New Zealand grown dual purpose US Cultivar with citrus “grapefruit/lime” characters. Think of US Cascade but with a NZ twist.
Pedigree: English Fuggle with a male selection believed to have been a crossing of Fuggle with the Russian variety Serebrianka
Brewing Usage: Dual Purpose
Aroma: Pleasant, citrus, lime and grapefruit
Typical Beer Styles: Ales
Additional Information: Typically employed in “new world” style pale ales and creative brewers are using it for very intense summer ales where its fruit forward aroma and oils profile make for a refreshing finish.
Performs well when used as a single variety across multiple kettle additions or when singled out as a late gift or dry hopping duty. Can do some really great things for the hop advocate when matched up with some of the other New Zealand aroma heavy weights such as Motueka or Riwaka. A fun hop in the brewery which literally sighs with pleasure when plunged into a hop back.
