2021 RAKAU (NZ)
Alpha Acids: 9 – 13%
Rakau is a dual-purpose hop known for its intense fruit flavor, with strong elements of stone fruit, tropical fruit, and candy. When blended with another punchy, tropical fruit-flavored hop, Rakau can produce delectable flavors reminiscent of sweet, overripe breakfast fruits. Its high oil content, high myrcene, and moderate cohumulone make this hop a top tier selection for hazy IPAs. For best results, use in the whirlpool or as a dry hop.
