Hop Wakatu Organic (NZ) in pellets T90 in 5 kg bag - This Hallertau Triploid typically has a very restrained floral character which selectors say is atop

an aroma of freshly-zested lime. These excellent brewing qualities carry right through from

selection to the finished beer and it is due, in part to this ability that this hop is selected by

several major brewers internationally. True dual purpose organic hop with enviable alpha:beta

ratio. Measures up on flavor scores as well as flavor stability trials. Often used in International

Premium Lagers.
