Bred in New Zealand. A triploid high-alpha variety bred by HortResearch Centre at Riwaka and released in 2004. Pacific Jade’s ancestry includes New Zealand First Choice and an “Old Line” Saazer. 

Dual purpose. Pacific Jade’s respectable alpha levels give it good bittering power, but with a very distinctive contribution to aroma and flavor when used as a late addition. The mix of fruit and black pepper character does nicely in pales, IPAs, and hoppy Belgians or lagers. 

Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Mild to moderate with musky fruit (melon, lime, blood orange) and a distinct freshly-ground black pepper spice element. s.
