It was bred through the open pollination of Hallertauer Mittlefrüh and released in 1994 and has quickly become a popular choice for brewers around the world.

What are the most citrusy hops from New Zealand?
The most citrusy hops from New Zealand are probably Nelson Sauvin hops. They have a strong grapefruit flavour and aroma, which makes them perfect for IPAs and pale ales. Some other citrusy hops from New Zealand include Motueka and Pacific Jade. All of these hops are high in alpha acids, so they can impart a lot of bitterness to your beer. If you’re looking for some hops that will give your beer a big citrus flavour, then you should definitely try Nelson Sauvin, Motueka, or Pacific Jade.
What are Kiwi hops?

Some breweries that have used Kiwi hops include Sierra Nevada, Dogfish Head, and Stone Brewing. If you’re looking for a beer with a unique flavour and aroma, be sure to try one brewed with Kiwi hops.
