  1. 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.
  2. Nelson Sauvin Organic Hop Pellets (NZ)

    Described during selection as “breathtaking” Nelson Sauvin has the unique ability to impart a distinctive cool climate white wine “fruitiness”. The complexity of the oils profile has seen selectors stretched looking for descriptors to document this unique new world variety. A hop that may require judicious application in the brew house, this truly unique dual-purpose variety can be used to produce big punchy Ales as well as subtle aroma driven Lagers. The fruitiness may be a little overpowering for the un-initiated, however those with a penchant for bold hop character will find several applications for this true brewer's hop. This is the organic variety.

    Chinook Hop Pellets (NZ)-1kg

    Chinook is a dual purpose alpha variety, and is good for the beginning of the boil, or mid-additions in brewing. Chinook is popular in American style beers such as Pale Ale and India Pale ale, but extends itself well to Seasonal Ales, and darker beers including Porter, Stout, and Barley Wines. It has a heavy aroma, and somewhat spicy bouquet. Some piney and herbal notes will be evident in a fresh batch.
  4. Golding Hop Pellets (NZ)

    The aroma from Golding is mellow and sweet scented. It is an engaging bouquet that has stood the test of modern brewing time. Brewers continue to use Golding (any of the varieties) in the kettle or for dry hopping for many styles of beers, mostly English and Belgian style ales. This is the variety grown in NZ.
  5. Wai-iti Hop Pellets (NZ)

    Wai-iti is a relatively new hop, with a fresh splash of mandarin-lime notes. Low alpha, low cohumulone and a nice oil mix make this a soft but refreshing choice for a light Spring or Summer ale. It’s a bit like Riwaka, but more smooth and rounded.
  6. Green Bullet (NZ) Hop Pellets

    Green Bullet delivers a very real, traditional bittering quality and hop flavour. A flagship within the New Zealand brewing industry this hop has contributed to several International Brewing Industry Awards. Considered a bittering variety typically for Lager, Green Bullet also carries a solid Styrian characteristic of subtle spiciness which finds it at home in a freshly drawn pint of Bitter or an Irish-style Dry Stout. “utility brewhouse workhorse”
  7. Wakatu Hop Pellets (NZ)

    Wakatu has an alpha to beta acids ratio of 1:1, along with low cohumulone, accompanied by nicely balanced oils which give this an understated floral aroma atop fresh lime. Alpha acids average 9%, so it makes for an outstanding dual-use hop. It can be added at any stage of the process from first wort to dry hopping. It has also been noted for its flavor stability.
  8. Dr Rudi Hop Pellets (NZ)

    A very versatile hop in the brew house where it can be used to deliver a very crisp bitter edge on the back palate as well as excellent aroma qualities. Like most New Zealand varieties the exceptional oil profile sets it apart as a hop with many applications.
  9. Taiheke (FKA Cascade) Hop Pellets (NZ)

    Performs well when used as a single variety across multiple kettle additions or when singled out as a late gift. 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”
  10. Kohatu Hop Pellets (NZ)

    Released in 2011, Kohatu is a relatively new hop grown in New Zealand. It is a big aroma hop with intense floral characters of pine needles and tropical fruit and displays great quality of bitterness and well rounded fruity hop characters.
