste is a bit muted. Sweet orange, pineapple, dank/resin, and pitted fruit.

    Medium body with solid carbonation which is a bit over the top for the style. Dry.

    The aroma is the star with the taste falling off. I really question the freshness and oxygenation of this beer, based on color. A bit over carbonated. Now, I am comparing this to my first beer from Equilibrium: Super Fractal Mandelbrot Set. A good beer, just not their best. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • MC² is Photon’s big brother. We literally took Photon’s hopping rate and squared it. This DIPA is our tribute to the amazing relationship that energy and mass are balanced, proportional to the speed of a photon squared. It pours a hazy tangerine color, releasing bright tropical notes of mango, pineapple, and apricot. MC² tastes like succulent mango juice loaded with chewy hop resins. It’s very drinkable for 8.0%; be careful, this one can sneak up on you.
