1. Dr Rudi Hops - 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.
  2. Taiheke Hops - 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”
  3. Kohatu Hops - 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.
  4. Moutere (ex Brooklyn) Hops - Pellets (NZ)

    Brooklyn is a big hop delivering high alpha acid with a generous weight of oil while its lower cohumulone provides a soft well-structured but solid bitterness. Sensory panels describe the flavours and aromas in the finished beer to be that of grapefruit, tropical and passionfruit.
  5. Waimea Hops - Pellets (NZ)

    Waimea is a new New Zealand variety (2012), originally bred for high alpha and bittering qualities, but it is really a dual-use hop. It’s fresh-crushed citrus and understated pine characteristics are very prominent despite its high alpha content. It is useful across many different beer styles.
  6. Pacifica Hops - Pellets (NZ)

    The Pacifica brings something of a blend of new and old-world taste descriptors to the brewers' forum. Orange marmalade aptly describes the citrus aroma notes achieved through late addition. Bittering quality is such that early kettle additions net a soft yet solid finish even in highly bittered beers.
  7. Sticklebract Hops - Pellets (NZ)

    Originally selected as a high yielding alpha variety Stickbract later became a dual purpose mainstay of the New Zealand Brewing Industry. Aroma is characterised by citrus and pine needles which this heirloom hop carries into the brewhouse and the finished product. Sticklebract produces quality beers of assertive bitterness while also displaying fine aroma qualities and character achieved from both late and dry hopping additions. Citrus and pine characters make up a large portion of the oils fraction which become quite pronounced at heightened addition rates. This hop works well in big ales or as a background to imperial styles.
  8. 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.
  9. Rakau Hops - Pellets (NZ)

    A dual purpose variety typically with alpha acid above 10% and cohumulone less than 25% of alpha acids. Can be used for multiple additions with late hop character delivering tropical fruit aromas of passionfruit and peach. Quite high levels of oil with an H/C ratio typical of classical aroma varieties. The alpha acid content of hops will vary from batch to batch and may vary from the amount shown in the picture.
  10. 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.
