Riwaka - 100gm

Possibly the most sought after NZ hop, Riwaka has a unique and powerful tropical passionfruit character with a grapefruit citrussiness. 

It is a bold hop that screams NZ Hops.

It can be and is used in a wide variety of styles, but is particularly well suited to big IPA's and Imperial Pilsners.

Riwaka is used in a number of commercial beers such as Emersons Pilsner, Emersons Bookbinder, and Tuatara Pilsner.
