Motueka is a New Zealand hop that has been used for many years. It was formerly known as B Saaz and Belgian Saaz and is a premier hop. It has floral aromas and lemon, lime and other tropical fruit notes.

It used to be very difficult to get hold of in England until our partnership with Clayton Hops, one of the largest hop farmers in New Zealand. Their partnership has allowed us to get our hands on this fantastic hop, and we are now able to offer it to our customers.

Motueka hops are a New Zealand-grown variety that is known for their citrusy and herbal flavours. They have a strong aroma that is often described as being floral, tropical, and lemony. Some brewers also note hints of black pepper and mint in Motueka hops. The bitterness is also relatively low, which makes them a popular choice for Pale Ales and IPAs.

There are many hops that pair well with Motueka, but some of our favourites include Citra, Amarillo, and Simcoe. These hops all share the same citrusy character as Motueka, and they also blend well with the malt flavours in beer. For example, Citra and Amarillo hops can be used in conjunction with Mosaic hops to create a delicious New England Style IPA (NEIPA).
