A triploid aroma type developed by New Zealand’s Plant & Food Research . This hop was bred by crossing a New Zealand breeding selection with a Saazer as part of the Hops with a Difference programme.


First impressions are a very lively intense fresh lime followed by a background of tropical fruit and lemon zest…big citrus notes dominate.

Brewing Value:

An excellent hop in many applications from first kettle additions through to late gift. This hop offers a unique aroma and flavour profile suitable for producing bigger styles. Excellent when employed in multiple additions from a single hop bill and sits well on the palate to balance speciality malt sweetness.
An excellent variety for a wide range of styles from Saison through to Pilsners.

"A truly great Hop"


Brings a new world edge to traditional pilsner styles and found internationally in a wide range of styles from lighter lagers to big ales. The weight of oil to alpha integrates it fully with higher gravity types to balance both malt sweetness and body. Extremely versatile in the brewery.
