Ekuanot

Ekuanot, pronounced Ee-Kwa-not was Equinox not too long ago, and before that, it was known only by its brand number ‘HBC 366’. A versatile dual-purpose hop it is most often used late in the boil or when dry-hopping. However, it packs plenty of alpha-acid punch to take on the bittering side of brewing too, and has been used successfully in many single-hop beers.

Developed by Hop Breeding Company and released in 2014, Ekuanot® HBC 366 cv. 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 colour by autumn harvest.

Ekuanot, pronounced Ee-kwá-not, is a cross between the patented variety Warrior and a non-patented wild male found on a commercial plot. The goal was to try and coax a higher yield, but keep Warrior’s high alpha-acid content, and gain some of the better traits from the wild father. In 2003, one plant was selected for expansion and after a total of 13 years it was finally released in 2014.

Due to a trademark dispute, this fantastic hop strain with aromas of lime, green pepper, papaya and berry took a while to become Ekuanot but the great thing is that it did not disappear.

Used mainly for its strong aroma characteristics, Ekuanot has a vigorous growth rate and matures moderately late in the season. It packs a lot of citrus punch and sometimes background notes of apple, sage and even eucalyptus can be found.

Ekuanot is a hop variety with tremendous brewing potential. Because of the vast array and complexity of aromas it can provide it is most often used late in the boil or when dry-hopping. However, it has plenty of alpha-acid punch to take on the bittering side of brewing too and has been used successfully in many single-hop beers.
