Use in brewing

Dual purpose hop.

The high alpha of this hop makes it excellent to use as a bittering hop, though it also possesses an aroma with citrus and pine characteristics. This has lead to it becoming very popular within New Zealand brewing.


Northern Brewer


Released in 1972 by the (then) New Zealand Horticultural Research Centre.
