New Zealand Pacific Gem

Dual-purpose with aromas and flavors of dry wood and forest fruit.
SKU: GEM

Origin: 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.

Usage: 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.

Botanical Classification:
Family: Cannabaceae
Genus: Humulus
Species: Lupulus

Maturity: Mid-season

Yield: Moderate to high
