    Wai-iti Hop flowers. NZ - Crop 2014 (AA 4.2%) Bulk price (450gm+) = $8.50 per 90gm
    This hop has a reasonable weight of oil which is further enhanced as a ratio to alpha based on this variety being selected as a low alpha type to showcase its aroma characters which are startlingly of citrus made up of mandarin, lemon and lime zest..really intense. Low Coh adds to the overall quality of the finish which is soft.

    Breeding: A new hop variety developed by New Zealand Plant and Food Research with release from the New Zealand Hop breeding Programme in 2011. It was selected for its low alpha acid and high oils content. Wai-iti is a granddaughter of the USDA developed Liberty, and is a triploid hop derived from 1/3rd Hallertau Mittelfrüeh.
    Growing: Maturity Early to mid season
    Yield Moderate
    Growth Habit Late shooting, columnar frame
    Cone Structure Compact cones
    Disease Resistance New Zealand is hop disease free.
    Storage Stability Good

    Selection: Selectors comment on the intensity of the aromas, attributable for the most part to the high weight of oil
    and oils to alpha ratio. Freshly squeezed limes with top notes of mixed citrus are the standouts in a heady
    blend of essential oils.

    Brewers Notes:
    Citrus characters apparent in selection have been seen transferred into the finished product as a blend of mandarin and zested lemon and lime peel. Low cohumulone and high levels of farnesene create a rounded clean bitterness when used in single hopped beers. The high oil content fills in all the corners when used in late additions, hop back or for dry hopping.
    “Really tasty”

    Technical Data: HPLC & Oil Composition (Measured within 6 months of harvest, stored at 0 ºC)
    Total Oil 1.6 ml Oil/100 gram cone weight

    Applications:
    Used in both Lagers and Ales where its character builds to develop an excellent finishing bitterness and drinkability. Works extremely well in singled hopped beers while also combining well as a late addition with other varieties to create first rate beers across a wide range of styles.
