Australian hop with a clean and bright tropical character (passionfruit, pineapple) with supporting notes of fresh herbs and pine needles. Similar to Galaxy but lighter and less dominating.
Usage as an Aroma hop, specifically as a whirlpool and dry hop. In trials, late kettle additions were found to emphasize earthy aspects with little fruit, while whirlpool and dry hop additions will maximize impact of its high myrcene fraction. Developed from a seedling bred in Victoria in 2000 shares parentage with Topaz. It was released for commercial production in 2013.
