2020 NZ Taiheke® 8.6% AA T90 pellets.
As the first commercially bred hop to come from the USDA-ARS program when first released in 1972, Taiheke is bred from crossing an English Fuggle and a male variety thought to be a crossing of Fuggle with the Russian variety of Serebrianka. A fruit-forward aroma and oil profile makes Taiheke® stand out when used as a single variety throughout multiple kettle additions, or when thrown in as a late addition or for dry hopping duty.
Remarkable levels of citrus notes that lean towards tropical fruit characteristics, such as grapefruit and lime.
