DUAL PURPOSE HOP

Ideally suited to traditional German lager styles and finding wider application to a new generation through the international craft market’s insatiable thirst for Pale Ale.
Pacifica brings something of a blend of new and old-world taste descriptors to the brewers’ forum. Orange marmalade aptly describes the citrus aroma notes achieved through late addition. Bittering quality is such that early kettle additions net a soft yet solid finish even in highly bittered beers.
A triploid aroma type developed through by New Zealand’s Plant & Food Research. Pacifica Brand 77-01 was bred through the open pollination of the highly regarded hallertauer mittelfruh variety. Pacifica was released on completion of successful brewing trials in 1994.
