Description 

MC2 (8.0% ABV) is Photon’s big brother. We literally took Photon’s hopping rate and squared it. This DIPA is our tribute to the amazing relationship that energy and mass are balanced, proportional to the speed of a photon squared. It pours a hazy tangerine color, releasing bright tropical notes of mango, pineapple, and apricot. MC2 tastes like succulent mango juice loaded with chewy hop resins. It’s very drinkable for 8.0%.

MC2 by Equilibrium Brewery is a DIPA, but is very much in the NEIPA style, so it is better suited to BJCP 2015 category 21B (Specialty IPA), versus the typical double IPA style (BJCP 2015 Category 22A). As such, this beer should be all about the hops, and it certainly fits the bill.
