When the earth and the sun align, a new variety of hops is born. A cool little story on how Equinox™ HBC 366 earned its name. During early Spring, Equinox™ comes out of the ground as a bright lime green variety. Over the course of the summer, it gradually turns to a rich, dark green. Equal light, equal dark - Equinox™. From the breeders of Citra® YCR 394 cv, Mosaic™ HBC 369 cv comes the latest varietal release – Equinox™ HBC 366. These hops are generally some of the most sought-after in the industry. The diversified and pronounced aroma characteristics combined with extremely high oil content and a tight cone structure make this hop variety very unique.

Ekuanot™ (formerly HBC 366) was commercially released in 2014 as “Equinox” by the Hops Breeding Company in Yakima, and subsequently renamed due to trademark issues.
