A dual purpose hop with intense fresh tropical fruit characters and excellent finish and bitterness. Initial brewing trials displayed a hop of great versatility with excellent stable flavour and aroma impacts. Fruity characters seen in sensory selections had carried through into the finished product, which was very satisfying. Importantly, the real stand out has been the consistency and quality of bitterness in dual purpose applications.
Works really well in single hop applications to show case its fruity aroma characters balanced by the extraordinary quality of bitterness. Higher addition rates can really pack a fruit driven punch in bigger beer styles.
2023/2024 crop and will be at its best until at least June 2026.
