Waimea Hops

Granddaughter to Pacific Jade hops, this New Zealand varietal was released in 2012. As a dual purpose brewing ingredient, Waimea hops provide both bittering and aromatic influence on a wide variety of beer styles. With an alpha acid range of 16% to 19%, this super alpha gets its balanced flavor from a bright, fresh aroma of tangelo, citrus, and a touch of woodsy pine. A great hop to use in Pale Ales and IPAs, as well as hoppy Lagers. For a substitution, try other New Zealand varietal Pacific Jade hops.
