The hop that helped create the craft beer revolution in the US. Similar to the US grown hop in flavour, but some slight differences due to NZ agronomics and terriour impacting the final characteristics. It has a citrus character moving towards grapefruit. Great in combinations with very aromatic NZ hops like Motueka, Riwaka and Nelson Sauvin. An alpha acid content of 6-8% allows it to be used as a dual hop for bitterness as well as an aroma hop. Typically employed with new world pales ales, blonde ales and summer ales.
