2020 NZ Moutere
2020 NZ Moutere 14.5% AA T90 pellets.
A triploid variety bred from Southern Cross and a New Zealand male, Moutere™ was released in 2015. Moutere's high alpha and low cohumulone make it an excellent bittering hop, but brewers will find it difficult to not make use of its pungent tropical aromatics and high oil content for aroma additions. Given its outsized personality, Moutere™ is a big hop for big IPAs, but its tropical flavours are also great for mixed-culture fermentations, wheat beers, and fruited hoppy styles.
Intensely tropical and fruity with dominant grapefruit and passionfruit notes, and undertones of spry hay, earthy baking spice, and resinous pine.
Alpha Acid (%): 15.5 - 18
Beta Acid (%): 8 - 10
Co-Humulone (%): 24 - 28
Total Oils (ml/100g): 1.5 - 1.9
