Description

Breeding/Development: New Zealand. A dual-purpose  variety from HortResearch released in 2007. 

Brewing Application: Dual purpose. Rakau™ is a total package of high alpha acids and oil content (particularly myrcene) with low cohumulone, making it ideal for the “hoppy not bitter” school of IPA. Also well suited to hop-forward lagers, Belgian ales, or highly aromatic American wheats. 

Sensory: Unique aromas described as, “the whole orchard.” Dominant stone fruits (especially apricot), tropical fruits, and candy.
