Regular price $18.84

The hop that helped to create the craft beer revolution in the USA. Similar to the US grown hop in flavour but with some slight differences due to NZ agronomics and terroir impacting the final characteristics.

It has a citrus character moving towards grapefruit. Great in combination with very aromatic NZ hops like Motueka, Riwaka and Nelson Sauvin.

An alpha acid content of 6-8% allows it to be used as a dual hop for bitterness as well as an aroma hop.

Typically employed with new world Pale Ales, Blonde Ales, Summer ales but don’t let rules stop you from using this grand hop as you choose.

Vacuum packed to retain freshness.Rakau has been developed as a dual hop with alpha acids in the 10% range but delivering “soft” bitterness with low cohumulone levels of less than 25% of the alpha levels.

So suitable as both a bittering and aromatic hop.

Bursting with a lot of the typical New Zealand fruity character, it can be used for multiple additions with late hop character delivering tropical fruit aromas of passionfruit, mango and peach.

Quite high levels of oil with an H/C ratio typical of classical aroma varieties.

An excellent hop for late hop additions where a prominent hop character is desired in beers such as Pale Ales, ESB’s, and IPA’s.

Vacuum packed for freshness.
