Hops from New Zealand

    Rakau Organic Hop Pellets (NZ)

    Rakau is a standout hop throughout the selection process due to its inherent intensity of aromas lifted from a heavy weight of oils. Selectors generally are agreed that the dominant fruitiness is that of fresh stone fruit such as apricot. Great results over several brewhouse applications have been seen with sensory panels scoring uniformly high on the quality of bitterness as well as unique fruity flavours and aromas, once described as “The whole orchard”. This is the organic version.

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.
  4. Southern Cross Hop Pellets (NZ)

    Used for first addition bittering this hop has no pretence at substitution for noble type. A kettle variety of the highest order Southern Cross imparts a soft bitterness with a subtle resinous quality. The essential oil component is such that it can deliver a delicate balance of citrus and spice when added toward the end of boil. Generally selected for its consistency in mainstream Lagers this hop has also ventured into the craft market as a reliable Brewpub mainstay.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Styrian Golding Hop Pellets (NZ)

    Styrian Golding Hops is an aroma variety that has a low alpha acid content of 4.5%-6.0%. This well established traditional variety offers a delicate bitterness with a distinctive flavour and aroma. The oils show moderate myrcene and caryophyllene levels. Very mild, noble hop flavor.
  8. Taiheke (FKA Cascade) Hop Pellets (NZ)

Can do some really great things for the hop advocate when matched up with some of the 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. “A bold hop that makes a statement”
