Southern Cross

Description

Brewing Quality

Excellent essential oil profiles, low Cohumulone and consistent Alpha acid levels with aroma characteristics to include lemon peel and pine needles underpinned by clean spicy notes. “A hop with many talents” – this variety (generally selected for its consistency in mainstream Lagers), will impart a soft bitterness with a subtle resinous quality, delivering a delicate balance of citrus and spice when added toward the end of the boil.

Origin/History

Bred from a cross between the New Zealand Smoothcone variety and a 1950’s research variety comprised of an early North American ‘Cali’ – English Fuggle cross; Southern Cross was released from New Zealand’s HortResearch hop breeding programme at Riwaka in 1994.
