Riwaka (New Zealand) Finishing Dry 20g Hop Pellet Tea Bag 2019 (Alpha Rating 6.3%)

Riwaka™ Hops are are insanely sought after and we are very lucky to have a small supply to excite you. Very unique aroma hop with powerfully fueled tropical passion fruit character. AA 4-7%.

Riwaka was another hop bred during the development of New Zealand Hops 'hops with a difference' programme, this time through crossing 'Old Line' Saazer with specially developed New Zealand breeding selections. It was first released by New Zealand’s Plant & Food Hop Research Centre in 1997.

Riwaka gives extreme citrus notes which is great for 'hoppy beers', adding aromas of passionfruit, grapefruit, lemon and tropical fruits. It is a real standout and the powerful grapefruit “citrussy” character is often described as 'breath-taking'.

Riwaka has a higher than average oil balance, almost double that of its Saazer parent. It is often seen as the darling of New Zealand hops and the oil character carries right through to the glass.

A bold hop that makes a statement, use it for big styles such as IPA’s and Imperial Pilsners or as a punchy addition to the new world styles of Pales Ale and New Zealand Pilsners.

Finishing Hops

Get Er Brewed finishing hops are a simple way to add a fresh aroma and taste to your beer kit. They can be used by dry hopping ( simply add the infusion bag straight to the wort) or late hopping (placing the bag into hot water to make a hop tea which is then poured into the wort).
