aroma profile: Citrus, Tropical Fruit
A triploid aroma type bred during the development of New Zealand Hops “Hops with a Difference” programme, Riwaka is a quintessential New Zealand hop variety. The pure weight of the oil character experienced during selection carries right through to the glass and is a punchy addition to the New World styles of Pales Ale and New Zealand Pilsners.
Aroma: Specific aroma descriptors include powerfully fueled tropical passion fruit with grapefruit and citrus characters.
