Formerly known as NZ Cascade but renamed Taiheke as it is now marked different from the original cultivar.

Taiheke is a dual purpose hop with brilliant citrus grapefruit and lime characters.

It works well in single hop beers and blends beautifully with other NZ heavyweights such as Motueka and Riwaka.

It is typically used in New World style pale ales and IPA's.
