Applications 

A bold fruity hop variety suitable for big styles such as IPAs and Imperial Pilseners.

Breeding

Riwaka Brand 85.6-23 is a triploid aroma type bred during the development of New Zealand Hops with a difference programme through crossing Old Line Saazer with specially developed New Zealand breeding selections. It was first released by New Zealand’s Plant & Food Hop Research Centre in 1997.

Brewing

If you want to say New Zealand Hops in your beer than this variety says it all. The pure weight of the oil character experienced during selection carries right through to the glass. A punchy addition to the new world styles of Pales Ale and New Zealand Pilseners.
