Hops from New Zealand
  1. Moutere (ex Brooklyn) Hop Pellets (NZ)

    Brooklyn is a big hop delivering high alpha acid with a generous weight of oil while its lower cohumulone provides a soft well-structured but solid bitterness. Sensory panels describe the flavours and aromas in the finished beer to be that of grapefruit, tropical and passionfruit.
  2. Pacific Jade Hop Pellets (NZ)

    Suited for use as a bittering hop with some excellent results also being seen in dual purpose applications, with a soft bitterness attributable to the low cohumulone. The citrus aroma and flavour notes work well to temper malt sweetness in “fullish” Ales especially when used moderately as a finishing hop. Pacific Jade is also well suited to balance dryer Lager styles when employed as an “up-front” kettle addition to showcase its bittering qualities.
  3. Pacifica Hop Pellets (NZ)

    The Pacifica brings something of a blend of new and old-world taste descriptors to the brewers' forum. Orange marmalade aptly describes the citrus aroma notes achieved through late addition. Bittering quality is such that early kettle additions net a soft yet solid finish even in highly bittered beers.
  4. Sticklebract Hop Pellets (NZ)

    Originally selected as a high yielding alpha variety Stickbract later became a dual purpose mainstay of the New Zealand Brewing Industry. Aroma is characterised by citrus and pine needles which this heirloom hop carries into the brewhouse and the finished product. Sticklebract produces quality beers of assertive bitterness while also displaying fine aroma qualities and character achieved from both late and dry hopping additions. Citrus and pine characters make up a large portion of the oils fraction which become quite pronounced at heightened addition rates. This hop works well in big ales or as a background to imperial styles.
  5. Pacific Gem Organic (NZ)
    $9.70

    Pacific Gem Organic (NZ)

    Pacific Gem contains a good balance of oils which constantly contributes to its aroma score. A very pleasing hop with useful bittering potential with Alpha Acids at 13 % and above. Pacific Gem fills the Brew House with enticing aromas during kettle addition and has been described as producing oaken flavours with a distinct blackberry aroma. Typically used as a first hop addition and makes its presence felt through an excellent tempered bitterness and flavour while later additions deliver citrus and pine aroma notes. This is the organic variety.
  6. Willamette Hop Pellets (NZ)

    The king of aroma hops in the U.S. with its modest bittering value and the joyous harmony of flowers, fruit, earth and spice.
  7. Pacific Gem Hop Pellets (NZ)

    Pacific Gem fills the brew house with enticing aromas during kettle addition and has been described as producing oaken flavours with a distinct blackberry aroma. Typically used as a first hop addition and makes its presence felt through an excellent tempered bitterness and flavour. Well suited to a wide range of beer styles and lends itself well to European Lager styles of various bitterness levels.
  8. Spalt Select Hop Pellets (Germany)

    Spalt Hops is an aroma variety and has a low alpha acid content at 4.0%-5.0% with a 1:1 alpha beta ratio. This prolific variety is among the noble varieties due to its low co-humulone content and resembles Tettnanger. Spalt has abundance in all of the essential oils including farnesene which is barely traceable in many hop varieties. It is suitable throughout the boil and for dry-hopping German strongholds including Kolsch, Alts, Bocks.
  9. Liberty Hop Pellets (NZ)-100g
    $9.70

    Liberty Hop Pellets (NZ)-100g

    New Zealand grown US aroma cultivar with mild and spicy, subtle lemon and citrus characteristics. Liberty Hops are used in many different fashions and in many styles of beer. It will contribute bitterness at the beginning of a boil, and is used in that capacity often. Liberty is more aggressive on the aroma contribution late in the boil, as it comes equipped with high levels of humulene and caryophyllene oil. Humulene provides the earthy spice and withstands heat better than caryophyllene, which is known for its essence of grapes, peaches, and vanilla.
  10. Riwaka Hop Pellets (NZ)

    If you want to say “hops” in your beer than this variety says it all. The pure weight of the oil character experienced during selection carries right through to the glass. A punchy addition to the new-world styles of Pale Ale and regional Pilseners. A cult hero that is established in the New Zealand craft beer culture.
