New Zealand Waimea™ Hop Profile

Waimea™ is a dual purpose hop that is well-suited for big, heavy-handed brews. It was developed by The New Zealand Institute for Plant & Food Research and boasts big Alpha Acids (16 – 19%). Because of the high Alpha Acids,¬†Waimea¬†works well as a bittering hop for big IPAs. Waimea’s aroma and flavor is a pleasant balance of fresh citrus and resinous pine. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, and pomelo can be achieved through dry-hopping and whirlpool additions.

Alpha Acids: 16-19%

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.
