Rakau Brand 70-4-9 is a New Zealand triploid, purpose bred and selected for its unique dual purpose brewing qualities and characteristics. Re-released from the NZ Hop breeding programme in 2007 for trials under organics and now widely established under conventional cultivation.

Rakau - (100g Pellet Hop)

Was rediscovered and re-released in 2007 by the New Zealand hop breeding program. It is bursting with a big fruit-forward character that is described by the breeder as "the whole orchard". Rakau is a clean and efficient bittering hop at 10 - 11% AA, but it is usually used in later additions to maximize the fresh fruit aroma.

Myrcene oil is the highlight and makes up 56% of the total oils, lending flavors and aromas of apricot, plum, mango, pear, and other stone fruits. Some lighter notes of lime and pine are also present. Rakau has found its niche in the pale ale category and is able to carry.
