EkuanotTM features pronounced aroma characteristics and extremely high oil content. This variety bursts out of the spring soil in vibrant yellow and gradually matures to a deep green color by fall harvest. Aroma and flavor in IPAs, Pales, sours, wheat beers, and other styles requiring strong flavor contribution from hops. EkuanotTM has been featured in many single-hop beers.
