New Zealand Motueka™ Hop Profile
Motueka™ Hops are another newer variety released by the Institute for Plant and Food Research. Motueka™ offers moderate Alpha Acids (6-8%) and has a unique flavor and aroma of fresh tropical limes that can be incorporated into a number of styles. This refreshing and zesty character is perfectly suited for single-hopped IPAs, but also shines in Belgian styles like Saisons and Wits. Can also be used in thirst-quenching Pilsners and Lagers.
Referred to as both New Zealand Motueka and B Saaz hops, this hop varietal has a clear lineage from the Saaz line. Bright notes of lemon, lime, and tropical fruits make Motueka a versatile brewing ingredient that compliments an array of beer styles.
