Rakau is truly a dual-purpose hop. Its high alpha acid content delivers a soft bitterness, while it also offers tropical aromas of passionfruit and peach. Rakau is versatile and performs well in a wide range of styles, but it's especially recommended for use in hop-forward beers like pale ales and IPAs.
