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.
All hops are packaged in oxygen, light and moisture barrier bags. They are purged with nitrogen and stored cold to optimize freshness. Resealable packages feature a tear notch and zipper
