Bred in New Zealand. Released in 1987 by New Zealand’s HortResearch Institute, Pacific Gem™ is a triploid high-alpha hop with ancestry including Smoothcone, Californian Late Cluster, and Fuggle. 

Dual purpose. High alpha acid content combined with a somewhat rustic European character (think Brewer’s Gold) make Pacific Gem™ a utility player in the brewhouse. Excellent for hop-forward lagers, farmhouse ales, and many English and American ale styles. 

Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Vivid impressions of wild forest fruit (blackberry, blackcurrant), black pepper, and a warm, oak wood-like background note. Late additions can exhibit a bit of pine and citrus.
