Pacific Jade Hop Pellets


Default Title

A triploid high-alpha variety bred by HortResearch Centre at Riwaka and released in 2004. Pacific Jade’s ancestry includes New Zealand First Choice and an “Old Line” Saazer. Dual purpose, Pacific Jade’s respectable alpha levels give it good bittering power, but with a very distinctive contribution to aroma and flavour when used as a late addition. The mix of fruit and black pepper character does nicely in pales, IPAs, and hoppy Belgians or lagers.


Mild to moderate with  fruit (melon, lime, blood orange) and a distinct freshly-ground black pepper spice element.


Alpha Acid (%): 12 - 14
