Pacific Jade

Description

Selected for its high average alpha content (12-14%) and Cohumulone levels in the region of 24%, Pacific Jade offers an excellent oils profile as well as “bold” aromas delivering herbal infusions of fresh citrus and crushed black pepper. Suited mainly as a bittering hop providing pleasing, soft bitterness due to its low cohumulone, it has also seen excellent results in dual purpose applications.

Origin/History

Developed by the cross of New Zealand First Choice and an Old Line Saazer Male; Pacific Jade was released from the New Zealand Hop Research Programme by HortResearch Centre Riwaka in 2004.
