Use in brewing

Dual purpose hop.

Lively and lifted lemon and lime notes followed by a background impression of tropical fruits, Motueka™ offers a unique aroma and flavour. Desirable in dual purpose applications due to its relatively high alpha, the variety is an excellent hop in many applications from first kettle additions through to late gift.
