1. 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.
  2. 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”
  3. Wakatu Hops - Pellets (NZ)

    Wakatu has an alpha to beta acids ratio of 1:1, along with low cohumulone, accompanied by nicely balanced oils which give this an understated floral aroma atop fresh lime. Alpha acids average 9%, so it makes for an outstanding dual-use hop. It can be added at any stage of the process from first wort to dry hopping. It has also been noted for its flavor stability.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Taiheke Organic Hops - Pellets (NZ) (FKA Organic NZ Cascade)

    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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
