A Bittering hop

Pacific Gem

New Zealand
Pacific Gem

aroma profile: Earthy, Floral, Spicy, Fruity

A triploid alpha type developed through the New Zealand Hop breeding program, Pacific Gem fills the brew house with enticing aromas during kettle addition and has been described as producing oaken flavors with a distinct blackberry aroma. It is typically used as a first hop addition and makes its presence felt through an excellent tempered bitterness and flavor while later additions deliver citrus and pine aroma notes. Pacific Gem is a good all purpose hop that delivers quality bitterness along with flavor and aromas. It is excellent in international lagers and can also be used in IPA’s and other big styles.

Aroma: Specific aroma descriptors include spicy black pepper and berry fruit aroma characteristics; some brewers have noted delicate blackberry, floral or oak tones.
