Wai-iti hops provide wonderfully bright citrus aromatics that compliment a variety of beer styles. Expect notes of lime, lemon and mandarin oranges that would make a great addition to your Pale, IPA, or Wheat brew.

Wai-iti - (100g Pellet Hop)

A truly modern triploid hop, Wai-iti brings forth a fresh splash of lime and stone fruit. It was released to brewers in 2011 alongside Kohatu by New Zealand Plant & Food Research and features higher beta acids than alpha acids, low cohumulone and robust oil content.

Its heritage consists of notable varieties Hallertauer Mittelfrüh as a 1/3 parent and Liberty as its grandparent. Despite its low alpha content, low cohumulone and high farnesene would suggest a soft bitterness and potential suitability for single-hopped beers.

When brewed as a mid-late addition, Wai-iti’s citrus aromas are said to take a back seat and make way for more of a stone-fruit presence. Wai-iti has been suggested by some as being similar to Riwaka yet more smooth and rounded.
