Riwaka Hops 100g
Released by the New Zealand Hop Research Centre in 1997, Riwaka came out of a plant-breeding strategy through crossing “Old Line” Saazer with specially developed New Zealand breeding selections. It has a powerful grapefruit, citrus characters from an oil content that is almost double that of its Saazer parent. A punchy addition to the new-world styles of Pale Ale and regional Pilsners. It has an alpha acid level of 4.5-6.5% and is a cult hero that is well established in the New Zealand craft beer culture. One of the great New Zealand hops and in demand internationally. Vacuum packed for freshness.
