An up-and-coming hop with pronounced aroma, tight cone structure and notably high oil content. Noted for an indescribably unique berry-and-fresh-pepper character.


The variety was named after the spring and fall equinox as it bursts out of the spring soil in vibrant yellow color and gradually matures to deep green by fall harvest.
