Hop Rakau Organic (NZ) in pellets T90 in 5 kg bag - A new and relatively unknown hop variety that is a unique offering from New Zealand. Bursting
with a lot of the typical New Zealand fruity character with tropical aroma highlights of
passionfruit, mango, and peach. An excellent hop for late hop additions where a prominent hop
character is desired in beers such as Pale Ales, ESB, and IPA's. Developed as a dual purpose hop
delivering "soft" bitterness.
ORIGIN / HISTORY
It was recently released as result of the dedicated work of Dr Ron Beatson’s research team.
Rakau enjoys the relatively disease free environment of New Zealand, and has not been
associated with any mildews or fungus.
