1. Pacific Gem Hops - Pellets (NZ)

    Pacific Gem fills the brew house with enticing aromas during kettle addition and has been described as producing oaken flavours with a distinct blackberry aroma. Typically used as a first hop addition and makes its presence felt through an excellent tempered bitterness and flavour. Well suited to a wide range of beer styles and lends itself well to European Lager styles of various bitterness levels.
  2. Motueka Hops - Pellets

    An excellent hop in many applications from first kettle additions through to late gift. This hop offers a unique aroma and flavour making it suitable for producing bigger more traditional style Lagers, especially Bohemian Pilsener. 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 Belgian Ales and gives a real edge to Cask Bitter.
  3. Southern Cross Hops - 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.
  4. Nelson Sauvin Hops - Pellets (NZ)

    A hop that requires judicious application in the brew house, this truly unique dual-purpose variety can be used to produce big punchy Ales as well as subtle yet bitter 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.
  5. Pacific Jade Hops - Pellets (NZ)

    Suited for use as a bittering hop with some excellent results also being seen in dual purpose applications, with a soft bitterness attributable to the low cohumulone. The citrus aroma and flavour notes work well to temper malt sweetness in “fullish” Ales especially when used moderately as a finishing hop. Pacific Jade is also well suited to balance dryer Lager styles when employed as an “up-front” kettle addition to showcase its bittering qualities.
  6. Willamette Hops - Pellets (NZ)

    The king of aroma hops in the U.S. with its modest bittering value and the joyous harmony of flowers, fruit, earth and spice.
  7. Riwaka Hops - 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.
  8. Golding Hops - 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.
  9. Wai-iti Hops - 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.
  10. Green Bullet (NZ) Hops - 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”
