Dual Purpose HOP
Lagers, Pale Ales, IPA’s, NEIPA and modern beer styles.
Over successive commercial brewing trials in styles such as Strong Pale Ales and India Pale Ales, Nectaron® has displayed high levels of tropical fruit characters of pineapple and passionfruit as well as stone fruit (peach) and citrus (grapefruit)
First impressions are an intense tropical fruit and citrus aroma during selection.
Nectaron® is at home in any modern beer style where punchy tropical fruit characters are desirable. Its distinctive passionfruit/pineapple character provides an upfront sensation of sweet tropical fruits and it has a unique biotransformation that is noticeably different between both American and English ale yeast strains. Nectaron® shines best when used late or when dry hopping. Not for the faint hearted, Nectaron® delivers a consistent dose of high quality tropical hop aroma every time.
A triploid aroma type developed in collaboration with New Zealand’s Plant & Food Research. Nectaron® Brand HORT4337 is a full sister to Waimea.
Hops are sold in 100g vacuum sealed bags with specific batch details printed on label. Larger volumes are generally available with a discount for larger volume packs.
