“This is a very important beer to us. The Enso circle is our Brewery’s logo and is a symbol of balance, creation, and life. The impossible task of hand drawing a perfect circle creates the imperfections and details that exactly make the Enso beautiful. The beauty of imperfection is what drives us to develop, grow, innovate, and improve in a quest for balance and perfection. We could think of no better symbol to represent our work as a craft brewery as we share our journey and our path while we strive for balance and amazing beer. We’re thrilled that you take this journey with us.”
Appearance: Super hazy pastel yellow with a fairly deep orange tint. Tidy and well kept head which drags a wet lace down the glass.
Aroma: The hop combination of Citra and Galaxy has been used to perfection…sweet, citrusy and piney. Kind of reminds us of Ekim’s IPA’s with its ultra clean and balanced composition. Pineapple, peach, blood orange, vanilla/coconut, frosty fruits and passion fruit then fluffed out by a nice doughy malt. Supoib!
Flavour: Follows on from the nose. Gorgeous tropical fruits and citrus are balanced by this distinct line of clean and slightly resinous pine. Sweet and fleshy tropical fruits pull through the mid and lead to a slightly dry and fruity finish which draws out nicely.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, ultra smooth. Developing dryness in the swallow. Medium body and Co2. The 8.2% ABV though…where is it? Very dangerous.
Overall: It appears we’re inadvertently trying all of EQ’s better beers as we go. The first couple didn’t really excite us but this and MC2 are impressive. Here’s to hoping this trend continues.
