    New Zealand Waimea™

    Waimea™ is a natural fit for any beer where a powerful hop character is desired.
    SKU: HWAI0044

    Breeding/Development: Waimea™ is a dual purpose hop bred and released in 2012. Known for vigorous growth, Waimea claims parentage from Californian Late Cluster, Fuggle and Saaz.

    Family: Cannabaceae
    Genus: Humulus
