Rakau Hop Profile

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 9 - 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.

Aroma: tropical fruit aromas of passionfruit and peach

Alpha Acid: 9-11%

Typical Usage: dual purpose.
