Bred in New Zealand and released in 2011 as a new hop variety developed by New Zealand Plant and Food Research, selected for its low alpha acids and high oil content. Wai-iti™ is a granddaughter of Liberty.

Aroma. Low in alpha acids and cohumulone but comparatively high in oil content, Wai-iti™ delivers strong flavor and aroma when used as a late kettle hop, in the hop back, or as a dry or cask hop. Excellent for hop-driven craft styles as well as wheat beers and dry-hopped sours.

Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Lush and fragrant with dominant notes of stone fruit (notably peach and apricot) with pleasantly intense citric tones of lime and mandarin.
