Organic New Zealand Rakau Pellet Hops
12% Avg. Alpha. A new and truly unique hop variety from New Zealand. Bursting with a lot of the typical New Zealand fruity character with tropical aroma highlights of passionfruit, mango, and peach. A delicate minerally flavor works surprisingly well in lagers, especially Pilsner. An excellent hop for late hop additions where a prominent hop character is desired in beers such as Pale Ales, ESB, and IPA's. Developed as a dual purpose hop with alpha acids in the 10% range, but delivering "soft" bitterness with low cohumulone levels of less than 25% of alpha levels. Try this in beers calling for Admiral, Amarillo, Simcoe, or Summit.
